Nail Polish Tips

How Can I Make My Nail Polish Strips Stick Better?

Written by Tara

Peel the backing off of the strip and place it on your nail bed as close to the cuticle as possible. Smooth it down against the nail, from the bed to the tip. For extra staying power, rub the strip between your fingers before you apply it, to heat up the lacquer and make it more flexible.

Apply 2 coats of a top coat (or gel/shellac top coat) over the entire nail and the stickers to seal and protect stickers. This will also make your manicure last longer and smooth out the edges of the stickers.

Generally Can you put a top coat over nail polish strips? 6. The strips already have a top coat on them, but some of them are shinier than others. If you love that gel look, apply a quick drying top coat on top like Poshe to give it a nice glossy look. Wrapping the top coat over the tips of the nails will also give it a longer time before you see tip wear.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Why are my color Street nails peeling off?

But if your healthy nails start peeling after using color street then it’s probably because you used a remover with acetone in it. It is the acetone in the remover and not the polish strips that make nails dry out, split and peel. Switch to an acetone-free remover and you should start to see an improvement.

Can you put clear polish over nail strips?

The nail polish strips are 100% real polish. They contain base coat, color and top coat all in one strip. You don’t need other nail products when using Color Street, but it won’t affect the product if you want to use a clear coat on top or a nail strengthener underneath.

How long do nail decals last?

Nail stickers might possibly be the easiest way to spice up a set of nails, but not so much if they don’t last. Here are my tips and tricks to get those damn stickers to STICK and stay there for up to 3 weeks. Before any application, always make sure nails are prepped for the nail gods.

Should you put a top coat over nail wraps?

We definitely recommend using a topcoat to seal the deal and make your nail wraps last even longer, but we’ve found it is actually more effective a few hours after application.

How do I keep my color street from shrinking?

The best way to help prevent the cracking is to layer, layer, layer. You can double up on the same color by using the other side of the strip, apply a different color, or even a clear overlay like this one. You don’t even HAVE to use Color Street.

How long do color Street nail strips last?
