If you’ve been a blog reader for a while, you know I’m an Impress Nail girly! Year after year, it’s one of my favorite beauty products.
However, press-on nails are having a moment right now — it’s one positive thing coming out of the impending-or-current recession.
Regardless, whenever I see a new brand or style of a press-on nail, I feel it is my duty to try it and report back to you!
I’ve already shared my reviews of all things Impress — the press-on manicure in general, their collab with OPI, and the pedicures — I also reviewed the Olive + June press-on nails and the OPI xPRESS/On nails!
I’d seen the Glamnetic press-on nails but wasn’t sold at first. Not for any real reason: I love the Glamnetic lashes (see my review of those here), but I didn’t necessarily see anything special about their press-ons.
Until I saw this design: Material Girl. It was a light beige nail with metallic gold painted detail — a different design on each nail.
I bought myself a set and put them on the week before New Year’s.
In terms of price, these are all around $15-22 for a set, and it comes with glue, a prep pad, a cuticle pusher, and a tiny file. They are a tad more expensive than the other sets I’ve tried. OPI sets are around $13, while Olive and June’s are only $10!
Putting on the nails was nearly identical to any set that involves glue (including the Olive and June sets, and OPI sets), in which I learned that you have to follow the directions strictly! Some tips I’ve learned are: Make sure you wait an hour after getting your hands wet to apply the nails. So don’t shower and then put the nails on.
Also, after applying the nails, ensure you have another hour to keep your hands dry just to let them “set.” Applying them before bed is the best thing to do.
If you’re going to clip them or file them, do so after at least an hour. I know this all probably sounds like a pain, but it’s helped me have press-on nails that last weeks!
These stayed on for two weeks — they could’ve stayed longer, but my nails were growing out! I actually had to soak these nails off because they were still very, very secured to my natural nail.
While wearing these nails, I got so many compliments on my nails, and many people thought they were acrylics or done in a salon.
I truly did love the color and design of this set, and the shape was unique. It’s an almond shape but has more of a point to the nail tip.
Glamnetic has so many different nail shapes, lengths, and designs, which I really appreciate.
I definitely would recommend these if you’re looking for a press-on nail to try. They do sell adhesive tabs separately if glue isn’t your thing, but I haven’t tried those so I can’t say whether they’re good or not!
Have you tried Glamnetic nails?
