PRO TIPS:

1. 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.

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