    You can use polygel or builder gel to attach nails. With polygel, you can do a lot of inlays this way. The issue (as Cutie101 pointed out) is getting them off because neither soaks off. You have to file them with an efile, which you have to be super careful with. it is very easy to over file and end up with sensitive/paper thin nails unfortunately. Soft gel adhesive (like Apres) lasts 2-3 weeks on me usually & it soaks off in 15-20 minutes (so no real nail damage that way). I seriously WISH someone would make soak off polygel that is decent quality though!

    if you're interested in using polygel with press ons (usually referred to as the "lazy girl method"), here's a great video by Femi Beauty. She (the content creator) makes a bunch of lazy girl method polygel videos that are super informative & creative. SlayByJay is another content creator who does an amazing job and her stuff is probably a bit more beginner friendly if you just want to learn.

    I personally would do fills on them as they grew out, but I assume the chicks who don't do acrylic and are relying just on the fake nails would eventually soak them off or wait until they started coming loose or falling off to pop them all off. No clue though.
