TOP TIPS 
 

Use a cuticle oil and apply at least once per day, preferably twice per day. This will help to keep your nails hydrated whilst wearing your press ons and keeps your cuticles in the best condition for a long lasting mani. No more cracked/dry finger tips! 

ALWAYS wear gloves when cleaning. The chemicals found in cleaning products and hand sanitizers will disturb the adhesive and polish which in turn will cause lifting, chipping and dullness to the gel polish. 

If you plan to wear your nails for only a few days we advise nail tabs. Our nails will gradually weaken after every removal so make sure it is worth it. Plus removal isn’t easy if only worn for a few days. When worn for the full two weeks the removal process is usually quick and easy. (Removal steps below)

 

Finally, investing in an e-file is the biggest tip! This will remove all the old dried glue from the back of the nail making them good as new. 

 

 

1)  Your nails

 

How long will my nails last?

 

When applied correctly your nails can last up to two weeks. This varies depending on how you have applied them and how you look after them.

Nail glue: Up to two weeks.

Nail tabs: These are great for a weekend and will last up to two days.

Remember, the key to a long lasting press on manicure is application. Take your time to complete all the steps correctly and enjoy the pamper you deserve. 

Please do not trim or file your hand made nails down. Altering the length will cause the nails to chip and peel. Please choose the desired length. *Our ready to ship designs can be trimmed down and reshaped. 

 

How do I apply my nails?

 

Every order comes instructions on how to apply your new nails.

Please note: we are unable to ship glue internationally due to customs laws. 

 

Are my press on nails reusable?

 

You will be able to reuse your nails over and over if you choose to use the adhesive tabs as these will leave no build up on them.

If you choose to use nail glue, you will get a couple or a few wears out of them depending on how much glue you use when applying. The nail glue does dry and build up but if you remember to only use a small dot of glue this will help keep the build-up to a minimum. We also recommend investing in an E-file which can remove the build up completely, making your press ons good as new! We have these available to purchase on the “extras” page.

Please take extra care of your nails to keep them in good condition. Always remove them as delicately as possible and store back in their box.

 

Please do not trim or file your hand made nails down. This will cause chipping and peeling. 

Please note: we are unable to ship glue internationally due to customs laws. International orders include adhesive tabs.

 

 How do I remove my nails?

 

Easy! Just follow the steps below.

Step 1- Apply cuticle oil around the nails and behind the back of the nail.

Step 2- Fill a bowl with warm water ( as warm as you can go) and let them soak for a while. Using the cuticle stick provided in your adhesive kit, gently lift the edge of the nails til they pop off.

If you have a stubborn nail repeat the process again. Do not pull a stubborn nail off as this will damage your natural nail. 

Step 3 - Once removed, buff your natural nail lightly and apply cuticle oil.
