2)   Place foil art on nail and flatten well

Lightly place the sticker over nail, press and roll from one side to the other will stretch the foil sticker to flatten and adhere well over any curve nail.

Quality foil art sticker has strong adhesive back and will stick well to smooth, dry, non-tacky nail surface.  If gel surface is tacky after curing, use alcohol wipe to remove the inhibition layer before applying foil sticker over top.

Quality foil sticker is strong and durable so no need to worry about ruin art if using soft press finger or soft tissue napkin to flatten art.

Creative side trimming of large size art for interesting composition need to be done before foil sticker is pressed and flatten.
