1. Understanding Nail Wraps:
Nail wraps are adhesive sheets—often made of vinyl, gel, or nail polish materials—that stick onto the nails, presenting an array of designs and hues.
2. Evidenced Benefits of Nail Wraps:
Instant Gratification: An article from BYRDIE showed that nail wraps provide immediate results, eliminating waiting times associated with traditional nail polish drying.

Safety First: Leading brands like our nail wraps in the market prioritize non-toxic ingredients, ensuring minimal chemical exposure.
3. The Application Procedure:
a. Nails' Preparation: Cleanliness is paramount. Always start with dry, clean nails. Gentle cuticle push-backs and slight nail buffing ensure an even surface.
b. Size Matters: Select a wrap that aligns best with each nail's size.
c. Placement: After peeling its backing, firmly position the wrap, ensuring no bubbles are trapped.
d. Trim and Refine: Excess wrap should be snipped off, followed by a precise file-down.
e. Longevity Booster: A clear top coat ensures the wrap's extended stay.
4. Expert Application Advice:
-Water Woes: Post-application, an hour-long water avoidance aids in impeccable adhesion, as suggested by a you tube video from Melissa Maker, influencer and entrepreneur
