Frequently asked questions
How strong are the nails?

You can guarantee a superior, durable and reusable manicure with my Made to Order sets, thanks to the thorough prep of each nail. To ensure an even greater adhesion and longer wear, unlike other press on brands all of my MTO sets are pre etched before sending for maximum adhesion.

All Made to Order sets are made by myself using salon quality materials, including gel tips (not plastic*), hard gel, gel polishes, pigments and genuine Swarovski crystals.

They are always top coated with high shine or matte finish UV gel for maximum strength and wear. If you have a question about a specific design or it's finish just drop me a message.

*the tip shape ‘short coffin’ is currently only available in plastic.

What size nails do I need?

I highly recommend ordering a Sample Sizing Kit to ensure the perfect fit before ordering your custom nails.

As of 2021 I only use Apres Gel-X, Kiara Sky and E-Nail Couture gel tips (and not plastic tips), so if you have previously purchased your sizing may be slightly different. I am more than happy to assist with any conversions, so pop me a message.

If you already know the sizes you require (i.e. if you have had Apres extensions before) you can provide this sizing - PLEASE SPECIFY IF THEY WERE NATURAL OR SCULPTED TIPS.

If you are unsure about measuring please do not guess your size! There are no refunds or exchanges for wrong fit (unless a sizing kit was purchased in the shape that you then go on to order your nail set/s in).

What are the shape/length options?

All of my MTO designs are made to your specifications, which means you get to select the tip shape and length that suits you. My shape options are found under my Shop Info tab.

You will select which tip shape you would like for each set. I use Apres Gel X, Kiara Sky and Enail Couture tips which are all high strength, durable gel nails.

Please double check your selections before ordering, and if you notice an error after you've checked out just drop me an email at dippycownails@gmail.com (or reply to the confirmation email, and I'll pick that up!).

How do I apply the nails and prevent pop-offs? 1/2

I pre etch all of my Made to Order sets to ensure a strong adhesion.

Prep is the key to long wear and is a pivotal stage of the application process. Each MTO nail order includes application and removal instructions, a nail prep pack (alcohol wipe, cuticle pusher, nail file and buffer), and 12 adhesive tabs.

Makarrt and KDS glue can be added and are perfect for 1-2 week wear, and the adhesive tabs are strong enough for wear of around 1-2 days at a time and also make your new nails completely reusable.

For strongest wear I recommend combining the tabs with glue, which is also a great way to fill any gap between your natural nail and the c curve of the press on (if you have flatter nails and are selecting a sculpted tip shape). 1/2

How do I apply the nails and prevent pop-offs? 2/2

Following the prep pack information provided with each order, apply the tabs to the natural nail first and then add the glue on top of the tab, before firmly pushing and holding the press on in place.

The use of a nail primer and/or dehydrator before applying a quality nail glue will make the press ons adhere with the strongest bond. These are the same steps used in a salon before acrylic application and are great if you have more oily skin.
together. 2/2

Can I reuse the nails?

The use of adhesive tabs will make the nails the nails reusable.

For frequent wearers who prefer the use of glue, I recommend purchasing an inexpensive electronic filer (a few £/$ on Amazon) which will enable you to gently buff away dried on residue and allow for many more wears.

What will come with my nails?

All MTO orders include a nail prep pack (12 adhesive tabs, alcohol wipe, nail file, cuticle pusher and buffing block). KDS or Makarrt nail glue can be added for even stronger wear.
All nail sets come with full application and removal instructions.

All press on orders over £50 include a gift!

Made to Order sets are packaged in jewellery display boxes.

Unless you request otherwise, multiple orders will be packaged together to keep your shipping costs down.

How long will my nails take to be sent?

All Made to Order nails are hand made to order by myself, and due to such high demand there is a waiting list for these luxe items.

I aim to create nails as soon as possible with current creation time being approx 2-3 weeks*. This is an estimated timescale and never a guarantee. Orders may take less time but they may take longer.

By placing an order you are confirming your understanding.
Decals, Sample Sets, Adhesive Tabs and Glue are dispatched within 3-5 business days.

Please note that creation time doesn't include shipping time, which you can find more info on below. I pride myself on creating and delivering the highest quality nails and won't rush yours, or anyone else's art.

Can I request a custom order/changes to an existing design?

I love working on custom orders and bringing ideas to life!

If you have a concept in mind, or perhaps you've seen something that inspires you just send me a message and we can chat through ideas together.

I do not recreate the work of other press on artists.

If you'd like a custom design please contact me with as many details as possible and any inspo pics.

All Made to Order sets are custom made, so if
you would prefer a different colour scheme, shorter shape or design tweaks then just make a note in the order!

Like for like customisations are complimentary but if you would like to add crystals or other more intricate detailing please contact me first to confirm pricing.

How do I apply your decals?

All decal orders come with full application instructions and practice decals. They are recommended for professional use with gel/acrylic for the best application.
