Step 1

  • Be sure to stir powder thoroughly before use.
Step 2
  • Apply a coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip finger into color powder of choice.
  • Tap finger gently to remove loose powder. Use a fluffy brush to dust off excess powder.

PRO TIP: Here we are using NA-27; feel free to use whatever color you want! To get the perfect cozy sweater look, we recommend neutrals or deep rich colors.

Step 3
  • Apply a second coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip finger at an angle into color powder to create a solid foundation for nail art.

Step 6
