Step 1
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 1 Bond. Allow it to dry completely.
Step 2
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 2 Base, and immediately dip fingernail, at an angle, into Base & Finish powder.
Step 3
  • Tap finger to remove loose powder. Use a pointed tool, such as an orange wood stick, to clean around the cuticle line. Use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder.
Step 4
  • Apply a second coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip fingernail, at an angle, into French White powder.

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

Step 5
  • Tap finger to remove loose powder, then use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder. Repeat for more coverage.
Step 6
  • Add a few drops of Step 2 Base to a small piece of foil.
Step 7
  • Use a dotting tool, or a similar pointed utensil, to apply Step 2 Base on the nail in the shape of cow print spots.
Step 8
  • Use a small scoop to pour dip powder over the nail. Here we’re using CL-50.
Step 9
  • Apply a final coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip fingernail at an angle into Base & Finish powder.

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

Step 10
  • Apply a coat of Step 3 Activator, and allow a few minutes for dip blend to harden.

PRO TIP: If you live in a humid climate, you may need to increase your dry time.

Step 11
  • File and buff nails to achieve desired shape & smoothness.
Step 12
  • Wash hands or use a lint-free wipe saturated in alcohol to wipe nails clean.

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

Step 13
  • Apply a second coat of Step 3 Activator. Allow 3-5 minutes for nails to dry.

PRO TIP: If you live in a humid climate, you may need to increase your dry time.

Step 14
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 4 Sealer in thin quick strokes. Allow 2-3 minutes for nails to dry.
  • Apply a final coat of Step 4 Sealer, making sure to seal in the free edges. Allow 3-5 minutes for nails to dry completely.

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