What I have to say:
If I could sum this up, I'd say "sadface." I was excited to try these, because I LOVE nail art, but I don't have a steady enough hand for nail art. The coolest part, was that in my Holiday Vox Box from Influenster, I received my favorite design on these! I looked at the website and my favorite design was definitely D060 Over The Moon- which was the one I got!
Fun fact: most people know the spokesperson for these, Nicole Sherzinger, from The X-Factor, but did you know she is a member of The Pussycat Dolls?! ("Don'tcha baby, dont'cha!)

The first thing I have to say about these: The packaging. It's definitely cute with it's nail polish bottle design, but it is NOT functional. I could NOT figure out how to open this...I had to get my boyfriend to open the package for me...I seriously couldn't figure out.
It would have been beneficial to have instructions on the carton.

Second thing I have to say: ohmygosh these smell like straight up nail glue. Even 10 minutes after I opened the package, I could smell nail polish glue in the air.

Sadly, the third thing: they're too small for my nails! :( My natural nails are too long for these, so I was unable to wear them! I was so excited to rock the red and gold nails on Christmas too! :( So I'm giving them to a friend with shorter nails. I wish they would make these in a longer size, so I could try them out!

D060 Over The Moon-- See how pretty the design is!!!  It looks like it was designed after water marbling!!

A friend of mine also got a pair in the Vox Box, and she said they weren't too short for her nails, but they were all too wide. With revision, I could see these being a good product, but as of right now, I think they have the problem that most press on nails have- they're not a universal fit.

*I received this free for testing from Influenster in my Holiday Vox Box. For more information on Influenster, visit www.influenster.com
