What You’ll Need:

Brush Hour:

  • Detail Brush

Steps it Up:

  1. Apply one coat of GelColor Stay Strong or Stay Classic Base Coat and cure for 30 seconds in your OPI LED Light.

  2. Apply two coats of GelColor Bubble Bath. Cure each coat for 30 seconds.

  3. Apply one coat of GelColor Bikini Boardroom to the tip of the nail, creating a French mani. Cure for 30 seconds.
    PRO TIP: For crisp line werk, remove excess with an Expert Touch Nail Wipe and N.A.S. 99 Cleansing Solution.

  4. Using a detail brush, apply GelColor Makeout-side to one corner of the French tip. Flash cure for 5 seconds.

  5. Using the same brush and nail colour, add squiggly lines from the tip past the French smile line. Cure for 30 seconds.

  6. Apply a coat of GelColor Stay Shiny Top Coat. Cure for 30 seconds. Wipe away the residue with an Expert Touch Nail Wipe saturated in N.A.S. 99 Cleansing Solution. Apply ProSpa Nail & Cuticle Oil to each nail and massage it in.
