Kiss ImPress Press-On Manicure

Today I have some really cool nails to show you. These are the Kiss ImPress Press-On Manicure and they are something I have talked about previously on the blog. I love these nails as an easy way to get great looking nails (and nail art) in a pinch. I always have one or two packs in my cupboard just in case.

I threw out the box before checking the style name or number so unfortunately I don’t have that to share, but I can tell you they were probably about 2 years old so I don’t think these ones are in stores any longer. They do have a ton of new styles out now, so check those out on the Kiss ImPress website.

I tend to use these when I break a nail or two and want to cover them up, or if I have an event to attend and don’t have time to do my own nail art or polish. Applying the Kiss ImPress Press-On Manicure takes me about 10 minutes to do on myself and they look amazing. They also last for a full two weeks with almost no wear and tear. I usually paint over them by day 7 or so, which allows me to keep a great looking nail shape and switch up the colour.

They look so good and only took a few minutes to apply!

I love how simple these are to apply. All you have to do is find the right size for each nail (which can take up some time the first time you use them) and then peel off the tab and stick them on. They don’t need harsh glue or any special supplies, and they don’t do any damage to your nails.

Sizes of the Kiss ImPress Press-On Manicure

Sorting my sizes!

Usually these kits come with 11 sizes for each hand, so you get 22 nails and only really need 10. Some kits with accent nails or special designs can come with 30 nails, so you have even more variety. There are tiny numbers printed under each nail to tell you the size. I keep a little note in my phone with my nail sizes so it makes the process even quicker for me.

The photo below is on Day 9 of wearing the Kiss ImPress Press-On Manicure. After over a week of wearing, including typing, dish-washing, showers, and other daily things that can chip nail polish, these still look pretty amazing. You can see some slight wear and tear at the tips, especially on my pointer finger, and a little bit of growth on my ring finger. Overall though they look way better than a coat of nail polish would have looked after 9 days.

These fake nails are nothing like the old-fashioned ones that ruin your nails, and they are nowhere near as pricey as salon nails. I never have gotten Shellac or Gel nails or any other false nails at a salon, and with these nails at the drugstore I never will. The Kiss ImPress Press-On Nails retail for $9.99 CAD and can be found in Wal-Mart, London Drugs, and Jean Coutu stores.

When you’re in the mood for quick nail art, need to cover up a few broken nails for a special event, or just want to spice up your look, the Kiss ImPress Press-On Manicure is an affordable and stylish option.

ImPress Gel Manicure Press-On Nails Oval Edition

I have been a big fan of the ImPress Press-On Manicure sets for a long time, and recently I discovered that they make another kind of press-on set that is even better… oval shape! These ImPress Gel Manicure Oval Edition sets have the same easy application and stylish designs, but they come in a new nail shape. How cool is that?!

Side note: I have no idea why they are called Gel Manicures now, since they are still the peel-off/press-on nails.

I have always wanted oval shaped nails but I cannot seem to grow my natural nails out that way. As chic as it looks on Kylie Jenner, I had given up all hope that I would ever have oval nails. When I found out about these ImPress Gel Manicure kits in the new oval style I was so excited.

I absolutely love how quick and simple these press-on nails are to apply, and I have it down to a five minute process. They are waterproof and last for a full week without falling off, and I usually get away with almost now tip wear. They come in a ton of patterns and designs, with different colours and accent nails in some kits.

You can see my full review on ImPress Press-On Nails here, where I wrote about the style Boogie Down, which is a bright coral glitter with a chevron accent nail, shown to the left.

I wrote a full post including instructions on how to do the simple application process. It seriously takes five minutes and it lasts for a full week!

I reserve my use of fake nails like these to only times when I really need them, so I am saving these amazing oval shaped Impress nails for the next time I have a big event or break a nail badly. I cannot wait to wear these stylish shaped nails and you can bet I’ll be posting all over my Instagram when I get a chance to wear them.

Unboxing my first Babe Box

Have you heard of the newest beauty subscription box? Babe Box is a Canadian company that I discovered on Instagram a few months ago. They are a new brand that offers a beauty subscription box that arrives at your door each month with some fun goodies. I ordered the very first Babe Box they offered back in May, and here it is to show you!

I already subscribe to the monthly Julep Maven boxes, which have nail polish and beauty products, but I was curious about this new beauty box too. I love my Julep Maven boxes and have reviews them in April and May.

The neat thing about Babe Box is that it doesn’t only have one type of product. There are beauty, nail, hair and other items included which give it a nice variety.

ImPress Press On Manicure: Boogie Down

Have you ever tried the ImPress Press On Manicure fake nails? I have never been a fan of fake nails and would never get them at a salon, but these drugstore ones are incredible. I only use them when I have a particularly bad break or need to have perfect nails for an event, but I always have a few boxes in my closet for those times. The ImPress Press On Manicure comes in a huge variety of colours, patterns, and different styles so you are sure to find a set to suit your mood.
