Step 1. Cleanse
Wash your hands with an oil free hand wash and pat them dry thoroughly.

Step 2. Prep
Push back your cuticles with the orange wood stick. File down the length of your natural nails with the nail file and buff away the shine on the surface of your natural nails with the nail buffer. Wipe the dust and debris off your nails with the alcohol pad.

Step 3. Adhesion
Apply the adhesive tabs to your natural nail OR Apply a small amount of glue onto your natural nail. Match up the correct press on nail to your cuticle and side walls. Press down and hold for 15-30 seconds.

Do not touch water for at least 1 hour! The more time you can go avoiding water, the more time you are giving the adhesive to bond your press on nails to your natural nails. (more time = better bonding)


Step 1. Soak your nails in warm soapy water for 15-20 min.

Step 2. Gently lift the press on nail off with the orange wood stick.

Do NOT pry off the nail, as you may damage your natural nail.

If the nails are still strongly adhered, continue soaking.

You may also apply some cuticle oil or baby oil around your nails to speed up the process.

Step 3. Clean and dry your press on nails. Place them back into the box to be ready to be reused next time!

Note: If you soak your press on nails in acetone, they will dissolve and will not be able to be reused.
