HOW TO APPLY #PBWRAPS LIKE A PRO

We reimagined DIY nail care so that babes across the nation could have access to our obsessed-about nail art while at home. Here are all of the tips and tricks to prepping your nails, applying our wraps and removing them safely. Now lets get wrapping, you talented artist, you.

How to apply

Step 1
Clean & Clear

Wash hands with soap and water to remove dirt and oil.

PB Pro Tips
  • Wipe your nails with alcohol or acetone for extra staying power.
  • More oil means less staying power.
  • Avoid lotions prior to your pamper.

Step 2
Place & Press

Peel and place nail wrap 1mm below the cuticle

PB Pro Tips
  • Use a wooden cuticle stick to gently push back cuticles and smooth out your wrap.
  • Make sure the wrap isn't touching your skin! It’s better to size down when placing you wrap and stretching it to fit vs going too big.
  • Make sure the edges are really pressed down and have fully adhered to your natural nail.

Step 3
Fold & File

Fold nail wrap over the edge of the nail and file away excess.

PB Pro Tips
  • Avoid filing on top of the nail wrap, focus on filing underneath the free edge of the nail.
  • Filing too straight on vs underneath the nail can cause some of the design to be buffered away.

Step 4
Top or Not

For extra staying power, add a top coat (or you can go leave it bare).

PB Pro Tips
  • Try to avoid a quick-dry top coat. It can cause the wrap to shrink.
  • We can apply gel at our shop for even longer wear.
  • Top coat adds extra protection.

Nail Wrap FAQ

Our nail wraps last anywhere from 7-10 days. If applied with gel, our nail wraps can last about two weeks.

You can select your wrap size by placing the full sheet of wraps over your nails (with the curved end up towards your cuticle). The right fit will cover your natural nail but will not touch your skin. We suggest using a wrap slightly smaller than your nail, then gently stretching it so that it lies completely flat on your nail with no air bubbles or lifting.

If some nail wraps don't fit your nails perfectly, you should size down and then gently stretch the wrap to perfectly fit your nail. We recommend using a wrap that is slightly smaller than your nail to avoid the wrap touching skin or cuticles. Using a wrap that is too large and ultimately touches your skin, will cause lifting at the edges.

Yes. Our nail wraps are waterproof if they are applied correctly. You do not have to apply a base coat but applying a top coat will make the wraps last longer and protect from any oils or dirt getting underneath the wraps.
