Nail art has become a huge beauty trend among celebrities and influencers, but unfortunately, not all of us are able to grow our nails long enough to pull off the look. If you want to experiment with your nails, but you don’t have the time or patience to let your nails grow out, press-on nails are ideal for you. Here are the ways to get the best press-on nails and how to make them last as long as possible.
Choose the Right Size
Before purchasing them, make sure they fit. Most nail brands have numbers on the back of their press-ons to help you figure out the size you need. The edges of press-ons should lie flat against the edges of your natural nails. It’s best to size up and file along the edges of your natural nail to accommodate the shape of your tip.
It’s All About the Prep
How long the press-ons lasts depends on how you prepped your nails before applying them. Pull back your cuticles for press-ons that will last a while. Use alcohol to dehydrate your nails before putting on the press-ons.
The nails packs will come with glue or double-sided tape so, it’s important to choose which one is best for your needs. If you want to change up your nails frequently, the double-sided tape allows you to do this. These will last around seven hours and nails that are glued on can last up to two weeks.
Be Careful With Your Hands
If you want your press-ons to last longer, avoid water and use hand sanitizer when you need to wash your hands. When you’re doing the dishes use gloves.
