Here’s a direction guide and video(s), featuring Purdy Dita’s nails & a quick Halloween set, showing you how to apply the nail strips. Please click on the photo for a larger image. Before I started recording, I did file my nails and fix my cuticles. After washing my hands I made sure to swab them with an alcohol wipe. This allows the strip to bond to your nail better. It clears the oils from the nails for the time being. After sizing and applying the strip to the nail, I cut mine so I may use it on the same sized nail on the other hand. You may simply file away the rest if your nails are longer than mine. Swabbing your polished nail before applying your top coat may also help it adhere. Enjoy the five minutes of peaceful music! Or the minute and a half of a quick tutorial!
