How do I use nail foil correctly?
You can’t do much wrong with nail foils and the application itself is self-explanatory. Of course, we are still happy to provide you with step-by-step instructions for the first use:
- Step 1: Shape your nails into the right shape. It doesn’t matter whether it’s round, oval, square or pointed. The foils can be used on any nail shape.
- Step: Once the nails are formed, the next step is cleaning the nail. To do this, wash your hands with soap and use nail polish remover on your nails to wipe any oil off them so the foil can stick better.
- Step: Now it’s time to glue. Cut the nail foil according to your nail bed and put the sticky side on your nail. Now gently press the foil onto the nail.
- Step 1: Cut off the overhanging foil and file it vertically with a glass nail file so that the foil nestles against your nail.

How do I remove the nail foil from my nails?
Nail wraps are easy to remove. You only need one for that acetone-free nail polish remover and cotton pads. Put the remover on the pads, and then wrap them one by one around your nails. Let it work for a few minutes and then remove any residue with the cotton pads.
As an alternative, you can also do one beforehand Peel off base coat use, which allows you to simply peel off the foils to remove them later. But walk both steps cautious beforehand, so that the nails are not overly strained.
Is nail foil harmful to my nails?
That depends entirely on the nail, how it reacts to the foil. If your nails are rather brittle, soft and sensitive, we recommend a base coat, which you can use to protect your nails from the glue. It is too aggressive for some nail types. Base coats have the advantage that they not only protect the nail from strong color pigments like red nail polish, but also the nail strengthen can through appropriate ingredients. For example, a good choice is the Micro Cell Nail Repair 2000which restores the protein molecules in the horny layer and thus makes the nails more resistant.
