How to Apply and Remove Nail Wraps

Application Video

Application Steps
01. Prep

Push back cuticles with cuticle stick and clean nails thoroughly with prep pad.

02. Strengthen

For optimal nail health and best results, apply base coat and let dry.

03. Select

Select a wrap slightly smaller than the width of your nail and gently peel away.

04. Apply

Apply the wrap firmly to your nail, leaving a small gap between the cuticle and the wrap.

05. Trim Excess

Fold nail wrap over the edge of your nail and gently file away excess (or trim the excess along your nail with nail clippers/scissors and smooth edges with a file).

06. Seal

Apply a non quick-dry top coat to seal and protect your new manicure.


Easy, Damage-Free Removal

Option 1: Apply oil to the flat end of the wooden cuticle stick and gently shimmy it underneath the edges to loosen the nail wrap.
Option 2: Apply nail polish remover and wipe clean.

*do not peel forcefully.


Tips and Tricks
Below are some of our most common tips and tricks. Follow along on our social media pages for more tips, or email us with any questions you have!

  1. - Our nail wraps are double ended, which allows you to get multiple uses out of each strip by cutting them in half! For best results cut them while they are on the paper backing and put the leftovers in an air tight bag for later use.
  2. - Applying a top coat after application can extend the life of your nail wraps and keep them shinier longer.
  3. - If you plan to use sunscreen, apply a top coat to protect the nail wraps from the active ingredients which can tarnish the top layer.
  4. - Avoid water and lotions for a few hours after application to allow the adhesive to set.
  5. - Always leave a small gap between the nail wrap and your cuticle. Do not allow the nail wrap to overlap with your skin.
  6. - For best results, apply the nail wraps prior to going to bed, to allow the wraps to adhere overnight.
  7. - Applying a base coat prior to application can help the nail wrap adhere to your nail because it builds a smooth, oil free surface to adhere to. Make sure the base coat is dry prior to applying the nail wraps!
  8. - If using a top coat, avoid "quick dry" and "gel setter" top coat products, as they dry too quickly and lift the nail wrap from your nails.
  9. - If you have short nails, using a file to remove the excess nail wrap may be difficult. If that is the case, use nail clippers to clip the nail wrap above the tip of your nail, and then file the remaining excess to smooth the wrap along the edge of your nail.
