    Serene, Athens and Whiteout. Don't know why but the Athens was super hard to apply and I kept shredding it :-(

    Athens is a matte finish and its either easy or hard for people to apply! They're thinner then a lot of the other wraps.

    Newbies! Really REALLY happy with these I had big probs with lifting and fraying almost immediately after my first lot the other day, getting better! No issues thus far 😊 I didn't use a file at all this time, I found it frayed and lifted the wrap. Just super sharp scissors cut close.

    Berry sparkle and fierce fuschia. Hopefully I don't suck at applying them, I cannot paint my nails so hoping these are as easy as they seem!

    It's just like playing with stickers. For adults 😉 Also, practice makes perfect, my latest are way better than my last. I like the 1,2,3 method and this time I also pulled and stretched to flatten out any bubbles before trimming the ends. No filing works for me, too.

    I think you're onto something with the no filing. Mere hours after applying my after dark, my middle fingers are starting to lift, and I think it's because of the filing. I'm going to trim both wrap and nail to get rid of the lifting, but I'm not too pleased about it. Just when I thought had a perfect application, too!

    OK... I noticed some minor lifting at the top tips of a couple of nails! Already! And I haven't done a thing with them that would cause it, no washing and have stayed away from moisturising them for at least tonight (last time I moisturised quite soon after as the alcohol swabs I'd used to prep my nails dried out my skin) but still they have started to peel back a teeny bit here and there. Sooooo, I gave them a light file. Dammit. Hopefully I'll find a perfect application method soon. Next time I'll do exactly the same but not forgo the filing all together. :/
    Maybe I'm just being too much of a perfectionist?
