⍤ Ensure to check that each nail fits properly before doing any gluing
⍤ Apply with "nail glue"
- Avoid adding too much glue, which can flood the cuticle area and dry on top of your skin
- Remove any stray glue using an acetone-soaked cotton ball/wipe
- Leave any reshaping or additional filing of the nail until after it has been glued on
- Please note that this can compromise the integrity of the nail, perform at your own risk
















    Step 1: Prep
    - Push back cuticles with the wooden cuticle pusher
    - Lightly buff the entire surface of your natural nail using the buffer block
    - Remove dust from nails
    - Dehydrate nail using an alcohol wipe or cotton ball soaked in isopropyl alcohol
    Step 2: Glue
    - Uncap and gently cut the sealed tip of the nail glue using scissors
    - Apply a small amount of glue on the nail bed and lightly spread it around to cover surface of nail
    - Apply a smaller amount of glue under the press-on in the same area

    ⍤ Using "Jelly Sticker(double-side tabs)": remove tabs from sheet and place on nail bed closest to the cuticle area, before removing the protective plastic
