What can I substitute for false nail glue?

False nail glue is one of the easiest ways to apply your false nails or Press On Nails. But nail glue has its drawbacks. So what should we do? In this article, your nail supply expert Maryton will introduce you 3 alternatives to replace false nail glue.

1 – Gel Pads or Stickers for False Nails

Gel Pads are double-sided adhesives specially designed to stick false nails or Press On Nails on your nails. They come in different sizes that allow them to fit your different nail sizes comfortably.

Advantages of Gel Pads:

  • Very gentle on your nails: Gel Pads don’t damage your nails and don’t require acetone or nail polish remover to remove.
  • Easy to remove: Soak your nails in warm soapy water for 5 minutes.
  • Very affordable.
  • Easy to apply.

Cons of Gel Pads:

  • Less durable than false nail glue: a few days
  • Useful only with Press On Nails or complete capsules.

2 – Acrylic resin

Using acrylic is probably the most durable and long lasting method you can use for your nails. It can even save you the application of varnish afterwards if it is already colored.

Advantages of using acrylic:

  • Very durable: can withstand pressure, heat and water exposure.
  • Long lasting: When applied correctly, it can last for 3 weeks or more.
  • No need to pass under a UV lamp, it dries in the open air

Disadvantages of using acrylic:

  • Hard on your nails: Acrylic is not gentle on your nails, especially when you peel them off.
  • Difficult to remove: To remove them, you will need to soak your nails in acetone for 10-15 minutes.
  • More expensive.
  • Requires a lot of modeling and filing.

3 – Gel or Polygel Varnish

Gel polish works best with false nails that are not opaque or very dark in color. If the color of the capsule is very dark, the UV or Led lamp will not be able to pass through the varnish and harden it. But for pressed nails that are pretty clear or transparent, gel can be a very strong adhesive allowing the nails to stay in place for 1-2 weeks!

OK! I believe you have know 3 alternatives to replace false nail glue. In addition, I advise you to invest in a complete manicure kit to care for your nails!
