FAQ

 What are Gemini claws press on nails? 

Press-on nails, also known as glue-on nails, are just artificial nails pre-made in the customers preferred shape length & custom size. They are made using layers of gel and art products on top of full cover gel sculpted tips. These press on nails can be in almost any design you choose and we have over 60 colours available (we can also custom mix colours if you have a specific colour variant in mind). Your nails can last a few hours by using nail tabs or between 4 days - 3 weeks if using glue. The length of time they can last when using glue depends on how you prep your nails and how many drops of nail glue you use. Press-on nails are the new way of manicure! Gone are the times of tacky fake nails you would only buy for your teenage daughter. These are a great alternative when you just don’t have time for a nail salon appointment.

How do I know what size I am? 

To find your size please head to the sizing chart to learn how to measure your nails. If you are still unsure what your size is then it would be best to buy a sizing kit in your desired shape. A sizing kit has all sizes clearly labelled and all you need to do is find which ones fit on your own nails, write the sizes down and send them to us via email or in the check out notes of your order. 

How long can I wear the nails? 

It depends on how well you prep your natural nails before application, how rough you are on your hands. Using nail glue usually lasts 1-3 weeks. There is also the option of nail tabs which last 1-3 days. 

Are the nails reusable?

Yes. The use of nail tabs will ensure your nails are reusable. You can also reuse your nails when you use glue if you follow the correct removal instructions. By soaking your nails off after minimum 5 days wear using warm water and dishwashing liquid is the best way to keep your nails in good condition. For those that prefer nail nail glue, I would suggest purchasing an inexpensive electric nail file. It'll gently buff away any built up glue on the back of the nails for reuse.

Will they damage my natural nails? 

No, press-on nails will not damage your real nails, especially if you follow the proper application and removal processes outlined below. ... In order to keep your natural nails healthy, use a cuticle and nail oil every time you use acetone.

Do you offer custom orders?

We do! If you have a concept in mind or have seen any pictures that gave you some ideas, flick us a message on any of our socials and we can brainstorm together. However we do not completely copy other artists press on nail sets. As respect for them, if you like their work then please buy off them. We are totally happy to take inspo though.

What's the difference between ready to ship set and made to order sets?

RTS sets are IN STOCK and ready to be shipped in 24 hours. Made to order sets are added to the queue of orders in payment order and have a wait time depending on demand at the time. 

How long will it take to ship my order? 

Sample sizing packs ships in 48 hours. 

As for our nail sets, all of our nails are made to order/you pre order them. (made to order styles and custom made to order styles). Once you purchase your set it gets added to the queue and processing time varies depending on order volume. 

Our RTS sets are the only sets we have stock of and are pre made and are able to ship immediately. These sets are usually in limited stock and once they are out you will need to wait for a new drop.

Our current Turnaround time for made to order sets is 3-20 days depending order volume. These numbers fluctuate and may change as I get busier. Please keep in mind that these nails take time to make and I am a one woman business. I take great pride in my work & strive for perfection on every design.
