How Press-ons Stay on

How Press-ons Stay on


Straight from the source– The nail experts for imPRESS shares insider tips to help you get the best results with your press-on manicure and pedicure.


THE SECRET TO STAYING PUT:

People who haven’t tried imPRESS wonder how the nails stay on. imPRESS nails for fingers and for toes are made with a patented SuperHold adhesive, which uses our exclusive dual-layer technology where the top layer binds to the artificial nail and the bottom layer adheres to your natural nail! New Ultra-Fit designs maintain the SuperHold, plus the nails are slimmer yet stronger for comfort and durability.

TRICK FOR USERS WITH VERY SHORT NAILS OR A SHORT NAIL BED:

In some cases, a tiny amount of adhesive can remain exposed after applying your imPRESS nails. The quick fix: brush clear top coat to underside of the nail(s) to help “seal” any stickiness.

APPLICATION ESSENTIALS:

Always prep your natural nails with the enclosed Prep Pad to remove any oil and other debris as well as pushing back your cuticles with the wood stick. Be sure to use the right size nails. If you are in between nail sizes or aren't sure which size to use, choose the smaller size for lasting wear and a more natural look. Press down on the nail for at least 15 seconds before moving onto the next nail and wait an hour after application to file nails (avoid cutting imPRESS) or to apply hand lotion or cuticle oil.


REMOVE OLD POLISH:

imPRESS should only be applied to clean, natural nails. Before application, nails must be free of other polish/gels/acrylics, and prepped with the enclosed Prep Pad. If you don’t have a Prep Pad you can use a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol to prep the natural nail for the best adhesion.

IF HAIR GETS CAUGHT (OR SNAGS) UNDER THE NAILS: 

Make sure you push back your cuticles before putting on imPRESS Press-on nails. Then when you do, make sure that you gently slide the nail under your pushed back cuticle. This way you won't have any gaps for your hair to snag in. In addition, if there is exposed adhesive under nails apply clear polish to seal it.

When applied properly, imPRESS nails stay put for days. When you’re ready to change them up, gently peel off from each side. If needed, nudge nails from sides using a manicure stick.
