Heard about nail wraps? They’re a fun, easy way to create a super-glossy nail colour or a mani with an intricate design or pattern in a few minutes flat. Kangol sent us a pack of their new Kangol Xtras Hot Tip designer nail wraps, R49, the other day. They’re ‘100% shiny’, and have ‘zero drying time’ and ‘smudging’.
To apply them, it’s all too easy really. Simply slide them out of the pack and select a wrap that’s sized to suit your nail.
Place the rounded end at the top of your nail, just beneath your cuticle.
Smooth it onto the nail surface and remove the surplus by folding the wrap underneath the tip of your nail before carefully tearing it away.
Just like that you’ve got a gorgeous zebra mani that looks as though you’ve spent hours with a nail art pen to get it!
Kangol claim that your newly wrapped nails should last for seven days, but that’s stretching it a little. If you’re extra careful with your hands, you could get a good two days worth of wear, but the moment you decide to do the dishes without gloves or attempt to open a can o’ Coke Lite, your mani could be dunzo. Still, it’s a great way to spice up your look for a special occasion.
