HOW TO STEPS

STRENGTHEN YOUR NAILS WITH ACRILIC DIP DURING GEL APPLICATION

 

Strengthen your nails by adding this step to your gel application.

If you have thin or weak nails, this is the easiest way to add strength and longevity to your gel manicure.

 

STEP 1 

Before anything else, start your manicure by prepping the nails.

Make sure to push back the cuticles and lightly buff your nails (with a file) to give them a matte look.

Wipe your nails clean with alcohol/primer.

Let nails dry completely before starting dip process.

 

STEP 2

Start by applying a thin layer of base coat to all the nails. Cure for 60s.

 

STEP 3

Apply another thin layer of base coat to the full nail.

Place your nail over a jar, scoop some powder and pour it over the entire nail.

Tap the finger to remove excess powder. Repeat the same process on the other nails.

 

STEP 4

When you are done with the first coat, place your hand in the lamp for 60s.

After curing you can brush off any excess powder using a brush.

 

STEP 5

Continue with another layer by sprinkling the powder over the wet base. 

 

STEP 6

Cure for 60s in the lamp. After curing brush away any leftover uncured powder.

Lightly buff any imperfections and smooth the surface. There is not much buffing needed. Wipe your nail with alcohol to remove filing dust.

 

STEP 7

Last step is to apply a nice, even layer of Gel Polish Top Coat.

Cure for 60 second in your lamp.

 

STEP 8

Finally, apply a liberal amount of Cuticle Oil into the skin surrounding the nail plate and you're done!
