How To Apply Nail Stickers – 5 Steps Guide!
Nail stickers are now a trendy nail designer thing for their easy usage process and affordability. I believe, no one cannot apply a nail sticker on their hand. But all people are not lucky to achieve the perfect application.
So, here we are to inform you how to apply nail stickers properly. You have to follow these few steps.
1. Clean and buff your nails
Before applying the nail sticker, make sure your nails have no nail polish on them. Remove nail polish (If any) with a nail polish remover. File your nail length into your desired size and buff the nail bed.
Make sure there is no sticky layer on the nails. Washing hands with hand soap and wiping the water is the best way to remove the oil from the nails.
Do not use any types of oil or lotion before applying a nail sticker. Oil obstructs to adhere to the nail stickers properly and decreases durability.
2. Choose the perfect size and prepare to apply
Find the perfect size that matches your nail best. Among the nail strips, there is a size variety. So, you have to choose the best matching size.
After finding the perfect size for the nail, take that nail sticker and then gently peel off the protective clear plastic wrapping from the top of the strip. Your nail sticker is ready to apply.
If any of the nail stickers don’t fit on your nails because of their big size, then you can trim the bigger strip and turn it into the perfect size. Do not touch the sticky side of the sticker with fingers that may prevent the glue from the sticker.
3. Apply the nail sticker
Place the sticker on your nail bed. Try to apply the sticker close to the cuticle. Mildly fit it in the right position of the nail. When the sticker is in the right position, press it with fingers to adhere it properly. Try to remove all the air bubbles from the sticker.
To make the sticker more durable, heat the sticker with a blow dryer before applying it to the nail. If the sticker gets heat, the sticky layer becomes more powerful to adhere to.
4. Cut/file away the excess part
The nail sticker is too long for nail size. So, you have to cut the excess part to fit it with the nail. Cut the extra length with a tiny scissor. Take a nail file and file downward to cut off the extra nail strip.
Use a rough file to get a satisfactory result. A less rough file may tear off the sticker on the nail part.
5. Use a top coat
Finally, apply a quality full topcoat to the nail. The top coat makes the nail strips a glossy and classy look. It increases the durability of the nail sticker. Without using a topcoat you have to be careful about the nail sticker.
Extreme heat, pressure, or moisturization can damage the nail sticker, so be careful about them and get some extra days with nail stickers. Sephora PRO team member Sara Biria says, “If the strip starts to come off, apply heat to it using a blow dryer so that you can smooth it back onto the nail bed.”
To get classy nail art without any trouble and without spending a lot of time, you have to wear a nail sticker. Nail stickers don’t damage the natural nail bed, and by taking some extra care, they can be durable for many days.
