How to Maintain Jamberry Nail Wraps

This page is all about maintaining your wraps to keep them looking fabulous. Since you've taken the time to properly prep your nails and apply your wraps, you'll want to wear them as long as possible (or until you are ready to change them). Knowing how to do little touch ups can save your manicure.   

When I started applying wraps, my tips would lift and I could not get rid of bubbles. But, after a bit of experimentation, I figured out how to fix them so they last longer. 

I've taken the guesswork out of this seemingly complicated process for you by creating videos and a step-by-step guide with pictures to help you get it right.   

Watch the videos and follow the step-by-step guide the next time you need to maintain your wraps. Remember to get your free Simple Steps Guide. Need more wraps, click HERE.

1. Use soap to clean hands instead of sanitizers

Use a mild soap and water to cleanse hands instead of hand sanitizers which can dry skin and may contain triclosans, parabens, or other chemicals. Remember to make bubbles with the soap for 20 seconds to get your hands thoroughly clean.

2. Reheat and apply pressure

The easiest way to maintain your wraps if you are getting bubbles or puckering on the edges is to reheat and press them again. Depending on the condition of your wraps, reactivating the adhesive is sometimes all that’s needed. Applying heated pressure works best

The best tool for this is a hair straightener; it heats itself and can be directly applied to the wrap. Be sure to safely maintain appropriate heat by turning it on for a few seconds then turning it OFF before pressing onto the wraps.

You could also heat a tool, such as tweezers or spoon pusher, then press that directly onto your wraps.

 

3. Clip the Free Edge with Nail Clippers and Refile

If your tips are wearing, you can clip the free edge with nail clippers then refile (making sure to leave a small sliver of bare nail). Remember that glass files have a finer grit and are more gentle on the wraps. Using a glass file on the tips with leave a smoother edge allowing you to get more wear out of your wraps.

4. Plastic Baggie Methods

If you have a tip that is lifting, you can use the plastic baggie method. If your wrap no longer has any adhesive (isn’t staying when you reheat and press), you can still repair it! 

Apply a small amount of clear polish to an orange stick, then apply it underneath the wrap that is lifting. 

Use the plastic baggie method to apply firm pressure and heat to the wrap. Keep the baggie on your nail while your wrap cools. 

Viola!

5. Seal the Top of Wraps with Clear Gel

An alternate method to get your wraps to last even LONGER is to apply clear gel on top of them. The gel creates a seal and protects the wrap from the elements. 

PRO TIPapply gel after your nails have grown out for a few days. This will seal the edge near your cuticle and will prevent snagging in your hair.

Maintaining your wraps is important if you want them to last as long as possible. Here is a recap of the most popular maintenance methods:

  • 1. Use Soap to Clean Hands Instead of Sanitizers
  • 2. Reheat and Apply Pressure 
  • 3. Clip the Free Edge with Nail Clippers and Refile 
  • 4. Plastic Baggie Methods 
  • 5. Seal the Top of Wraps with Clear Gel

By properly prepping nails and applying wraps using the method that works best for you, your wraps will look great. With maintenance, your wraps will look amazing for up to 2 weeks!

About Amber

After college I served in the Peace Corps, traveled to exotic places, got my hands dirty, ate crazy delicacies, and had many fantastic adventures...but something was missing! I had resigned to having plain, boring, bare nails for years. I never knew there was an alternative to polish's toxicity, odor, & chipping...until I found Jamberry Wraps.  
 
Have you ever wondered why nail techs suggest customers return every 2 weeks? 
 
Those are called maintenance appointments. 
Even wraps sometimes need a fix.

After about a week, depending on how much time I put into prep and application, my wraps will start to lift at the tips or my nails will be too long. 

Sometimes the wraps start to bubble around the edges- that depends on my hydration levels. Please don’t lecture me, I try to hydrate...

The easiest way to maintain wraps is to reheat them and press again. I find my hair straightener perfect for this because it heats itself and I can press it exactly where I want it. 

Sometimes I’ll heat my spoon pusher and use that too. (Remember to only apply the hair straightener to your nail after you turn it off and it is cooling; you could burn yourself and/or melt your wrap.

If a corner is lifting and there isn’t any adhesive left to heat and press, you could dab a spot of clear nail polish under the wrap and seal it with the plastic baggie method.

Too much growth? There are a couple of ways to fix that. If your nails are too long, simply trim them with clippers and refile the wraps. 

If you don’t like looking at the new nail growth by your cuticles, you can reheat the wrap, peel it off (with a tool, not your fingertips) and place it farther back on your nail (before trimming the free edge of course or you will have bare nail showing).
