Wearing Your Nails

Help! How do I know my size?


Visit the "Sizing Guide" page of our website to learn how to measure your nails. Once you learn your measurements, manually input your custom size into the note section when selecting the nails you want to purchase. If you decide to order from us again, you can continue to use the same measurements.




How long do press-ons last?


With proper application, press-on nails can last up to 2 weeks with nail glue. If you wish to wear your nails for a shorter period of time, we reccomend using nail tabs.




How do I apply my press-ons?


The key to long-lasting press on nails is to properly prep your natural nails. Follow the instructions below to ensure you can wear them for as long as possible. 1. Push back your cuticles with the pink crystal cuticle pusher then scrape away the dead skin on the nail plate with the opposite end of the tool. 2. Buff your natural nails with the nail file to remove shine and create an etched surface. There should be no shine left on the nail, as a rough texture helps the press-ons to adhere. 3. Wipe your natural nails with an alcohol wipe or alcohol-soaked cotton pad to dehydrate the nails and remove the debris from filing. 4. Squeeze a thin layer of glue to the full length of your natural nail then apply the press-on nail, one by one. Press down firmly and hold for about 10 seconds. Do not wash your hands for at least 1 hour after application to allow the glue to fully dry and bond properly.




How do I remove my press-ons?


Soapy Water or oil Method (Reusable) 1. Fill a bowl with hot water and a few pumps of soap (or any type of oil), then soak hands for 15-20 minutes to help loosen the glue. 2. Use the crystal cuticle pusher to gently peel them from the nail plate. 3. If they do not come off easily, soak your hands in the soapy water again until the come off with little to no force. 4. Use buffer to remove the remaining glue from the nail plate. Acetone Method (non-reuasable)
1. Clip off the length of the press-on nails. 2. Pour 100% acetone in a bowl and soak hands for approximately 10-15 minutes. Please do not rip off the nails, wait until the acetone breaks down the glue and then encourage the nail to pop off by gently lifting them up. 3. If they do not come off easily, soak hands in acetone again until the come off with little to no force. 4. Use buffer to remove the remaining glue from the nail plate




Can I reuse my press-ons?


Yes, if you remove them properly. Refer to the answer above to learn how to remove press-on nails safely. There may be a buildup of glue inside the nail, but you are able to remove it by scraping it away with a cuticle pusher so that you can apply them again. Please do keep in mind that like salon nails, press-ons may look less fresh after a few weeks from general wear and tear.




Are there any tips to get my nails to last for a long time?


1. Use nail glue rather than nail tabs. 2. Do not use cuticle oil, or any other oil, to your hands during or directly after application. 3. Be gentle with your hands. Try to avoid unecassary tapping, bending, etc. 4. Do not apply acetone to the nails unless you wish to take them off without wearing again.




Can I shower with my press-ons?


Yes you can, just avoid doing so for at least 1 hour after you've applied your nails to allow the glue tof fully dry and adhere to your natural nail.




Can I cut the length of the nails?


Unfortunately not. If you decide to cut your set, they may mishape or break the nails.




Can I paint over my press-ons


Theoretically, you are able to paint over press-on nails but we do not reccommend doing so, as it may make the nails visibly thicker. If will also make them looky bumpy if there were already designs on the nails prior.
