Are Press-On Nails Reusable?

Also known as Glue-on Nails, Press-on Nails are ready-made nails in different colors and designs that are easily glued to the natural nails.

This means you won't be required to sit and wait for the whole painting and drying process. With press-ons, in a few minutes, you’re good to go with a professional look as though done by a nail technician, saving time, money, and a trip to the salon just to glam your nails up.

They are one of the safest artificial nails that can be used, as your natural nails are much safer under press-ons than other artificial nail types.

If you are wondering whether you can take out your press-on nails and save them for a later time, definitely! If applied and removed correctly, you can rock that same look again and also without damaging your nails.

Although, it is important to note that when applying them if you do not plan on having them on for a long time, avoid using really strong glues to make the removal process easier. 

Tips on reusing press-ons

1. Buy quality

While we already established that press-ons are reusable, not all of them are long lasting and would maintain that new look, especially when the nail product is not quality. So, look for standard products durable enough to be reused.

2. Be gentle

To correctly remove press-on nails, you should avoid force and also harsh chemicals. A simple warm water, soap, and oil solution would do the trick. Just soak your nails in the mix for about 10 to 20 minutes to allow you to take them off gently. 

Another way to be gentle is by applying cuticle oil, either by penetrating openings or placing a cotton wool soaked in the oil on the nails. This method may be slow, but you can safely remove the nails with the right amount of patience.

3. Take care of your nails

After removing the nails, ensure you file off any excess glue, clean the nails, and store them properly to prepare them for the next use. Remember not to leave your natural nails out of the cleaning and filling too!
