GOJELLE Press Ons: Glue VS Adhesive Tabs

When it comes to Gojelle press on nails, achieving that flawless, salon worthy manicure at home has never been easier or more accessible. However, one question often arises: Should I use adhesive tabs or nail glue for application?

Choose based on your lifestyle- if you prioritise the flexibility to change your nails often, adhesive tabs are your go to. On the other hand, if you're looking for a more long lasting application nail glue might be your best bet.

 

Adhesive Tabs: Short lasting

Adhesive tabs are double sided, pre cut sticky tabs that you apply directly to your natural nail, followed by the press on. They're designed for those who prefer a commitment free manicure and like to switch up their nail designs frequently.

 

Nail Glue: Long lasting

Nail glue offers a more permanent solution for those looking to extend the life of their press on nails. It's a liquid adhesive applied directly to the natural nail followed by the press on, creating a strong bond that can last up to several weeks.

 

Let's compare this by 5 key components of the at home mani: Application time, ease of application, reusability, holding power, ease of removal.

Application time: Equivalent. Using either the Adhesive Tabs or the Nail Glue will require you to hold down firmly for 30 seconds. 

Ease of application: Equivalent. Both options are incredibly user-friendly and perfect for beginners. Application for either can be done in minutes, without any mess.

Reusability: Equivalent. Both options offer minimum of 3 wears, depending on how long each wear is. 

Holding power: Different. Nail glue provides a durable bond, making it ideal for those looking for a longer lasting manicure, lasting up to 3 weeks. Adhesive tabs do not offer the same long lasting wear as glue and are best for short term use, lasting 4 days. A manicure applied with nail glue can withstand more exposure to water, prolonged exposure to water will weaken the adhesive tab faster than nail glue.

Ease of removal: Equivalent. Both options require 15 minutes of soaking in soap and water for removal. The time may vary depending on your application process and the length of wear.

 

Experimenting with both adhesive tabs and glue can help you understand what works best for your nails and lifestyle, ensuring your manicure always meets your needs.

The decision between adhesive tabs and nail glue comes down to personal preference, lifestyle, and how long you intend to wear your press on nails. Regardless of your choice, both methods offer simple and convenient application and removal processes, as well as the opportunity to achieve a beautiful manicure from the comfort of your home, or wherever you desire.
