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.

You will need the following:
You will need the following:

Large nail glitter! We recommend Cacee's Nail Art Glitter for the perfect large glitter accents. They have a wide range of glitter to mix & match your mani.

Step 1
  • 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 finger at an angle into color powder of choice. Here we are using CL64.

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

Step 3
  • Carefully apply a second coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip finger at an angle into color 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 4
  • Apply another coat of Step 2 Base. Then using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, tap GL12 onto the top of the nail plate.
  • Create a gradient of glitter cascading downwards. Use a fluffy brush to dust off any excess powder.
Step 5
  • Apply another coat of Step 2 Base & use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to sprinkle the larger glitter to accent the design.
  • Use any chunky glitter of your choice. Here, we are using Cacee’s #199. Use a pointed tool to press down any glitter standing up.
  • Pour Base & Finish over the remaining wet Step 2 Base.
Step 6
  • Repeat to build the gradient.

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

Step 7
  • Carefully apply Step 2 Base over the entire nail & immediately pour Base & Finish onto nail to seal the glitter.
Step 8
  • Apply Step 3 Activator and allow 3-5 minutes for powder to harden.
  • Buff and shape nails to your desired shape and finish.
Step 9
  • Wash hands or use a lint free wipe saturated in alcohol to wipe the nails clean.

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

Step 10
  • Apply a second coat of Step 3 Activator. Allow 3-5 minutes for nails to dry.
Step 11
  • Apply Step 4 Sealer in thin quick strokes and allow 2-3 minutes for nails to dry.
Step 12
  • Apply a second coat of Step 4 Sealer and allow 3-5 minutes for nails to dry.

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

Finish!
  • Ring in the New Year with a new mani!
