- Line up the end of your fingernail with the slot in the pick
- Push the pick onto your nail while keeping the back lifted up off of the top of your nail as long as possible as you slide it on

- Hold the pick on tightly for a few seconds
- Unplug the Activator
To Take Off Tiptonic Fingernail Picks
