Key Features

               Semi-cured Gel Nail Strips Featuring Trendy Designs

  • Easy application: Fool-proof, fast curing formula
  • Molded shape: Curved volume is molded to nail shape, it's thicker in the center and thinner at the cuticle for superior fit our proprietary DOME EFFECT™
  • Mega volume: Plump volume that masks imperfections for an even pro-finish.
  • Mirror shine: Rich vibrant color with light reflecting particles delivers brilliant shine.
  • Gel strong up to 14 days: Lasting shine, durable wear that's chip-proof and scratch-proof.

How to Use

STEP 1: PREP

  • Wash hands with soap and water.
  • Shape nails and push back cuticles.
  • Use enclosed Prep Pad to ensure nails are clear from oils and residue.
  • Make sure your nails are completely dry before application.

STEP 2: SELECT SIZE

  • Hold the sheet over nail to find your size. If you are in between sizes, always size down.

STEP 3: APPLY

  • Gently lift strip from sheet starting from edge.
  • Place strip over the center of your nail, starting at cuticle line and pressing outward. For optimal adhesion, the strip should be placed above the cuticle line avoiding skin or cuticles. 

STEP 4: REMOVE FILM

  • Remove the protective film.

STEP 5: PRESS

  • Press down firmly from center and side to side. 

STEP 6: TRIM

  • Trim strip flush to your nails using nail scissors or nail clippers. 

STEP 7: CURE

  • Cure under LED light for 45 seconds. 

STEP 8: FILE

  • Position the nail file horizontally along the contour of your nail. With one sweeping motion, file firmly across your free edge. Make sure GLAZE does not exceed beyond your nail length. Any overhang will cause chipping or cracking.
  • Pro Tip: Using the wooden manicure stick gently press down on glaze strip thoroughly to seal all edges before curing. This will prevent hair and debris from catching onto the nail strip perimeter. 

HOW TO REMOVE: 

STEP 1: REMOVE 

  • Apply cuticle oil on nail bed. 

STEP 2: LIFT

  • Use manicure stick to gently and slowly lift nail strip from corner of the cuticle area.
  • Gradually push the strip off your nail.
  • CAUTION: Do not peel off with force or in one quick motion.

LOVE THEM SO MUCH!!!

I am on day two of them and I am loving them so far. They truly look and feel like gel! Let's see how long they last! I did follow recommendations and did them before bedtime- it gives them extra time to seal to my nail!

Don't buy

I regularly give myself gel manicures so I know how to prep my nails. I followed the directions to a T to apply these. They looked nice. Then after curing, I went to wash a couple of dishes. Immediately after the sides began to curl up, and they popped right off. Thankfully they weren't too expensive but still a waste. I suggest learning how to do gel manicures, and investing in the right tools and products instead.

Dashing Diva

Hi Mina,

Oh no! We're very sorry to hear that happened. We do recommend avoiding exposure to water, especially prolonged exposure to water like dish washing or showering for at least an hour following application.

It's best to apply the nails right before bed when you are finished using your hands for the evening, to ensure that the nails can adhere uninterrupted. We hope this helps should you choose to give GLAZE another try!

Best,
The Dashing Diva Team
