Frequently Asked Questions

Why press on nails?

  • Less time-consuming: Get a salon quality manicure in just 5 minutes instead of 2 hours!
  • Healthier for your nails: No more harmful chemicals and over-filing your natural nails!
  • Cost effective: With proper care and application, you can re-wear your sets up to 5 times, each wear lasting anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks!

What are our nails made from?

Our nails are 100% gel, meaning they are among some of the sturdiest and most durable on the market. The nail tips themselves are made from soft gel, and coated with 3-6 thick layers of gel polish.

How many nails are in each set?

Each set contains ten nails, one for each finger.

What shapes and length nails do you offer?

At the moment, we currently offer twelve different nail shapes and lengths. You can view them all here.

What if I can't find a design I like?

Order a custom design! Email us any inspiration pictures or reference pictures and we will create something for you! They can range from a painting from your favorite artist to a picture of a pottery design. There’s no limit to your creativity!

How do I know what nail size I am?

Our press-on nails will be made custom according to your exact nail size.

You can measure your nails two ways:

  1. You can measure your nails at home by following the "How to Measure" Guide.
  2. Order a Sizing Kit. It must be noted that the Sizing Kit is only applicable for that specific shape and length nail. Our Sizing Kit is $10. However, if you purchase a Sizing Kit with any press-on nail set, you will receive $5 off your order.

Can I take my measurements with gel nails on?

No. Your measurements will be inaccurate as gel nails/extensions are thicker than your natural nails.

Can I just take my measurements for one hand?

If you feel that your nail size on both hands look similar, then sure. However, we recommend that you take measurements for both hands to ensure that all ten nails fit perfectly.

I am in between sizes, should I size up or down?

Size up! You can file down the press on nail using the nail file in the prep kit to fit to your nail bed.

How to I apply my press on nails?

  1. Trim your nails: Trim your nails to a suitable length, where your natural nail does not exceed the press on nail.
  2. Buff your nail beds: Using the wooden orange stick, push back your cuticles. Using the nail file, buff the shine off your natural nail. Buffing your nail bed allows for the adhesive to have a better grip on your nails, resulting in longer wear! But be careful not to over-buff your nails!
  3. File the cuticle end (bottom) of the press on nail: Using the nail file, file the bottom of the press on nail to ensure that it fits the shape of your cuticle perfectly! Everyone’s shape is different, and this mostly forgotten step will help to ensure the most natural looking press on set!
  4. Clean your nail bed: Using the alcohol swab, clean your nail beds. This removes any excess dirt and oil, ensuring a longer wear.
  5. Apply your press on nails:
  • Using the adhesive tabs (1 week wear): Choose the appropriate size tab, and stick it to the bottom of the press on nail. Peel off the plastic layer, and stick it onto your natural nails. Repeat for all 10 nails.
  • Using the nail glue (1-3 weeks wear): Poke a hole at the tip of the nozzle of the glue bottle. Apply a suitable amount of glue to your natural nails, and press and hold the press on nail down for at least 30 seconds. Repeat for all 10 nails.

How do I remove my press on nails?

  1. Soak your nails: Prepare a bowl of bearable hot water with olive oil, and soak your nails in them for 5 to 10 minutes. Using the wooden orange stick, gently lift the press on nails off your nail beds. Repeat the above steps until all your press on nails have been removed
  2. Buff your nails: Using a nail buffer, buff off any excess nail glue or adhesive from your nail beds.
  3. Apply cuticle oil: Apply cuticle oil to hydrate your cuticles and nails. This ensures your nails remain strong and healthy for a long lasting wear during your next set!

Can I re-use my nails after the first wear or if they fall off?

Yes, they are completely reusable!

If treated correctly, our nails can be used for up to three more wears.

What do I do if I lose a nail?
