01. Clean any oil and moisture on your nail
Wash your hands and use the prep pad to make sure your nails are clean and dry.
02 Pick the size
Choose the semicured gel that fits your nail size and remove the clear film.
03 Apply semicured gel
Apply the semicured gel slightly apart from the cuticle line.
04 Trimming (Filing)
Use the nail file to file the leftover semicured gel.
It is recommended to cure 2-3 times under the ohora UV Gel Lamp - if the nails are not hard enough, cure an additional 2-3 times.
*Please note that overcuring may cause early chipping and cracking.
How to remove
Minimize nail damage by repeatedly wetting the enclosed wood stick with a remover. Push the stick gently from the edges to the cuticle.
This was my first try with Ohora and of course I picked a slightly harder set to apply but they are sticking just fine. I cured them about 3-4 times. Also applied the glossy top coat to all but 1 matte color. They’ve survived a hectic day of changing kids diapers, rushing through the subway and sorting through work. They look extremely expensive and lux. The nail gem is beautiful and substantial but I have to be careful as it catches in my hair and also has some sharper edges. But it’s a gem with smaller stones set in like a ring would be and it’s amazing.
This set has not stayed on well compared to Mulberry or the plain white mani strips. The day I put them on, I lost a gem nail and a gold stripe nail- but I assumed it was due to my own negligence. I replaced them and went about my business as usual. Its been two days, and a multicolor nail fell off today. I put another multicolor on, cured it with top coat and everything. Then later today (still only on day three) one of my purple nails is already chipped. I haven’t had this much trouble with the two other colors I’ve used before. I love the designs and colors, and the gem is super cute- but I hate that its constantly scratching my face, clothes and getting caught in my hair. I also wish there was some english instruction that came with the nail protector strips but luckily the website made that info easy to find. I also wish Ohora had a matte top coat because the matte purple didn’t get to stay matte I found a matte coat by another brand and its coming this weekend, but judging by this set I’m gonna need a week or two break for some nail strengthener.
I really love the quality and the effortless application of the product.
These are very ornate for what I am normally used to, but they are very pretty nonetheless. I posted photos of the purple nail strip as matte (the way they come) and then after I put a top coat on that made it shiny. The color isn’t quite as purple as the picture shows on the box. It’s actually more of a deep dark Bordeaux. The jewel nail has a burgundy/purple jewel that matches well with the Bordeaux nail strips. It also comes with a fleshy white color nail strip with two gold stripes and then the purple and gold stain glass looking nail strips. Be sure to press down all around your nail bed when putting these on so they don’t snag on your hair. I found the jewel nail a bit tricky to put on. Be sure to press down all around the jewel. You could use the wooden stick that comes with the set or a Q-tip would work also.
