A modern twist on the fresh manicure!
Essie – Power Clutch
I finally got my nail stuff in the mail from the ImPress Brand Challenge that I won from my Mom VoxBox.
So I got Press on Manicure in 230 Text Appeal and Kiss Nail Dress Kit in Bustier. I am thrilled with the colors I received. Black is one of those colors that is so hard to do yourself at home. This kit will make it so easy to get the perfect manicure, and the sparkle nail dress will make it girly and glamorous.
So excited to try these out.
Here is the kit I got in my June Mom Vox Box.
I got a bright candy purple.
The kit included many sizes, so I laid out the sizes that fit for me to make it easier to apply to my nails.
Before you can apply them, you have to clean your nails with a provided wipe. You don’t want germs hidden under the nails.
You peel off the plastic guard, and line them up on your nail, close to the cuticle, and press firmly to make sure it really sticks.
Bright and pretty.
Here’s the full set against my zebra shirt. I love the contrast.
This set is super easy to apply, and the sticky glue was stronger than I was expecting. These are the perfect alternative to a manicure if you are on a budget, or even a time restraint. It took all of 5 minutes to apply, and it looked perfect. I got many compliments at work, everyone loved the color, and they all thought I had gone to a salon.
* I received this product complimentary for testing.
My new favorite nail color. It’s more coral in person, but it’s crazy bright and only takes one coat.
Seriously if I could have 1 bottle of every single Essie color, I would be one happy woman.
Next I want a bright, hot, Barbie pink.

New Nail Polish
New Nail Polish
These are the Incoco Nail Polish Applique’s I got in the September BirchBox.
To be honest I was really skeptical at first. I mean could nail stickers actually stick and last longer than say one sink of dishes?? And the answer is: Yes! When you open them, they smell like nail polish, they feel like nail polish. And you just stick them on carefully trying to be as exact as you can. One they are down, they are down, no re-sticking. You need steady hands. And all the extra you just bend over and file off. I have tiny nail beds, so there was plenty just hanging out.
You need to get them down faily quickly, since it is real nail polish they will dry out. I suggest getting them all down on your nails and rubbing them to really get them to stick all over and bend the extra over for all 10 nails, then go back and file off the extra. That way the part that starts to dry up you will just file off.
The crazy things lasted through many sinks full of dishes, a few baths, and anything that life threw my way.
I would highly suggest them, and I will be buying some. I love all the crazy designs they come in. I want these next!
