1. Be patient

Wait at least two to three hours after applying press on nails with a nail glue before you get them wet or wash your hair. You need to make sure that stay on perfectly and also that there are not air bubbles between your natural and your false nail. Once that period is over you can practically do anything, like doing dishes, any house work and of course wash your hair too.

2. Keep it short

A quick shower (after the initial waiting period) should not damage your nails, as long as you dry them thoroughly afterward. You can even go swimming with your press on nails on, but with a showers you need to be careful as hot water can loosen them.

As removing your pop on nails require soaking them in a hot soapy water for about 10 to 15 minutes,  make sure your shower doesn’t last much longer than that because that will loosen them up for sure, without any fake promising that it will be otherwise.

3. Don’t scrub your scalp with your nails 

Though you might like the sensation of raking your nails over your scalp, don’t do it. Not only are you more likely to scratch your scalp, but it can also damage your press on nails nails. Instead, use your fingertips to massage and wash your care properly with your shampoo and conditioner or a hair mask.

If it does happen that one of your nails loosen up or pops off, you can still re-apply it back but make sure to do it properly so you don’t get a bacterial infection if the nail is not fully cleaned before it’s re-glued. First of all, dry your fingernail, dry and clean fake nail with an alcohol to remove residual adhesive from your nail bed but also from the press-on nail. If necessary, remove excess glue for a natural nail with the nail file. Now you should be ready to re-apply it back safely following the application instruction.
