- The nail polish strip will settle after about 15 minutes. Avoid washing your hands or moisturizing immediately after placing them.
- Do not use if you are allergic to any of the components of the nail polish wraps.
- Use a good quality base coat and top coat! Be sure let the base coat completely dry before putting a nail strip on. Allow the nail polish strips 15 minutes to settle prior to applying a top coat. For top coats, test out a small area of the nails first and allow it to completely dry before touching. Some quick dry top coats are not compatible with our nail wraps and may cause shrinkage.
- Avoid touching the adhesive side of the nail wraps as that will weaken the seal and make your nail wraps not last as long.
- You can wipe your nail with an alcohol swab after washing your hands to remove any oil, dirt or debris. This will help the nail wrap stick better.
- Remove nail wraps after 10 days.
- COLD WEATHER TIPS: If nail strips are too cold, they may peel or not stick properly. Make sure they are ROOM TEMP, and your hands are warm before applying them. You can warm the nail strips up with a hair blow dryer or place in your back pocket. Don’t leave your nail strips in the cold car or mailbox overnight
- There are a few ways to remove our nail wraps. However, one way you should not remove them is by picking or forcing them off. Just like nail polish, acrylic nails, or silk wraps, forcing the wrap off is not healthy for your nails. The following are recommendations on how to remove our nail wraps.
TRADITIONAL ACETONE OR NON-ACETONE NAIL POLISH REMOVER.
- Gently lift a tiny area of the nail wrap near the base of the nail and along side edges to break the seal. Wrap your nails with a cotton ball soaked in nail polish remover (or use nail clips) and allow it a few minutes to dissolve the adhesive and polish. Gently rub off the nail wraps. Using non-acetone nail polish remover, and also use of glitter nail wraps may take a little bit more time to dissolve.
WARM COCONUT OIL
- Microwave some coconut oil (or any of your favorite smelling oil) so it is just a tad bit warm. Be careful not to overheat or burn yourself. Gently lift a tiny area of the nail wrap along the base of the nail and along side edges to break the seal. Dip your fingertips in the warm oil it and let it soak for a few minutes. Gently slide the nail wraps off starting at the base where you previously lifted. At the same time, use your other fingers to work the oil along the peeled edge of the nail wrap. The coconut oil helps to dissolve the adhesive on the nail wrap, allowing the nail wraps to come off and at the same time moisturizes your cuticles and nails.
