How to Apply Appliq Nail Polish Strips

How to Apply Appliq Nail Polish Strips

Recently, Nail It!’s Beauty Director Karie Frost collaborated with Appliq to create six polish strips – each with kaleidoscopic patterns made of tiny pictures of nail polish bottles. They only require a few minutes to apply and there’s no dry time. Here’s how to use them:

  • Step 1

    Each set comes with polish strips in a bunch of different sizes. Start by matching each nail up with a polish strip that's the appropriate size.

    SLIDE 1 OF 3
  • Step 2

    Peel the polish strip off the backing by the silver tab. Center it on your nail and lay the rounded edge against your cuticle, leaving a small gap.  Smooth the wrap onto your nail, stretching gently to fit. Rub firmly with a cuticle stick to remove wrinkles and air bubbles. Pull the silver tab down over your nail tip to detach the excess material. File excess in a downward motion.

    SLIDE 2 OF 3
  • Step 3

    Repeat with each nail and you're done!
