Step 1: Saying Goodbye to the Old

Gently soak your old strips in remover and use an orangewood stick to loosen them. Shape your nails with a file and apply cuticle remover for 30 seconds. Gently push back the cuticles and remove any dead skin. Trim any remaining dead skin with nippers, taking care not to cut living skin.

Step 2: Polishing the Canvas

Buff your nails lightly and apply the Ohora prep pad for a clean base. For extra protection, use the primer before applying the strips.

Step 3: The Art of Application

Choose your favorite Ohora set and fit the strips to your nails, stretching them if needed. Leave a tiny gap near the cuticle for the “acetone trick.” Trim the excess and press down firmly along the edges with the included stick.

Step 4: Sealing the Deal with Acetone

Dip a brush in 100% pure acetone and carefully brush it along the cuticle and sides three times. This melts the edges for a seamless, chip-resistant finish. Skip this step if you don’t experience hair snagging.

Step 5: Curing for Perfection

Cure the strips under the Ohora lamp for at least two minutes, adding more cycles if needed. Once fully cured, use a nail file to perfect the edges, ensuring no strip overhangs the nail.

Step 6: The Final Touches

Apply one coat of UV gel top coat, making sure not to cut the cuticle and cap the free edge of the nail. Cure again for a final seal. Clean off any residue with a nail brush and acetone, then pamper your cuticles with oil.
