Fall is my favorite time of the year. The cooler weather, cozy knits, and pumpkin scented everything make the season’s festivities that much better. I love Fall fashion, because it’s the time of the year to be creative with the endless opportunities of layering. I was excited to pull out all of my new fall finds from my recent trip to NYC.

Impressed

The one thing I can’t leave the house without is manicured nails. The other night, my nail polish had started to chip. The last thing I wanted to do was paint my nails, and I had an appointment the next morning. I remembered I had gotten an imPRESS Press-On Manicure set from the Lucky FABB conference.

When I think about press-on nails, I’m envisioning something plastic, unnaturally long, with a cheesy design. But something told me, it would be worth a try. In less than five minutes I stuck on 10 adhesive nails in a trendy iridescent hue. They didn’t look as bad as I had imagined, but something still wasn’t right. I grabbed a nail file and went to work.

To my surprise, my nails appeared as if I had gotten a fresh manicure.  Throughout the week, I received numerous compliments about my manicure, asking what color I was wearing. (The color is “So, So Stellar“) No one could believe they were actually press-on.

The result. It’s been one week since applying my press-on manicure, and each of the 10 nails are still perfectly intact. I’m really impressed by the entire product. I’m looking forward to checking out other colors. I will update with how long they last.
