Review-imPRESS Press-On Manicure

Hi guys! Hope you’re having a great day. Don’t forget to follow me on social media:

Inside the beauty realm, there are many categories and subcategories. So today, we’re going to talk about nails. I’ve seen a few people rave about imPRESS nails and always thought it couldn’t be possible for press-on nails to actually last. For me, glue-on nails were more reliable (back when I used artificial nails).

After years of using just nail polish, I hate going to the salon, I wanted to try this popular press-on nails. So, I went to Walgreens a few weeks back and bought two for combining purposes.

They’re easy to apply and the length is fine (I’m used to my longer natural nails). Had them on for a week until I ripped them off. I did my regular tasks as always and I gave my dog a bath without any casualties. Although, open packaged products was a bit dangerous as I felt the nails kinda detaching. They even survived an entire work shift (most nail polish chip-off). But the cool, metallic design on my index finger starting chipping on the third day of wearing them. So I think you have to choose carefully the designs if you want them to last.

I took them off because after a week of washing hands, doing stuff, showering, washing my hair, etc. The artificial nails started to feel a bit detached from my natural nails. I was having trouble doing a ponytail, my hair would get randomly trapped between the artificial nail and my natural nail.

Overall, I liked them and found them not difficult to work with. I will try the again to see if they last more time.

Wishlist (Christmas/Birthday Edition)

Hello guys and welcome back!  The holiday season is right around the corner, which means is time to get our wishlist ready.  Mine covers for Christmas Day, my birthday (is on January), and also Three Kings Day (celebrated in many places, including Puerto Rico).  Now, let me share with you what is on my list.

Let’s start with the makeup part of this list.

Eyeshadow palettes

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam-Retails for $42 and it’s a beautiful neutral palette, perfect for everyday use.  In my opinion, one can never have enough neutral.  (Don’t you think?)
  • Urban Decay Born To Run-Retails for $49 and it seems like a very versatile combination of shades.
  • Colourpop X Bretman Rock Wet palette-Retails for $12.  I have a few blue shades in my collection but I would love to expand on that shade range.
  • Alamar Cosmetics Reina del Mar Vol. I-Retails for $28, love the vibrancy of the colors and the amazing pigmentation.  Also love to support fellow latinas.
  • Natasha Denona Mini Star-Retails for $25, although I’m not really sure about this one.  I would love to try Natasha Denona’s shadows but I can’t wrap my head aroung the amount of money the big palettes cost.  Maybe I could justify the purchase of a mini palette.
  • Elf Cosmetics Opposites Attract-Retails for $14, love the variety of shades.  It’s been a while since I’ve tried Elf eyeshadows.

More makeup products

  • It Cosmetics Superhero mascara-Retails for $24, I’ve been wanting to try this mascara because of all the good reviews.
  • Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow-Retails for $24 each.  I’m especially interested in two shades: Kitten Karma and Molten Midnight.
  • Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Lip Luminizer in Fenty Glow-Retails for $18, swatched it in-store and fell in love with it.

Non-makeup products

  • UV light and gel nail polishes-Hate going to the salon, but love a good shellac manicure. (I’m full of contradictions)
  • Kit for making resin jewelry.
  • Beads and string-Always in need of more, visit my Instagram page to see the beauties available.

Well, that’s all on my list at this moment.  I definitely need to narrow it down but meanwhile, tell me what’s on your list.
