Hello Musers! Its been awhile since I’ve had a mani worth blogging about.
Which is why it’s been such a long time since I’ve written a Mani Monday post.
But I recently learned how to get glue-on nails to last, and just had to share!
As you all know, I love having fun with my nails. It’s a love & a hobby of mine. I brings me so much joy to look down at my hands and see cute nailart, a beautiful color, and well manicured nails! And to that end, you can always tell when I’m not feeling like myself or am feeling depressed, when my nails aren’t done.
I love trying it all!
Nailart, nail stickers, polish strips, press-on nails & glue-on nails. Usually when I paint or do nailart with Avon nail enamel, my mani will last a good week to week and a half, which is good for all the things I do with my hands! Nail stickers & polish strips tend to only last a few days, and press-on & glue-on nails only last about 2 days. Glue-on nails are super time consuming, especially the ones that you paint yourself, so to only have them last 2 days just stopped being worth it for me!
However, something caught my attention the other day, while scrolling through YouTube.
When I read the title, How To Make Glue-on Nails Last A Week I thought I’d watch just to see what tips I might be able to use. Some of the tips I had never done before, so I thought I’d give them a try. Plus, the YouTuber MomHauls uses products from the Dollar Tree, so I knew it wouldn’t cost much to try out her tips.
Here are the tips I learned & tried:
- Push back & trim nail cuticles if needed
- After buffing nails, brush off the leftover dust with a makeup brush
- Clean nails with alcohol
- Trim glue-on nails to make sure they aren’t touching any skin
- Place 1 small dot of glue on the back of the fake nails and let it set for a bit before applying to the nail bed
- After applying the glue-on nails, let them set for a few minutes before using your hands
Here is the video:

I am genuinely pleased with how they are lasting! First of all, the Dollar Tree nail glue is incredible! I was totally surprised at how well it worked. Second, I think the tips I followed really did help. I’m going on day 4 and these glue-on nails are holding on strong! I’ve been doing all of my usal work, wiping counters, washing dishes, washing my hands frequently throughout the day, cooking, washing my hair, etc. And not one nail feels loose or has fallen off!
I’m excited to try different glue-on nails now that I know how to make them last!
