FAQs

What comes with my nail purchase?
Every set comes complete with 30 multi-sized acrylic nails, a prep kit (a nail file, an alcohol pad, nail glue, adhesive tabs) and detailed instructions on how to apply your press-on nails.  

How many nail sizes come in each set?
Each set comes with 30 multi-sized acrylic nails. Our nails come in sizes 0-14, (every set comes with 2 of each size). We are confident you will be able to find your perfect fit, but if you have any more questions regarding nail sizing please send us an email at help@scandalbeauty.com and we'll be happy to help.

What type of nail adhesive should I use?
The method you choose will depend on how long you want to wear your press-on nails. Adhesive tabs are great for photos or a night out, can last up to two days and are easier to remove. Our professional nail glue provides a much stronger hold, and when applied correctly your nails can last up to two weeks. See full application instructions here.

What are the lengths of your nails?
The length of our nails range from 24.8mm (size 14) to 32.3mm (size 0), however they are completely customizable. If you prefer shorter nails we recommend using a professional nail trimmer to cut them to avoid damaging the press-on nail, you can find ours 
here. You can also watch our video to see how we like to customize our nails for the best results. 

Do the nails look natural?
Our nails are designed to look and feel like professional salon acrylic nails. The base of the nails have a gentle flex to fit your natural nail shape, providing a seamless and comfortable fit.  

Can I file or cut the nails?
Yes, our press-on nails can be cut and filed to your preferred shape and/or length but we recommend you wait about an hour or 2 after initial application to give your press-on nails enough time to fully bond with your natural nails. To cut down the length we recommend using professional nail clippers to avoid any damage. Find ours here. For more information on reshaping and customizing your nails watch our video 
here.

Are the press-on nails waterproof?
Yes! While you should try to avoid soaking your nails in water for long periods of time, if you use our professional nail glue included in your set, and follow our prep and application instructions carefully, you should have no problems.  Showering, washing your hair, etc. is perfectly fine, but also be mindful that many bath and shower products may contain oils which can break down and loosen the adhesive. 

What do I do with the leftover nails?
You may be able to use some of them for another set. Try mixing and matching leftover nails with other styles to create your own custom set! You can also trade them with a friend who may wear different sizes than you.

Can I paint over my press-on nails and change the design?
Of course, we love to see your creations! Make sure to tag us on instagram at @scandal.beauty so we don't miss them. You can change up your nails as often as you like- just keep in mind that you can only use a non-acetone polish remover on your press-on nails.

What are the nails made of?
Our nails are made of a premium quality ABS acrylic material. They are extremely strong and durable, designed to look and feel like professional salon acrylic nails.  Our nails will not bend however the base of the nails do have a gentle flex to fit your natural nail shape, providing a more comfortable fit.

Are your nails reusable?
They can be! This all depends on how you wear your nails and how rough you are on your hands- because just like salon acrylics, press-on nails can get damaged with wear over time.  Reusing your nails will be easier if you use the adhesive tabs, however if you follow our removal instructions 
here you may be able to reuse them even if they were originally applied with glue.  Dried and built-up glue can be difficult to remove so we recommend using an inexpensive electric nail file to gently buff away any built up glue on the back of the nails. This will make them much easier to re-apply.

How much glue should I use?
We recommend using one drop for short wear and two to three for a longer wear. See our full application instructions 
here.

A nail popped off, what should I do?
Please carefully follow the application instructions when applying your press-on nails to ensure you’re prepping your natural nails correctly and applying enough glue for your desired wear time.  If you are still having troubles, adding a little more glue will almost always solve the problem! The longer and harder you press down on the nail during application, the better. Try pressing down firmly for 20-30 seconds, making sure you are applying pressure to the entire nail.  You want to avoid air pockets under the press-on nail as this can shorten wear time. You can also bring your nail glue with you in case of emergencies!

Can I use press-on nails on missing, damaged or ingrown nails?
We don't recommend this. You should always ask your doctor for advice before using press on nails if you are missing a nail, if cuticles are inflamed, if nails are ingrown, damaged or in very poor condition or if you have fungal growth.

How do I make my nails last longer?
You can make your nails last longer by carefully following the application instructions. Also keep in mind that wear time varies depending on how rough you are on your hands. To extend the life of your nails, try to be gentle on them. Remember to not use your nails as tools- this means not using them to open packages! (this is more common than you'd think).  

We also recommend applying your press-on nails before bed to allow the glue a longer amount of time to fully adhere to your natural nails. If this isn't possible, avoid washing your hands or coming in contact with water for at least 2 hours to give the nails time to fully bond.  Be careful with moisturizers and cuticle oils as well, as oils will cause the glue to break down which will shorten wear time. If you'd like to use cuticle oil, we recommend doing this a day or 2 before applying your press on nails. 

How do I remove the nails?
Soak your nails in a bowl of warm soapy water for about 10 minutes. The warmer the better- as hot as you can tolerate comfortably will work best. (If you used the adhesive tabs, 5 minutes should be fine.) We recommend using an oil infused body wash, or adding a few drops of oil to your soapy water. The longer you've been wearing the nails the quicker they will come off. After 10 minutes of soaking, or once you can see the adhesive is beginning to loosen, you can start gently lifting the nail from the sides with the cuticle stick provided. The nails should lift off fairly easily, but if any are being stubborn, just add another drop of oil to where the nail is beginning to lift and continue to soak for a couple more minutes. After all your nails have come off and you've washed your hands you can check if there is any glue residue remaining on your natural nails.  If so, you can easily buff it off with a nail buffer.

Will the press-on nails damage my natural nails?
Press-on nails shouldn't damage your natural nails. Just be sure to carefully follow the application and removal instructions (which you can find 
here). With press-on nails most damage occurs when people are too rough during the removal process (please don't rip them off!). If you have any concerns we recommend watching our nail removal video here. If you have any other questions or concerns you can contact us anytime at help@scandalbeauty.com
