I never wear fake nails, mostly because I am lucky enough to have long and strong nails, but also because I had a very bad experience with nail glue when I was younger. For some reasons, a drop of glue found its way to one of my eye and I almost lost it. Tragic, yes. A few weeks ago, I received imPress press-on fake nails from Broadway Nails, so I was happy I could finally try on cool & flawless manicures without fearing the wicked glue! ha! These are the most ridiculously easy fake nails to apply, I swear! At first my hands felt very weird but I ended up liking the feeling of such solid nails A LOT. Also, I wore them for at about a week before I decided to take them off (my nails had grown, pulling the artificial nail away from the cuticule). The quality of the product, the no-drying time factor (because seriously, aren’t you tired of waiting for your nail polish to dry?!!) plus the effortlessness of sticking them on are three major upsides that will probably lead me to wearing artificial nails more often.
Each set contain 24 nails (different sizes, but you can probably make 2 full manicures out of it), a cleaning towel and a nail file. You will find them at, among others, Wal-Mart, Brunet, Uniprix and Pharmaprix for about $10, which is WAY LESS than a salon manicure!
Here’s how to apply:
- Cleanse natural nails with enclosed pad
- Choose the size that best fits your nail and peel off backing
- Align nail with cuticule and press down firmly in the middle, and on the sides
- Repeat for each finger, and you’re done!
To remove the nails, simply peel off from sides! Very easy and damage-less.
