How to Apply Gel Wraps For NailsHow to Apply Gel Wraps For Nails

If you’ve ever sat through the low-key trauma of showing up at work or an event with a missing nail (or just want to skip the drying and curing process), then consider gel wraps for nails. They’re a less high-maintenance option than traditional press ons and don’t require a UV light to set. Plus, the best nail wraps are made without harmful chemicals and can be used over natural nails—no soaking or damaging manicure techniques required.

Say Goodbye to Chips: Exploring Gel Wraps for Nails

While most nail polishes require a UV or LED light to cure, and they can be a bit messy and difficult to remove, the best gel nail wraps can be applied and removed in minutes. They’re also a healthier alternative for your nails, and a single sheet can last months of manicures.

The easiest way to apply a gel wrap is by ensuring your nails are clean and dry before applying them. This will help them adhere to your nails and prevent any peeling or cracking. You’ll also want to avoid hand cream for the hour or so after applying your nails as this can interfere with how well they stick.

Aside from prepping your nails, all you need to do is pick out the right size wraps for your nails and place them on one by one. You’ll then need to smooth them down over your nails and gently press them to ensure there are no air bubbles. Once your nails are fully covered, you’ll need to use a wood stick to gently peel off the wrap.
