Tip 1: Before use, clean the cuticle line neatly. This step is important, as dead skin is a main cause of premature lifting, and hair getting caught. Carefully push back the cuticles and optionally remove your cuticles by trimming with a cuticle nipper or gently buffing them away with the included file. Then, ensure the nails are clear from oils and residue by wiping down with the included prep pad.
Tip 2: Press down all around the cuticle area and entire nail surface using the included wooden stick. Then, press and smooth the entire nail surface with your finger, making sure there is no gap between Glaze and your nail. Glaze is created with thinner edges at the cuticle for a seamless transition—it is important to apply the strip with the cuticle side toward the cuticle (this is indicated on the plastic backing).
