Sanitize both your and your client's hands using a hand sanitizer.
Step 1: Push and cut cuticles, and get your client to wash their hands (do not apply any oil). Buffer all 10 fingers (ensure to buff the sides and the tip of the nail) and brush away all the dust. Apply BONDING and clean excess moisture with a clean paper towel.
Step 2: Apply COLOR BASE to the full nail, but be careful not to get it on your client's skin. Use the 3 stroke method to ensure an even application. Then, dip the nail into NATURAL FOUNDATION. Repeat for all 10 fingers. Repeat this step again for a second layer if nail length is medium to long. Once you have finished this foundation, apply ACTIVATOR to dry the powder. Then, file and buff the nails smooth before continuing.
Step 3: Apply a thin layer of COLOR BASE to the full nail. Then, dip the nail into the desired colour, and tap the finger to remove any loose powder once you have taken the finger out. Repeat for all 10 fingers. Dust off the hands. Then, apply another coat of COLOR BASE close to the cuticle and dip the finger again into the desired colour. Repeat for all 10 fingers.
Step 4: Dust the hands clean, including under the nails. Apply COLOR BASE and dip the nail into CRYSTAL CLEAR. Follow this with ACTIVATOR to dry. Do this for all 10 fingers. Shape the nails, then file and buff the nails smooth.
Step 2: Apply a coat of MAGIC OMBRE FOUNDATION and dry the nails in the UV/LED lamp for approximately 10-30 seconds. Product needs to be slightly dry.
Step 3: Dip 2/3 of the nail into the 2nd color powder at 45 degree angle several times. Brush off the excess powder, then repeat this step one more time. Take the ombre brush and get a small amount of the color powder to dap it on the 2/3 tip until the ombre look is achieved.
Step 4: Lightly dust off the excess powder (dust side way 2/3 tip and toward free-edge). Finish by applying one coat of SUPER SHINY TOP GEL (the rose gold bottle) for 60 seconds in the UV/LED lamp.
