Tips on how to apply NailedIt UK nails

 

Do I need to clean my nails before application?

 

It is important to remove any nail polish that may be left on your nails to ensure a smooth clean surface for the nails to be applied to. I would recommend wiping some nail polish remover over your nail even if you do not have any old polish on. This step is vital in order to remove any dirt and oils that may be laying on the surface of your nails that could prevent the nail glue not sticking properly. Remember to wash and dry hands thoroughly.

 

Do I need to trim my nails before application?

 

Yes, you need to cut your own nails back short almost to the skin, not too far though. This means that if the tip of the artificial nail breaks, it won't take half of your natural nail off with it. Use a set of nail clippers or file to do this, remember to also buff the edge of your nail to get a smooth finish.

 

Do I need to remove the shine on my nails first?

 

This needs to be removed so take a soft file and buff your nail in one direction to remove the natural nail shine. Make sure your only file in one direction to prevent weakening the nail.

 

What do I need to do with my cuticles?

 

Firstly soak your nail in warm soapy water to soften the cuticles. Using an orange stick or other cuticle tool, gently push back your cuticles. There are many products to help in the removal of cuticles, but to save on costs this simple method works just as well!

 

Will the false nails need trimming?

 

As with all false nails they will never be the perfect fit until you shape them. I would advise using a standard nail clipper to help trips the bottom corners and then use a soft file to soften the edge. The nail should fit comfortably against your natural nail and not dig into the edges surrounding your natural nail.

 

How do I actually apply the false nails on to my nails?

 

Check again that the nails are the right fit for your nails, and then apply your chosen adhesive method (nail glue or tabs). Press the nail down hard on the nail and hold for around 5-10seconds. If any glue escapes outside the nail quickly wipe with a tissue, or if you’re using nail tabs apply tab to the nail and then apply false nail on top.
