SmART-nails Nail Art Stencils Review
There are those of us that love and appreciate nail art but are not necessarily blessed with artistic skill. Then there are others that would like nail art but would like something easy to do and does not involve a lot of time and bother. Well there is a solution to both problems and it’s called SmART-nails.

What better way to introduce you to this hot nail art product than a comprehensive explanation and product review that hopefully will answer all your questions. So let’s get started....
SmART-nails Nail Art Stencils - The Easy & Fun Way to Create Striking Nail Designs
What Are SmART-nails?              
SmART Nails is a rather natty, easy to use Nail Art Stencil System that’s been specially developed to enable anyone with only a modest level of skill to create beautifully crisp mistake free nail art designs time after time. You don’t need any special training, tools or products - just a stencil and your existing collection of nail polish.

Who Are SmART-nails Suitable For?
The stencils are equally suitable for professional and home use.

How Many SmART-nails Designs Are There?
There is currently 66 unique designs in the SmART-nails stencil range, a nice wide variety of creative patterns with something to suit everyone.

What Do You Get in the Packet?
Each SmART-nails packet contains 10 individual stencils ready for immediate use. Full easy to follow application instructions are included on the reverse of the packaging.

Application Instructions for SmART-nails Nail Art Stencils
So how do you use SmART-nails nail art templates? Read on and follow these simple instructions.
  1. You can choose to use the nail art stencils on natural nails or if you prefer on top of a nail varnish finish. If you choose the latter, think about a complimentary or contrasting colour polish. Whichever way you decide to go prepare the surface of the nail by ensuring the surface is completely clean and dry.
  2. Choose a Smart-nail stencil. Remove from packaging and gently peel off a stencil from the backing sheet.
  3. If you want to reduce the likelihood of leaving any sticky residue on a pre- applied nail polish layer simply stick it to the pillow of your finger (skin side) for a couple of times in order to reduce the intensity of the glue. 
  4. Position and place the stencil on the nail. They are quite flexible so you can stick them on any shaped nail. Make sure that it is flat and well stuck down. Press the sticker onto the nail and be sure that the area around the design has properly adhered to the nail. You can tell just by looking at it and seeing if there is air underneath. Ensuring the sticker is properly placed will reduce the chance of any nail polish bleeding under the stencil and ensures that you get a nice crisp result.
  5. After choosing your favourite colour nail polish, apply a moderate layer over the exposed area of the template (where the shape is cut). There is no need to go over the border of the sticker.
  6. Leave a few seconds, then slowly and carefully peel away the nail stencil. Don't wait for the nail polish to dry before removing the stencil or you will end up pulling the image off the nail!
  7. You will more than likely want to use the stencil again, so to avoid damaging it don’t twist the template during removal.
  8. If you want to use a different colour nail varnish first let the application dry and clean the stencil ready for an alternative colour nail polish. Repeat the process.
  9. Once you’re finished clean the stencil and carefully put back onto the backing sheet for next time.
Are SmART-nails Stencils Reusable?
With care you can use a stencil many times, but it really comes down to how you look after them. We have managed to use the same stencil on three separate sessions but to be honest I don’t expect much more than this. But hey that’s pretty good for something that’s supposed to be disposable. I’ll post an update later based on our experience.

Can SmART-nails Be Used with an Airbrush?
Yes. SmART-nails stencils are perfect for those that wish to use an airbrush.

Aren't Nail Art Stencils Messy to Use?
No, quite the opposite really. The design is limited to the shape of the nail stencil so any excess nail polish should get all over your fingers. As long as you let each stencil application dry properly (which really depends on the brand of nail polish you’re using) the results are nice and crisp.

Are SmART-nails Stencils Worth the Money?
Definitely, they are in our opinion really good value. They are quick, easy and fun to apply and I can use my existing nail polish collection. The quality of the nail art is excellent and after you get past the initial idea of using them with a single colour polish and you start to combine different colours and different shapes you really can create some awesome nail art patterns. Check out some of these themes and decide for yourself.

Are SmART-nails Stencils Better Than Nail Art Stamping?
They are similar in process. We think that the stencils are faster and easier to place and generally involve less faffing around. You can place the stencil exactly where you want and its easier to move it if you’re not happy before you apply the nail polish. With nail art stamping you can never really apply the design accurately and if you don’t like the result you have to clean it off and start again.


  1. Hi Naomi, and thanks for your positive comment. These SmART-nails stencils are perfect for nail art on the fly. We're currently running some experiments with these nail art stencils with the objective of checking their compatibility with shellac and other uv cured nail systems. We will be publishing our findings and results in a forthcoming article on The Nail Art Company blog. Stay tuned and thanks for following.

    Kind regards
