How To Use Nail Stencils Like A Pro


  1. Using tweezers, accurately peel the stencils off the sheet. Stick your stencils on your nail making sure at he sticky side is the side facing down.
  2. To prevent bleeding of nail polish near the edges, press the stencil with your tweezers along the edge.
  3. Apply your second color over the stencil. Only put on one coat. If the polish is too thick, the stencils will come off messy. Use a makeup sponge for best results - paint polish onto a sponge and dab onto your nail.
  4. Immediately after you have applied your second color, peel off the stencil using tweezers.
  5. Wait 3 - 5 minutes for your second color to dry and add a top coat.

*If the base coat is not completely dry before applying nail stencils, the adhesive on the back will tear off your base coat.

Expert Tip: To speed up the drying process in step 1, apply a thin layer of a quick drying top coat. This also helps to double protect the base from the adhesive - guaranteed no tearing off.
