I recently received this product complimentary to test from influenster and was actually really excited. I am not typically much of a "fake" nail kinda girl and have not worn press on nails since I was a kid but had seen the the commercials staring Nicole Scherzinger and was defiantly curious. The first thing that caught my eye were all of the different and totally cute patterns. I mean seriously look at these:

Those are just a few of my favorites but there are 36 different colors and patterns to choose from including trendy brights, classic darks and animal prints. I received mine in the color stiletto which is a shade of brown that I personally would not wear but still had to try these out. I started by sizing each nail and laying them out in order. Then all I had to do was a simple swipe of the cleaning pad that is included in the package and then just peel and stick. It seriously took me under a minute to apply a full set and they felt very secure like I could go out and not worry about loosing a nail.
These did look a little too fake for me and I'm sure would not seem long to most people but just felt a little too long and square.
They advertize that they will last up to a week which is pretty amazing. I only left mine on around the house for the night and them removed them. I placed a polish remover soaked cotton ball on each nail for a few seconds and they peeled off easily without any damage to my nails.
Overall I cant see myself wearing these very often but I think they would be amazing for photo shoots, Halloween or any occasion when I don't have time for a mani. I think if I tried them again in a color or pattern that is a little bit more my style and file them down shorter that I will really like them.
