Tips on a 5 Minute Manicure with Press On Nails

Who doesn’t love a 5 minute manicure that looks like you just spent 2 hours at the nail salon! Press on nails are becoming more and more popular with stunning nail designs that look just like salon style acrylic nails. 

Press on nails are so fun because you can change your nails anytime you want without breaking the bank. Match your nails with your outfit or change them up whenever you feel like it. In a rush to go to an event? Don’t have time to sit at the nail salon for 2 plus hours? Press on nails are your new best friend! 

Here are some tips to get the best results when using press on nails:

  1. Make sure that your natural nails are clean and dry before applying the press-on nails. Any dirt or oil on your nails can prevent the press-on nails from sticking properly.

  2. Use a nail file or a cuticle pusher to gently push back the cuticles before applying the press-on nails. This will create a smooth surface for the press-on nails to adhere to.

  3. Use nail glue or nail tabs to secure the press-on nails in place. Nail glue can give you a stronger hold, but it can be more difficult to remove. Nail tabs are easier to remove but may not hold as well.

  4. If you have trouble getting the press-on nails to stay in place, you can use a nail file to rough up the surface of your natural nails. This will create a better grip for the press-on nails.

  5. If you have long or curved natural nails, you may need to trim the press-on nails down to size. You can use a nail file or a pair of nail scissors to do this.

  6. To remove the press-on nails, gently peel them off starting from the edges. If the nails are difficult to remove, you can use a cotton ball soaked in nail polish remover to loosen the glue. Be careful not to pull too hard, as this could damage your natural nails.

  7. If you notice any lifting or separation between the press-on nail and your natural nail, you can use a nail file to smooth out the edges and secure the press-on nail in place.

By following these tips, you should be able to apply press-on nails easily and get a beautiful, manicured look.
