Step 1

Apply a coat of Step 1 Bond and allow it to dry completely.

Step 2
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 2 Base and immediately dip finger into Base & Finish powder.

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

Step 3
  • Make sure to stir your powders before starting your mani for best application.
  • Apply a second coat of Step 2 Base to the entire nail. Carefully, dip a corner of the nail, at an angle, into CL-73 to create a slanted look. Tap finger to remove loose powder, and immediately dip the remainder of the nail into CL-72.
Step 4
  • Tap finger to remove loose powder, and use a fluffy brush to sweep off excess powder.
  • Repeat 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.

Step 5
  • Apply Step 3 Activator and allow a few minutes for powder to harden.

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

Step 6
  • File & buff the nails until you’ve achieved the desired shape and smoothness.
Step 7
  • 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 8
  • 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 9
  • Apply a thin coat of Step 4 Sealer, and let nails dry for 2-3 minutes.
Step 10
  • Apply a final coat of Step 4 Sealer, and allow 2-3 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.

Finish!
