Starry Night Sky Nails Using Impress Press-On Manicure and China Glaze Tinsel Town.

I don’t do many nail posts on Glitter Geek, and I have my reasons:

  1. The eczema on my hands are awful. On really bad days they are all up in my finger tips.
  2. Nail polish removers are one of the bad things I use that cause eczema flare-ups.  Beauty is pain, right?

Wrong.  No longer will I have to remove nail polish with toxic juice; not if I can use Impress Press-On Manicure in Color Me! * ($6.99).  They come in 18 solid colours ($6.99) and 18 patterns ($8.99).

Color Me! is special because you can design it however way you want. :)  I couldn’t think of a better way to try this out than a glittery manicure. Having this hard-to-remove formula on my fingers and knowing that I can peel them off when I am done with them is just… alskdfj;laksjd… I have no words.  It’s like a dream come true.


Since I just bought China Glaze Nail Polish in Tinsel Town ($6.50), I wanted to take her out for a spin.  It wasn’t totally opaque in one coat, so I know I could layer it over another colour.  I used two coats of Le Metier de Beauté Nail Polish in Midnight Rendezvous as a base, and topped it off with Seche Vite Top Coat.

As for the press-on nails, I really like the product.  They don’t look chunky and unnatural, but for someone who keeps her natural nails short and has small nail beds, I’m still getting used to having them.  There are 24 nail covers in 12 sizes, which means you can touch up if a nail cover falls off.  My impressions are that they are very firmly stuck to my nails (I’m on Day 2) and don’t think they are going to fall off anytime soon.

I’m so happy to be able to wear glitter nail polish again without thinking about the headache of removing them later. :)  Aren’t my nails mesmerizing?  I can’t stop staring at them.  Have you tried press-on nails before?  What was your experience with them?

Impress Press-On Manicure By Broadway Nails are available now at Walmart, and in January 2012 at  Rexall Pharma Plus, London Drugs, Zellers and Jean Coutu.  More information on their website.

    Those press-on nails are absolutely genius! I hate removing glitter polish for the same reasons you do: the excess rubbing with polish remover does not do my eczema any favors.

      It’s true! Do you wear nail polish often? I find I wear it less and less, especially on colder months. These will keep my nails looking pretty. :)

    I like how that looks. Before I started reading I was going to compliment you on your nails. :)

    I put on two coats of Tinsel Town and felt like I was disco dancin’. I’ll have to try it as a top coat with another polish.

      I know! Tinsel Town in two coats is just freakin’ brilliant. I love it.

    So cool!! I will need to look for these too! My nails keep chipping and breaking lately. I’m anemic and I don’t know, maybe that has something to do with it? This is just what I need!

    I love the idea of these but how do you glue them onto your nails and then how do you remove them when you are over them?

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Hi! They have adhesives on the back. Basically you peel back the plastic to expose the adhesive then press down firmly on the nails.

      To remove just peel them off! I find removing from the cuticle line is easiest.
