  • How to Apply Ombre Dip

    It takes two to make an ombre go right. Learn how to perfect red-and-black, va-va-voom dip nails.
    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
    • 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 the lighter color acrylic of choice, here we are using CL-06
    Step 4
    • Using a fluffy brush, the shape being comparable to an eyeshadow brush, dab the darker color acrylic onto the tip of the nail plate. Here we are using CL-64
    • The pigment from the acrylic powder will transfer onto the nail plate without increasing the amount of acrylic powder on the nail

    PRO TIP: Tap gently to rid of any loose color dipping powder & gently swipe with a fluffy brush

    Step 5
    • Repeat steps 3 & 4 for more coverage
    Step 6
    • Apply Step 2 Base and then pour Base & Finish over the nail bed to seal powder

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

    Step 7
    • Apply Activator thoroughly, wait 3 minutes until hardened; then file and buff nails
    • Wash hands thoroughly or wipe with alcohol
    • Then apply a coat of Step 4 Sealer, allow 3 minutes to dry; then repeat to finish
