You should know that you are not going to remove your press on nails in the same way if you stick them with glue or gel pads, so be careful, because not all methods are suitable for glue. In this blog, the nail supply expert Maryton will tell you how to remove press on nails with glue.
Before explaining to you, we want to point out that this technique takes time and that the press on nails glue is quite complicated to remove so don’t be in a hurry.
- Apply oil generously to your cuticles
The fat in the oil will gently loosen the glue and gel pad.
- Dip your fingers in warm water with hand soap
The warm water will soften the gel pad and the soap will help gently remove the capsule. Stay there for 20 minutes if you used glue, and 10 minutes if you used gel pads.
- Remove your capsules
From time to time, look with the pointed side of the cuticle pusher to see if the capsule is lifting, this is a good sign. Note that if you have worn your manicure for more than 2 weeks, it will be easier to remove, because the glue has less and less adhesion over time. If they don’t come off, you shouldn’t force it. Add oil and heat the water again.
Once you have removed your capsules, run a file inside the capsule to remove the glue. In addition, I also advise you to invest in some professional manicure sets to care for your nails.
