The Juliette wrap, or the Juliette Manicure, is a technique of wrapping the nails with paper or a paper-like material and sealing it with adhesive, which was used by some nail technicians before the advent of acrylics. The technique is named after Juliette Marglen who marketed a wrap kit in the 1950s resembling a matchbook holding the linen/sheet material. Only the top third of the nail is covered. This method was touted as a natural nail enhancement.
