Do you make custom sets?
Yes, if you would like a custom set, we would be more than happy to work with you! As we continue to grow we will have more decal/bling options available!
Custom sets can be anywhere from $30 to $65+ depending on complexity. Something simple such as changing the color on a pre-made set can be done for no extra charge. Just leave a note in the box at checkout with a short description of the color you'd like to change. For something more elaborate, or a completely customized set, DM us on Instagram or contact us here from our website to inquire!
Once we decide a price, select “Custom Set” on our website, choose the specified price from the drop-down menu, and leave your nail size in the note box! We will send you a “proof” before your set is shipped to make sure you love it! Please note that we will not ship any custom orders until we receive your approval.
How are our nails made?
At The Pressed Princess, we believe in providing quality nails for our clients, so that they won’t even miss going to the nail salon! That is why we make ALL of our nail sets using a hard builder gel base, paired with coats of high quality gel polish to ensure a durable, highly pigmented nail that can be reused over and over again.
Hard gel is not necessarily better than acrylic nails, but we choose to make our nails using hard gel instead of acrylic because:
- Hard gel is hypoallergenic, so it is less likely to cause allergies than acrylic. This is because hard gel uses oligomers rather than polymers.
- Hard gel is more flexible and stronger than acrylic, but it’s not as hard. Someone who is accustomed to acrylic may feel that hard gel is weaker, but that is not the case. Hard gel is actually more resistant to lifting and cracking than acrylic.
- Hard gel is super shiny, makes for better adhesion, and can hold color longer than acrylic without yellowing or discoloration.
How long do these nails last?
This depends on several factors including application, nail glue quality, and maintenance. If applied correctly, these nails will stay on for 7 to 14+ days at a time. When you order a set from The Pressed Princess, we will include a guide on how to apply your nails for maximum wear! (This guide is also available on our Instagram page). If well-maintained, they can be re-worn again (just soak in warm, soapy water, file the glue off of the nail and reapply) or you can order more!
An alternative option is to use adhesive tabs! These tabs usually only last for a 1-2 days, but they are the easiest way to re-wear/re-apply. We do not sell adhesive tabs on our website at this time.
We make our nails using several coats of high quality gel, and all of our sets are based with a layer of hard builder gel to provide maximum strength and to allow for a luxury, reusable wear.
