#obsessed: Nailing National Pride
I was pretty skeptical at the idea of waterproof press-on nails. It seemed like a contradiction in terms. But four days into my vacation at a Cuban resort this spring, my Impress Press-On Manicure was still going strong — even after being in and out of its multiple pools and the ocean (hard life). The easy-to-apply, high-impact, low-commitment nails are perfect for a vacation — there’s no glue or placing a separate adhesive on first, just peel, press and go. (You can even do them on the plane.) And if they withstood the ocean for four days, I’m pretty sure this fun Canada Day variety will see you through a long weekend at the cottage! — Kate McLellan
