Item details

One sheet of gel adhesive nail tabs has 24 individual tabs of varying sizes so that you can find the perfect fit for easy application and removal of your press on nails. These are the gel style tabs, which are a little thicker than the straight glue variety, but offer better adhesion for more secure wearability. Super easy to apply and remove, these are wonderful for wearing your nails for a single occasion, but will last anywhere between 1 - 7 days depending on your level of care.

How to apply your press on nails with adhesive nail tabs:

* Wash and dry your hands paying special attention to your natural nails before applying press on nails. This will help remove any oil or hand lotion from your natural nail plates and prevent transferring any oils from your fingertips to your press on nails while handling them.

* Prepare your press on nails by comparing each nail to the adhesive sheet and selecting the tab that best fits the nail without peaking out beyond the press on nail. Peel the tab off the sheet (bend the sheet rather than the backing of the tab) and fit each nail with its corresponding adhesive nail tab carefully placing the tab nearest the cuticle end of the press on nail and pressing gently but firmly to secure the adhesive tab, then peel off the backing. Lay your press on nails out in order adhesive side up as you fit the tab to each nail, ready to apply.

* Gently push back your cuticles with the orangewood stick provided in your kit to create a beautiful shape and allow for more space on the nail plate. If you have cuticle remover this would be an excellent time to use it and then wash and dry your hands again to remove any last traces of remover.

* Prepare your nails by neatening the free edge of each nail with the file provided in your kit, then very gently buff the surface of your nail plates with the smooth side of the file to remove any shine (this helps to remove any last bit of oil) and ensure maximum adhesion to the tab. Brush any dust off with a nail brush and wipe with the alcohol swab provided in your kit.

* Position each press on nail at an angle of about 45 degrees over your natural nail and find a comfortable position next to but not pressing against the skin. Slowly angle the press on flat against your natural nail checking that the nail is straight against the length along your natural nail, and gently but firmly press down over your whole nail plate rolling side to side to make sure to work over every part to really give the adhesive every chance to cling to your natural nail.

* Bonus points: apply a small dot of cuticle oil on each of your fingers just below the closest joint and carefully blend down across the skin surrounding the nail and avoiding your beautiful new nails entirely. This is a great practice to follow each time you apply cuticle oil while wearing press on nails, don't be afraid to keep applying your cuticle oil daily and keep your skin looking beautifully conditioned, just be mindful of not rubbing it into your nails as this may interfere with the stickiness of adhesive tab.

* Immediately find some nice light, take a nailfie and post it on Instagram hashtagging #darkhorsenailsdid and show me what they look like, I'd love to see! <3<3<3

How to remove press on nails applied with adhesive nail tabs:

* Gently but firmly press squarely down over your natural nail plates and slowly slide the press on nail off. If this is uncomfortable you can fill a small bowl with warm water and let them soak for a few seconds first, the warmth will help the adhesive slide more easily.

* Roll any remaining adhesive off your natural nails and press on nails with your fingertips. If there is any stubborn adhesive left you can use the second alcohol wipe provided in your kit, or some isopropyl alcohol (or rubbing alcohol) on a cotton wipe to clean off neatly.

* Apply a small dot of cuticle oil on each of your fingers just below the closest joint and carefully blend down across the skin surrounding the nail and across your nail plate to condition the nail and create a beautiful natural shine.
