Do press on nails damage your nails?

Press on nails do not damage your nails – it’s how you remove the nails!
Nail adhesive tabs are easy to remove and don’t damage your nails.
Nail glue is harder to remove – rushing removing nails applied with nail glue can cause harm.
If you are worried about damaging your nails, use nail adhesive tabs.

Should I use Glue or Adhesive tabs?

The adhesive tabs are geared more towards short-term wear, to re-using the nails multiple times. They do not hold as strongly as glue, but they can be removed from your nails in hot soapy water, and also peeled off from the back of the false nails afterward. So with tabs, you can wear them for a night out, then pop them off when you get home, and put them back in the box for next time.

If you prefer to wear them continuously, I always advise nail glue, as it is much stronger.

Are this nails reusable?

Yes, these nails are reusable if you use nail adhesive tabs – as you can just roll the nail adhesive tab off the false nail and wear them again.
