💅 How To Properly Apply False Nails
Clean Your Hands and Nails
Wash your hands and pay particular attention to drying your nails and cuticles. You want to make sure that everything around the nail bed is completely dry.
Clean off any nail polish and wipe over with polish remover to ensure there are no oils, natural or otherwise, on the surface of your nail. This ensures that the glue lasts and doesn’t bubble up or chip.
Remove the false nails from the pack and arrange which nail will be suitable for which finger. If you arrange the appropriate shapes first, it will make things easier once you begin the application. Press the false nail against your real nail to ensure it fits. “Your natural nail shouldn’t be exposed”.
Push Cuticles Back
Very gently push your cuticles back using an orange stick. If your cuticles are sensitive, be sure to push them back slowly; going too fast can cut them, and you won’t be able to continue applying the false nails.
Clip Your Natural Nails
Clip your natural nail down close to the fingertip but not all the way down. Keeping a short shape won’t interfere with the False nail you’re about to apply. Buff (File) the surface of the natural nail to roughen it—this makes the false nails adhere better.
Prep Natural Nails With a Nail Primer
Professionals recommends using a nail primer before applying anything to your natural nails.
Apply the nails to your dominant hand first. The reason for this is that your dominant hand has the most control and makes it much easier to apply to the second hand.
Put a dot of glue on the fake nail and one on the real nail—try to avoid over-gluing. A small drop is all that you need because it will expand once it hits a flat surface. While nail adhesives exist, The pros do not recommend them because they are less durable.
Place the false nail just above the cuticle (keep it straight as you don’t want any crooked looking nails) and then press down onto the nail bed. Better to press with the orange stick instead of your finger or nails so that they won’t get glued together. Keep pressure applied for 10 seconds to ensure no air bubbles are present before you go on to the next one. This step is essential because if the false nail is not secured to the nail bed, moisture may get underneath and cause lifting or nail fungus.
Clean Up The Glue
Take a Q-tip and wipe around the cuticle to take up any glue that has seeped out from under the false nail.
False nails can’t be reused if you mess up, so you want to be sure to apply them accurately and precisely. If the application isn’t pristine the first time, the glue that you have put on the underside will harden and prevent a smooth adhesion.
Keep the top of the nail glue as clean as you can (remember, if you wipe it with soft tissue, the tissue will stick) and keep the bottle upright so you can reuse it.
