Here are a few tips to ensure that the application lasts as long as possible :
1) About the nails prep and application :
Make sure that your hands are perfectly dry (no water, cream or other fatty substance).
Wipe each of your natural nail using nail varnish remover or alcohol in order to absorb all the humidity on your natural nails.
Buff the nail gently using the nail file provided. This will create a better grip between the press-on and the glue.
Push back cuticles with the wooden stick provided
Select correct size nail for each finger and set aside in order.
Place the gel pads over 1mm from your cuticles, to make room for the lower side of the fake nail at the bottom of your nail.
Do not touch the glue sides of the gel pads with your fingers as this may wear out the adhesive pad .
In order to perfectly peel off the plastic film on the gel pad, rub the gel pad to heat it before.
Apply the press-on, making sure that the bottom end pushes ever-so-slightly under your cuticle. Use pressure to hold firmly starting in the middle, then each side. .
2) On the maintenance of the application :
Do not make gestures that would weaken the application (too much pressure or too much pulling on the fake nails).
Avoid immersing your hands too long in hot water (e.g. a bath).
You can wash your hands as usual, you just have to be careful not to pull your fake nails too much.
- Can I reuse my press on nails?
Absolutely! Our press on nails can be applied multiple times. After each nail removal, you'll want to gently buff the underside of the nails to smooth out any excess glue. This will help create a better surface for re-application. Then put your fake nails in their box so you don't lose them.
- Can I use nail glue and gel pads together?
Yes, you definitely can! This is a great pro tip for prolonged wear. Applying your tabs onto a clean, well-prepared natural nail and following with glue, will keep the nails on tightly.
- Can I shape and customize my nails?
Most definitely! The nails can easily be customized by filing the sides and the tip to create a perfect fit and style preference. You can also add stickers, rhinestones, or nail decals to create a unique one of a kind set.
- How do I remove my press on nails?
Soak nails in warm soapy water for 10 minutes. Carefully lift the sides of the artificial nail with the stick and remove it fully. If the nail is still on strong, soak for another 2-3 minutes.
- How do I select the right nail size?
Each press-on manicure kit comes complete with 24-30 nails to ensure the perfect fit for each fingernail. To ensure you've selected the right size nail, press the artificial nail down all the way over your natural nail before you apply the glue. If the nail doesn't quite cover your nail bed, select a different size nail.
