Can Press-on Nails be reused?

Yes, Nail22 press-on nails can be reused if you apply with our nail glue gels (available for purchase) or sticky tabs (free and send along with nail set).

To remove the press-ons, soak them in a solution of warm water, soap, and/or oil for 10-15 minutes. Then, gently slide them off with a cuticle stick.

them. That’s it.

Why is Press-ons better?

The list can be long.

Most of all,

Press-on nails are gentler on your nails than acrylics or gel manicures. Press-ons don't damage your nails the same way gel polish or acrylics do when they come off.

At Nail 22, we believe in the harmony of self-expression and healthy nails.

Will Press-on Nails fall off in shower?

After applying press-on nails, it's crucial to keep your fingers stay dry for a minimum of 3 hours. Submerging your press-on nails in water may weaken the adhesive bonds, reducing the longevity of your manicure significantly.


What should be aware after doing Press-ons?

  • Wait for a minimum of 3 hours before washing your hands.
  • Try to limit long periods of time in water.
  • Avoid peeling of the press-ons without softening the glue gel with warm water to prevent harm to your natural nails.

If you are using our glue gel, ensure that the gel is completely dry with a UV lamp.
