Gel Pads: The Must-Have for Perfect Application of Press-On Nails

When it comes to applying your Press-On Nails , you have two options: good old liquid glue or Gel Pads . At Roxy Nails Paris, although we offer liquid glue as an option, it is the Gel Pads that we have chosen to include in your Press on Nails kits. In this article, we explain in detail why we are our favorites !

Find out how these little pads can make all the difference to achieving a flawless, long-lasting manicure .

What are Gel Pads?

Gel Pads , also called sticky patches , are small round-shaped double-sided adhesives specially designed for applying Press-On Nails . They are included in your false nail kits or can be purchased separately . These pads are made from a flexible and adhesive material, generally silicone gel or acrylates, which allows the false nails to be attached to the natural nails.

How long do Gel Pads last?

This varies between brands. While the majority of Gel Pads offer adhesion limited to a few hours, Roxy Nails Paris was able to reinvent this little accessory with a specific formulation which offers solid, waterproof adhesion , guaranteeing that the false nails stay in place for an average of 5-7 days without peeling off .

How to use Gel Pads?

Using Gel Pads is simple and does not require any special skills. Before applying them, make sure your nails are clean and well prepared , filed and free of any traces of sebum, cream or oil using a cotton pad soaked in alcohol. Then, gently remove the protective film from the Gel Pad and place it on the nail , correctly aligning the edge of the pad 1mm from the cuticle. Press firmly to ensure maximum adhesion and massage before removing the tab . Once all the Gel Pads are in place, you can proceed to apply the Press-On Nails by attaching them directly to the Gel Pads. You will find a complete video tutorial right here:

What are the advantages of Gel Pads?

Gel Pads offer several advantages over liquid glue or any other permanent fixing method (resin, gel, acrylic, semi-permanent, etc.). First of all, Gel Pads are easy to use , even for beginners, offering precise and smudge-free application . They are also gentle on natural nails , causing no harm or damage when removing false nails.
