No Time For A Mani? Try Nail Wraps

Easy nail art

Nail wraps and stickers are nothing new, but these days they're getting some extra attention. And why not? Theoretically, nail wraps are a heaven-sent alternative to the traditional lacquer. No more waiting for the polish to dry, chipping won't be an issue, and it's an easy, mess-free way to give your tips some nail art. All you have to do is paste the wrap, file and you're good to go. There's really no harm in giving it a try! Keep reading to know where you can get the best nail wrap sets in our region.

Incoco Japan

Incoco Japan provides an array of cute and dainty designs that will surely catch your fancy. From ethereal florals to sparkling glitters, there's no shortage of adorable looks in their catalogue. Their products are available in over 30 stores in Japan so getting one won't be an issue when you're visiting the country. Be sure to check out their Ornate Collection, which features beautiful ombre options.

EMMEzing Nails

The edge of EMMEzing's nail wraps is their "3 in 1 material" system where each wrap already comes with a base and top coat along with the design. This innovation will certainly cut down your manicure time by almost half, which is always a plus in our books. They also offer nail wraps in special edition designs that celebrate local culture like the "ILY, Ondeh-Ondeh!" set inspired by the tasty Southeast Asian snack called Onde-onde. International shipping is available so you can gift this to your friends overseas.


Based in the Philippines, Ki-Kai (a play on the Filipino word "kikay" meaning girly) has just launched a year ago and is now beginning to expand to more locations nationwide. But although they're a newbie player, Ki-Kai already offers a wide variety of designs ranging from minimalist to bold and geometrical. They even have a tropical-inspired collection that's made in collaboration with local influencers Kally Araneta and Chelsea Robato. 

Nail Pop

Gals in Malaysia can get their nail wrap fix via Nail Pop. They have several outlets in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya, but you can also just order the goodies online (for Malaysia delivery only). Some of their must-haves are the embellished nail wraps that include little gemstones in the design which are perfect for complementing any glam look.
