5. Are press-on nails better than a manicure? 

In our experience of offering manicure services prior before The Base Coat, we believe that the press-on nails are much more safer and harmless compared to getting a fresh manicure.

The reason being is that it can weaken your natural nails. The manicure process can lead to dehydration and thin out your nail plate. Not only that, the exposure to UV lights can even lead to skin damage. This is why we opted for press-on nails!

The process of applying press-on nails is relatively easy as well. Nail amateurs will also be able to pick it up even without prior experience.

Press-on nails can also last for ages are it does not chip off. They will not loose their shine or shape. If one pops off, you can easily just stick it back with either glue or the sticker tab.
