Luxury handmade press-on nails are a fantastic alternative to traditional salon manicures, offering convenience, affordability, and exquisite custom designs. However, like any manicure, there comes a time when you want to switch up your style. Properly removing your luxury press-on nails ensures that your natural nails remain healthy and undamaged. In this blog post, we'll guide you through a step-by-step process for safely removing your beloved press-on nails without causing any harm.
Step 1: Gather the Supplies
Before diving into the removal process, gather all the necessary supplies:
- Warm soapy bowl of water
- Orange stick or cuticle pusher
- Nail buffer
- Cuticle oil or moisturising hand cream
Step 2: Soak your Nails
Start by soaking your nails in warm soapy water. Add a couple of drops of your favourite cuticle oil. Let them soak for 10 - 15 minutes if they have been applied with nail glue, if they have been applied with adhesive tabs soak your nails for 5 minutes.
Step 3 - Removal
Then gently use your orange stick that you received in your application kit to slowly lift your press on nails off. If they aren’t lifting easily then soak them for a little bit longer and try again. Do NOT force them off!
Step 4 - Ready to Reuse
To remove any nail glue that is left on your natural nails, use your mini buffer from your application kit. And apply cuticle oil. Once your press on nails are dry use the mini buffer to buff off any remaining glue and they are good for another wear.
Step 5: Cleanse and Moisturize
Once all the press-on nails are removed, cleanse your nails thoroughly with soap and water to remove any remaining adhesive residue. Gently pat your nails dry. Apply cuticle oil or a moisturising hand cream to nourish and hydrate your natural nails, helping them recover from the removal process.
Removing your luxury handmade press-on nails can be a simple and safe process if done correctly. By following these steps and using the proper techniques, you can preserve the health and strength of your natural nails while enjoying the benefits of versatile and stunning press-on nail designs. Remember, taking good care of your nails is essential for maintaining their beauty and overall well-being.
