Press-On Nails

Applying press on nails

The secret to using press on nails is by choosing the right size, apply glue on artificial nails, and press on. These will help you to get the best performance and ideal fit from the nail decals. 

You will have to make sure that your natural nails don’t have any oil on them before applying the artificial nails. 

Removing press on nails

If you decide to remove the press on nails, begin by soaking your nails in hot water. For adhesive tabs, soak the nails for about 5 minutes while soaking them for between 10 and 15 minutes if you used liquid glue. 

Once you see that the glue is a bit loose, you can use an orange stick to remove them from the cuticle side gently. But, if you know that it’s difficult to push the press on nails, soak them in warm water again for an extra few minutes. 

Remove glue residues on your natural nails by using a pink filer. It is essential to apply cuticle oil to moisturize your hands and nails after the procedure.  

Use pure Acetone

You cannot remove fake gel nails as the salon has to drill them down. But if you have acrylics, then it’s easy to remove them. You can warm pure Acetone and soak the nails for a few minutes. Here is how you can remove the fake nails: 


  • Pour the pure Acetone into a small bowl.
  •  Place the small container into a larger bowl that is full of hot water. 
  • When the Acetone is warm, soak your nails for about 45 minutes.  

Use baby oil

Using baby oil to remove fake nails is a gentler process than the one discussed above. You will need to make a mixture that will smoothly remove acrylics. Baby oil has some minerals so that you can add it to the Acetone. 

It will gently remove the acrylic from your natural nails, but you will have to soak the nails for about 45 minutes for effective results. You will not even require to pry them off the fake nails from your natural ones. 

However, it’s recommended to use custom press-on nails that are easy to remove and don’t cause any damage.
