Play button
Treat your nails to a milk bath with this pretty pastel nail art. 🛀 It's easy with our new Milky Collection. This tutorial delivers a subtle ombre-ish design that reminds us of cotton candy.
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 thin coat of Step 1 Bond and allow it to dry completely.
Step 2
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 2 Base, and immediately dip finger into Base & Finish powder.

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

Step 3
  • Open and stir the dip powders you’ll be using. For this look, we are using MK-01, MK-03, MK-05 and MK-07.
  • Carefully apply a second coat of Step 2 Base and immediately pour small scoops of each color powder onto different parts 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
  • Repeat to achieve desired coverage.
Step 5
  • Apply Step 3 Activator and allow a few minutes for powder to harden.
Step 6
  • File nails to the desired shape, and buff nails to achieve a smooth surface.
Step 7
  • Wash hands or use a lint-free wipe saturated in alcohol to wipe the nails clean. Allow hands and dip powder to fully dry.

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

Step 8
  • Apply a second coat of Step 3 Activator. Allow 3-5 minutes for nails to dry.

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

Step 9
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 4 Sealer and allow 2-3 minutes of dry time.
Step 10
  • Apply a final coat of Step 4 Sealer and allow nails to fully dry for 3-5 minutes.

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

Finish!
  • Milk bath nails are easy when you use milky acrylic dip powders. Enjoy this pastel cotton candy ombre milk bath dip manicure!
