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
  • Paint a thin coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip entire finger at an angle into color acrylic of choice
  • 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 3
  • Repeat to create a strong foundation for the nail art

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

Step 4
  • Brush Step 2 Base onto the entire nail plate for the nail art to stick to
  • Dip the tip of a toothpick or nail art applicator into Step 2 Base and quickly use the toothpick or nail art applicator to carry over nail art, placing on top of wet Base
Step 5
  • Use the toothpick or nail art applicator to press down any pieces sticking up; immediately dip finger at an angle into Base & Finish

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

Step 6
  • Apply Step 2 Base and dip into color powder of choice for the rest of the nails

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

Step 7
  • Brush Step 2 Base onto the entire nail plate and immediately dip finger at an angle into Base & Finish to encapsulate the nail art fully
Step 8
  • Apply Step 3 Activator onto the nail and allow a few minutes for powder to harden
