imPRESS nails are made with a resin material that creates a supreme balance of durability & flexibility for a seamless fit, while thin tapering at the cuticle lends the most natural look.
Yes! You can wash dishes, shampoo your hair, shower and even swim while wearing imPRESS. The dual-layer adhesive with SuperHold technology conforms to the natural nail so water won’t get in or loosen grip.
imPRESS nails are made with a new, patented SuperHold adhesive, which uses our exclusive dual-layer technology where the top layer binds to the artificial nail and the bottom layer adheres to your natural nail for stay put perfection!
imPRESS nails are not reusable. They are made to be very flexible to provide for a comfortable fit that appears natural. Therefore, when removed they become distorted and cannot be reused.
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.
To keep up with changing fashion and beauty trends, imPRESS nail colors and patterns might change periodically. If you find a pattern or color that you love, you may want to stock up!
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.
Choose the smaller size imPRESS nail if your nail size falls in between sizes. The imPRESS nail will expand when you press firmly onto natural nails during application, conforming to your nail bed size for a sure fit.
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.
Before every application, nails must be free of other polish/gels/acrylics, and prepped with the enclosed Prep Pad. imPRESS should be applied to clean, natural nails. If you lose your Prep Pad you can use a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol to prep the natural nail for the best adhesion.
Don’t force or pull! You gently peel off from the side to remove. If your imPRESS nails seem really 'stuck', apply acetone nail polish remover around edges, wait 1 minute, then peel off. You can use the enclosed wood stick to help lift the imPRESS nail at the sides.
imPRESS Press-On Manicure and Pedicure is completely safe for your own nails! There is no harsh nail glue and the removal process is super easy.
You should ask your doctor for advice before using imPRESS Manicure or Pedicure if you are missing a nail, if cuticles are inflamed, if nails are ingrown, damaged or in very poor condition or if you have fungal growth. While imPRESS Pedicure might seem ideal for missing toenails, the adhesive will not properly adhere, although it might adhere temporarily.
Pre-measure imPRESS against your natural nails in advance. If needed, cut or file your natural nails before applying imPRESS nails. Be sure to use the prep pad after trimming your natural nails and before applying imPRESS!
imPRESS manicure is available in Short length and NEW Medium length. If your nail bed is very short you might find that the original Short length fits better, and if you have a long nail bed you might try NEW Medium length.
Each imPRESS Press-on Manicure kit comes with 30 nails in 12 sizes. Sizes start at ‘0’ as the largest nail and end at ‘11’ which is the smallest nail; that’s 2 nails per size. Additionally we have 2 more nails at 3 existing sizes. These are the accent nails which are typically worn on the ring or index fingers. Each imPRESS Press-on Pedicure kit comes with 24 nails in 12 sizes as well.
You might be able to use some of them with another manicure. Try buying a pattern that complements a color and mix the leftovers together for a unique mani. Or, you can trade them with a friend who may use different sizes than you.
When properly applied, and depending on your lifestyle, imPRESS can last from a few days to a full week. The great thing about imPRESS is that they are meant to be changed up as often as you want to match your mood at any moment. For imPRESS Pedicure, it is recommended that open toe shoes/sandals be worn to get optimal wear time! It is suggested that imPRESS be removed after 7 days as lifting can occur after this time period, allowing water or debris to get under the artificial nail.
It is not recommended to add glue to imPRESS. The patented dual layer SuperHold adhesive is meant to securely hold the nail in place. Adding glue may alter the effectiveness of the hold.
