You may think that nail wraps have to be really expensive and professionally applied but thats where these ingenious DIY kits come in handy; they're neither expensive or tricky to apply. First of all you need to make sure that your nails have been cleaned throughly with acetone to remove any oil or execss nail polish. Then you need to buff your nails to makesure that any ridges are removed, this will make sure that the nail wrap goes on smoothly and you don't have any snags. Just think smooth and dry!
If you are going to do the same design as me mixing the wraps with nail polish you will need to put as base coat on.
Taking your sheet of nail wraps you need to match up the right sizes to your nails. You can see that I only applied a couple of nail wraps to each hand so it was important for me to do this if you are applying wraps to all your nails then you can work out the correct ones. Carefully peel off the nail wrap and stick onto the nail with the curved end at the cuticle. Then smooth the wrap over the nail.
Taking a nail file, file the excess nail wrap off by filing the end of the wrap in a downward motion. The nail wrap will come away leaving you with a smooth edge along your nail. You wont need to use a top coat on the nail wrap.
For this mixture of wraps and nail polish I just combined a holographic nail polish and a really nice pink from OPI. ( Holographic nail polish is often expensive but this one by GOSH is a real bargin from Superdrug! )
