NCLA X GLAMOUR Limited Edition Nail Wraps


Pin ItAre you ready for some high fashion nail wraps (stickers) that support a great cause?  NCLA partnered with Glamour as part of  Fashion Gives Back to create four Limited Edition Nail Wraps.   Signature prints featured in the Resort 2013 collections of 10 Crosby Derek Lam, Bibhu Mohapatra, L’Wren Scott and Peter Som, are transformed into limited-edition nail decals exclusively for Glamour.

These are not nail polish wraps.  Instead they are true stickers.  The directions are simple!

  1. Clean your nails with nail polish remover.  Apply a coat of clear polish.  LET DRY!
  2. Choose correct size for each nail.  Peel from the sheet by the flap.  Wraps can be worn bottoms up!
  3. Apply the round side against the cuticle.  Nail wrap can be removed and stretched to fit perfectly.
  4. Once in position, firmly flatten the wrap starting from the cuticle.  Repeat to remove all air bubbles, until completely flat.
  5. Use the nail file (provided) to remove any excess.  File in a downward motion.  Apply another coat of clear polish for seal and shine!  Repeat on all nails.

I found these nail wraps easy to apply.  Unlike other stickers, these did NOT damage my nails, as the clear base coat provided a barrier between the sticker and my nail!

All four versions of the limited-edition nail wrap kits will be sold exclusively at select Barneys Co-op stores and shopncla.com starting December 4. Easy to apply at home, each $16 kit contains enough wraps for three to four manicures. Five dollars of every kit sold goes to Girls Who Code, a nonprofit that helps young women pursue careers in technology and engineering.
