With over 20 years in the nail tech industry, we know how difficult it can be to schedule an appointment at a nail salon to fit into your busy daily life with things such as school, work and child care. There are also strong chemicals, such as acrylic and acetone, that you are exposed to while you’re at a nail salon.
I personally have been wearing Posh Me press-on nails for the last 3 years and I can’t believe the amount of time I’ve saved by applying Posh Me press-on nails at home in just minutes compared to taking hours to apply my nails at the salon. I also find that Posh Me press-on nails are more durable and much longer lasting compared to acrylic nail and gel nails. Although the Posh Me press-on nails are created from gel, it is a different type of flexible gel compared to salon hard gel. Hard gel has a tendancy to snap or crack which leads to breakage if you don’t go back to the salon quickly to repair the problem nail. You’re not only saving much time you’re receiving the highest quality press-on nails at a fraction of the cost you would be spending at the salon.
Posh Me press-on nails can stay on for 1-3 days with double-sided adhesive or up to 1-2 weeks when applied with nail glue. After the maximum of 2 weeks, your press-on nails should be removed as the nail glue will begin to loosen which can allow for moisture to be trapped in between your press-on nail and nail bed. Once your Posh Me press-on nails are removed you may clean and prepare your nails for reapplication.In case of missing or damaged press-on tips we offer replacements for ordering.

Yes, Posh Me press-on nails can be applied and removed multiple times over with proper care.
Using the double sided nail sticker will cause less damage to the nail bed. For those that prefer nail glue, we suggest purchasing an inexpensive electric nail file to gently buff away any built up glue on the back of the nails and give you many more wears. Electric nails file will be available for purchase in the near future.
Improper preparation and application may cause damage to your nail beds. For example, not having the correct amount of glue evenly spread across your entire nail bed may cause moisture to be trapped in between the press-on nails and nail bed which can cause bacterial growth, mold or other particles to become trapped. When removing and re-applying your press-on nails please be sure that everything is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected with isopropyl alcohol.
Most common causes:
- Improper preparation and application.
Please watch our application instructional videos Click HERE.
- Not enough glue evenly spread across your entire nail bed and pressure held for 30-45seconds
- Extra sweaty hands during application
- Oily nail beds not cleaned thoroughly
- The press-on tips are too small for your nails. Go one size up
Cutting or filing the press-on nails may cause the gel polish to crack or peel. If you do need to trim or file your press-on nail use alcohol to clean the surface of the press-on tips and then apply a layer of gel top coat to seal the press-on nail tip. If you do not have gel top coat you can apply a 2 clear polish top coat ensuring to seal the ends and corners. Please note that even with an extra layer of top coat, cutting or filing the press-on nails may result in damaging the press-on nail tip.
