I received these in the mail and it was a complete surprise! It couldn’t have come at a better time because I removed the rest of my gel nail remnants and was just about to go to the salon. I haven’t used press-on nails since I was 16 years old, so this kind of made me a nostalgic. lol
So, let’s get into it:
As you can see in the first picture, I received 2 different styles, one with a black lace pattern, and the other had a more oil slick look (Villains):
The “Villains” set had some inspirational characters on the side, I love that!
I decided to go with the Black Lace pattern:
First, the packaging is great! They are shaped in a nail polish bottle and the cap twists off just like a polish. It makes for great storage with the rest of my nail polishes on display in my studio. They come with 12 nail sizes and a total of 24 nails which is great in case I need to replace one, or if I choose to do another full set later on.
The instructions are easy, pick your size for your nail, peel and stick! The nails also came with a prep pad, which by the smell, seems to be an acetone type of remover to ensure a good clean bonding with the adhesive.
The sizes I chose fit my nails well, however my natural nails tend to curve down. There is a little bit of space between the nail and the press-ons which kind of makes me concerned, however I will try them out for the week with normal wear and tear and see if they last.
I do believe these are a good alternative to painting or salon nails, taking less than 20 minutes to apply and perfectly shaped.
The pricing for these range from $8.99 to $10.99 for patterns and they are available at Walmart, Target, London Drugs, Loblaws, Jean Coutu, Katz and more.
Here is the finished product…. so, on with the week and we’ll see how these nails can hold up with my hectic life! 🙂
Thanks again to Influenster for sending these complimentary for testing purposes.
