It is possible to remove press-on nails with floss, but it may take some time and patience.

Here's a step-by-step guide:

1.Begin by washing your hands with soap and water to ensure that they are clean.

2.Take a piece of dental floss and double it up so that it is stronger and less likely to break.

3.Slide the floss under the edge of the press-on nail and gently wiggle it back and forth to loosen the adhesive.

4.Once the floss is under the nail, use a sawing motion to work it further under the nail until you reach the other side.

5.Slowly pull the floss back and forth while applying pressure upward to lift the press-on nail off your natural nail.

6.Continue this process around the entire edge of the nail until it comes off.

7.If you find that the press-on nail is still attached, you can try using a cuticle pusher or orangewood stick to gently pry it off.

Remember to be gentle and take your time to avoid damaging your natural nails. If you experience any pain or discomfort, stop immediately and seek the advice of a professional.
