Why does my polish look different than I expected?
Fangirl Polish mixes each polish by hand in small batches. This can sometimes lead to slight color and glitter variations. Also, please take into consideration different computer, phone, and tablet screen resolutions, which can all cause color variance. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask :)

Tips For Polish Application:
- Use a good base coat. Everyone has a different body chemistry and, although unlikely to happen, high pigmentation in some polishes can cause nail staining. A good base coat will help to prevent nail staining.

- A good top coat is also recommended. Top coat will help to smooth out glitter polishes, as well as help protect against nail tip wear of any polish.

- For best results, bottles of glitter polish can be turned upside-down for a few minutes prior to polishing.

- If you feel that your polish is a little too thick for your liking, you can add a few drops of polish thinner. However, be aware that thinning out a polish too much can reduce the suspension ability and glitter will sink. Also, NEVER use acetone or polish remover to thin out a polish, as these will ruin your polish.

Stuff & Thangs: Water Slide Nail Decals **Tips & Tricks**
- Quick dry top coat is NOT recommended for use with decals, as it will shrink and distort the image. A regular top coat works best.

- If the decal doesn't want to stay in place, you can always:
Gently blow warm air on it and press again. Repeat this process as necessary and work out any air bubbles at the same time. Or, you can put your decal over a very thin layer of regular top coat (quick dry top coat is NOT recommended. It will shrink and distort the decal) to help it stick. Just be sure there isn't any excess water on the decal before placing it over the wet top coat.

- Fangirl Polish's water slide nail decals are printed on either transparent or white backed decal paper. It will be clearly stated in the item description which of the paper types the item listing will be printed on.

- All decals printed on transparent/clear paper will look best on lighter shades of polish (such as white, very light beige or very light nude colors, etc.).  All areas that are white on the image will actually appear as the color of the polish on your nails. However, they can still be seen over darker shades of polish by simply painting the decal with white acrylic paint. The white paint enhances the colors on the water slide decals, allowing the image to "pop" more. You can search You-Tube for a tutorial video on this method, as there are several different techniques.

- All decals printed with white paper ARE NOT transparent, and can be worn over any color of polish. All areas that are white on the image will indeed be white. Also, decals printed on white paper will need to be cut as close as possible to the image in order to avoid a white "ring" around the image.

- If there is an area on the decal that is clear and you want to fill it in a different color, other than that of your polish, you can always use different colors of acrylic paint to do so as well! Be creative and have fun with them!! :)

- Very warm water works best to submerge them in, but usually any temperature of water will work.

- You can submerge your decals in very warm water for a solid 60 seconds (1 minute), and they become very thin. The longer your decal is submerged in water, the thinner it will become. Thinner decals provide less visible "seams" when placed on the nail, however thinner decals are also more fragile to work with and can tear, so please keep this in mind.

- When cutting out the images, stay as close to the decal image as possible, cutting around the image. Rounded edges seem to look better than hard square edges.

Stuff & Thangs: Water Wraps **Tips & Tricks**
- For best results, make sure you have pre-trimmed your Water Wrap to your nail size.

- Always you a base coat. It helps to have the base coat slightly tacky during placement of the Water Wrap to help adhere it to the nail.

- Using very warm water works best. It is recommended to submerge your Water Wrap for at least 45-60 seconds.

- Make sure all water has been removed from the Water Wrap before using a top coat. Quick dry top coat is NOT recommended as it will shrink and distort the Water Wrap.

- When smoothing out Water Warp on your nail, it is best to work from the middle out toward the edges of your nail.

- If you get a crease, as long as the Water Wraps aren't too thin, you can gently lift from free edges and carefully place it back on the nail.

- You can use a clean up brush and acetone, and/or small nail scissors, to dissolve/trim Water Wrap from around nail edges after placement.

- Very lightly filing the tip of your nail, and/or dissolving with acetone and a clean up brush are recommended ways to remove Water Wraps from the tip of your nail.                                                                            
- You can also cut Water Wraps into any desired shapes (i.e. strips) and place them on nails for use with nail polish. Water Wraps work great for negative space manis!

- Water Wraps will remove like polish, just soak with acetone and wipe nail clean.
