- Waterslide nail wraps

- Nail buffer
- Nail polish remover
- UV lamp (if using UV gel polish)
Step 1: Prep Your Nails
Before you start, make sure your nails are clean and dry. Use a nail polish remover to clean the nails and let them dry completely. If you're using UV gel polish, make sure to cure the polish under a UV lamp.
Step 2: Cut the Wrap to Size
Using scissors, cut the wrap to size. Make sure the wrap fits your nail perfectly, leaving a small gap around the edges to avoid any lifting.
Step 3: Apply the Wrap
Using tweezers, pick up the wrap and place it on your nail. Make sure the wrap is centered and positioned correctly. Gently smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles.
Step 4: Seal the Wrap
Once you're happy with the placement of the wrap, seal the design with a clear topcoat. This will not only protect the wrap but also give your nails a smooth and glossy finish. If you're using UV gel polish, cure the topcoat under a UV lamp.
Step 5: File and Buffer the Edges
Finally, use a nail file to gently shape the edges of the wrap, making sure it fits perfectly around your nail. Use a nail buffer to smooth out any rough edges.
And that's it! You now know how to apply waterslide nail wraps to gel nail polish. With a little practice, you'll be creating beautiful and unique designs in no time.
