So I recently received these press on manicure nail covers via influenster (voxbox) and though I have seen and heard about this before, I haven’t really tried any of them. As a kid, my cousin and I used to play with fake stick on nails from Barbie and yes, they do last for a whole day – I mean it is good considering we play with water with our fake sticky nails on! But this imPRESS Press-ON MANICURE claims to last up to a week and in the container, there are 24 nail covers in 12 different sizes.
The packaging is really cute, I like how it is smart (and gimmicky) to place the nail covers at the front to show how the nails will look like inside a nail polish bottle. Same with the traditional bottles, twist the cap to open and pop the container and you will see the press on nail covers.
It is definitely sad that out of the 12 sizes, nothing, absolutely nothing fits any of my nails. I want to say that maybe my nails are just shaped weirdly but I am having mixed thoughts about this press on nails. Unfortunately as I tried on the nails to see which one fits my nail bed, I really was not able to find anything that will fit any of my nails. One reason is the nails included are too wide and mine are narrow and long. So even if I cut my nails short(er), the tip of my nail still shows plus the shape of the press ons generally runs wide and short, even with the longest / biggest nail cover.
I guess in general, these will fit better on “normal set of nails” and mine, I guess is not normal. My nail bed runs narrow and long and since the press ons are the opposite, it is really hard to find a good match at least to make my press on nails look decent on me. I cannot comment on the longevity / staying power as I did not wear the press ons for too long. I cannot go out with my nails looking like those in photos – really not socially acceptable!
Below are my real nails for comparison
So this is a no go for me but it will definitely work for others with similar nail shape. As for me, I am absolutely fine with my original nails and maybe in the future I will try gel or shellac nails.
