Result:
The kit I got I believe is the "short" kit, meaning it's designed for shorter nails. As a result, I actually had to trim down my nails quite a bit to wear them. I noticed the nails are really wide! I had a really hard time matching the nails to my own. I ended up with a few that didn't so well. From some of the photos you will also notice that there is quite a bit gap between my nails and the actual press-ons, it's filled by the adhesive, which is those strong squishy type, but the gap is still very noticeable and unattractive.
The application is easy and fast although it was really hard to pull the adhesive covering off of the adhesive. The removal was very easy and simple with some remover.
Also another small thing that bothered me was that there was a visible notch at the top of the nails that detracts from the "realness of the press-ons.

Overall:
I have to say unfortunately I am not a fan of these. I am quite fond of my natural nails so it was counterintuitive to try to apply press-ons that don't fit me at all. The pattern of "Evil Queen" is super cool and on trend but I think because the shapes of the nails are so wide and short, only certain folks will have luck fitting them on.

Have you tried these Impress Press-On Manicures? How did you like them?
