Flexifinger Frequently Asked Questions

 

How do I get the nail form to stay stuck on the sides of the Flexifinger?

You can put a band of tape around the Flexifinger at the point where the nail form would stick.

 

How to I secure the nail properly?

Make sure the correct nail tip is fitted and pushed far enough into the finger stem under the cuticle. If you cut the nail tip down after it is inserted it will ensure that enough length is securing the nail in place under the silicone. This will make it very secure and prevent any wobbling when filing.

 

What is the best surface to stick the base to?

The suction base is exceptionally strong and will stay stuck for a long time on a tile, glass or shiny surface.

 

What happens if I file and accidently split the silicone?

You can use the sharp edge of the cuticle pusher tool – you can reshape the shape of the cuticle. Be careful of your own fingers when doing this and cut the cuticle down when the Flexifinger is on the stand. Careful not to take it too far back as it will make the nail loose when next inserted. Only do this if needed – otherwise contact Flexifinger – our staff will be happy to advise.

 

How can I order a Flexifinger?

You can buy Flexifinger at our online store or look for a stockist under the stockist page for a stockist near you.

How do I clean my Flexifinger?

Can I put my Flexifinger under a UV light?
