Press-on nails are a brilliant alternative to an expensive set of acrylic or gel nails, as they’re affordable and convenient, but they still require a little maintenance. If cared for properly, they can last for a long time, so it’s valuable to know exactly how you can maintain them.

If you want to find out more, here are some tips for wearing and looking after press on nails.

Always carry nail glue

There’s always a chance that you could knock of one of your nails, and it pays off to be prepared. Carrying a nail glue is like insurance for the off-chance that a press-on nail comes off, and it allows you to stick the nail back on there and then – it’s quick and easy. This way, your manicure will always be perfect, and you don’t need to worry about trying to keep the nail safe until you get home.

Preparation is key

If there’s one thing that’ll make the biggest different for your press-on nails, it’s the prep. As with any nail treatment or application, preparing your natural nails is key, and it allows the smoothest application. Not only this, but it’ll also help to keep the nails on for longer and reduce the chances of them popping off.

Don’t be rough with your nails

You may think that longer nails equal advantages when it comes to opening cans and other simple actions, but this isn’t always the case. If you attempt to open a can with your press-on nails, the likelihood is that they’ll probably just be pulled off, and this can damage your natural nail, too. So, if you’re going to try and keep your nails on, don’t put too much force on them.

Shorter is stronger

A rule of thumb when selecting your new press-ons is that the shorter they are, the less likely they are to be caught or pulled off, and the stronger they’ll be as there’s less room for them to bend. This doesn’t mean you can’t have long nails, it’s just to say that, by choosing a shorter style, you’re less likely to experience problems, and they’ll be easier to maintain.

Take them off properly

Finally, if you want to preserve the press-on nails themselves, as well as your own, natural nails, you need to learn to remove them properly. There are lots of different methods out there, so choose one and make sure you stick to it. One method you could start with is soaking them with warm, soapy water. Whatever you choose, just remember to be gentle and patient.

Final thoughts

There are lots of ways to take care of your press on nails when it comes to keeping them on as well as making them last for even more uses. If you want to make them last, make use of these tips and you’ll be able to save even more money on your manicures.
