Problems You Encounter When You First Use Press On Nails
Press on nails can help your nails look instantly gorgeous. While you might have these nails reserved for the times when you can not make it to the salon, the truth is that press on nails are the easiest way to instantly get longer nails or embrace the latest nail art trend without doing any damage to your natural nails. Believe us; there are more pros than cons to press on nails.
However, the one caveat that comes with press on nails is that there is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to using them. In order for press on nails to look chic instead of corny, you need to spend a few minutes making sure you line them up with your natural nail shape, file them down, and solidly adhere them, so you may not encounter any problems.
All that said, with the right usage, press on nails can appear seamless and stay on for up to two weeks. As a result, Glamermaid got some tips to help you resolve the problem you may encounter and which tools and accessories will be helpful when using the press on nails for the first time. Here are five important dos and don'ts to keep in mind!
● Dos: Prep your press on nails
It is necessary to file and shape the press on nails before you use them on your natural nails. If you wait until after you have already applied them, the press on nails can move and won’t adhere as well. Therefore, the Glamermaid nail file and the buffer are must-haves. These nail files and buffers are suitable for all nail art lovers.
● Dos: Apply glue or adhesive tabs
Glamermaid press on nail sets come with adhesive tabs. But if you are new to the process of using press on nails, you must use glue so that you can easily make last-minute adjustments. Make sure you don't use too much glue. You do not want it to squirt out the sides. A few dabs will be sufficient. Moreover, if the glue does squirt out, use a prep pad to gently wipe it away.
● Dos: Use nail prep oil remover
If you are looking to wear your nails for more than one day, make sure that your nails are a bit dehydrated before applying adhesive or glue, as even the slightest bit of oil or leftover lotion can cause adhesive/glue to lose its grip. Therefore, use Glamermaid’s nail prep oil remover to make sure your nail bed is clean and prepped.
● Don'ts: Use acetone
Acetone is super harsh on your nails and dries them out. So get rid of it. Using acetone will only ruin your press on nails and prevent you from reusing them again next time.
● Don’ts: Pull off press on nails
You must be gentle when you take off your press on nails. Moreover, if a press on nail has one side coming loose, you have to keep in mind never to pull off a press on nail. This will surely damage the nails. Instead, use a Glamermaid’s nail glue debonder underneath the press on nails, then wait a couple of seconds to allow the solution to weaken the adhesive/glue, and gently but firmly pull the press on nails away.
Now you know what to do and what not to do when using press on nails for the first time. Hence, get your hands on the necessary Glamermaid tools and accessories in order to avoid any problems.
