Below is a video of how to fully prep your nails for the best hold...
File and clean your nails using an alcohol pad or a light wipe of nail polish remover, this is to remove any excess oil on the nails.
Select the right size nails for each finger. Our nails vary by 1mm per size so you will find one that will be the perfect fit for each finger.
If applying gel tabs you will need to ensure the gel tabs are applied flat to the nail, or apply nail glue to your fingernail.
Align your first false nail with the cuticle and firmly push your nail down, you will need to hold for around 10 – 15 seconds to ensure the glue has set and the gel tabs have fully adhered to the false nail.
Soak your nails in warm water for around 2 – 3 minutes. WARNING ! Please do not soak your nails in nail varnish remover, as this will remove any design on the actual nails.
Carefully use your fingertip or a spare nail you are not using to gently lift the sides of the nails, please do not force this, if the nails are still on strong just soak them for another 2 – 3 minutes.
If you have applied using gel tabs these will easily peel off the back of the nail and the nails will be ready for the next use. If you have used glue we advise you to scrape off any excess glue whilst it is soft having been soaked in water.
Store your nails back in your DOOBYS NAILS box ready for next time.
