    How To Apply A Jade Mani
    This mani is anything but jaded. 💎Using our marbling technique, here's an easy tutorial on jade-inspired dip powder nails. This chic look is super easy to recreate and oh so dreamy! 
    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 to all fingernails
    Step 2
    • Prep colored acrylic & French White in a small dish & swirl to create a stone pattern

    PRO TIP: Here we are using PA-15 & PA-16

    Step 3
    • Paint a thin coat of Step 2 Base and immediately press the nail bed downwards onto the acrylic powder mix.
    • Tap finger to rid of loose powder and use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder

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

    Step 4
    • Carefully paint a second coat of Step 2 and immediately dip nail into Base & Finish to create a transparent layer

    PRO TIP: Don't skip this step! This creates the dreamy, translucent layers

    Step 5
    • Repeat until desired thickness

    PRO TIP: Make sure to tap off excess loose powder in between coats!

    Step 6
    • Apply Step 3 Activator onto the nail and allow a few minutes for powder to harden
    Step 7
    • Use our coarse grit buffer to even out the preferred thickness of the nails and the 240 grit buffer to smooth the nail surface
    Step 8
    • Wash hands and nails thoroughly or wipe with alcohol

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

    Step 9
    • Apply another coat of Activator and allow 3-4 minutes for Activator to completely dry
    Step 10
    • Apply a coat of Sealer in quick thin strokes
    • Allow 3 minutes for nails to dry

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

    Step 11
    • Apply a coat of Sealer in quick thin strokes
    • Allow 3 minutes for nails to dry

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