What you need:

How to Gel Cure Press On Nails

Start by prepping your nails by giving yourself a basic manicure. This includes clipping your nails, lightly buffing the underside of press on nail and your natural nail and cleaning your cuticles.

Clean your nails with rubbing alcohol and let dry.

Apply the builder gel to your nail and some onto the press-on nail where you’d normally put glue.

Place the press-on nail towards the top of your cuticle and push it flat. Remove any excess gel around your press-on nail.

Cure using the UV light for 30 to 60 seconds and make sure you apply pressure to the nail as you are curing it.

That’s it! Repeat the same process for each nail and BAM you have a fully done set of nails in minutes.

People swear by these and say they last weeks!
