Complete Powder Perfection Nail Prep Step by Steps.
Apply 1 even coat of Base Coat and dip into Mexico City Move-mint. Allow the product to absorb and dust off excess. Repeat for coverage.
Use a dotting tool and Base Coat to apply various sized dots throughout the nail and immediately pour Mural Mural on the Wall to the tip of the nail.
Proceed with Coral-ing Your Spirit Animal to the middle nail and My Chihuahua Doesn’t Bite Anymore to the middle of the nail to create a dotted ombre effect. Dust off excess with a cosmetic brush.
Apply 1 coat of Base Coat & dip into Clear Color Set Powder. Allow to absorb & dust off any remaining powder. Apply 1 generous coat of Activator to the nail surface & allow 1-2 minutes to fully harden.
With a Fine Carbide Safety Bit or a Mandrel + Sanding Band, shape and contour the nail as desired. If shaping by hand, use a 180 EDGE File followed by a 100/180 and 220/280 FLEX Buffers. Once complete, remove excess filing dust.
Apply a second generous coat of Activator to the nail, making sure to cover the entire surface. Wait 1-2 minutes before applying Top Coat. Not waiting for the Activator to dry will cause your brush to harden.
Apply one even coat of Top Coat using 2-3 quick brush strokes. Wait 1-2 minutes to dry. Repeat this step, but this time with more precision as this is the final step. Wait 1-2 minutes to dry.
Finish by removing the excess powder with a cosmetic brush. Add a drop of Cuticle Oil to each nail and massage in.
