Application Kit Includes:

  • Alcohol wipes
  • Emery board
  • KDS Nail Glue x 1 (In the case Glue cannot be shipped to your location, extra Adhesive tabs will be provided)
  • Adhesive Tabs
  • Instructions

Correctly prepped for Glue, nails can stay on for for up to 1-2 weeks. Make sure to follow the correct nail prep process to ensure long lasting wear and be aware that we do produce natural oils which differ from person to person which may affect wear. Glue can be gently filed off the nail once removed and stored for later use.

Adhesive Tabs with correct prep can stay on for up to 1-2 days and is a perfect way to wear and re-use sets temporarily as well as being very easy to remove!

Remember, it's all in the prep! Each set comes with instructions to help guide you through the process.

Are your nails re-usable?

Absolutely! La Emperie Artisan Nails are reusable by taking good care of them when wearing and during the removal process!  If you prefer nail glue, a great tip is to purchase an inexpensive electric nail file so you can very gently buff away any built up glue on the back of the nails before you reuse it. You can also work with a regular nail file to remove built up glue.

Processing Times

All nails are hand crafted, detailed, inspected, packaged and shipped. Some sets may take longer than others to complete given their complexity.
