YES! Please only momentarily preheat the nail on the device, waiting 2 full seconds then instantly turning it back off by clicking it three times rapidly. This is to warm the surface, and allows you to easily remove the nail with your fingers. DO NOT TOUCH IF THE NAIL HAS BEEN HEATED TO WHERE IT IS TOO HOT TO TOUCH OR WILL BURN YOU. This will unfreeze the nail and make it easily removable and prevent damaging the heating element in the process of removing the nail.
