Apply a thin coat of Step 1 Bond. Allow it to dry completely.
Apply a thin coat of Step 2 Base. Use a small scoop to pour Base & Finish powder over the toenail
PRO TIP: Avoid getting the product onto cuticles, powder will pick up wherever Base is applied.
- Tap the toe to remove loose powder, and use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder.
- Apply a second coat of Step 2 Base, and pour scoops of your preferred dip powder color over the nail. Here we used the shade French White.
- Tap on toe to remove loose powder, and use a pointed tool to clean up the edge around the cuticle. Use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder.
- Repeat as needed for more coverage.
PRO TIP: Brushes may harden or pick up color powder during application. Simply switch them between Brush Softener for easy cleaning & workability.
Apply Step 3 Activator, and allow a few minutes for powder to harden.
File and buff the nail to create the desired shape & smoothness.
Wash toes or use a lint-free wipe saturated in alcohol to wipe the nails clean from filing debris.
PRO TIP: Make sure nails are completely dry before moving to the next step!
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.
Apply a thin coat of Step 4 Sealer, and allow 2-3 minutes for nails to dry.
Apply a final coat of Step 4 Sealer and allow nails to fully dry for 3-5 minutes.
PRO TIP: Don't apply more than 2 coats of Sealer as this will prevent even drying & may result in a gummy pedi.
A dip pedicure may seem daunting at first but with practice, it's as easy peasy as a manicure!
