I promised a no-holds-barred review, so here we go!
First, I really like the nail polish bottle package. It's cute, closeable, portable and just fun. Inside the box is the "bottle" and the prep pad (behind the pink card thingy).
I noticed right away that the sizes do run smaller than the other nails in the Broadway line that I use (10 Minute French). The size numbers on the under side of the nail are a bit hard to read due to the tabs on the nails. Aside from the difference in sizing, they are very easy to apply. I encourage you to watch the video on applying: imPRESS tutorial.
I found myself applying pressure to them frequently even after the first few hours I had them on. A couple of the nails felt "wiggly" and I didn't want one popping off when I was out. And I waited over 24 hours after applying before I showered. Unfortunately, 2 of the nails didn't survive. I decided to remove them all and the ones that stayed on were really on.
Right now, the imPRESS are only in the short length. I tend to wear the medium, but these were a nice switch. I really liked the design (Space Cadet) and the hint of sparkle.
This is the first set I tried and I will be applying them again to see if I get the same or different results.
For the first attempt, I would say that these would definitely be great for a night out or for vacation. Not sure how they would stand up in a work environment where you use your hands a lot (typing, cleaning, etc.). So I will try another set in a different design...there are, after all 36 different ones to wear!! Go here to try them on: Try imPRESS
If any of you have tried these, let me know your thoughts!!
