Apply a small amount of nail glue on the fake nail. Please allow the glue to fuse with the nail without letting bubbles appear in it. (If you are afraid of glue hurting your natural nails, you can apply a top coat to protect your nails before applying glue.) Then put the selected nail of the corresponding size on it, be sure to perfectly overlap with the natural nail, press it with your hand for 10 seconds to make it adhere firmly or until you can feel the tip has stuck.

Gently buff the side and tip of the nail. In order to make the new nail have the same curvature as the natural nail, you can place the index finger and thumb on both sides of the nail and gently press to make it appear natural.
