On one of my many Target trips, I randomly decided to pick up the Olive and June Press On Nails to give a try. I LOVE doing my nails and I have my at-home mani down to about 20-30 minutes from prep to finish but I was looking for something fast when I was in a pinch. For New Year’s Eve, I tried the Kiss imPRESS nails and I HATED them! They didn’t even make it six hours before three fell off and I shortly after picked the rest off. So I had very low expectations but wanted to give press on another whirl. I picked up a neutral pack and Valentine’s Day pack to share a full Olive and June Press On Nails Review.
Olive and June Press On Nails Review
The branding and designs are what initially piqued my interest and at $10 a pack they weren’t too expensive. Each pack of Olive and June Press On Nails comes with 42 nails in 21 varying sizes and shapes along with nail glue, a wooden stick, a mini dual-sided nail file/buffer, and an alcohol cleansing pad.
I got the short length in both designs thinking it would be short enough. After application, they were still too long for me so I did end up cutting them shorter.
The application process was pretty easy but I’m not convinced it was faster than just painting my nails. By the time I prepped my nails and glued everything on it was probably about the same amount of time.
The one thing I liked over the imPRESS set were these were glue on rather than just peel and stick on. I found with the glue I could really control how much I wanted and get really close to the cuticle to avoid lifting. It was a little awkward after a few nails were to navigate putting the remainder on but I got used to it.
Once everything was on they felt very secure. I waited about 20 or so minutes after application to really make sure the glue was dry and then I cut all of the nails down to the desired length with regular nail clippers then I filed them to even the edges. Even during this process, I could feel the nails were very secure. Overall, they looked and felt very natural.
Each Olive and June Press On Nails set lasted about 10 days total. I think I could have gone longer if I made minor repairs to the few that fell off but after 10 days I was ready for something new. I’m sure there’s a better more professional way to remove them but I peeled them off. There’s something so satisfying about peeling fake nails off… I know I can’t be the only one! So once one fell I picked the rest of it within about an hour or two. It did leave my nails slightly damaged but nothing too bad. With a little break from anything on my nails and some buffing, I was ready to go with some regular polish.
In conclusion, I really enjoyed these for something different. It would be great if you were in or attending a wedding, a photoshoot, or a special event. I don’t think these are sustainable to wear back to back in everyday life because over time it would probably damage your nails but for special occasions, these are a great affordable alternative. These are the best press-on nails I’ve ever tried and will definitely do them again in the future.
