How to apply your Layers
Always start by washing your hands carefully. It removes dirt and potential cosmetic residue. Remove any cuticle remnants from the nail bed and push back your cuticles. Let your nails dry properly to ensure that there isn’t any moisture left under the nail/cuticle.
Why is it important? Your Layers will stick better to a clean, dry, and smooth nail bed. The result will be more even, and your Layers will stay immaculate longer.
Remove the protective plastic from your sheet of Layers. Choose the right size Layer by comparing the different Layers to your nails - you want to pick a size that is as close to the size of the nail as possible. Are you between sizes? Choose the smaller of the two, and stretch it sideways across the nail bed - it gives a cleaner finish and a more durable result.
Apply the Layer to your nail, place it gently on the nail bed, start at one side, close to the cuticle, and press the Layer toward the other side. To achieve the best result, apply the Layer carefully on your nail, so it is placed on the nail bed and not on the skin, and make sure that it fits snug too, but not on your cuticle - the Layers are soft and can be stretched for maximum coverage.
Pull the Layer over the tip of the nail, almost like pulling a fitted sheet over a mattress. Use a nail/fingertip or a nail file to press the Layer around the front edge of the nail. Remove the excess by pinching it off and/or using a nail file.
MAKE IT LAST
Place your nails under the UV LED lamp, one hand at a time. Push the button and keep your nails under the UV light until the light goes out after 60 seconds. The light from the lamp hardens the material. That increases the durability of the manicure and gives the nails a glossy, lustrous finish. Make sure you place all nails under the lamp.
YOU NAILED IT
Your manicure is too good not to share with the rest of the world! Take a picture of your nails and post it on social media. Don’t forget to tag @lovenlayer, #lovenlayer, and of course #younailedit
Time to switch color or pattern? This is how you remove your old Layers. Start at the bottom by the cuticle. Slowly and carefully peel the Layer off. If you find it difficult to remove the Layer, use some nail oil underneath it and wait for a minute. Then peel it off. Wash your hands carefully with soap and water. Before putting on a fresh set of Layers, remove any cuticle remnants from the nail bed and push back your cuticles. Make sure your nails are completely dry to avoid that there is any moisture left under the nail bed or cuticle. Make sure that the nail bed is softer than it usually is.
