How To Apply A Jade Mani

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.
