We intorduce the new standard for nail care lovers by offering semi cured nail gel stickers. We constantly change, listen to our customers and tap into the newest/ latest nail art trends. This we do to develop and create the high quality tools, with a wide range of solid colors and prints.
What are the nail gel stickers made of?
Gel nail polish
What is the difference between semi cured gel nail stickers or regular nail stickers?
Gimeaus' gel nail stickers are upgraded with third generation technology and made of real gel nail polish. This includes a base adhesive, gel nail polish layer with solid colors, art design, and glossy glaze as a top layer.
Will these gel nail stickers damage my natural nail?
No, you will not receive damaged nails from our gel nail stickers, if you remove with the Gimeau liquid serum
What should I do before applying these nail strips to my nails?
Please wash your hands with soap and water, shape the nails with the file and push back the cuticles with the wooden stick. Use the prep pad (alcohol apd) to remove remaing residue. Let it dry, before applying the gel nail stickers.
Do I need the UV LED lamp?
yes, we advise to use Gimeau's UV-led lamp since the gel nail stickers are 60% cured. If you apply these direct on your nails, the gel nail stickers will 100% cured under the UV-led lamp. 60 sec.
How should I apply the gel nail sticker?
This will be applied in a few steps and in no-time you have an 'I just came out of the nail salon look'. Shape, clean, stick, press, trim and cured with LED Lamp for 60 seconds. Please learn more with our video tutorial on the 'How To Use' page.
How long does the Gimeau gel sticker last on your nails?
These gel nail stickers should last at least for 14 days, when using our 'how to apply' guide and take step-by-step.
How do I know the gel nail stickers will fit my nails?
These gel nail stickers will come in a package of 20 nails of various sizes toe ensure that it will fit any nail size. These nails are very little flexible - so option will be to resize them before applying them on the nails. Please use a smaller sticker then your nails, to make sure will keep some space between the sticker and your nailcuticle
How do I store them?
Sore them in the original bag and use a sticker to seal the gel nail stickers. Make sure you hide the gel nail stickers from light or they can cure under the sun-/ roomlight overtime.
Why does my hair keep getting stuck under the strips?
Gimeau nailstickers are designed with a domed curve intended to mimic painted gel and prevent this issue, however proper application is key. When applying, try to leave a little bit of space at the cuticle, and use a top coat to help seal down the cuticle edge. It’s very important to press down the sides with the wood stick extremely well before curing. You can also use the warmth of your fingertips to press them down and try to get a better seal. If using a top coat, avoid flooding the cuticles as this can also cause hair to get caught when the cuticle edge of the top coat begins to separate from the skin.
Why are my strips lifting on the sides/cuticle?
1. Nailbeds weren’t properly prepped/cleaned prior to application. Ensure the nailbeds are completely clean and dry by using the provided alcohol pad. Make sure any old polish or acrylic residues are fully removed. Trim excess dead skin and push back cuticles.
2. Fingers lifting the strips from the plastic sheet weren’t cleaned/too oily and broke down the adhesive .Use the provided alcohol pad on the finger pads as well as the nails.
3. Stickers may have been handled too much or over-stretched, causing a breakdown of the adhesive.Try to warm the stickers in the plastic before removing them if you plan to stretch them, to make them more pliable.
4. Nailbeds are naturally very oily, preventing good adhesion of the strip. (This is more likely if you have oily/combination skin.)Try using a nail dehydrator product to strip those excess oils out of your nailbeds prior to application.
5. Strips were applied overlapping skin or too close to the cuticle.Try to leave a tiny gap at the cuticle and make sure the strip isn’t touching any skin on the sides.
6. Acetone was applied to the edges, getting under the strip and breaking down the adhesive. Acetone can cause damage to the adhesive.
7. Cuticle oil was used to push the cuticles back, but not all oil was removed prior to application. Wash hands thoroughly in warm soapy water to remove all oil residue, and dry thoroughly. Oils prevent adhesion of the strips to the nail bed, so it’s best to avoid using cuticle oils until after application is complete.
8. A non-UV/non-gel top coat was used over the nail strips. Many brands misleadingly label their top coats as "gel" even though they aren't. Only use gel top coats that require curing under an LED or UV Lamp.
9. Strips were applied outdoors in hot/sunny weather. Apply your strips indoors where you are not in direct sunlight which can cause strips to prematurely harden and become inflexible, or buildup of sweat and oils on the nailbed can repel the adhesive on application.
Why are my strips already popping off when I just put them on?
1. The strips were exposed to sustained water exposure shortly after application. Avoid bathing, swimming, pot scrubbing, or other activities requiring sustained water exposure for a minimum of 12 hours after application.
2. Using a lot of topcoat,will make the sticker heavier.
3. Space between sticker and nail cuticle. Please make sure you keep a space between the cuticle by using a smaller sticker than your your nails.
