FAQs

How do I know the size I need?

You can find your press on size through our Sizing Guide or purchase a Sizing Kit to take the stress out of measuring on your own. It is highly recommended to purchase a sizing kit to ensure that you're ordering the proper fit.

What is the best nail glue to use?

We recommend KDS nail glue. It is provided in each order and you can also purchase extras here on our site.

How long do the nails stay on?

The longevity of each set is dependent upon how well your natural nails are prepped prior to application, how rough you are with your hands and also your choice of adhesive. With our sticky taps you can wear them for a few days or even a few hours if you're wearing them on a special occasion. With nail glue, nails can last 1-3 weeks. Detailed instructions on how to achieve the perfect application are included in each order.

Don't press on nails usually pop off? How can I make sure this doesn't happen?

Don't worry ma, these aren't the regula degula nails that we used to get at the bodega when we were kids. The key to making press on nails last is all in the preparation. I recommend using a Dehydrator to soak up the natural oils on the nail prior to application. This is the same product I use on my clients in the salon before I apply acrylic. Make sure to lightly buff the nails with the nail file provided to give the nails something to grip onto once you apply your glue.

You'll be shocked with how long your nails last!

Are the nails reusable?

Yes. The use of nail tabs will make the nails reusable.

For those that prefer nail glue, I suggest purchasing an inexpensive electric nail file to gently buff away any built up glue on the back of the nail to get more wears. Additionally, you can use the side of your nail file to buff away any leftover glue.

How do I remove my press on nails?

You can remove your nails by soaking them in warm water with a few drops of your favorite body or facial oil. Remember, they can be used for 3-5 times.

If you soak off your nails in acetone, they are unable to be reused in the future.

What if the nails I purchased don't fit?

Due to the handmade nature of our product we are not held responsible if the wrong size is ordered. We have sizing sample packs available and a size guide to help you can find the perfect fit.
