• Steps to Apply Your Press-On Nails

1.    Buff Your Nails:

Use the included nail file to gently buff the surface of each nail. This helps create a rougher surface for better adhesion.

2.    Clean the Cuticle Area:

Carefully push back and remove any dead skin around the cuticle area with the cuticle stick provided in your kit. This step ensures the nail bed is neat and maximizes the surface area for the press-on nail.

3.    Cleanse the Nail Surface:

Wipe each nail thoroughly with the alcohol pad from your kit. This step is crucial to remove any remaining dust or oils, ensuring a clean surface for the best adhesive bond.

4.    Select and Apply Adhesive Tabs:

Find the adhesive tabs that match the size of your nails. Stick them firmly onto your nails. Press and squeeze out any air bubbles with the cuticle stick if necessary. Remove the protective film.

5.    Position the Press-On Nails:

Hold the press-on nail at a 45-degree angle to your natural nail, close to the cuticle line but leaving a slight gap. Press the nail down firmly and push the base of the nail sticker downwards to close the gap at the cuticle line.

6.    Secure the Nail:

Continue pressing down on the press-on nail multiple times, ensuring that it’s securely attached and there are no gaps or bubbles.

7.    Final Inspection and Adjustment:

After all nails are applied, go through each nail to make sure they are firmly in place and smoothly fitted. Any edges that lift can be gently pressed down again.

• Steps to Remove Your Press-On Nails

1.    Soak:

Soak your nails in warm, soapy water for about 10-15 minutes. This helps to loosen the adhesive.

2.    Loosen Edges:

Use the cuticle stick included in your kit to gently lift the edges of the press-on nail.

3.    Peel Off:

Carefully peel the nails off from the sides to the center. If they feel firmly stuck, soak them a little longer.

4.    Clean Up:

After removal, use the cuticle stick and alcohol pad to clean up the sticker glue residue on your natural nails and your press-on nails. After that, store the press-on nails in the container for future use. 

• How to Measure Your Nail Size

1.    Measure Width:

Place a measuring tape or a strip of adhesive tape across the widest part of your natural nail.

2.    Mark the Width: Mark the points on each side of your nail at its widest part.

3.    Measure: Remove the tape and measure the distance between the marks in millimeters (mm) using a ruler.

4.    Choose the most appropriate sizing: Record your nails size and compare it to the sizing chart. 

*Choosing the Right Size for Press-On Nails*

When the nails don’t all fit one size category, it’s important to consider both functionality and appearance:

•    Majority Rules: Generally, it’s best to choose the size that fits the majority of your nails. For example, where 6 out of 10 nails fit a size S, go with the size S for all.

•    Choose the Larger: For example, in cases when 5 or more of your nails fit size M and the rest in size S, please choose size M. This is because it is typically easier to gently file down a slightly larger nail than to force a smaller size to fit, which could cause discomfort or not adhere properly.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: How long do press-on nails last?

A: With proper application, press-on nails can last between 1-3 weeks. Make sure to apply them to clean, dry nails and avoid prolonged exposure to water.

Q: Can I reuse press-on nails?

A: Yes, press-on nails are reusable if removed carefully and the adhesive is cleaned off properly. To reuse, gently peel off any residual glue and store the nails in their original packaging or a designated nail box. This keeps them clean and maintains their shape for future use. 

Q: Are press-on nails damaging to natural nails?

A: Press-on nails are a safe alternative to acrylics; they don’t require harsh chemicals or extensive filing. Be sure to remove them gently using the methods outlined to keep your natural nails healthy.

Q: Do you have custom sizes press-ons?

A: For now, we only offer 4 sizes (XS,S,M,L) and no custom sizes.

Q: What should I do if my nails don’t fit perfectly into one size category?

A: If most of your nails fit into one size category (e.g., size S), select that size for the entire set. For nails that are slightly off-size, it’s generally better to choose a slightly larger size and then file it down for a perfect fit. Filing down a larger nail is often easier and provides a more comfortable and secure fit than trying to stretch a smaller size to fit.

Q: How can I make my press-on nails last longer?

A: To ensure maximum longevity of your press-on nails, follow these tips:

•    Avoid Water: Keep your hands dry and avoid immersing your nails in water for at least 2 hours after application.

•    Use Heat: After applying the nails, you can briefly blow-dry them on a low heat setting. The warm air helps to strengthen the bond between the adhesive and your natural nail.

•    Apply Correctly: Always apply the nails at a 45-degree angle starting at the cuticle. Press firmly to eliminate any air bubbles and ensure a secure fit.

Q: How should I store my press-on nails for extended periods?

A: To keep your press-on nails in good condition, store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Use the original packaging or a nail storage box to prevent them from getting bent or scratched. Keeping them organized will also make it easier to select the right size and style for future applications.

Q: Are there any specific handling tips during application to avoid damaging the nails?

A: Yes, handling your press-on nails properly during application is crucial:

•    Clean Preparation: Ensure your nails are completely clean and dry before application.

•    Correct Positioning: Start by positioning the nail slightly away from the cuticle and then press down towards the nail tip to avoid creating any tension that might cause lifting.

•    Gentle Pressure: Use gentle but firm pressure when applying the nails to avoid cracking or bending them.
