Why I love the BTArtbox 3-in-1 French Nails:
As a self-proclaimed press-on nail junkie, I’ll admit that I’m a tough nut to crack; I don’t get impressed easily. This is especially true for any French manicure design. I wore this style for my engagement, and since then, it’s been hard to find French manicure press-ons that measure up.
With that said, believe me when I tell you that these nail tips are unlike anything I’ve tried before. They absolutely blew me away and left my jaw hanging on the floor. Seriously—they’re that good. My favorite thing about them is their design. They’re so soft and super flexible, which makes them both easy to apply and wear; working while wearing BTArtbox’s 3-in-1 French nails is a breeze. Also, the 3-in-1 soft gel technology makes them less likely to snap and pop off than your typical rigid acrylics. Likewise, I also love how beautifully they wear; they look so natural, blend in with my cuticles seamlessly, and look absolutely stunning after the top coat.
Additionally, I’m also a huge fan of the price point. For just $25 (or less if you use the code ‘flawless’ at checkout!) you can easily get 4 or 5 manicures out of the entire box of 300 nails. That’s waaaayyyy friendlier to your wallet compared to taking a trip to the nail salon or buying press-ons in-store or online. With BTArtbox, you truly get your money’s worth, and a salon-worthy mani to boot.
How to apply BTArtbox 3-in-1 French nails:
Another added bonus about these nails is that they can be applied using two different methods: without an at-home gel system, and with an at-home gel system.
How-to without a gel system:
Prep your nails by removing the extra cuticles, filing, and buffing as needed; be sure to remove any excess dust and oils with an alcohol pad. From there, match the nail tips accordingly with your natural nails and set aside. Then, apply nail glue to the base of the nail tip, and apply at a 45° angle to the base of your natural nail. Hold for 30-60 seconds, and repeat until done. Finish with a top coat and you’re good to go!
How-to with a gel system:
This method is guaranteed to last the longest out of the two. It’s slightly more involved and requires additional items, but it’s worth it IMO.
- Prep your nails by removing extra cuticles, filing, and buffing as needed; be sure to remove any excess dust and oils with an alcohol pad. Then, apply BTArtbox nail dehydrate for maximum adhesion
- Match the nail tips with natural nails
- Apply BTArtbox 4-in-1 gel nail glue on natural nails. Then, apply to base end of nail tips, and apply to natural nail at a 45° angle. Hold and press until glue reaches the free edge, then press down while simultaneously flash curing under UV lamp for 15 seconds
- Cure for 60 seconds under UV lamp to ensure nails are fully dry
- Apply a top coat, and you’re good to go!
