    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 thin coat of Step 1 Bond. Allow it to dry completely

    PRO TIP: Be sure to work quickly, before Step 2 Base dries!

    Step 2
    • Paint a thin coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip tip of finger at an angle into Base & Finish.

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

    Step 3
    • Carefully paint a second coat of Step 2 Base in the shape of a cat’s head & ears at the tip of the nails.
    • Use a clean utensil to pour colored acrylic of choice onto the tip of the nail and then tap finger to rid of loose powder; then use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder.

    PRO TIP: We used CL-64 but use whatever color speaks to you!

    Step 4
    • Repeat for more coverage.
    Step 5
    • Carefully apply Step 2 Base where you would like the eyes to be placed, then immediately pour over French White.

    PRO TIP: Not satisfied with the eye placement and haven't poured French White yet? Gently dab to rid of majority of Base & let dry completely, then apply again.

    Step 6
    • Before the eyes harden, use a toothpick or pointed tip to create the irises, making sure to wipe the end after each eye.
    Step 7
    • Paint a thin coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip tip of finger at an angle into Base & Finish to encapsulate 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 8
    • Apply Step 3 Activator, allow 3-5 minutes for nails to harden.
    • Then buff & shape nails to your desired finish.
    Step 9
    • Wash hands or use a lint free wipe saturated in alcohol to wipe the nails clean.

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

    Step 10
    • Apply a second coat of Step 3 Activator.
    • Allow 3-5 minutes for nails to harden.
    Step 11
    • Paint a coat of Step 4 Sealer and allow 2-3 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 12
    • Paint another coat of Step 4 Sealer and allow 2-3 minutes for nails to dry.

    PRO TIP: Don't apply more than 2 coats of Sealer as this will prevent even drying & may result in a gummy mani.

    Finish!
    • Enjoy your purr-fect mani & keep those claws looking sharp.
