Step 1
  • Apply a coat of Step 1 Bond to the entire nail and allow it to dry completely for 1-2 minutes.
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
  • Apply a thin second coat of Step 2 Base to the entire nail. Use a small fluffy brush to gently sprinkle GW01 onto the tip of the nail.
  • Continue by gently sprinkling GW02 onto the midsection of the nail, and tapping to remove any loose powder. Use the same sprinkle technique to apply GW03 onto the remainder of the nail.

PRO TIP: Brushes may harden or pick up color powder during application. Simply switch them between Brush Softener for easy cleaning & workability.

Step 4
  • Use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder.
Step 5
  • Repeat color application for more coverage.
Step 6
  • Apply another thin coat of Step 2 Base to the entire nail and immediately dip fingernail into Base & Finish powder.
Step 7
  • Apply Step 3 Activator to the entire nail and allow a few minutes for dip blend to harden.

PRO TIP: If you live in a humid climate, you may need to increase your dry time.

Step 8
  • File and buff nails to achieve desired shape & smoothness.
Step 9
  • Wash hands or use a lint-free wipe saturated in alcohol to clean the nails of filing debris.

PRO TIP: Make sure nails are completely dry before moving to the next step!

Step 10
  • Apply a coat of Step 4 Sealer to the entire nail. Allow it to dry for 1-2 minutes.
Step 11
  • Apply a second coat of Step 3 Activator. Allow the nails to dry for 5 full minutes.

PRO TIP: If you live in a humid climate, you may need to increase your dry time.

Step 12
  • Use a lint-free wipe to remove excess activator from the nail surface.

PRO TIP: Make sure nails are completely dry before moving to the next step!

Step 13
  • Apply a coat of Step 4 Sealer in thin, quick strokes. Allow 2-3 minutes for nails to dry.
Step 15
  • Apply a final coat of Step 4 Sealer to the entire nail. Allow 3-5 minutes for nails to completely dry.

PRO TIP: Don't apply more than 2 consecutive coats of Sealer as this will prevent even drying & may result in a gummy mani.

Final!
