How long do the nail foils from Nailsome last?
The durability may vary depending on your nail structure, the base and top coat used and your daily routine.
With proper application, our nail wraps usually last up to 15 days.
If you have a naturally smooth/shiny/oily nail surface, polishing your nail surface before application will help the nail wraps adhere better.
If you intend to wear them longer than 10 days, apply a layer of base coat to protect your nail from moisture seeping under the nail wrap over time.
Do the nail wraps fit my nail shape well?
Each package contains 2x16 nail strips in different sizes to ensure it fits any nail size.
The nail foils can also be easily cut on the sides for narrow nails.
Are the nail foils reusable?
No, they are not. Our nail foils are designed for single use.
If you want a longer wear time, try adding a layer of top coat!
How can I make the most of each pack?
If you keep your nails short, you can cut the nail foils in half and use one strip for 2 nails!
For the nail foils that are too wide, you can also shorten the width. Tip: Use the desired size as a template when cutting the width.

It's not mandatory, but using a base coat provides a protective layer between your nails and the nail wrap.
If you have a naturally greasy or uneven nail surface, a coat of base coat can help nail foils adhere better to your nails.
We find that it makes no difference which base coat you use.
If you intend to wear the nail foils longer than 10 days, you should apply a layer of base coat to protect your nail from moisture that seeps under the nail foils over time.

Our nail foils are usually applied to bare nails, but they can also be applied over shellac, acrylic, gel or nail foils.
We have a range of transparent overlay nail foils that are great for layering!
Can I take a shower directly after the application?
We recommend applying the nail foils after showering, as the nail foil needs time to fully adhere to your nails.
