How long do press-on sets last?

Both gel polish and acrylic press-on sets are made to be worn for 3 weeks+ with proper preparation and application. All sets are reusable and can be reapplied.

What type of nail glue/adhesive should I use and how long does it last?

Nail Glue - Can stay on for up to 3 weeks+. Make sure to follow the correct nail preparation process to ensure long lasting wear.

Nail Adhesive tabs - Can stay on for up to 1-3 days. It's perfect way to wear your set temporarily and easy to remove/reusable!

Both adhesive types are included with each set of press-ons!

Are your nails reusable?

YES! My sets are all handmade nails are engineered to be long-lasting and reusable if you take good care of them wearing and during removal process!  If you prefer nail glue, I would suggest purchasing an inexpensive electric nail file so you can gently buff away any built up glue on the back of the nails to clean up before you reuse it.

What comes with my nail purchase?

Each set will come with a prep kit (a mini nail file, a nail buffer, nail glue, a sheet of nail adhesive tab, an alcohol wipe and detailed instructions on how to apply/remove your press on nails).

Do you also take custom orders?

Yes, I accept custom orders.
