Apply Press On Nails in 5 Simple Steps

Are you tired of spending hours at the nail salon or struggling with messy DIY nail polish? Press on nails are a game-changer! They are easy, affordable, and come in a wide range of designs. But do you know how to apply them properly? Here's a step-by-step guide to help you achieve flawless, salon-quality nails at home.

Step 1: Prepare Your Nails

  • Remove any old polish
  • Gently buff the surface of your nails
  • Use the alcohol pad provided to wipe each nail to remove excess oils
Step 2: Pick the Right Size
  • Select press on nail sizes that fit your natural nails. Tip: they should not extend past your nail bed, or be too small otherwise your fingernails will feel pinched! This also prevents dirt or water from getting underneath your press ons
  • Lay out the press on nails in order from thumb to pinkie
Step 3: Apply the Adhesive
  • Apply a small amount of adhesive glue to the back of the press on nail. Be careful not to get any on your hands or put too much as it spreads once you push the nail on.
  • If you prefer to use the adhesive tab, make sure you find the right size for each nail (slightly smaller than your nail bed). Apply the adhesive tab close to your cuticle.
    Step 4: Apply the Press On Nails
    • Gently press the press on nail onto your natural nail, starting at your cuticle and working your way to the tip
    • Hold the nail in place for at least 30 seconds to secure and to remove air bubbles
    Step 5: Finishing Touches
    • File the press on nails to your desired shape and length
    • Avoid washing your hands for an hour while your fresh nails bond with the glue

      Press on nails are a game-changer in the world of nail care. They're easy, affordable, and come in endless designs. With these five simple steps, you'll be able to achieve a flawless, salon-quality manicure at home.
