How gorgeous is this soft ombre mani?! We love getting creative with variations on a French mani, and this look takes it to the next level. We’ve created a seamless blend between shimmery tan NA31 and subtly sparkly brown NA32. Try this coffee and cream palette today, or combine your own favorite colors! ☕
PRO TIP: Make sure you thoroughly prep nails to ensure adhesion & long-lasting wear! Push back cuticles, create a rough texture on the nail plate by filing, and sanitize thoroughly.

  • Apply a thin coat of Step 1 Bond. Allow it to dry completely.
Step 2
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip fingernail into Base & Finish Powder.

PRO TIP: Avoid getting the product onto cuticles, powder will pick up wherever Base is applied.

Step 3
  • Tap finger to remove loose powder, then use a fluffy brush to sweep off any excess.
