For beginners! A quick video showing 3 different ways to hold the wrap when applying your Jamberry... the "fold back", the "thumb close up" and the "balancing orange stick". Your very first application might feel awkward but once you get in the groove you will be a pro before you know it! Some people use tweezers, too, which I haven't tried yet. The main thing is to avoid touching the wrap too much because the oils from your fingers can break down the adhesive. After I made the video I remembered a 4th way -- stick it on the end of the cuticle pusher (as pictured above) and this also prevents the wrap from curling too much which can make the application challenging.
