I love having my nails painted, they are part of my normal beauty routine and I’ve found some amazing brands that do actually stay on longer than a few days before they start to chip. When it comes to false nails, that’s where I get in a mess. I remember the very first set of stick on nails I tried as a teenager, the sticky bit was this tiny bit of tape and the nails literally fell off within a few hours. A few years later I gave a different set a try, this time the shape was the problem as none of the false nails seem to fit properly around my deep nail beds.
However I think I have found a false nail winner with imPRESS Nails.
I was very kindly send two packs of imPRESS Nails to try, one in Power Up*, a deep purple with a gold glittery option, and Swept Away*, a bold red with a black and white polka dot option, both packs look absolutely gorgeous and are right up my street.
imPRESS nails come with the sticky back already in place so no fiddling around with any glue. All I needed to do was find the right size for each nail, peel the clear tab away from the sticky backing and gently press the nail into place. It couldn’t have been any easier, I was so impressed at how simple it was and it literally took me ten minutes. The imPress Nails felt so secure, obviously false nails have advanced a lot since I tried my first set. They were still well and truly stuck on three days later, for me that’s pretty good going. The nails survived me opening packages, washing my hair, even popping out medication from the blister pack which is usually were I’d chip normal nail polish.
I chose to apply Power Up as I think it’s a stunning shade to match my Autumn outfits, I kept turning my hand back and forth like you do when you’ve just had your nails professionally manicured. I also think Swept Away is a beautiful shade, so I’m saving that one to wear on Christmas Day. ImPress Nails are available in a vast range of colours so there’s bound to be something to suit your style. Each set costs £7.99 and you get 30 nails in each pack, so you should find a perfect match to fit. If you have a night out or special occasion coming up, maybe you just fancy having beautifully manicured nails for once without the hassle of going to a salon, then I definitely recommend imPRESS Nails. You can purchase them from Superdrug. in store or online, I’ll definitely be picking up a few more sets for some events I have over the next few months.
