Yes, press-on nails last almost permanently with proper care. Please DO NOT use acetone or polish remover
How do I make them last?
Please follow the instruction and avoid putting lotion, oil or hand sanitizer right after application.
How do I remove?
Simply soak your hand into warm soapy water for couple minutes and gently peel off or just leave them as long as you like until they pop off by its own. NEVER USE NAIL POLISH REMOVER/ ACETONE because all press ons are made out of soak-off gel, these solvent will ruin it and you will be not able to reuse them.
Why this price?
Unlike store-bought, each pieces are unique. Please understand that these press-ons are all hand-pained one by one. Especially for custom sized sets, it will take 12hours- 48hours for me to create one set. It may seems easy but it does take a lot of patience and skills.
