How do I remove the nail strips?
There are 2 methods for removal:
Soak in a little bit of nail polish remover for a minute and then use a cuticle stick to break the seal at the cuticle and peal them off. -OR- Soak a little bit of nail polish remover for about a minute and rub off like nail polish.
How long will the nail strips stay on my nails?
This will depend on the type of nail strip you purchase and how you care for your nails. However, the manufacturer states that without a gel or nail polish top coat the nail strips will stay on for approximately 1 week, with polish they will likely last 1-2 weeks, and with gel they normally last until you remove them due to nail regrowth. This is why we strongly recommend using a top coat!

What is an overlay?
An overlay is a nail polish strip in which part or all of the strip is clear so you can see through it. You can wear it over another set of nail polish strips so those will show through, or you can wear it alone if you want your nail to show through. Typically, the parts of the overlay that appear white are actually clear, because you are looking through the clear strips to see the white backing of the package.
