Are Press On Nails The New Wave?

Updated: May 16

Press On Nails have become a game changer for the average woman, nurse, business woman, men that possess femininity, and anyone on a tight budget.

Press On Nails vs Acrylic Nails

Are press on nails harmful like acrylic nails?

Unlike acrylic nails, Press On Nails are easy to apply and remove without causing damage to your natural nails. With acrylic nails, you have to remove them by soaking in harmful chemicals like acetone which are only doing more harm to your natural nails. Our Press On Nails can look just as glamorous as acrylic nails with the proper care. The glue used with press on nails and the process of removing the artificial nails can weaken your own nails over time, but you can avoid this by properly removing, cleaning, and reapplying the artificial nail properly. Before applying the artificial nail, you must always first wipe each nail with rubbing alcohol or acetone then apply a small dot of glue in the center of the nail. To remove press on nails, use warm water with a little bit of soap. You will need to soak your nails in the water (while keeping it warm) for 10 or so minutes, or until your nails start to loosen up. From there, you can gently pull off the fake nails, clean them off, and store them for later use. Another way that you can gently remove press on nails is to use our Resurrection Oil as a cuticle oil. This method works best if your nails are already starting to come up a bit around the sides. From these small openings, you can place a bit of cuticle oil inside and allow it to get up under the press on nail to do its magic on the glue. You can also hold a Resurrection oil-soaked cotton ball against the fake nails until you can begin moving them around a little bit. As they start to loosen up, you may have to apply more oil into the widening gap for the process to really work. This may take some time, but it won’t damage the fake nails or your real nails – in fact, it’s actually good for your natural nails! To clean each artificial nail in between uses, apply nail polish remover to the back of the nail then remove the glue with nail clippers.

The Final Verdict

The Final Verdict is that Press On Nails are better than acrylics because they are more cost effective, more time saving, and don't cause any damage to you natural nails. With our quality Press On Nails, they will still look amazing and last a long time if applied and cared for correctly.

LV Press On Nails are designed to last through multiple applications. Each application of the nails will last you anywhere from 14-30 days; depending on how much nail glue you apply at a time.

How To Remove Glue From Press On Nails

Start by applying nail polish remover to the surface and penetrating the glue. Then once it has softened up a bit, brush, scrape, peel, shave, sand or use small nail clippers to get the glue off.

How To Apply Press On Nails

  1. Clean natural nails with nail polish remover

  2. Choose the correct size for each finger (nails will be aligned in order) and apply glue to the nail

  3. Depending on how long you want the nails to stay on, is how much glue should be applied. For example, if you only want the look to last for one night then I would recommend only a small dot of glue in the center on the back of the nail

  4. Starting at the cuticle, press and hold for 5 seconds (be careful as to not create any air bubbles between the artificial nail and your natural nails)

  5. After gluing on nails, which will take about 5 seconds to dry, please keep the nails dry at least on hour (even if the glue is waterproof)
