Sizing And Applying

To size and apply your nails for press-on nails accurately, follow these detailed steps:

1. Clean Your Nails,  Begin by thoroughly cleaning your natural nails to remove any oils, dirt, or residue. This ensures better adhesion for the press-on nails.

2. Gather Up , a nail file, a cuticle pusher, nail glue or adhesive tabs, and a measuring tool such as a ruler or a nail sizing chart.

3. Measure Your Nails, Use a ruler or a nail sizing chart to measure the width of each of your natural nails. Measure across the widest part of the nail bed from one side to the other. Record these measurements for reference.

4. Select Press-On Nails, Lay out the press-on nails in front of you, arranging them in order according to their sizes. Most press-on nail kits come with a variety of sizes, ranging from large to small. Match the measurements of your natural nails with the press-on nails to find the best fit.

5. Test Fit, Begin with one press-on nail at a time. Place the press-on nail over your natural nail, aligning it with the cuticle and sidewalls. Ensure that the press-on nail covers the entire width of your natural nail without overlapping onto the skin. If the press-on nail is too wide, try a smaller size.

6. Adjust as Needed, If a press-on nail is slightly larger than your natural nail, use a nail file to gently file the sides until it matches the width of your nail bed. Be cautious not to file too much, as you can't add back material once it's removed.

7. Repeat , Repeat the process for each of your natural nails, testing and adjusting the press-on nails as necessary to achieve a perfect fit for each one.

( Keep note of your nail size for whenever it’s needed)


8. Apply Adhesive, Once you have selected the correct size for each nail, apply nail glue or adhesive tabs to the back of the press-on nails according to the manufacturer's instructions.

9. Press-On Nails, Carefully place each press-on nail onto your natural nail, pressing down firmly to ensure a secure bond. Hold each nail in place for a few seconds to allow the adhesive to set properly.

10. Final Touches, After applying all the press-on nails, double-check for any loose edges or gaps. If needed, apply additional nail glue or gently press down on any lifted areas to secure them in place.

By following these steps, you can size your nails for press-on nails accurately, ensuring a comfortable fit and professional-looking results.
