This post is somewhat impromptu simply because I am aware the Nicole Scherzinger imPress Press-On Manicure by Broadway Nails have been in stores for a while now. But while on the train today, I was complimented on my fabulous mani. When the hip looking girl next to me turned and inquired about their designer, I proudly dished about how they were in fact the Nicole Scherzinger press- ons. I had a brief conversation with her in which she was surprised to learn they were not my real nails. It got me thinking that since this was my second successful time using them, I should share a post reminding my fellow beauties of these great little treasures!
By My Side
The set I have been wearing the past six days is called By My Side (and holding strong towards day seven). Part of her signature series, it is a flirty, brightly colored print for summer. I love these nails because they fit snugly in the cuticles, they don't slide around, and you can even file them to change the shape of fit. So far they have decent durability, but since the polish on them is real, their edges have chipped just ever so slightly.
As for application, it took me less then 10 minutes. I simply sized each nail, then placed out on the table. Each set comes with a prep pad, which I used to cleanse each nail, thoroughly. Next, I removed the plastic backing of each fake nail, placed it to my natural nail and held it firmly in place for 15 seconds. Personally, I feel this is where most people go wrong (if it turns out they don't have as much luck with these nails). The adhesive sets within the first few seconds and continues to set for the next several minutes. Therefore, its best to have pressed them firmly in place when first applied.
I love these nails because they're quick, they're easy, and totally trendy. I know the line now includes press-on pedicures, which I have yet to try. But if they're anything like the manis, they're certainly worth a try!
