If your press on nails are popping off or not lasting as long it is normally caused by improper application, the wrong nail sizes or the lack of care once the press on nails are applied.  But don't worry, I will soon have you prepping your nails like a pro to make your press ons last longer.

Here's how to make your press on nails last longer ...

Choose the Correct Nail Sizes as well as Shape and Length for your Lifestyle.

Ok .... So I know you may want those extra long Cardi B nails but if your job/lifestyle requires a lot of manual labour maybe keep those extra long nails for a night out or special occasion and choose a length that works with your lifestyle for day to day wear.

I can't stress enough how important it is to make sure you have the correct nail sizes for each finger.  And don't forget your left and right hand may differ slightly so be sure to measure both hands!  I would highly recommend purchasing a press on nail sizing kit to ensure you have the perfect fit.  The nail should fit from side wall to side wall and not be touching your skin.

Please be aware that your nail sizes may vary with different shapes and lengths so be sure to order a sizing kit to avoid disappointment and to prevent your press ons from popping off.

Nail Prep is Key.

All press on nail sets come with an application kit and instructions.  Make sure to remove any polish and wash your hands ensuring your nails and nails are completely dry before starting the prep work. 

  1. Firstly, using the mini nail file, file or trim your natural nails down short if they aren't already.
  2. Carefully push back your cuticles, if you feel confident then you may want to use cuticle nippers.
  3. Thirdly, with the mini nail buffer, buff over your natural nails.  This makes the fake nails adhere better.
  4. Use the alcohol prep wipes to remove any natural oils or dust from buffing your nails.

Use a High Quality Press on Nail Glue.

All press on nails by Nails by Charlotte Hart come with a glue which will give you two weeks wear.  However, for all my press on nail addicts I recommend purchasing NYK1 Nail Glue. @dippycownails put 5 nail glues through the ultimate test (check out her insta) and this is the press on nail glue that came out on top!

The Perfect Application

  1. Apply the nail glue to either the fake nails or your natural nail.
  2. When applying the press on nails, apply at a downward angle. Starting at your cuticle.
  3. After applying avoid submerging your nails in water for 24 hours.

Press on Nail Aftercare

Remember to apply cuticle oil at least twice a day! Cuticle oil is crucial to healthy nails and helps stimulate nail growth.  Don't use your nails as tools! This will cause damage to your nails and your press ons will pop off.  Wear gloves when washing up and cleaning! Harsh chemicals will break down the glue bonds. 

Treat yourself to a set of Luxury Press on Nails and get that effortless, flawless manicure delivered straight to your door, with your at home manicure.
