It takes two to make an ombre go right. Learn how to perfect red-and-black, va-va-voom dip nails.
PRO TIP: Make sure you thoroughly prep nails to ensure adhesion & long-lasting wear! Push back cuticles, create a rough texture on the nail plate by filing, and sanitize thoroughly.

Step 1
  • Apply a coat of Step 1 Bond to all fingernails
Step 2
  • Apply a coat of Step 2 Base starting halfway onto the nail surface, stroking out towards the nail tip

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

Step 3
  • Carefully dip just the tip of the nail into the lighter color acrylic of choice, here we are using CL-06
Step 4
  • Using a fluffy brush, the shape being comparable to an eyeshadow brush, dab the darker color acrylic onto the tip of the nail plate. Here we are using CL-64
  • The pigment from the acrylic powder will transfer onto the nail plate without increasing the amount of acrylic powder on the nail

PRO TIP: Tap gently to rid of any loose color dipping powder & gently swipe with a fluffy brush

Step 5
  • Repeat steps 3 & 4 for more coverage
Step 6
  • Apply Step 2 Base and then pour Base & Finish over the nail bed to seal powder

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

Step 7
  • Apply Activator thoroughly, wait 3 minutes until hardened; then file and buff nails
  • Wash hands thoroughly or wipe with alcohol
  • Then apply a coat of Step 4 Sealer, allow 3 minutes to dry; then repeat to finish
