Product Aftercare Pro Tips

  • To extend product life, be sure to clean the neck & rim of bottles with alcohol immediately after dipping a full set of nails. Tighten caps & store in a cool environment away from heat & direct sunlight. Without proper care, Step 2 Base and Step 4 Sealer may become difficult to open.
  • Brushes may harden or pick up color powder during application. Simply switch them between Brush Softener for easy cleaning & workability.
