Each and every product in the SmART Nails® range comes with fully illustrated instructions at the back of the packaging and a full color photo on the front of the packaging showing how the design looks on the actual nail.
The SmART Nails® range is a collection of templates in the form of a stencil that are used as tools to create artistic designs on the nails, using any type of nail polish. Each product contains 10 stencils, one for each finger.
They are easy to use tools, enabling you to achieve amazing professional results without special skills or training. The SmART Nails® range of design templates is comprehensive and versatile though by no means is it limited to the design on the template itself. In other words you can take the template and with a bit of imagination obtain a lot more effect and designs out of them.
For example you can combine more than one color using the template. Working quick enough for the nail polish not to get dry, you can apply as many colors as you like to fill up the same template in order to achieve gradients of colors or a two color design.

Smart Nail Application
1. Can I use the stencil more than one time ?
You can reuse them at least a couple of times. In order to do that you have to:
stick them back on the supporting paper (or on the back of it) immediately after taking them off the nail
let them get dry. If needed, gently wipe them off using a little bit of nail polish remover on an q-tip.
reuse them only when they are dry
2. Do you need to use a special nail polish ?
No need for special nail polish! You can use the stencils with any type of polish , as long as it is a strong, contrasting color.
3. After I apply the nail polish on the stencil, do I need to wait for it to get dry before removing the stencil from thenail?
The opposite! You have to peel of the stencil from the nail as soon as possible after you finish applying the nail polish. Never leave the polish to get dry on a stencil that is still on your nail! It will lift the design together with the stencil.
4. How long will the design last on my nail ?
The resistance of the design on your nails depends mostly on the nail polish you used to apply it. From our experience thought, the design tends to remain there even after the nail polish base coat begins to peel. Nevertheless, we recommend you to apply a transparent nail polish coat on top of the design (after it gets dry) which will protect it from damages by scratch. Make sure that before you apply this protective layer :
the design you apply it on is perfectly dry
you apply it quickly, in one or two moves, for it not to get smudged
To verify if a nail polish base is dry enough for your design to be applied on:
First touch the polish on your nail delicately with your finger and if it`s dry enough not to be sticky or to deform during this procedure, then press more firmly with your finger tips and see if the fingerprint remains imprinted on the nail polish layer. if you can see the fingerprint, the nail polish is not dry enough. If it doesn`t get imprinted, no matter how hard you press then the layer is definitely dry enough.
To make sure you're not going to smudge the design while applying the transparent nail polish sealing layer:
Seal first the design, let it rest for five minutes and then, seal the rest of the nail.
If your design contains glitter, first seal the glitter and then the rest of the design, in order for the small particles of glitter not to spread all over the nail.

6 . Can the stencils be used also with colored gel or acrylic ?
Yes! Sometimes it`s even more durable than using them with nail polish.
