Halloween imPRESS Press-On Manicure By Broadway Nails: Review and Swatches
A wicked manicure helps complete any Halloween Costume and this year imPRESS Press-On Manicure ($8 CAD each) released a collection of Halloween-themed designs to help your finger tips shine on Halloween night. Each imPress kit comes with 24 nails in 11 sizes and these Halloween designs are medium-lengthed so they will fit most nails. To see how they look on the nails, click.......

There are a total of six designs for Halloween and I have here four of them, the names for some of these are kind of weird and don't really match the designs, not quite sure what that's about......
Hollywood Satin: This is a red/black gradient design with iridescent glitters at the tip. Perfect for a vampire costume!
Treasure Island: This design is a potpourri of all things Halloween. There is a cute spider design, a ghost design, a candy corn design, and a couple of black/orange polka-dot french tip design. I think if you aren't dressing up this year but still want to be a little festive, try this one.
Sweat Pea: Yea these names seem kind of mis-matched... This one is a candy corn tipped mani and each nail has either a jack-o-lantern or a ghost. This, like the last one, is perfect for those who want to get in the Halloween spirit but don't necessarily want to go all out and dress up.
Pucker Up: This one is a non-traditional french tip design. There are some cobwebs and silver glittery spiders. I think if you are doing a witch costume, these would work really well.

My favorite of the four is definitely Treasure Island because you get a little bit of everything. Here I am wearing all the different designs from the kit.

Application & Fit:
All imPress Press-On nails come with peel-off, press-on adhesives on the back of the nails so no nail glue is needed! In terms of application, these are easy peasy, no issues whatsoever and I am very glad that the medium length of these designs fit my nail length quite well (the short length designs are always too short).
In terms of width I still find these too flat and wide but thank goodness there are 11 different sizes so in the end I was able to find ones that fit, more or less.
These claim to last up to a week but for me personally I wouldn't really wear them more than a couple of days because although they aren't uncomfortable, I still am very aware of the fact that I am wearing something hard and plastic on my nails. Also the gap between the nail and the press-ons tend to catch onto hair and other materials so these to me are just temporary fun decorations for the nails.

*It's also worth noting that these nails have a little unsightly notch at the top of the nails. But you can easily clip them off with a cuticle clipper and you won't even know they were ever there!

The fit isn't perfect as you can see (the pink especially),
but for temporary wear these work just fine!
Overall:
I love the fun Halloween designs and the easy application. The fit isn't perfect but these are great for a night out or special events.
