Having a bad nail day is second to having a bad hair day. Maybe worse since you can not hide them in fancy hats; at least not the finger nails! We all love some well manicured nails, but sometimes time just flies and we keep postponing that appointment. End result is some ugly chipped off maybe even cracked nails.
Sometimes I wish I could just leave my nails in the salon and they could deliver a well manicured package once done…wishes!! Let’s face it, what do you do when you got no time but have to look good;
1. Reapply another layer above the already chipped polish, as it seems to be the easiest and fastest way. What do you get? Lumps of polish on the nails almost as if it was applied without washing hands after a handful meal of ugali! And a shade of colour that you cannot quite figure out.
2. Apply a fresh polish from skipping the base coat because of time. Then you shake, blow or put the hands in the fridge to hasten the drying. End results, bubbles and smudging due to the constant touching.
3. Use imPRESS. This is a quick fix to your nails, a solution to all the troubles above. It is a set of press on nails with a safe-hold adhesive. No much expertise needed as it is an easy fix it yourself manicure. No smudges no left over ugali fingernails.
How does it work? Simply buy an impress manicure set of nails. One packet contains 24 pieces (two sets of nails and two extra pieces). Make sure your nails are clean and free from oils and dirt. Peel off the adhesive bit on the nails and fix onto your nails. Keep pressing on for about 5 minutes alternating all nails. File to your desired shape. Results: an ultra gel shine manicure for up to three weeks if done right. This was gifted to me but here in Nairobi you can get it at Maridadi Nails.
No hours of sitting and waiting
