VoxBox Review: imPress Press-On Manicure by Broadway

Hey all,

So a few months back I (Steph) signed up with a community called Influenster which is a site where you earn badges by making reviews on products, filling out quizzes and being active in the social media community. It's free to join and eventually when you earn enough badges they send you beauty boxes of products to review. I was lucky enough to recieve the imPressManicure VoxBox which contained two different kinds of the imPress Press-On Manicure by Broadway. Each package came with 24 nails and 12 different sizes... One size sure does not fit all in this world!

I've asked Jenn to tag team this post with me because honestly I wasn't all that excited over the nails and I needed her encouragement. They sat on my table for 3 weeks before I asked Jenn if she would review them with me. I'm not really into press on nails or putting anything on your nails other than just nailpolish.. but this actually changed my mind and I was pleasantly surprised.  Let's get to it!

Application was very easy, but it is advised that you pick the sizes required and lay out in order before starting. There is no glue with these nails, instead there is a sticky adhesive that is already on the nail. Once you peel off the clear protector (be careful not to touch the adhesive as it will make the nails not as sticky). The sticky adhesive only covers about 1/2 of the nail. 

Steph's review:
When I first saw these nails I thought.. "This nails are incredibly long and square! Ugh.. not my style" and then Jenn told me you could cut/file them down. Yay! That made the experience sooo much better for me. I HATE long nails! The application process was sooo incredibly easy it made me consider buying some! The one thing I would recommend doing is cutting your (own) nails down beforehand which is something I had forgotten to do. On the drive home from Jenn's I ended up getting my hand stuck in my hair.. which was .. fun to say the least. I lasted less than 5 hours because after I ate dinner and saw all the food stuck in-between my nails I wanted to be sick! Maybe tacos was the wrong choice as my first meal with the nails? I would buy these if I was going to a wedding, bachelorette party or for a night out.. but they don't last long enough for everyday wear.

Rating: 2.5/5

Jenn's review: 
I loved the simple application process, and the cool designs that this product provides. I didn't like the way they felt on my nails. I did suck it up and left mine on and was careful with them to try and make them last as long as possible. They ended up falling off one by one almost 24hrs later. My hair also kept getting caught in the gaps, ouch! I think this is a great product for the person who wants fancy nails for a date night out or special occasion, but does not like committing to nails for a longer period of time. Removal of these nails were simple and fun, the nails that did not come off on their own were easily peeled off. I likely do not see myself purchasing these in the future.

Rating: 2/5

So overall I'd say we would both likely not buy these unless we found a spectacular design or had a special event to go to. 

Thanks so much for reading our review!

Steph and Jenn
