UV gel can be used as a glue for false nails?

Using UV gel as a glue for false nails or press-on nails is not recommended. While UV gel is commonly used to create extensions or overlays on natural nails, it is not designed to serve as an adhesive for attaching false nails.

False nails, including press-on nails, typically come with their own adhesive, which is either in the form of double-sided adhesive tabs or nail glue. These adhesives are specifically formulated to provide a secure and long-lasting bond between the false nails and your natural nails.

If you try to use UV gel as a substitute for the recommended adhesive, it may not provide the proper adhesion, and the false nails may not stay securely in place. Additionally, UV gel requires curing under a UV or LED lamp, which is a process that false nails are not designed to undergo.

To ensure the best results and a safe application, it's advisable to use the adhesive provided with the false nails. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for applying the false nails, and if the kit includes nail glue, use it according to the recommended guidelines. Using the correct adhesive will help ensure a strong bond and a comfortable and secure fit for your press-on nails.
