Cleaning and caring for press-on nails

Cleaning and caring for press-on nails is important for maintaining their appearance and ensuring they last as long as possible. Here's a step-by-step guide you can share with your new client:

Cleaning Press-On Nails:

  1. Gently Remove Residue: Before applying the press-on nails, clean your natural nails by gently removing any residue or old nail polish using a non-acetone nail polish remover. This ensures a clean surface for better adhesion.

  2. Wash and Dry Hands: Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water to remove any oils or dirt that could interfere with the nail adhesive. Dry your hands completely before applying the press-on nails.

Applying Press-On Nails:

  1. Select the Right Size: Choose press-on nails that fit each of your natural nails well. If needed, file the edges of the press-on nails for a perfect fit.

  2. Apply Nail Glue or Adhesive Tabs: Depending on the type of press-on nails you're using, apply a small amount of nail glue to the back of the press-on nail or use adhesive tabs. Apply the glue or tab evenly and avoid using too much, as excess glue can seep out and cause a messy application.

  3. Press and Hold: Carefully place the press-on nail onto your natural nail and press down firmly for several seconds to ensure it adheres well. Hold each nail in place until the glue sets.

Caring for Press-On Nails:

  1. Avoid Excessive Water Exposure: While press-on nails are generally water-resistant, prolonged exposure to water (like soaking in hot water or swimming) can weaken the adhesive. Use gloves when doing dishes or activities involving water to prolong the wear.

  2. Be Gentle: Avoid using your nails as tools to open cans or scrape surfaces, as this can cause the press-on nails to lift or break.

  3. Remove Carefully: When you're ready to remove the press-on nails, soak them in warm, soapy water for a few minutes to loosen the adhesive. Gently lift the edges using a cuticle pusher or wooden stick, taking care not to damage your natural nails.

  4. Moisturize: After removing the press-on nails, moisturize your natural nails and cuticles to keep them healthy and hydrated.

By following these steps, your press-on nails should look great and last longer. If you have any concerns or questions, don't hesitate to reach out for assistance.
