  • I’ve tried roughing up the inside of the press on before I glue the nail on and mine have lasted for about 2 and half weeks doing that without needing to reapply glue.

  • I don't care what the design is. There's no way press on nails should cost more or around the same price as a full set 😒 because in all reality it's very cheap to create press on nails.

  • Thank you soo much for this video. Since starting culinary school I'm not allowed to wear any polish on my nails. This will allow me to look fabulous and still be able to be functional for school.

  • I LOVE hanging cute glitz nails. But if it’s a busy week at the studio, or When I have a lot of precision work to do with my hands, nails can be such a pain in the butt. So I am loving this option! Nice fancy nails but I don’t have to commit to a month XOXO so glad I found your channel!

  • I love The Nailest! It’s $15 extra for gel or acrylic overlay. I definitely shop the Jackie Aina selections lol!! I never thought I would do press on nails until I saw Jackie Aina wearing her press ons. I have been using them the whole quarantine and I’m not sure if I will be going back to the salon!

  • If you etch your nail and then the underneath of the fake nails on the part that is going to be adhering to the base of your natural nail-it can make it last a bit longer

  • Yes Jackie! I stopped going b/c of the health and the nail culture but mostly the health of my nails. They were getting wrecked plus its not an extra expense I needed. And I also put nail hardener on before I do my press on to help protect my nails from the glue b/c over time the glue messes my nails up as well. Also why the acv soak, never seen that before, curious as to what that does for the nails?

  • As someone who actually loves acrylics but is too lazy and scared to go get fill ins, I really wanna try these out. But I just have one damn question... how the actual hell are you supposed to shower/wash/shampoo your hair with these?! Doesn’t the glue break down with water? I’ve never had press ons last throughout a shower. Ever.

  • Thank you for making this video Jackie! And thank you for calling out nail salon culture. It’s so silly some people be thinking that cause you make a lotta money you shouldn’t have to do press ons. Nail salon workers are too often exploited. I’m encouraged to do my own nails now and really appreciate the tutorial! Just ordered some gorgeous black long coffin press ons with gold flakes through Etsy.

  • I buy those cheap plain white amazon nails that you get like hundreds for less than a tenner, and do designs myself, i do it cuz it’s cheaper and I hate the look of bulky nails that you can so easily see are fake and way too long for me personally, thanks for this video Jackie, nice of you to show people how to take care of their nails

  • For soaking the nails off: I like to soak cotton pads in the acetone and wrap them around my nail and then secure THAT with plastic wrap. It saves on acetone but more importantly for me, I don’t have to be stuck with my hands in a bowl 😭 my adhd won’t allow it

I AM FREAKING APPALLED AT SOME OF THE MISTREATMENTS THESE PEOPLE PUT THEIR NAILS AND NAIL BEDS THROUGH!!! Roughly pushing back their cuticles? Cutting their cuticles!? I'm utterly horrified

  • Tip: when soaking nails off, fill a bowl with hot water, put acetone in a sandwich bag, put your nails in the sandwich bag with the acetone and then put it in the hot water and you can rub the nails with your fingers while in the acetone to help remove them but they will soak off so much faster this way.
