For me, press-on nails conjures up thoughts of cheap looking plastic nails (that don’t stay on but that I adored) along with using sun-in to color my hair and colorful body glitter—all things that I left behind in my teenage years for a good reason. But, they are surprisingly making a new and improved comeback and these nails are now the ultimate fashion accessory. KISS Nails teamed up with Stacey Bendet for alice + olivia to design a fashion-forward collection featuring six nail designs.
The imPRESS Press-On Manicure ($5.99) redefines the press-on experience by using a one-step gel manicure that only takes a few minutes to adhere. Plus, the SuperHold Dual-Layer Adhesive requires no glue, won’t damage nails and offers hassle free removal.
“Like alice + olivia, imPRESS is not afraid of bold patterns or vibrant colors. They were the perfect partner to bring my nail art visions to life,” says Bendet of her inspiration for the line.
imPRESS Press-On Nail Tips & Tricks
- To ensure that your imPRESS nails adhere properly, you must first prep your natural nails with the enclosed Prep Pad. This essential step helps free your nail surface of oil and other debris. It’s also essential that you use the right size nails. If you are in between nail sizes or aren’t sure which size to use, choosing the smaller size is always best for lasting wear and a more natural look. Also wait for 1 hour after application to cut or file nails or to apply hand lotion or cuticle oil.
- Once you have completed applying all of your imPRESS nails, simply apply a layer of clear top coat to underside of nail to conceal stickiness.
- Avoid cutting, but feel free to file the nails to create the length and shape that you prefer…but wait until about 1 hour after initial application in order to give the imPRESS nails time to fully bond with your natural nails.
