Instant Manicure FAQ

What Does My Instant Manicure Kit Include? The kit includes 24 expertly designed nails in 12 universal sizes, an application tool, nail file, nail glue, and double-sided gel tabs.

How To Apply?  

  1. Gently push back your cuticles and file your natural nail as needed. For maximum adhesion, lightly buff the nail surface - this gives the nail glue even more grip.
  2. Cleanse your nails with an alcohol wipe or acetone to remove any dust, oils, or residue. Starting with clean, dry nails is key to ensuring proper adhesion, so don’t skip this step! 
  3. Select the right nail size for each nail bed - the nail should fit comfortably when pressed down, completely covering the nail bed without digging into the sides of your nails. If necessary, use the file to tailor the fit as needed. Each nail has a small number on the underside of the tip to indicate size. 
  4. Carefully apply a layer of glue to the entire surface of the natural nail, avoiding the edges, as well as to the inside of the press on nail. For shorter wear (1-2 days), you can apply a double-sided gel tab to the surface of your nail instead.
  5. Place the press on nail and hold it in position for 15-20 seconds, applying firm, even pressure. This will help eliminate any potential air bubbles and secure the nail’s hold.

Pro Application Tips: 

    • For the most seamless, natural look, gently slide the press on nail just beneath the cuticle during application.
    • It’s best to trim down or file your natural nails prior to applying your Signet Instant Manicure, to ensure that your free edge doesn’t peek out from the sides of the press on nail.
    • More glue = longer wear. Apply a thin layer if you only want to keep the nails on for a few days, or be more generous to get full 7+ day wear.
    • Let the glue dry on the surface of your natural nail for 5-10 seconds before applying the press on nail - this allows the glue to get slightly tacky, helping the nails stick on contact.
    • If you get some glue on your skin/cuticle no need to worry! Quickly swipe away what you can, the rest will come off in the shower.

What's In The Glue? Our non-toxic nail glue contains Ethyl Cyanoacrylate, Polymethyl Methacrylate, and BHT. Quick warning: Nail glue bonds instantly and you should avoid contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth. Also remember to keep it out of children’s reach. 

Will The Nails Fit? Our kit includes 12 universal nail sizes to ensure your perfect fit. You can also use the file included to tailor your Instant Manicure as needed.

How To Remove? It’s important to never force off your Instant Manicure. Our non-toxic nail glue is designed to gradually break down as you wear it, and the nails will start to lift when they are ready to be removed.

  1. Soak your nails in warm, soapy water for about 5 to 10 minutes. This will help soften the adhesive.
  2. Use a cuticle stick or an extra nail from the kit to carefully lift the edges of your press on nails. Gently pull the press on nail away from the natural nail to remove it, repeating the soaking process as needed.
  3. Remove any residue that may have been left on the nail surface by dissolving with nail polish remover or buffing the area gently.  

Natural Nail Damage? Unlike drugstore glue, our Instant Manicure nail glue is specially formulated to dissolve as you wear it. The amount of nail glue you use during application will determine your wear time, and your Instant Manicure will start to lift when it is ready to be removed. As long as the nails are not forced off prematurely, your natural nails are completely safe from damage. For a shorter wear time (1-3 days), try our double-sided gel tabs.

Nail Popped Off? No worries, that just means you need a little more glue. Make sure your nail surface is completely clean and apply more adhesive to your natural nail, as well as the inside of the press on nail. Then just press on and voila.
