How To Maintain Your Nail Health While Enjoying Press On Nails

Press on nails have become a popular and convenient way to achieve stylish and trendy manicures without the commitment and hassle of traditional acrylic or gel nails. In this blog, we'll explore some key tips for maintaining optimal nail health while enjoying the beauty of press on nails.

1. Prepare Your Natural Nails

Before applying press on nails, it's crucial to properly prepare your natural nails to create a healthy foundation. Start by gently removing any existing nail polish and using a nail file to shape your nails. Avoid filing too aggressively, as this can weaken the nails. Trim any excess cuticles and push them back gently. Keeping your nails clean and well-maintained will help the press on nails adhere better and prevent potential damage.

3. Give your nails a break from time to time

It's essential to give your natural nails a break from time to time. Avoid wearing press on nails for extended periods to allow your nails to breathe and recover. Ideally, aim to wear press on nails for no more than two to three weeks at a time. Regular breaks will help maintain the strength and integrity of your natural nails.

4. Moisturise and Hydrate

Nail health goes hand in hand with overall nail care. Keep your natural nails moisturised and hydrated by applying a nourishing cuticle oil regularly. This will help prevent dryness, brittleness, and breakage, ensuring your natural nails remain strong and resilient.
