NailSnaps can be applied in minutes with no mess, no toxicity, and no dry time! First, choose the width that looks right; Regular or Petite. Next, peel SQUARE side of the wrap from the sheet (that side will get filed off as excess). Stick the ROUND side near but not on your cuticle. Smooth it over your nail pressing any wrinkles or bubbles. (If you have super curvy nails, a blast of heat can help the vinyl shrink wrap to your curves.) Fold the wrap over your nail tip and use the included nail file to file off the excess length with downward strokes ONLY to prevent nail dust from getting under the wrap. The better seal you get at the tips, the longer your nail wraps will last. NailSnaps are glossy right out of the box but we recommend that add topcoat for extra stay, seal, and shine.
