What are STARLIT Nail Polish 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.
Are all your Nail Strips 100% real nail polish?
The only exception is our Everyday Range of nail strips - these are a gel and vinyl blend.
How long do STARLIT Nail Polish Strips last?
We thoroughly test all our Nail Polish 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 or gel top coat 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 using Essie Gel Setter top coat.
Can I use these on my Acrylic/SNS/Gel nails?
As our Strips are 100% nail polish, they can be used on all nail types.
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.
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!
Can STARLIT Nail Polish Strips be used on children?
They are considered a cosmetic product and although they are non toxic, parents should exercise caution in determining whether their child is old enough to not accidentally swallow or consume any part of the Strip.

What are semi-cured gel nails?
Semi-cured gel nails are the latest technology in the nail industry. Starlit Gels are cured to 60% and are soft and pliable and so easy to apply. Now you can have beautiful salon quality gel manicures in minutes, without having to change out of your pj’s! Created with convenience in mind to give you the perfect manicure every time, without the expense and inconvenience of going to the salon.
Will Starlit Gels fit me?
Yes! Each Starlit Gels kit comes with 20 nail wraps of varying sizes. Simply choose the ones that suit your nails. If you’re unsure which size is best for you, it’s always better to size down.
How do I apply Starlit Gels?
It's easier than you think!
Step 1: Prep
Shape your nails and push back cuticles. Clean your nails with the included alcohol wipes.
Step 2: Select
Choose a suitable size gel wrap and apply carefully to your nail, applying pressure while smoothing on to your nails. Take care not to apply the wraps onto cuticles or skin. Press down the edges with the included rubber cuticle pusher.
Step 3: Trim
Use scissors, nail clippers or a file to remove the excess.
Step 4: Cure
Cure under UV/LED lamp for 60 seconds & Done!
Some people find it easier to trim the wraps at step 3 and then to file off any excess gel wraps after curing.
Optional: Apply a layer of gel top coat for extra shine and lasting power.
Still not exactly sure? Check out our Application Page for more details here.
How do I remove Starlit Gels?
It’s simple! Use the wooden cuticle stick dipped in coconut oil or olive oil and simply lift the nail wraps off, while working the oil underneath the gels, to loosen the adhesive. If there is any sticky residue left over, then wipe with an alcohol wipe or nail Polish remover. There you go! Super quick, damage free removal - unlike removal of traditional salon gel manicures.
How long do Starlit Gels last?
As with any manicure, lasting power depends on many factors, including nail prep, application and your lifestyle. Some of us are totally guilty of using our nails like tools! With correct application and care, Starlit Gels can last up to 2 weeks (and sometimes even longer!), just like salon-quality gel nails.
Why do I have to use a UV lamp?
Starlit Gel nail wraps are 60% cured and are soft and stretchy so that they can mold your nail shape easily. Once applied, they need to be cured under a UV lamp for 60 seconds to fully cure and harden.
The Starlit Gels UV Lamp has been tried and tested and is the ideal lamp for Starlit Gels nail wraps. It can be purchased here
How do I store my Starlit Gels?
To prevent hardening of your Starlit Gels, store unopened in their original packaging, in a cool dry place away from light and heat exposure.
Once opened, reseal any leftovers back in the black packaging and seal with the included silver foil sticker.
Are Starlit Gels safe to use?
Yes! They are 100% safe, non-toxic and comply with European beauty standards.
Will Starlit Gels damage my nails?
Abslutely not! Unlike normal Gels, Starlit Gels will not weaken or damage your nails once removed.
They adhere to your nails using a medical adhesive that is strong and durable, but also safe.
How are these different to Starlit Nail Polish Strips?
Starlit Nail Polish Strips are made from 100% real nail polish, cured to 95% and stored in a foil package to keep them in that state until application.
They do not require any further curing (eg: Lamp) or dry time.
Nail Polish Strips are great for those who like to change their mani's often.
Semi-Cured Gels are better suited to those who prefer a longer lasting, more durable mani.
Do Starlit Gels contain HEMA?
No! Many Gel products contain an engredient called HEMA (Hydroxyethel Methacrylathe) which may cause sensitivity.
We are proud to say that Starlit Gels no longer includes this ingredient.
What are the ingredients of Starlit Gels?
If sensitivity occures, stop use immediately.
