Nail Rock | White Dots On Red

Hello everyone, Today I have a Nail Rock manicure to show you.  This is my first time trying Nail Rock Designer Nail Wraps.  The process was fairly easy and I think it will become much easier with a little practice.  My right hand was a little more tricky to do than my left considering that I am right handed, but I think it will get better with practice.

Nail wraps are the new way to adorn fingers and toes. Forget nail polish, the best way to decorate your digits are by rocking some designer nail art with these wraps. With many celebrities like Katy Perry, Alexa Cheung, Beyoncé and Rihanna leading the way with unique nail designs it’s no wonder they are quickly becoming a beauty must have. 

The new NAIL ROCK designer nail wrap range is designed to last up to 7 days on nails and 8 weeks on the toes, with each at home nail wrapping treatment taking just 15 minutes to apply. Unlike nail polish they won’t chip or stain the nail and quicker to apply as no drying time required. 

Choose to embellish your nails with a choice of 24 different styles which can’t be achieved with regular polish. Designs include metallic gold, silver and bronze; snakeskin, denim, polka dots and animal print. Nail Rocks pack contains a full set of nail wraps for fingernails and toes.
Creative Director and leading celebrity manicurist Zoe Pocock comments: "We have designers for clothes, handbags and shoes so Nail Rock is about adding designs to nails which you can’t create with polish. "Along with a core range of classic colours Nail Rock is seasonal, fashion focused and on trend"- NailRock.com

You can watch the  HOW TO NAIL ROCK video  HERE


1 - Ease back cuticle and remove any nail polish.
2 - Shape and file the nail edge.
3 - Gently remove surface shine using a nail buffer or a smooth nail file.
4 - Select Nail Rock Wrap nearest to your cuticle size. These can be trimmed to fit if needed.
5 - Do not touch the adhesive side of the wrap that will be used on your nail.
6 - Place at the cuticle edge and apply heat from a small or travel hairdryer for a few seconds until the wrap is hot, soft and pliable.

It is important to keep the Nail Rock hot and pliable throughout the process, heating until it goes soft at each stage. The heat activates the adhesive and allows Nail Rock to fit over the curve of the nail. A travel hairdryer is the most effective.

7 - While the wrap is still hot, applying firm pressure, press the wrap down onto one side of the nail. Re-heat, making sure the wrap is soft again and firmly press it down onto the other side of the nail.
8 - Heat again and push firmly over the entire nail for a secure fit. If there is a crease; re-heat, gently lift the wrap off the nail and reapply adding further heat and firm pressure.
9 - To complete the seal, heat the whole area again and then gently pull the excess part of the wrap over the filed edge of the nail so that the shape of the edge becomes apparent through the wrap. Pull firmly but be careful not to stretch the wrap.
10- File off excess wrap at the end of the nail in a downward motion with a fine wooden file.

A little practice, careful removal of the shine from the nail, plenty of heat and firm pressure will result in a stunning, long lasting finish.


1 - Apply heat and peel off gently 
2 - Nail polish remover may be needed to remove residue adhesive.

  1. I have nail sticker things like this but I feel like it takes the fun out of it :(

  2. this is really cute :) I would just worry about finding a sticker that matches my nail bed correctly.

  3. They look great! I've been thinking of trying these out, but I have had one major question. How long do they last?

  4. @Barb- I did them yesterday and removed a couple hours after putting them on and photographing them. My left hand looked great, but due to to fact that I am right handed, it was fairly difficult for me to do my right hand without getting wrinkles and air bubbles in them. I know that I just need some practice with my right hand. I have been thinking about Nail Rockin my toes to see how long they will actually last. I think that these would probably last pretty long because when I was removing them, they were still stuck to my nails very well.

  5. These are SO cute! These are really me, I need to try them! :)

  6. Thanks Lois! I think they are pretty cute also : )
