GOJELLE Press Ons: How to Resize and Reshape

 

Gojelle Press Ons have revolutionised the beauty industry, offering a quick, affordable, and convenient alternative to traditional manicures. Finding the perfect fit and style straight out of the box can sometimes be a challenge, luckily, customising the size and shape of your Gojelles Press Ons is a simple DIY task.

What will you need?

Before you begin, it's crucial to have the right tools at hand. You'll need:

Clipping 

If your Gojelles Press Ons are too long or you prefer a different shape, nail cutters will be your best friend. Here's how to do it without causing any splits or damage:

  1. Clip Gradually: Instead of trying to clip off a large portion at once, make several small clips. This reduces the risk of cracking or splitting the nail.
  2. Angle Wisely: If you're aiming for a square or squoval shape, clip the nail straight across. For round or almond shapes, angle your cuts to the desired silhouette.

Filing and Shaping

Once you've clipped your nails to the approximate length and shape, it's time to refine them:

  • File the Base: Start by filing the base of the nail to match the size and curves of your cuticle.
  • File from the Underside: To maintain the integrity of the design on the top, file your nails from underneath. 
  • Gentle Strokes: Use gentle, one-directional strokes to avoid creating any snags or roughness on the edge of the nail. The goal is to achieve a smooth, natural-looking edge.
  • Check Your Work: Periodically compare the nails against each other to ensure they're even and symmetrical.

Smooth the Edges

After achieving the desired shape, it's important to smooth the edges to prevent any catching or snagging:

  • Use The Fixer File: Lightly run the fixer file file along the edges to smooth out any micro-roughness. Avoid heavy-handed filing to ensure you don't accidentally alter the shape or length you've worked to achieve.

Apply Top Coat

Resizing and reshaping can sometimes leave the top surface of your Gojelles slightly scratched or matte:

  • Apply a Thin Top Coat: Cover the entire nail with a thin layer of top coat to restore shine and cure for 60 seconds in your Nail Lamp.

Customising the size and shape of your Gojelles at home is a simple yet effective way to achieve a tailored manicure without the salon price tag. With the right tools and techniques, you can easily adjust any set of Gojelles to fit your preferences. Remember to file gently, clip wisely, and always seal your hard work with a top coat to enjoy beautiful, durable, and customised nails at your fingertips.

 

*If your Gojelles have a pre-painted French tip, be extra cautious. Resizing and reshaping could alter the intended look.
