It should be easy to get a perfect manicure at home. See how easily you apply our Layers in five simple steps.
Step 1: PreparationAlways start by washing your hands thoroughly. It removes dirt and any remaining cosmetic products. Scrape cuticle residue from the nail bed and remove/reduce cuticles. Allow the nails to dry thoroughly, this is to avoid moisture remaining under the nail bed. Why is this important? Your Layers adhere better to a clean, dry, and smooth nail bed, the result will be smoother and your Layers will stay nice for longer.
Step 2: Open packagingYou always have our description of the five steps on the back of the package. When you open the package, our Layers are in a foil cover. Cut it open and take out the Layer map. Remember to save the foil protection and/or put back your leftover Layer map. If the packaging is open, our layers last up to 6 months if they are protected in the foil cover and are well sealed. They can otherwise harden and become difficult to apply or be destroyed completely. ATTENTION! Do not apply Layers in direct sunlight and/or heat!

Step 3: Place LayersTo attach the Layer to the nail place it on the nail bed, start attaching the layer on one side, closest to the cuticle, and press out to the corresponding side. Continue towards the tip. For best results - place the Layer carefully on your nail so that it is applied to the nail bed itself and not the skin, and that its edges are close to, but not on, your cuticle - our Layers are stretchy and can be stretched for optimal coverage.
Step 4: Adjust lengthPull the Layer over the tip - it's a bit like pulling a sheet over a mattress. Use a nail/fingertip or the tip of the nail file to firmly press the Layer around the front edge of the nail. Remove the excess by “pinching” it off and/or using a nail file.
Step 5: Fix with UV LED lampYou can use Layers just as is, but for best durability, the UV LED lamp is recommended. Place your nails under the UV LED lamp, one hand at a time. Press the upper part of the lamp and keep your hand until the lamp goes out. The lamp causes the material to harden, which both increases the durability of the manicure and gives the nails a beautiful shine. Remember that all nails must go under the lamp.
