How to Apply Press on Nails

Step 1: Prepare Your Natural Nails

Start by cleaning your nails thoroughly. Use a cotton ball or pad soaked in rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover to remove any dirt, oils, or old nail polish. This step is important because it helps the press-on nails stick better to your natural nails.

Step 2: File and Shape Your Nails

Use a nail file to shape your nails to your desired shape. If your natural nails are long, consider trimming them down a bit to ensure that the press-on nails will fit properly. Also, use a nail buffer to gently buff the surface of your nails. This will help the press-on nails adhere better.

Step 3 : Apply Glue or Sticky Tabs to the Press-On Nails (if needed)

Glue: Apply a small amount of nail glue onto the press-on nail. Be careful not to apply too much glue as it may cause the press-on nail to slide around or not adhere properly.
Sticky Tabs: Size and stick the tabs on each nail and remove the top layer afterwards. If you are having difficulty lifting the top layer, we recommend using the cuticle stick or a pair of tweezers.

Step 4: Apply the Press-On Nails

Carefully place the press-on nail on your natural nail, starting at the cuticle and pressing down firmly. Hold it in place for a few seconds to allow the glue to dry.

Step 5: Repeat for all Nails

Repeat steps 3 and 4 for all your nails. Make sure to press down firmly on each press-on nail to ensure that it adheres properly.

Step 6 (OPTIONAL): File and Shape the Press-On Nails

Use a nail file to shape the press-on nails to your desired shape. Be careful not to file too much or you may damage the press-on nail or your natural nail.
