VANITY TABLE is all about sharing innovative beauty tips that’ll bring our beauty routine to the next level, and we VANITY TABLE editors are always adventuring new tips to save your day. On that note, for today’s blog we’ll share two of our editors’ tips to answer the most frequently asked questions on ohora - Can ohora nail strips be used on long and fake nails?  

The answer is YES. Absolutely. Long nails create that elegant long and lean silhouette to die for, not to mention nail trend 2020 - coffin and tapered almond - is definitely about that extra inch on your finger tips. For those of you who saw ohora somewhere, would like to try, but unsure whether or not extra inches of your nails should be a deal breaker or not, VANITY TABLE editors tried ohora on long nails for real. We too, as fellow ohora lovers, came up with ideas and tips on how to make the best out of ohora with long nail shapes, so let’s check it out 

1. Natural nail X ohora 

If you have naturally long nail beds with strong nails, then we’ve got one thing to say - Forget about nails, we want your hand! For those of you who can shape their natural nails into long nail shapes, then the process of applying ohora is more or less similar to what you would do on any other nails. However, since ohora’s a ready-made nail strip, there are some things you’d better keep in mind before you start. We’ve done this hundreds of times, and we’d like to share first-hand tips that’ll guide you through! 

Step 1. Clean your nails 

You don’t need to file your nail surface before applying ohora, but it is essential to remove any oil and water on your nail with an alcohol swab in order to make sure ohora strips stay firmly on your nails. Also, removing loose skin around your cuticle area will help you apply ohora neatly and seamlessly. You can either use nail pusher and cuticle oil, or just simply push your nail inward towards your cuticle from the edges with ohora Pro loose skin remover for quick and easy preparation.  

Step 2. Pick your size 

If you’d like your ohora to cover your nail from side to side, then we’d recommend you to check your whole nail fits ohora strips before peeling them off from sheets because both edges of ohora nails slightly differ in width.  

Editor’s Tip! ohora nails are 22mm longs with 16 different width options, and the strip is narrower around cuticle area. ohora strips are soft like jelly before curing, so you can stretch them to fit your nails. When you do, please be mindful not to stretch them using your nails to avoid the strips from tearing.

Step 3. Apply ohora on your nails 

For a seamless fit, stick on ohora strips around the cuticle area and then gradually stick them without bubbles. Then use the flat side of your woodstick to press the strips firmly around the edges. 

Editor’s Tip! When you peel off ohora from sheets, avoid touching the sides that go on your cuticle to maintain the stickiness of the glue. (The narrow, round shaped side of the strip is designed to fit your cuticle line, but you can apply it otherwise depending on your nail shape!) 

Step 4. Trim the edges 

In order to trim the leftover strips, we’d recommend using nail clippers. If you don’t have one ready, you may also roll the edges of your nails against hard objects like furniture.  

Editor’s Tip! A lot of ohora users wonder if you can leave ohora strips longer than your natural nails for extension effects. Although it is possible, leaving extra strips makes it vulnerable to chipping and water or hair entering the crack, so please don’t forget to trim the edges before curing.

Step 5. Cure it 

Cure it 1~ 3 times with an ohora gel lamp.(ohora gel lamp is offered free for our subscribers, and the lamp turns off automatically after 30 sec each time, so there’s no need to set the time) ohora is compatible with other gel lamps with UV/ LED lights as well. 

Editor’s Tip! For long nails, we’d strongly recommend using ohora Pro Glossy Top Gel after curing! Not only it adds glossy texture, but sealing the gap between the ohora strip and the nails, especially around the tips of your nail with top gel will help prevent water or hair getting in between.

2. Artificial Nail x ohora 

For those of us who are not blessed with naturally long nail beds, we’ve got a wild card called fake nail tips. Whether or not ohora strips can be used with fake nails is by far the most popular question from our users! ohora is made with real liquid gel polish, so of course you can. Been there, done that, and we greatly appreciated the result as well. We tried various ways to maximize ohora’s benefit on fake nails after times of trials, and here you are! We’ve got essential tips to ease your way as follows. 

Step 1. Clean your nails 

Just like a natural nail, remove oil and water on the surface of your nail before attaching ohora strips.  

Step 2. Pick your size 

Just like a natural nail, remove oil and water on the surface of your nail before attaching ohora strips.

Editor’s Tip! For artificial nails we often apply the gel polish on top of fake nails before attaching them to our fingernails. However, we do not recommend this with ohora strips. ohora gel nail strip is made of real polish and it thus hardens and fits your nail after curing, so fully applying ohora on fake nail tips before applying may lessen both the fake tip and ohora strips’ elasticity, reducing the chance of forming a perfectly customized fit on your nails. 

Step 3. Trim the edges 

Trim the edges with nail clippers.  

Step 4. Cure it 

Cure the ohora nail 1~3 times using an ohora lamp, and buffer the nail into shapes according to your preference using an enclosed nail file.  

Editor’s Tip! Once cured, ohora gel nail strip hardens like a regular gel nail polish, and thus it is unable to be reused. If you’d like to change colors on nail extensions it is possible to remove ohora using regular acetone remover or ohora Easy Peel Remover, but please keep in mind that removing ohora from fake nails may yield different results from natural nails!
