Just peel, stick and GO! No heat, puckering or extra tools needed! They are already dry! Most people get 10-14 days wear out of a manicure and over 30 days for a pedicure!

Here are some tips and tricks to get the most out of your nail polish strips:

  1. Wash hands with Dawn dish soap to get rid of oils on hands 

  2. Push back cuticles and make sure the nail polish is applied to nails and not the cuticle

  3. Buff tops of nails if you are prone to lifting with acrylics or gels

  4. If you use your thumb as your “tool” to remove excess, be sure to do your thumb last

  5. Don't apply to cold hands - warm the strips and your hands up before application - this will make them more malleable and stick better

  6. For extra protection apply a clear top coat such as Sally Hansen Miracle, No Light Gel

  7. Smooth down polish strips with a silicon cuticle pusher to remove wrinkles of solids.

  8. Trim or file down nails AFTER application

  9. For best curing process put them on at night before bed 

  10. Do NOT wash hands, take a shower or get hands wet for up to an hour after application

Are you prone to peeling or brittle nails? Prior to applying nail polish strips, you can use products like Nail Tek to protect your nails.

Use a non-acetone nail polish remover when possible. This brand is gentle, yet effective and is available at major retail stores and online. 

If you use acetone to remove glitter strips, make sure you moisturize your nails after with a good quality cuticle oil.
