PRESS REFRESH

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW TO SIZE YOUR NAILS

PRESS REFRESH

Take a piece of tape and wrap it horizontally across the widest part of your nail. Make sure the tape lays flat and hugs the nail really well, from side to side. Use your finger to push the tape into your sidewalls to help hold it in place.

Use a Pen to mark the sides of your nail. This will measure your custom nail size.

Remove tape and stick it onto your strip of paper.

REPEAT STEPS ABOVE ON ALL 10 fingers.

Label each measurement to keep track as you go along using a ruler or measuring tape, measure using mm for sizing each nail size and write it down.

Enter the numbers separated with a comma, into the appropriate section on your product page/cart.

What you’ll need:

  • Pen

  • Tape

  • Strip of Paper

  • Ruler or Measuring Tape

HOW TO 'PREP' YOUR NAILS

PRESS REFRESH

WHAT’S INCLUDED IN YOUR KIT!

 

Orange wood stick

Nail file

Buffer

Alcohol wipe

 

Cut & file your nails short

 

Push back your cuticles with the flat edge of the orangewood stick

 

PRO TIP! make sure those cuticles are clean! remove any cuticle attached to the nail bed & remember those side walls!

 

Gently buff the shine off your nails, including the sides, corners & edges. This will promote longer wear of your press-ons!

 

PRO TIP! do a light test! 

Hold your nails up to a light and rotate in different directions, if they appear shiny..continue buffing!

 

Use the alcohol wipe to deep clean the surface of your nail beds. this will remove any oil & debris, ensuring proper adhesion of your press refresh nails!

 

NOW YOU’RE READY FOR APPLICATION! 

HOW TO APPLY YOUR PRESS REFRESH NAILS w/ GEL TABS

 

Complete your prep steps

 

Find the best fitted glue tab for each nail. Remove one and place it on a nail, getting as close to the cuticle as you can. This will decrease the chances of lifting. hold and press it into place for 10 seconds, ensuring it's flat and bubble-free. do not remove the plastic film yet. Repeat on all 10 nails.

 

Keep your press refresh set organized by size. Begin working from your pinky nail 1st. This will make removing the glue-tab-film easier. Remove the plastic film from your pinky nail. Starting at the cuticle area, angle the press refresh nail down slowly and hold the nail in place firmly, for 10 seconds. repeat this with the rest of your nails, one-by-one.

Can I order a set of PRESS REFRESH nails with my own customized design?


Sure can! This is our specialty! Feel free to email us ( press-refresh@tipsnailbar.ca ) with your design ideas and we'll get back to you with timeline and pricing. You can also chat with us through the chat box in the bottom right hand corner.




Can I reshape or shorten my press-ons?


We don't recommend it but we know that sometimes you HAVE TO! Just keep in mind that you may compromise the design a bit, so be careful! Use a good nail file that isn't dull, (we have these available for purchase on the Press Refresh tools page). Do NOT clip them with nail clippers unless it is for the removal process.
