15 Cute Nail Stickers for Your Easiest Mani-Pedi Yet

If you can’t seem to give yourself a decent manicure or pedicure, or simply get tired of your polish smudging or chipping, you may want to consider using nail strips instead. Also known as stickers, wraps and decals — these adhesive designs are easy to use, require zero drying time and come in a wide variety of colors and designs to choose from.

Nail strips are likely to last anywhere from five days to a couple of weeks and many brands make them trimmable to better fit your nails. Moreover, while it’s best to avoid getting them wet the first day you wear them, they should stay on in the shower, bath or pool after that.

How to Use Nail Polish Strips

Allow us to break down exactly how they work. The strips come in sheet form, so you peel away the design you want to use and apply it to your nail bed just like a sticker. Just be sure to select and peel the nail strip sizes that best fit your nails. For reference, you don’t want the nail strips to be touching your cuticles or any skin around your nails. To reduce the chance of air bubbles, apply pressure down the center of the strip and then move pressure toward the outer edges.

The final step can be done in two ways. You can either bend the excess nail strip material down over the nail tip and use a file to shave off the excess material or use nail clippers to trim away the material before going in with a file to smooth any excess strip down to the nail’s edge. Top brands like Sally Hansen, Dashing Diva and Tough Girls include kits that come with files as well as other handy extras like cuticle sticks to push back the skin. They come off with nail polish remover.

Here, we rounded up cute manicure and pedicure strips for simple and flawless results.
