HOW TO APPLY
It’s recommended to apply Allkem nails to clean, bare natural nails. Allkem nails cannot be applied over gels and nail polish as this will reduce the wear time significantly.
- Select the correct sizes by aligning the nail with the sides of your natural nail. If the nail is too small some of your natural nail will show. Choosing a smaller size is perfectly fine as long as it’s comfortable. If the Nail is too big it will go past the sides of your natural nail bed. Reshape sides if needed (rarely necessary).
- Select wear time.
Few days: Apply a thin strip of glue from your cuticle to tip (bring glue + nails with in case of emergency since you want the nails to come off fast and easy).
7-14 days: For long wear, it is important for you to prepare you nails properly. Follow instructions provided with nails .
The nails will not come off alone in water. We recommend soaking them in the hottest water you can comfortably stand for a few minutes prior to removal. This helps soften both the nail and your natural nail making removal easier and safer.
To remove your Allkem nails, soak your nails into warm water for several minutes until soft.
Next, take your cuticle stick and carefully slide it in between your natural nail and the Allkem nail alternating between each side of the press on nail. Slowly rotate the cuticle stick from side to side with gentle pressure. The nail will literally “pop-off” when light pressure is applied if ready.
Never force or pull nails off as this may damage your natural nails, if the nail does not come off with ease, please soak again for a few minutes and repeat above process. Use included buffer to buff off excess glue if needed.
Please note that if you are applying your Allkem nails for the longest wear, do not attempt to remove them until at least 7 days have passed. The long wear glue application will bond strong and removal can be damaging to your natural nail prior to 7 days of wear.
The above is for guidance only. Please use instructions for your specific glue used as removal as these may vary.
WILL THESE DAMAGE? No, unlike Acrylics, Allkem nails are Non-Damaging and reusable, giving you the luxury of choosing your own wear time. As long as the nails are not forced removed you will have zero damage or glue residue left over.
DURABLE? Yes! With proper application , the nails can last 7-14 days and incase one comes off, you can just reapply it as the nails are reusable and you will have plenty of backups. The adhesive and backup nails can always be brought along in case of an emergency.
