How to Care For and Reuse Press-On Nails

3 min read

Press-on nails have become a popular alternative to salon nail extensions. They are easy to use, affordable, and come in a variety of styles and designs. However, many people are unaware that press-on nails can be reused, making them an even more cost-effective and environmentally friendly option. Here are some tips on how to care for and reuse your press-on nails:

Remove them carefully

To avoid damaging your press-on nails, remove them carefully by soaking them in warm water for a few minutes. This will soften the glue and make it easier to remove the nails. Use a cuticle pusher or orange stick to gently lift the nails from the corners.

Clean and sanitize them

After removing the nails, clean and sanitize them by soaking them in a bowl of warm water with a few drops of dish soap. Use a soft brush to remove any dirt or glue residue from the nails. Rinse them with clean water and dry them thoroughly.

Store them properly

To keep your press-on nails in good condition for reuse, store them in a dry, cool place. You can also keep them in a nail polish organizer or plastic container to prevent them from getting damaged or lost.

Reapply them

To reuse your press-on nails, you will need to apply fresh glue. Apply a small amount of glue to the back of the nail and press it firmly onto your natural nail, holding it in place for a few seconds. Make sure the glue is evenly distributed and that there are no air bubbles.

Trim and shape them

After reapplying your press-on nails, trim and shape them to your desired length and shape. Use a nail file to smooth out any rough edges or uneven surfaces.

Remove them before bed

To prevent damage to your natural nails, remove your press-on nails before going to bed. This will give your nails a chance to breathe and prevent any fungal or bacterial infections from developing.
