Below is a list of commonly asked questions:
1. What are Nail Strips?
Our Nail Strips are 100% real nail polish, that can be easily applied within minutes. No heat or drying time is required. Each Strip has base, colour and topcoat all in one! They are 95% dry and sealed in a foil package, keeping it in that state until you are ready to apply your manicure.
Once opened, we have had luck using the Strips weeks later providing they are immediately resealed back into the foil package and kept in a zip lock bag or by very carefully using hair irons or a heat sealer to seal the foil package.
2. Are all your Nail Strips 100% real nail polish?
The only exception is our brand new Everyday Range of nail strips - these are a gel and vinyl blend.
3. How long do the nail strips last?
We thoroughly test all our Strips and find that they last between 7 - 14 days depending on how hard you are on your hands and nails. To get the most out of your strips; we recommend applying a top coat, gel top coat or Clear Nail Strip to prolong their life.
Note: Some top coats do not react well to Strips, so always test it on ONE nail and wait to see that it does not cause any cracking/peeling or lifting before applying to the rest of your manicure.
We recommend Sally Hanson’s miracle gel top coat (no uv light needed)
4. Can I use these on my Acrylic/SNS/Gel nails?
Yes! As our Strips are 100% nail polish, they can be used on all nail types.
5. Is heat or drying time required?
No, none at all. Thats why we love them so much. They do need up to a few hours to be completely set to the nail, but they are completely dry to the touch straight out of the packaging and will never smear or smudge.
6.How do I remove them?
As they are made from nail polish, they are easily removed using nail polish remover.
Never pull the nail wraps straight off the nail. If you have weakened nails, they are best removed by lifting the edge of the nail wrap and working coconut oil or olive oil under the wraps to loosen the adhesive.
There are a couple of different removal methods that we recommend. One is to use your thumb nail/cuticle stick to break the seal on the edge of the nail strip and then you can use a cuticle pusher/small make up brush to work nail polish remover or coconut oil under the nail strip. This will loosen the adhesive quickly.
Another way is to put a capful of nail polish remover into a ziplock bag. Put one hand into the bag and place it into a bowl of warm water for around 2 minutes and they should come right off!
