Instructions

    Adhesive Jewelry

  1. 1

    Select a "faux" nose stud designed to work with a special adhesive.

  2. 2

    Apply the adhesive to the back of the stud.

  3. 3

    Select the position on your nose where you want to place the fake stud.

  4. 4

    Carefully press the stud onto your nose. The strong adhesive will last up to several days.

    Magnetic Jewelry

  1. 1

    Select a fake nose stud that uses a magnet to keep the stud in place on your nose.

  2. 2

    Slip the backing magnet inside your nostril at the approximate location of where you plan to place the stud.

  3. 3

    Carefully place the fake stud over the backing magnet until the magnetic force causes the stud to "stick" to the backing magnet.

Tips and warnings

  • Fake nose rings offer the easiest solution by simply clipping onto your septum.
  • Fake nose studs frequently use cheaper materials. Avoid using adhesive or magnetic jewellery for prolonged periods if you have metal allergies. Do not use any form of nose jewellery if you have nasal ulcerations or herpes lesions.
