NCLA nail wraps are so easy , because not only do they come with plenty of wraps (in case you mess up) but they also include a full size nail file, and complete instructions. The only thing else you need is some clear nail polish!

1.Paint your nails with clear nail polish and let it dry completely.

2. Choose the right size nail wrap for one nail at a time and apply. (I found I needed to step up one size for most of my nails, and you can sort of stretch the width of each nail wrap before applying, if you need to.) Start at the cuticle and smooth over your nail, working out any bubbles. Use the nail file to file off the excess tip, using gentle downward motions.

3. Finish with one or two more coats of clear polish. Let it dry, and you’re done!
