How to Prep Your Nails for Press-On Nails 

The most common mistake people make when applying press-on nails? They don’t prep their nails first. When you head to a nail salon to get acrylics, gel nails, or just a regular manicure, there’s a lot of prep that needs to happen before a drop of nail polish or glue touches your nails, and it should be the same for press-on nails. Here is how to up your press-on prep game.

Find Your Fit:

Test the press-on nail tips and make sure they fit your natural nails. While most nail brands either offer custom sizes or include an array of options in each set, you may need to gently file down the sides for a better fit. Buff the Back: Lightly buff the back of each press-on nail with a buffer. This step is not necessary for nails that come with adhesive.

Clean Your Nail Beds: Remove any nail polish on your nails, then file and cut them down as needed. Care for Your Cuticles: Push your cuticles back to ensure maximum surface area. Buff Your Beds:

Gently buff the surface of your nail to remove excess oils or lotions and create a rougher surface for the nail to stick to. Some press-on nail kits may also come with an acetone prep pad that will help remove any remaining residue. Now that you're prepped and ready to go, it’s time to learn about the application process.




How to Apply Press-On Nails Timing matters when it comes to putting on press-on nails. Applying your nails before bed will allow them to be completely set before you resume normal activity and get your nails wet. Depending on the brand you choose, your press-on set may come with glue, prefabricated adhesive tabs, or both.

Our personal preference is to skip the tabs and go for the glue — even if you only plan on wearing your nails for a short period of time — as glue offers more security. With that in mind, here’s how to apply your nails: Apply a light drop of glue to both the center of your nail bed and the press-on nail Line up the press-on nail, starting at the base of your natural nail, and then press down Hold pressure for about 15 to 20 seconds to ensure it’s secure Alternate hands when applying your nails for better control (i.e. don’t apply one hand and then the other) When it comes to glue, people tend to use too much.
