You don’t need to see a nail technician to apply nail wraps because you can do them easily by yourself and it will only take a little bit of practice. The first step in applying these is to make sure you apply them on clean nails without any trace of nail polish residue. It’s also best to file and buff your nails. Apply the nail wrap and place them securely on your nail and then heat it with your hairdryer. File off the excess wrap and there you have it. Although it may take a few tries to get it perfect, heating them thoroughly is the secret for your wraps to last long and stay intact.
