How to apply Loceryl® Nail Lacquer correctly?

While having infected toenails can be uncomfortable, the Loceryl® Nail Lacquer Kit is easy to use for fast treatment.

Step-by-step instructions for using the Loceryl® Nail Lacquer Kit

To correctly use the Loceryl® Nail Lacquer, follow these steps.

  1. Use one of the single-use nail files included in the Loceryl® Nail Lacquer Kit to file down the top of the affected nail as much as possible.
  2. Use the included cleaning wipes to clean and remove any grease from the toenail.
  3. Open the nail lacquer and, using the same technique you would use to apply nail polish, apply the lacquer onto the nail.
  4. Let the lacquer dry—approx. 10 minutes.
  5. Repeat the process once a week*

With those five steps in mind, let’s dive a little deeper into the preparation, cleaning, and application stages.



Before using the nail lacquer, you need to prepare the affected nail. Use one of the included nail files to file down the top of the nail. Note that you are not filing down the end of your nail, like you would during a manicure or pedicure. For the lacquer to do its job, you need to file the top to create a rough, more porous surface so that it can target the infection. Once you’ve filed the top of the nail, dispose of the single-use file.




Within your Loceryl® Nail Lacquer Kit, you will find cleaning wipes. Use one of these to clean the area and remove any nail polish. This helps to remove surface germs so that lacquer has an easier time addressing the problem. It also helps the lacquer applicator stay clean for more effective treatment.



Once you have filed down and cleaned the toenail, you can use the lacquer. Apply the Loceryl® antifungal lacquer over the entire surface of the infected nail or infected nails. It might seem like only one area of the nail is affected, but infection can easily hide or spread to uninfected areas, so always apply to the entire nail. Repeat this process once a week*.


How long should I use nail lacquer for treatment?

Treatment with Loceryl® nail lacquer will vary in time, depending on how severe the condition is. For some, it can take 9 to 12 months or longer for the nail fungus to completely clear up. One nail lacquer kit should be enough to last the entire treatment, as you’re only using it once a week*. If you are concerned and want a professional’s opinion, you should always speak to your doctor. For the fastest results with nail lacquer, maintain a regular application.

If you forget to regularly apply Loceryl® Nail Lacquer

For best results, you should use Loceryl® nail lacquer once a week*. If you forget to apply it to the affected area, you can simply apply it as soon as you remember. Then re-start the pattern of using it once a week*. Consider setting a reminder on your phone or making a note on your calendar if you are worried that you’ll forget to use your nail lacquer. Those little reminders can help keep you on track toward healthy nails.
