FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are press-on nails:
Nails that give you a non-damaging, perfect manicure instantly and in the comfort of your own home. What’s more? Press-on nails can be removed and reapplied countless times and in a fraction of the time and money spent in salons.
In each kit: 24 universal nails (10 different sizes, all pre-glued), instructions, mini file, 2x cleansing wipes and mini glue.
Will they fit me? (Mani-In-Minutes Collection): The MB Mani-In-Minutes Collection has been designed to fit everyone from early teens to all genders, shapes and sizes, so the odds are pretty strong. We are confident fit is nothing you have to worry about. MB Nails can be filed (if needed) to accustom more petite nail beds. They file like butter only taking a few seconds to transform.
In each kit: 10 of our premium handcrafted press-on nails, file, glue, nail tabs and a luxe box (nail wardrobe).
Will they fit me? (Premium Collection): Our Premium range has been designed to fit a wide range of sizes set up into 3 categories—Small, Medium and Large with the option of custom sizing (5-10 day lead-time).
Prior to purchasing, it is important to check your sizing against our nail chart. Mafia Beauty will not be held responsible for any incorrect measurements made on your behalf. If you are unsure about what size you are exactly, it is always best to size up by 1mm. Please see Sizing Guide for more info.
Nails won’t stay on: More glue! We promise this will fix the issue. Please read the instructions before applying to help ensure you’re applying enough glue for your desired wear time. If you did read them and are still having issues please try these tips:
- In case you have oily nail beds, gently buff your nail and swipe over with a little nail polish remover to each nail before applying to give extra grip.
- Still add more glue, a pea-sized dot to each nail (more on the thumb), and a tiny bit to the back of the MB nail. Let tack up for 10 seconds before applying.
- The longer and harder you hold the better. Hold down each nail with your thumb, ensuring it’s covering the entire surface of your nail. If an area doesn’t receive pressure, air pockets will form causing the nail to come off early. Hold each nail for 30 seconds.
How long do Press-On Nails last?
Many people develop concerns about how long an application will last. Although press-on nails are highly affordable, you don’t want to feel embarrassed when one of your nails falls off in public. Depending on how fast your natural nails grow and the kind of tasks you do, a complete set can last you up to two weeks.
Durable? Yes! With a weeks+ worth of glue (a pea-sized dot) and proper application you can garden, do laundry, change a tire, style hair, shower (yes, they stay on in water)… Whatever you need to do, Marfia Nails will stay on through. The adhesive and backup nails can always be brought along in case of an emergency.
Glue ingredients: Ethyl Cyanoacrylate, Polymethyl Methacrylate, BHA, Red 7 (CI 15850)
Reshaping: Easily transform the shape of your Marfia nails with a nail cutter or a file. Nail cutters are great to dramatically cut down the length. Files are great for minor touch-ups or reshaping. Reshaping breaks the protective coating, which helps the design last longer. Reshaping will eventually cause very minor fading at the tip of the nail. This is not easily noticeable and can be touched up every 5 days or so with the file included.
Animal friendly: Yes! This product is 100% cruelty-free, vegan, and recyclable! As part of Mafia Beauty’s desire to create a feel-good brand, we strongly oppose the use of animal products/testing. So go ahead, flaunt them beautiful nails, guilt free!
