Very easy to apply and super stretchy plus very forgiving. With this brand you don’t need to use the largest size but better to use close to the size of your nail bed and stretch a little. I chose too large a size for my thumbs and am sure if I had used a smaller size I would have had a better turn out. This is my first time using this brand and am converted now. Very fast shipping! I love all their top coats as well as their builder gel. Great company!
