I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing and reviewing purposes. When I first received this product from Influenster, I was very hesitant to try them out. I have tried press on fake nails in the past and did not have very good results from them. However, since I got this product for free to test I figured what's the harm in giving them a try.
First of all I think that the packaging is ingenious! It is a great way to display, market, and contain their product and it is different from the other press on nail packaging that I am used to seeing. After I opened the case, I went about picking out the sizes for my nails. Overall, there was a decent variety of sizes and I was generally able to find ones that fit all of my nails. Applying the nails was very simple. Sometimes the plastic backing was tough to peel off, but I assume thats because the adhesive was just very strong or I was just being weak. After taking off the backing I placed the nail as close to my cuticle as possible so that it would look natural, and then pressed firmly and held it there for a few seconds. It felt secure as soon as I put it on and I probably could've gotten away without holding it, but I did it anyway just to make sure. After I applied all of my nails, leaving the thumb nail for last on each hand, I went over the top edges with a nail file to try to remove an obvious white tab. Since they are plastic filing them was a little annoying and took some patience to get them how I wanted them, but I was eventually satisfied. This white tab at the tip was the only thing about these nails that I did not like. Yes, I was able to remove them on all of my nails, but the filing also slightly removed some of the design from the nails in some areas however, it was not very noticeable if you did not know to look for it.
The product claims to last for 10 days, so I was very interested to see if they would really last that long. They felt very secure once they had been applied so I was optimistic, but still skeptical because of my previous experiences with press on nails. These nails however, remained secure for two weeks! They probably would have stayed on longer than that, but at that point I had started to mess with them and had to take them off. Like I said previously, I had to file them to get rid of the tab which caused some issues with chipping and snagging on things. However, this was not that big of an issue for me.
Overall, I enjoyed how natural and secure they felt on my nails, and received many compliments on how pretty and cool they were. They did not damage my nails at all when I took them off, and they were pretty easy to pop off. The material that they were made out of was somewhat soft and pliable compared to other press on nails I have tried which I found to be very nice and interesting. I would definitely recommend this product to a friend, and will more than likely purchase them to use in the future. I was very surprised by how nice these nails were, and very happy to have finally found press on nails that stay on for longer than a few days!
Thank you Influenster and Broadway Nails for introducing me to this product!
