Healthy Removal Process
Updated: Nov 13, 2021
Whether you applied with glue or tabs, we remove the same way. Start by putting oil around your free edge, underneath the nail, around the cuticle, and the nail fold. Then soak it in warm to hot water for 15 to 20 minutes before checking to see if they have loosened. If they haven't, you can add more oil to the water and around your nails, refresh the hot water. After letting them soak for a couple minutes more, try to rock them off from side to side versus front edge to cuticle.
When removing press-ons, be sure to remember it should not hurt. If it does, keep adding oil and continuing to soak them in hot water. It really shouldn't take more than 15 to 20 minutes, but sometimes the glue can be a bit tougher than other times.
Everything I use for products it top of the line and the glue tabs are just what they are called - high quality tabs made from glue instead of a thinner double sided tape material that you often find in convenience stores.
After removing, store your press ons because they are reusable. If you wish to reuse them, you will need to file off both the glue and sticky tabs so that you can reapply later.
