Application Guide

It is important to follow the application steps to ensure that your nails last you 2 weeks or more. Press on nails can last up to 4 weeks depending on the application and care. It is important to note that not everyone's wear is the same. You might need more prep work depending on how oily your nails get, your daily activities and potentially the length of your nails.

How to apply your press on nails:

Step 1: Wash your hands and make sure that your nails are trimmed and clean.
Step 2: File and shape your nails. 
Step 3: Use the cuticle stick you received in your application kit to push back your cuticles. You can trim your cuticle, at your discretion.
Step 4: Use provided nail buffer to buff the surface of your nails. Be careful not to go overboard, doing so will remove too many layers of your nails, weakening them.
Step 5: Use provided alcohol pad to remove any debris, dirt and oil from your nailbed and to dehydrate your nails. If needed, use a dehydrator or primer for better adhesion before continuing to the next step.
(Step 6: For short term wear, Apply the set using the nail adhesive tabs included in your application kit. For long term wear, follow the alternate step 6 instead.)
Step 6: Apply an appropriate amount of nail glue on to your nail bed, carefully press nail tip onto your natural nail starting from the cuticle and pressing down towards the tip. Avoid applying too much glue, as this will cause it to spill over onto your skin and nail tip. Damaging the nails and cannot be fixed. 
Step 7: Hold the nail in place for about 15-20 seconds to ensure a secure bond and allow the adhesive to set. 
Step 8: Repeat each step until all of your nails are applied.
Step 9: Apply your favorite cuticle oil to nourish your cuticles and surrounding skin for a healthy and hydrated finish. 
If you feel your nails are not firmly attached, this could be because either you didn't apply enough glue, or you applied too much. In the instance that there is not enough glue, add more wherever there are gaps. If there is too much glue, the nail will move or come off with time.

1. Avoid Water for the First Few Hours:

• Give the adhesive time to fully set, so avoid activities like washing your hands for the first few hours after application.

2. Gentle Handling:

• Be mindful of your nails and avoid activities that could strain or damage them.

3. Regular Check and Maintenance:

• Periodically check your press-on nails for any signs of lifting or wear. If needed, reapply adhesive tabs or glue to secure them.
