How to Care for Your Press On Nails

If you want to reuse your press-on nails, you need to take good care of them while wearing them! Just like a regular manicure, there are certain things you shouldn't do if you want to maintain your press on nails.

  • Moisturize your cuticle with cuticle oil and moisturize your hands with lotion to provide a solid base for your press on nails.
  • Apply a coat of press on nail polish to your nails to better protect them from daily wear and tear.
  • Wear gloves when you wash dishes, use cleaning products, garden, or handle hot water, which may soften glue or damage your nails.
  • Don't press your fake nails too hard, or they may fall off or even break. It may be tempting because your nails are long enough to open things or reach things you normally can't touch, but it can damage your nails and make it impossible for you to reuse them.
  • If you notice one side of the press on nail starting to show, apply a little more glue and press for 30 seconds to a minute.

Remove your false nails correctly

The key to reusing the press on nails is that you must safely remove them from your natural nails without damaging them. Please avoid using any chemicals, such as acetone, as you can only remove pop on nails by peeling them off or gently lifting them with an armor stick.

 Clean and store them gently 

Once you've removed the fake nails, be sure to wipe off any excess glue behind the nails, wash them with alcohol, and finally put them back in their original LÓA nail bag. Our research shows that you can reuse them up to five times if you take them out and store them as recommended, but if you're very careful about ironing, you might wear them more than that.
