Apply Jamberry wraps over clean, dry nails or painted nails. They stick faster to polished nails, so if you think you need to make adjustments, no polish. To apply the nail wrap follow the steps below. (Experience has taught that this is the best method).
- Assemble hair dryer, sheet of Jamberry nails, polish (optional), a file, nail scissors and nail clippers.
- Clean and dry your nails.
- find the wrap that best fits your nail size. When in doubt, choose a slightly smaller wrap rather than a larger one.
- Cut the decal in half and use a hair dryer to blast heat on the sticky side for 3 to 5 seconds. You’ll feel it start to soften.
- Apply the sticker to the nail as close to the nail bed as possible.
- Press down at the base of the nail and as you maintain pressure there, slightly stretch the sticker over the top edge of the nail.
- Trim the excess off with nail scissors, then use a nail file to file in a downward direction to make sure the Jamberry nail is exactly flush with the edge of your nail.
- Use a cuticle stick or your own fingers to push out any bubbles or wrinkles while you heat them a second time with your hair dryer.
This method will help your Jamberry Nails stick much better without bubbles.
