    I just doctored mine a little bit :/ After only a couple of hours they were already starting to lift on a few fingers and I tried heating them a bit and pressing down firmly and also going over again at the tips with a file but it didn't help.. So, making my own rules to ensure they stick! I applied my own trusty top coat (not trushine, can't afford that!) and used nail glue to seal the peeling edges into place. Just a dot under the raised corner and rubbed it down. You can't tell and so far it's working. At $35 including delivery for one sheet, I'm making sure they go the distance dammit! Even if I have to get creative 😉

    Went a bit more muted this time. I love having ones that are not available, like this one is a host exclusive, but every time I go to put them on I think how I can't use them to make sales. Decided to put them on anyway! ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1451994758.746606.jpg

    My best tip is to follow the application video as closely as possible with your first application. This method works for the majority of users. If you then have issues, speak with your consultant and they can troubleshoot with you.

    I follow the Jamberry application method. I push back cuticle, alcohol wipe, heat wrap for 1, 2, 3 (not 1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi etc), apply, heat again quickly and give the end a tug, and apply the whole hand before I trim or file. That way the wraps cool entirely as they shrink a bit when they cool. I do it at night so I don't wet my nails at all for a good few hours. Then if I need to reheat any I do so I'm the morning.

    Here's my current mani

    I like the Baggie method, I find it helps me get a really good seal on the ends

    I followed the 123 method as well. Interested to check out this "baggie" method now! *off to google*

    I'm going to try this with my next lot. I also found the filing left them frayed at the ends, even though I used quite a soft buffer. I like the idea of using nail clippers instead.

    My cousin trims her wrap and bail with clippers, works well for sealing but her nails are getting shorter every manicure 😂 she's a consultant so constantly changing them up

    Lots of great tips girls! Any foolproof damage free removal? I've tried the warm coconut oil and conditioner in the shower, not much success...
    Maybe the oil isn't hot enough?
