What are Press-On Nails?

Press-on nails are quite simple. They are artificial nails that go on top of your natural nail. Attached using some sort of adhesive or glue, they are a quick and cost-effective way to change up the look of your nails without the hassle of painting them or going to a salon. Press-on nails are easy to apply and remove with minimal damage. They come in such a massive variety of colors, shapes, and sizes that you can practically acquire any look you desire. You don’t need a perfect natural nail shape to pull them off. Generally, they last around two weeks, but you can switch them up anytime you’d like.

Press-on Nails vs. Acrylic Nails

Both types of nails are, in a sense, artificial nails. The crucial difference is that an acrylic nail is an artificial extension of your natural nail, while the press-on nail goes on top of your entire nail. Press-ons are usually easier to do yourself, less expensive, and less likely to damage nails. But they tend to be less durable and long-lasting compared to acrylics.

Tips and Tricks

Our DEMIblue Press-On Nails come with instructions on how to apply and a size chart guide, but here are some tips for a more enduring and smooth experience.

  1. Keep nails short

    1. For a longer-lasting press-on nail manicure, clip your natural nails shorter.

  2. Clean your nails

    1. Make sure to clean your nails to have a nice clean base for the press-ons to adhere to. Also, make sure to dry them thoroughly before applying.

  3. Make sure the size is right

    1. Picking the right press-on nail size for each nail is crucial. This ensures a good fit as well as comfort for you. File the artificial nail if necessary. DEMIblue has a handy sizing guide with tips to help you choose the right nail size.

  4. Be careful of contact with water

    1. Because they are only attached using slight adhesive, prolonged contact with water can wear out the stickiness and cause them to fall off.

  5. Removal

    1. Removal is pretty straightforward. Soak in water for 10-15 minutes. Pat your hands and nails dry, and gently pull the press-ons off the nail. A wooden stick might be helpful in getting in under that edge.

  6. Apply at a downward angle

    1. Line the press-on nail to your cuticle line and apply at a downward angle. Apply pressure to the center and sides to firmly adhere the press-on nail to the natural nail.

Press-ons are a reusable, quick, and easy alternative to naturally painting your nails or using acrylics.
