Nail wraps can be made of either vinyl or nail polish. Typically strips that are made of vinyl and an adhesive base are called nail wraps whereas nail polish strips and made of mostly (if not 100%) nail polish without adhesive.
Apply a thick layer of clear nail polish or topcoat to your nail, then position the paper wrap and press it into the polish. Hold it there for a few seconds until it starts to set. Don’t worry if the polish starts to seep through the paper – that’s good! The paper will adhere better to your nail.
Generally Do nail wraps damage nails? The wraps themselves aren’t damaging your nails – however, not removing them properly may cause damage.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)
Are nail wraps worth it?
Nail wraps are good for those who like nail art and are looking for a DIY option to either save money or because they don’t want to venture out to a salon. You may be lucky enough to get your nail wraps to last for up to one full week with a top coat applied. The good news is they do stay shiny.
What is the difference between nail wraps and nail strips?
Nail technicians would layer them over the natural nail, apply glue, a resin, and/or nail polish, and shape the nail. A nail wrap provides for a softer and more bendable nail surface that isn’t quite as thick as acrylic and is generally healthier for the nail. It’s also quite a bit more comfortable to wear.

What can I use as a nail polish barrier?
First, use a cotton swab to rub petroleum jelly (like Vaseline) on your cuticles and the skin around your nails to create a barrier between the polish and your skin. After you’ve painted your nails, you can wipe off the petroleum jelly and any polish mistakes along with it.
What can you put on your skin so nail polish doesn’t stick?
Before you start painting, line your cuticles with a Q-tip dipped in Vaseline to prevent polish from sticking, as beauty guru Michelle Phan demonstrates on her blog. The Vaseline creates a barrier between your nail and skin so you can wipe away mistakes when you’re finished.
