Press On nail removal:
Follow the steps below for removal.
- Press On nails are reusable if taken care of. To remove your nails, soak them in the warmest tolerated solution of soapy water with a dash of any oil (coconut / olive / baby) for 20 minutes.
- Use the pointy end of the tooth flosser provided to separate the press on nail from your natural nail gently starting around the cuticle area and around the sides while they are in the hot water.
- Repeat process with warm water again if nails are being stubborn to come off which is more common when removing within days of a glue application which is not recommended. Gently lift from side to side. Do not rip nails off. If needed, soak for longer. It is recommended to use Adhesive Gel Tabs for minimal use or only requiring nails for a couple of hours or days. Please keep in mind that nails are meant to be on for at least a week if glued and therefore it is not recommended to attempt to remove earlier.
- You can use a mix of 50% water and 50% off acetone if you have extremely strong adhesion however it may disturb the glue on nails which have rhinestones attached.
- Once nails are removed use your cuticle stick to remove Gel Glue Tab residue off the press-on nail, use an alcohol such is isopropyl to wipe away sticky residue and store nails for another time.
- Nails which are glued need a little more work to remove dried up remnants. If nail glue is used it is recommended to purchase an inexpensive electric nail file if you intend on reusing. With an electric file you will have the ability to easily buff away any built-up glue on the press on nail to enable more wears. If an electric file is not available, you can gently hand-file the glue off the nail and reuse at another time if nails are still in good condition.
- If you don’t intend on reusing your nails, it is ok to soak in acetone for a fast removal.
- Gently buff away glue which is stuck to your natural nailbed.
- Apply some cuticle oil to your nailbed and cuticles to provided needed moisture to your natural nails.
