imPress Press-On Manicure


When I hear the term "Press- On Manicure"... I tend to get a little nervous.  So, when I opened up my Holiday Vox Box from Influenster and saw a Press On Manicure kit by imPress; I naturally was, well,  nervous.  I didn't know what to expect at all!  Well to say the least, I'm very grateful for this product! I got sooo many compliments and it's a must for girls who have no time to run to the salon or are hard on their nails.  Its a quick and easy way to keep your nails looking great!  Did I mention that this product comes in 36 different colors and is under $8? Great right?  The plain colors are only $5.99 and the patterns retail for $7.99!! That beats going to the salon and it literally takes less than 5 minutes to apply!  Go check out all of the colors yourself at www.imPressManicure.com or visit CVS, Rite Aid, Duane Reade, Kmart, Walgreens or Walmart to try them out!!

My imPress Manicure in Working Girl
How it works:
  1. Make sure your nails are nice and clean.  Also, buffing helps!
  2. Try on the press-ons to match your nail sizes.  I did find that they worked well for my nails but I have longer nail beds.  If you have wider nail beds that are short... I'm afraid you'll either have to do some filing or opt out.
  3. Once you  have matched your nails up the press- on.  Peel the clear coat on the back and press firmly!!  Make sure you apply them on straight.  If you want to make sure they stay on securely add nail glue! 
  4. Tada!  Cute nails!  To get them off, simply push up from the sides.  I found some were difficult to get off.  
***Secret:  If you visit imPress web site, you can download a coupon and try their virtual manicure!

Liquid Lip ShineNude New York by NYC New York Color

As many of you know... I had the honor of receiving a Holiday Vox Box from Influenster.  One of my favorite items featured in the Vox Box was a Liquid Lip Shine by NYC New York Color!  I literally have worn it 10 times since it came into my possession!  It seriously is great!  Its gives your lips a nice translucent shine!

What I like about it:
  • Not thick-  I love this because the last thing I want is to feel is sticky!
  • Shiny & Moisturizing- thanks to the fortified vitamin E
  • Nice smell- Always a plus!
  • Just enough shimmer-  the pure pigments used to make the product give your lips a 3-d gloss effect.
  • Versatile-  This is the the kind of gloss that you can take with you from day to night!  Its available in 10 different shades.
  • Inexpensive-- its only $2.49!  I can't remember the last time I spent under $10 for good lip gloss.
  • Easily attainable!! You can find NYC New York Color products at Walmart, Target, Rite Aid, CVS, Family Dollar, Duane Reade, Kmart, HEB, and more!
