BEAUTY // imPress Accent Press-on Manicure*

Painting my nails has become the bane of my life. Working in a shop where my hands are constantly dipping into water bowls and pots of cream, my nail colours chip like there is no tomorrow and they look awful by the end of the day. So when I saw that imPress had launched the new Accent Press-on manicure I knew I had to try them out and see if they were the miracle nails I'd been looking for!




imPress Press-on Manicure does what it says on the tin - it's a hassle free way of applying false nails as they are pre glued meaning you have one less job to do and save loads of time from not doing it! These new manicure sets include a few nails that are 'accented' so you get a more fashionable edge to your manicure. It's really nice to get patterned nails because I cannot do nail art for toffee so this is a cheat way to do it :)

This gorgeous set is called Bells & Whistles and is a mint green with the accent nail being a kinda fair isle meets Aztec style print. I love that they are colourful without being too garish. I always paint my nails in bright colours for work because we have to wear black and white with any accessories therefore my nails are always bright. The nails themselves are very high quality and are described as 'ultra gel shine'. They do in fact have the exact same shine as gel nails which is perfect if you re after a temporary gel nail effect rather than committing to a full set of gels.

I have tried the imPress Press-on manicures before and I love how easy they are to apply - all you do is peel off the backing and press firmly to the natural nail.I always leave mine to 'set' for about half an hour; this means I avoid water or anything that is too strenuous on the nails such as typing or filing them... basically anything that would ruin a normal manicure half an hour after you'd had it done! You do have to file these a bit because the tops are always uneven and I'm guessing this is just how they are made because I've had it with every set of impress nails I've had. It's not a bad thing - they just look a bit more natural and neat once you file the tops and imPress supply a tiny little file that works a treat.

I've been wearing these for almost 5 days and I am glad to say that the nails wear really well. They are comfortable and a bit flexible so you can go about every day life without worrying your nail will snap off mid-car door opening. One thing I will say about the flexibility is that whilst they are great for anti-snapping, sometimes the ends bend a bit and curl at the edges. This tends to be more towards the end of their wearing-life (I'd say I really noticed it about after about 4 days of wear) so just be careful. They are a nice, short length too so they don't get in the way of texting, typing, eating,... all the important things ;) Also, they actually last! They survived underwater which is a relief at my job and means I can have nice nails for work sometimes.

I'm wearing them as I'm writing this review so I can't really comment on how these particular nails are to remove however previous sets from imPress have been really simple to take off - I'm pretty sure I just wiggled them off and they left no damage at all. It does say if you can't get them off that way, you can use a bit of nail polish remover to loosen the glue. I love wearing the imPress nails and I won't hesitate to buy another pack of these. They are perfect for my lifestyle when I need a quick manicure that lasts at work and I can easily take off once bored. Thank you imPress!

  5. In his book The Beauty of Holiness and the Holiness of Beauty, John Saward, drawing on the work of St.Thomas Aquinas, defines beauty as: "the gleaming of the substantial or actual form that is found in the proportioned parts of a material things." In other words, while one can find beauty in the outward appearance, one must go deeper to the nature or the essence of the thing. Glitter Lipgloss
