The Secrets To Applying Press-On Nails Like A Pro!

Press-On Nails

Press-on nails can look gorgeous, but getting them to look that way can be frustrating if you don’t know what you’re doing! If you want to put on press-on nails like a pro, try this secret method that helps your nails last longer and look better longer than ever before.

Prep Your Nails

Before applying the nails, prep your nails by trimming them and removing any excess skin. Next, soak your hands in warm water for five minutes. This will help soften up your cuticles and fingers so they peel back with ease. You’re also going to want to use some nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball or cotton square and gently scrub the area where you’ll be applying the press-on nails for about 30 seconds before you apply them.

Pick The Right Size And Style For Your Fingers

First, pick the size and style of nails you want. There are many different shapes and sizes, so it’s really up to your preference. Next, decide whether you want glue on nails or not. If you choose glue on nails, make sure they are applied in an upside down V shape. If you don’t want glue on nails, apply them with the adhesive side up and then press them onto your nail bed.

Pick Products That Work With Your Nail Type

Press-on nails are the best option for people with short or damaged nails, or who just don’t have time for nail polish. The good news is that press ons now come in all kinds of colors and designs to suit every taste. One of our favorite looks right now is rose gold nails. Rose gold is a trendy color this season, and it looks fantastic on press on nails too. To apply these nails you’ll need a pair of latex gloves, a dish towel, some rubbing alcohol (to prep your nails), glue dots (to hold your nails on) and some scissors to cut off any extra lengths. Start by cleaning off any dirt or oils from your fingernails using the rubbing alcohol.

In order for your press on nails to stay in place you’ll need glue dots which will create an airtight seal between the back of your real nail and the front of your fake one. Apply one dot at the base of each fake nail (about 1/2 inch away from where they meet), then put them onto each corresponding finger one at a time while holding down firmly so they stick.

Cut, File And Shape Each Finger Separately

Don’t try to do all ten nails at once. Start with one hand, and cut and file the nails on that one hand before moving on. After you’ve done one hand, move onto the other hand and do the same thing. Once you’re done with both hands, it’s time for your toes. File and shape them first before applying any nail polish or glue

Wait Between Coatings

If you want more than one layer of press-on nails, then you’ll need to wait between coats. To do this, apply the first layer and allow it to dry completely before applying the next coat. For the best results, make sure that the surface is clean and dry before applying your second coat. It’s also important not to apply too much pressure when pressing on your nails or else they will start peeling up at the corners.

Avoid Common Mistakes

Pressing on your nails may seem simple, but there are some common mistakes you should avoid. If you want perfect nails, here’s how:

– Don’t apply the stickers too close to your cuticles because they will interfere with your skin and won’t look as polished.

– Be sure that the edges of the nail sticker are even with one another, or else they will curl up when dry and not lie flat against your nail. – Make sure that the stickers don’t overlap each other or they will peel off when you put them on. – Be careful not to use any moisturizer, oils or lotions before pressing on your nails because this could make it difficult for them to stick properly.
