PRESS ON NAILS
Where is my package?
All sets, with the exception of ready to ship sets, are made to order solely by Maya. Standard processing time is 7-14 business days. Depending on order volume, turnaround time can be faster or slower. When your order is shipped, you will receive an email with your package's tracking information. If you place an order at a time of high volume it is expected there may be delays.
How do I know the size I need?
What nail glue do you recommend?
Your choice of nail glue can vary based on your personal desires for nail wear. For a stronger and longer hold, a professional nail glue like KDS Nail Glue or IBD 5 Second Nail Glue is recommended. Kiss Maximum Speed nail glue has a great retention time as well. For irregular shaped nails, a silicon based nail glue would provide the most comfortable adherence.
How long do the nails stay on?
Wear time depends on how well you prep your natural nails before application, how rough you are on your hands and your choice of adhesive. With nails tabs you can wear them for a few days or even a few hours if you're wearing them for a special occasion. With nail glue, for about 1 to 3 weeks. We include detailed instructions with every order, there is also a tutorial on our Instagram.
I'm worried that my nails are going to pop off. Any tips on how I can avoid this?
Make sure to follow our Nail Prep instructions included with your order or watch the tutorial on our Instagram. Proper application is the KEY to long wear.
Choose the right size nails! If the nail doesn't fit don't force it, a nail that's too small will pop off easily. Size up, and if it's too big you can always file down the sides.
Make sure you are not applying the nail to your cuticle, this will create lifting.
At the end of the day, press-ons are more vulnerable than natural or acrylic nails. Too much water based activities can cause the nail adhesive to loosen and your nails to pop off. Being too rough can also make your nails more vulnerable to breakage. Be gentle with yourself, your hands, and especially your nails. They aren't made for heavy lifting, use it as an excuse to sit back and relax!
Are the nails reusable?
Yes. The use of nail tabs will make the nails reusable.
For those that prefer nail glue, I would suggest purchasing an inexpensive electric nail file. It'll gently buff away any built up glue on the back of the nails and give you many more wears. You can find a video tutorial on Instagram TV @sculptedbymaya
Can you replace a lost nail?
Yes. Click here to order your replacement nail.
What if the nails I purchased don't fit?
Due to the handmade nature of our product we are not held responsible if the wrong size is ordered. We have sizing sample packs available and a size guide to help you can find the perfect fit.
If the size is off on a nail or two I suggest purchasing our Replacement nail option.
Are the nails strong?
Yes, our nails are painted with a layer of builder gel and at least 4 coats of gel polish. If you'd like even more strength we can always add a thin layer of acrylic for an additional charge. See our add on menu to add this to your nail sets.
Do you offer custom designs?
We do! If you have a concept in mind or would like us to recreate something you saw, just fill out our contact form so we can come up with a design.
Can I make changes to a design?
Yes, all sets are made to order and may be customized to your liking. If you prefer a different color, matte or glossy finish, shorter length or small design changes simply make a request in the notes section of your order. For bigger changes that include adding on more or changing crystals please contact us first to approve changes or to receive an invoice to make a custom order.
How many nails come in each set?
All pre sized sets come with 10 reusable nails. 'All Size' sets come with 20 nails, two in each size.
