Play button
Green Jelly nails are oh-so-pretty when paired with a gold smile line, applied with our beginner-friendly French method. We love this citrusy lemon/lime shade - it brings such a bright energy to your nails! The end result is a trendy jelly mani with an extra fancy twist. 🍸
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.

Step 1
  • Apply a coat of Step 1 Bond and allow it to dry completely.
Step 2
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 2 Base on the entire nail 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
  • Carefully apply a thin coat of Step 2 Base. Start at the top of the smile line and work your way towards the cuticle. When you get close to the cuticle side, flip the brush and work your way down the nail to meet the rest of the wet base.
Step 4
  • Use a small scoop to pour JL-03 over the wet Step 2 Base. Tap finger to remove loose powder, and use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder. Repeat steps 4-5 for more coverage.
Step 5
  • Apply Step 3 Activator to the dip powder. Allow it to dry for a few minutes.

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

Step 6
  • Once the dip blend has hardened, gently file the edge to create a smooth smile line.
Step 7
  • Carefully apply Step 2 Base in a thin line against the smile line, and immediately pour GL-12 over the nail.
Step 8
  • Apply Step 3 Activator to the glitter powder on the nail and allow it to dry for a few minutes. Once hardened, file the edge of the glitter dip powder to create a smooth edge.
Step 9
  • Apply a coat of Step 2 Base onto the rest of the nail & immediately dip nail tip into JL-03. Tap finger to remove loose powder, then use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder. Repeat for more coverage.

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

Step 10
  • Apply a coat of Step 2 Base to the tip of the nail. Then immediately dip into Base & Finish powder.
Step 11
  • Apply a coat of Step 3 Activator. Allow 3-5 minutes for nails to harden.
Step 12
  • File and buff nails to achieve the desired shape & smoothness.
Step 13
  • Wash hands or use a lint-free wipe saturated in alcohol to wipe the nails clean.
Step 14
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 4 Sealer. Be sure to also apply to the free edge! Allow it to dry for 1-2 minutes.
Step 15
  • Apply another coat of Step 3 Activator, and allow it to fully dry for 5 minutes.

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

Step 16
  • Clean nails with a dry lint-free wipe to remove any excess activator.

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

Step 17
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 4 Sealer and allow 2-3 minutes for nails to dry.

PRO TIP: In this step, you can also substitute Sealer for Step 2 Base!

Step 18
  • Apply a final coat of Step 4 Sealer in thin, quick strokes and allow 2-3 minutes for nails to 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.
