Frequently Asked Questions

What size are the canes?

How do I slice the canes?

Why is that "white" clay surrounding some of the designs?

Can I re-sell your PolyNail nail art?

Q.  What size are the canes?

A.  The canes are approximately 1/4" in diameter (5-6 mm) by two inches (51 mm) long.  Depending upon how thin you slice the canes, you will get between 100 to 120 slices from each cane.  Because all of the canes are handmade, you can expect minor variations in size.

Q.  How do I slice the canes?

A.  The key to slicing polymer clay nail art canes is to get them warm first. The canes should be warm to the touch, but not hot. You may place the canes in a coffee cup of water that has already been warmed in the microwave, put them on a heating pad set on low, or warm them on top of paper towels in a toaster oven. Whichever method you choose, be sure to keep the canes from getting too hot as the clay will turn brown if it burns. For the thinnest cuts, use a polymer clay cutting blade found in craft stores, or a tissue blade from a medical supply.

Q.  Why is that "white" clay surrounding some of the designs?

A.  It appears in the photos that some of the designs are surrounded by white clay, however this is actually transparent clay that is "packed" around the design so it will keep its shape while being reduced.  When sliced thinly the transparent parts of the design will become almost clear.

Q.  Can I re-sell your PolyNail nail art?

A.  Yes!  You may purchase our PolyNail nail art at wholesale, 50% off our suggested retail prices, with a minimum $100 order.  The PolyNail nail art will arrive packaged for retail sale, however many nail techs prefer to use the nail art and charge per nail.

Profit Example to Apply Nail Art:
68 canes x $2.95 = $200.60 - 50% = $100.30 cost
68 canes x 100 slices per cane = 6,800 slices / 4 slices per nail average = 1,700 nails
1,700 nails x $2 upcharge per nail = $3,400 income
Profit Example to Retail Nail Art:
90 pkgs of slices x $2.25 = $202.50 - 50% = $101.25 cost
Retail for $2.75 x 90 pkgs = $247.50 - $101.25 cost = $146.25 profit
