Prepare your nails
To prepare your nails for the wraps, take your best base base coat and apply diligently on every nail. You can get a base coat rich in minerals and vitamins so your nails will be strengthened while underneath the wrap. Wait for the base coat to dry.
Size your nails to the wraps
From the pack, select the best fitting wraps for each of your nails. This s to ensure everything fits nicely and is not under or oversized. Preparing this will also help to cut down your manicure time once you start.
Stick them on
You are going to peel the nail wraps off the edges. Let the rounded edge of the wrap face your cuticle. You will align that rounded edge to your cuticle o make sure it fits perfectly and will not lift after application. After aligning, press down the wrap starting from the cuticle, moving towards the tip of your nails. Press down carefully and securely to avoid bubbles from forming. This step will be repeated on every nail until all ten are complete. If you are using wraps as an accent, do this only on some nails and pain the rest with the polish of your choice.
With a nail file, buff the wrap that sticks out after application to your nails. Do not use forward strokes but maintain a downward motion all the time. His will help maintain smoothness instead of resulting in jagged edges that do not look good.
Seal the wraps
Your wraps are set to go like this but top coat will help in sealing them in. select a sheer top coat that will not change the color and design of your wraps. Your wraps will stay on for longer when you do this. Add some shimmer with that top coat if you lease.
