Makeup Monday: imPRESS Nails

Lately, I've been obsessed with changing up my nails. Problem is, I'm not very good at painting my own nails, so I end up looking for creative ways to avoid this. My typical solution to this problem is to get a manicure at the local salon (usually I opt for shellac). However, since being so into polishes lately (more posts to come soon) I have wanted to switch up my options more frequently. 

I have typically had good luck with press on nails, so I thought I would give them another go! I was gifted this set by the lovely Diana from DARE Magazine. They are a limited edition set, so the colour name wasn't printed on the package (sorry guys). I've actually had so many compliments on this set of nails, that I think I'm going to put another set on when they eventually come off. I have so many great things to say about these imPRESS Nails, and very few negatives to share. I applied these nails last Tuesday (the 9th) and they are still on today (the 15th). Things I love about them:

1) I am obsessed with this midnight blue colour. I got so many compliments, I now know what shade of polish I have to buy next. 
2) I love the shape of the nails, because I'm such a "square shape" girl-- these were perfect!
3) The nail stickers were adorable. I only chose to use the sparkle ones, but there were some psychedelic ones too. 
4) They are so simple to apply. 
5) They are long-lasting and very durable. 

Unfortunately, I did have to replace both of my index fingers this past weekend, which is probably because I use my index fingers the most to perform daily tasks. The nail kit unfortunately only comes with one nail buffer wipe, which is not helpful if you need to reapply any nails. I re-did my nails on the weekend, using the tabs but they came off soon after. I ended up just re-applying with some nail glue and they're all good now!

You can purchase these nails from any of your local pharmacy/drug stores in Canada (Walmart/London Drugs) or the USA (CVS/Walgreens/Walmart/K-Mart). Full list available here.
