Forget all you thought you knew about drugstore press-on nails. The new breed of press-on nails benefit from a hot new makeover – and they look fabulous. Just follow a few simple steps for fast, fabulous new nails. Here’s how to get the best from your press-on nails.
- Clean Your Nails
You don’t have to go overboard – press-on nails require very little prep, after all – but you do need to get rid of any excess oil and dirt on the surface of the nails so that the press-on nails will stick properly. You don’t need to buff your nails or carry out any other extensive preparation. Wash your hands and dry them – and you’re ready to go.
- Get in Shape
One of the keys to getting your press-on nails just perfect is choosing the right size of nail for your natural nail. Check the sizing with the packet of press-on nails you purchased. There will be different sizes in the pack. If you find you are between sizes then use the smaller, since you want a tight fit.
- Fix It Right
A lot of the press-on nails you find now are ready to use without any strong glue so you can enjoy fixing your nails without ending up covered in sticky gloop. That has to be a bonus. imPRESS Manicure has a glue free adhesive that stays put all day. Align the nail with the cuticle, and press down. Start pressing in the middle and move to the edges. To remove the nail you just gently peel off from the edges.
- Filing Systems
You don’t have to wear your nails long just because they came like that in the pack. You can file or even clip press-on nails once they are fixed. Form the shape and length you like by gently filing the edges or by clipping the nail to form a square tip.
- Get Creative
Press-on nails are just as creative and impressive to look at as a manicure. Check out Nail Designs by imPRESS Manicure. Most press-on nails come in a pack with added decoration so you can add accents to the top of the nails – or you can use these accents on your regular nails. The best thing about press-on nails is they’re really easy to use so you can simply change your look whatever the occasion with just a few seconds effort.
