OTHER TIPS AND TRICKS!
Should I avoid any products while wearing these?
Some products tend to dissolve the polish. A nice top coat will help protect the finish. We have found that many sunscreen lotions will cause the polish to break down. When in doubt, test a small sample prior to application. Fortunately, this isn't really the "norm" and most find they can use any products without them affecting their nails.
We also recommend waiting at least 8-12 hours before immersing or soaking your hands in hot water. The adhesive needs some time to fully set up and the heat from the water may impede the process. Once they are set, you are good to go!
It is always a good idea to wear gloves when working with chemicals or extremely hot water.
Removing the clear plastic film

- If you are having trouble removing the film, Place your strips in a cool environment such as a refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes.
- Use an orange stick or the end of your soft tipped cuticle pusher to help you lift the film and strip off the backing
