Nail Polish Wrap Application, Tips & Tricks
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!
My absolute favorite top coat is the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Shiny - if you want to extend your manicure, you can apply this right on top of your nail polish strips. *Don't forget to cap your nail tips.
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.
Use cuticle oil to help protect your cuticles and keep your nails healthy
Dip Powder Application, Tips & Tricks
If you use acetone to remove glitter strips, make sure you moisturize your nails after with a good quality cuticle oil.
*Don't forget to shake or stir your powder!
File off shiny layer
Soak nails in acetone for 10 minutes
Wipe nails with a paper towel and gently file to remove dip powder
Repeat process until they are removed
*Remove as much of the shiny layer prior to soaking in acetone as possible to reduce soak time
*100% acetone is most effective to remove the dip layers. Anything less will not remove or will take forever
Here are some tips and tricks to get the most out of your dip powders and kits:
Always store your dip liquids upright and out of direct sunlight
Use cuticle oil or acetone around the threading of your base and top coat liquids to prevent lid freezing
Shake or stir your powder jar before use - glitter can settle to the top or bottom
Always use a cutcile stick to clean around your cuticle area immediately after dipping
Use a baggie over your finger to press down glitter after dipping - this will prevent crazy glitter (glitter pieces sticking up everywhere)
