How To Apply
Hey everyone! Here is a quick video to show you how easy it is to apply our nail wraps. These wraps are great for kids and adults and last so much longer than traditional nail polish. They go on dry so there isn't any smudging or drying time. We think you'll love them as much as we do. Enjoy!
Easy application steps for our nail wraps:
1) Select nail wrap based on width of your nail
2) Remove the protective clear cover
3) Using the silver base, peel strip from backing
4) Apply the wrap to the nail, firmly smooth to release any wrinkles.
5) File the excess strip from the edge of the nail.
6) Apply top coat for an even longer lasting manicure.
To remove your wraps we suggest using traditional nail polish removers. Both Acetone, and non-acetone nail polish removers work great on our wraps.
Here are a few tips to help make your mani last.
1) Make sure you clean your nails with alcohol or hand sanitizer before application. Any polish, traditional base coat, lotions or natural oils can cause the nails to lift.
2) Lightly buff the surface of your nails, this give the wrap more sticking power.
3) Try to avoid placing the wrap over your cuticle, the best adhesion happens when the wraps are placed on the nail bed entirely.
4) Use a quality top coat, this helps with durability as well as sealing the edges so they adhere better. We actually do not recommend a gel top coat, unless you will be curing them with a UV lamp. Our favorite top coats are Sally Hansen Hard as Nails and Orly Won't Chip. We did a test of 9 different top coats (gel included) and the 2 mentioned out performed by far the other options. Some quick dry top coats can cause the wraps to shrink, and dollar store top coats may cause bubbling of the wraps after a day or two.
If you are experiencing some difficulty with lifting, most often this is due to outside elements that can be corrected once we figure out the reason.
1) Hot water is not your friend, or at least for a few hours.
Don't soak your hands in hot water (shower, bath, dishes) for a few hours after application, letting the nails cure to your natural nail beds does take a little bit of time, even if the top coat feels completely dry.
2) Oily nailbeds.
Our nailbeds naturally produce oils to keep them healthy and well moisturized. Some of us produce more oils than others. The best advice for those with oily nail beds is use a "Sticky" or rubberized base coat. Orly has one for $6 on Amazon and it's like a miracle sauce in a bottle. One coat of this and those nails stay put for weeks! You'll love it.
3) High temperatures, Chlorine, Lotions and Sunscreens
These items can damage the finish of your wraps. And make them lift or even remove the glossy finish and become a bit tacky to the touch. An easy fix is to apply a quality top coat. This is completely protect your wraps from these items.
