  • How to Apply a Neon Tip Mani

    neon nail design
    It's not a regular French mani. It's a cool French mani. Made more fun by neon tip dip nails.
    PRO TIP:

    Be sure to 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
    • Apply a coat of Step 2 Base starting halfway onto the nail surface, stroking out towards the nail tip

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

    Step 3
    • Carefully dip just the tip of the nail into color acrylic of choice, here we are using NE-14
    Step 4
    • After tapping off excess powder, immediately dip the rest of the wet nail plate into a nude acrylic color, pictured is NA-25
    • Tap gently to rid of any loose color dipping powder & gently swipe with a fluffy brush
    Step 5
    • Repeat steps 2-4 for more coverage
    • Tap gently to rid of any loose color dipping powder & gently swipe with a fluffy brush

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

    Step 6
    • Apply a coat of Step 3 Activator to harden the blend of powder & liquid
    • Allow two minutes for Activator to dry completely
    Step 7
    • When the blend of powder and liquid has hardened, file nails to the desired shape
    • Use a our coarse grit buffer to even out the preferred thickness of the nails, then use the 240 grit buffer to smooth the nail surface
    Step 8
    • Wash hands and nails thoroughly or wipe with alcohol, then apply another coat of Step 3 Activator to harden the blend of powder & liquid
    • Allow 3 minutes for Activator to dry
    Step 9
    • Apply a coat of Step 4 Sealer and allow 3 minutes for nails to dry

    PRO TIP: To extend product life, be sure to wipe neck and rims of bottles with alcohol immediately after each set of application. Close caps tightly and store in a cool environment away from heat and direct sunlight. If not cleaned properly, caps may become difficult to open for future use.

    Step 10
    • Apply a coat of Step 4 Sealer and allow 3 minutes for nails to dry
