Every year the beauty community has an innovation that comes by that not only makes peoples lives easier, but it also super trendy. For 2021, it was the press on nail. The invention officially took off during the pandemic, when nail enthusiasts wanted to look great but couldn't leave the house. In fact, one of the top selling press on nail brands was created specifically for that reason (via Glossy). But no brand has taken off quite like imPRESS. 

The press on manicures are almost mind-blowingly easy to use and make for just about anyone to become an at-home manicurist. Oh, and did we mention that each pack is less than $10? if all fo that seems too good to be true, you'll be happy to know that it's not. The brand has created a fool-proof way to get at-home manicures and fans are absolutely obsessed with the brand.

Here's everything you need to know about the nail brand. but be warned, you're going to want to stock up. Thankfully, you won't have to break the bank for this beauty trend. 

These press ons are affordable and easy to apply

Forget everything you know about your traditional manicure, because imPRESS has completely changed the game. Gone are the days of going out to the salon, wasting hours, and spending $60+ on your nail set. imPRESS saves you time and money with their less than $10 nail sets that you can buy right on Amazon. It doesn't get much better than this, my friends. 

In case you're not familiar, each imPRESS nail set comes will 33 different nails so you can pick your perfect fit. According to Whimsy Soul, all you have to do is clean your nails and press each fake nail onto your own. While there are some tips for getting the perfect fit and making each set last the longest, it really is just that easy to apply. Allure even names the brand as one of the top nail brands out there.

The brand offers solid colors for those of you looking for a low maintenance mani, but also offers some gorgeous designs for all you beauty maximalists out there. We're talking fun holiday prints and year-round intricate florals (via Instagram). If you're looking for a reason not to buy, it won't be because they're ugly or hard to apply.

imPress press on nails have incredible reviews

Yes, it's amazing when publications are raving about a brand. It's even better when the customer reviews match the publications. One look at imPRESS' reviews, and you will see that these nails are truly a game changer. The brand has almost 5,000 reviews on Amazon and has a 4.2 rating. That's pretty darn high, my friends. 

Not sold on the rating? Here's an example of one fo the glowing reviews floating around out there that sums up how great they are. "I am a nail biter and love using these nails stop the habit. They are non damaging unlike acrylic and end up being lighter and feel more natural to wear," an Amazon review reads. "The length is very modest for everyday wear, but I always trim them a little bit shorter to fit my nail bed, they sand and shape easily. One application will last for a week or 2 depending on how hard I am on them. For my hand I can get 2 full sets of nails out of one package. Not bad for never stepping foot in a salon."

Let's just say that a whole lot of the reviews have the word "obsessed" in it. At a cool $6 per package, it's clear to see why. Not to mention there are 22 different colors to choose from. Add to that the dozens of prints on the imPRESS website, and you have yourself a foolproof winner. 

Tips for getting a flawless press on manicure

In true beauty community form, nail enthusiasts have found a way to make a good product even more great. There are tons of nail hacks out there that help you get the most out of this $10 mani. Because if there's anything better than an affordable beauty product, it's making sure it lasts.

The best part? These nail hacks are just as easy as it is to apply the nails. According to Whimsy Soul, you'll want to clip and file the nails into the perfect shape before applying them. This makes less pressure on the nails and lets the adhesive rest on the nail before it's moved around too much. The publication also suggests sizing down in nail size if you're in-between two.

An Amazon user also suggests buying adhesive tabs so that you can reapply the nails if they do pop off. The user does say that they don't have to do this until week two of the nails. 

Needless to say, this brand is well worth the hype. If you're not already on the press-on nail bandwagon, now is the time to join.
