As an alternative to using glue to apply press-on nails you may want to try adhering them with sticky double-sided nail tabs instead. How do they work? Made from a thick rubbery gel, they’re shaped to fit most fingernails. Once you apply them to your nail, you simply press your SUGAR Designer Press-on nail on top and hold for about five to 10 seconds. This application may be able to last for up to a week, depending on your lifestyle.
