How to apply press on nails

Are you ready to elevate your nail game with the convenience and versatility of press-on nails? With the right technique and a little know-how, you can achieve stunning, salon-worthy nails in the comfort of your own home. In this guide, we'll walk you through the process of applying press-on nails with glue, starting with clean and sanitized hands for a flawless finish.

Step 1: Begin with Clean Hands Before diving into the world of press-on nails, it's essential to start with a clean canvas. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water to remove any dirt, oil, or residue that could interfere with the adhesive bond. Dry your hands completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 2: Sanitize and Dehydrate Your Nail Plate To ensure maximum adhesion and longevity of your press-on nails, it's crucial to properly sanitize and dehydrate your natural nail plate. This step helps remove any traces of oil or moisture that could prevent the glue from bonding effectively. Use a alcohol wipe.

Step 3: Size the Press-On Nails to Fit Your Nail Plate Now its time to find the perfect fit! Select press-on nails that match the

size of your natural nails. If needed, gently file the sides of the press-on nails to adjust the fit for a seamless look.

Step 4: Apply Glue to Press-On Nails and Nail Plate Apply a small drop of nail glue onto the back of each press-on nail, ensuring full coverage. Be mindful not to apply too much glue to avoid excess spillage.

Next, apply a thin layer of glue onto your natural nail plate, covering the entire surface evenly. This provides a secure base for the press-on nail to adhere to.

Step 5: Press-On and Secure Carefully align the press-on nail with your natural nail, starting from the cuticle and pressing down firmly towards the tip. Hold in place for a few seconds to allow the adhesive to bond securely.

Once all nails are applied, gently press down on each nail to ensure a snug fit and eliminate any air bubbles. This step helps ensure a seamless and long-lasting finish.

Step 6: Let It Dry Allow your newly applied press-on nails to dry completely before engaging in any activities. This typically takes a few minutes, depending on the type of glue used. Avoid getting your hands wet during this time to prevent premature lifting.

And there you have it! With these simple steps, you can achieve salon-quality nails in the comfort of your own home. Say goodbye to long salon appointments and hello to instant nail perfection with press-on nails!

Happy styling!
