5 Tips to make your press ons last

Are you tired of press-on nails that barely last a few days? You're not alone! Achieving long-lasting, salon-quality nails with press-ons is not only possible but also easier than you might think. In this blog post, we'll share expert tips to make your press-on nails last a stunning 2-3 weeks. Say goodbye to constant touch-ups and hello to nails that truly shine!
  1. Prep Your Natural Nails Carefully:

    • Start with clean, dry, and oil-free nails. Remove any old nail polish or residue. Gently file your nails to remove any rough edges. Use an alcohol-based nail prep solution to ensure the nails are completely oil-free.
  2. Choose the Right Size and Shape:

    • Select press-on nails that closely match the size and shape of your natural nails. A proper fit will help prevent lifting and ensure a more secure bond.
  3. Apply Nail Glue Correctly:

    • Use a high-quality nail glue and apply it sparingly to the press-on nail. Make sure to cover the entire nail bed without excess glue seeping out. Avoid getting glue on your skin, as this can lead to premature lifting.
  4. Press and Hold Firmly:

    • Press the press-on nail onto your natural nail firmly and hold it in place for at least 10-15 seconds to allow the glue to set properly. Apply even pressure to ensure a secure bond.
  5. Seal the Edges and Tips:

    • Apply a clear topcoat over the press-on nails, making sure to seal the edges and tips of the nails. This extra layer of protection can help prevent water and moisture from seeping in, which can cause lifting.

In summary, achieving long-lasting press-on nails is well within your reach. It all starts with proper nail preparation, selecting the right press-ons, applying them correctly, ensuring a secure bond, and sealing the edges and tips with a clear topcoat. With these expert tips, you'll be well on your way to enjoying salon-quality nails for weeks on end.

Don't forget to regularly inspect your nails, avoid excessive water exposure, and practice safe removal when it's time to change them. By following these guidelines, you'll keep your press-on nails looking fresh and fabulous.
