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.
The following steps are to be applied 2 fingers at a time only, until all 10 fingers are done. DO NOT apply it onto 10 fingers consecutively.
Step 2: Apply FRENCH 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 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. Repeat this for the remaining fingers, remembering to do it 2 at a time. Then, file and buff the nails smooth before continuing.
Step 3: Working on 2 fingers, apply a generous amount a FRENCH BASE, using the 3 stroke method. Dip the nail tip into FRENCH WHITE for 3 seconds, keeping the smile line. Take the finger nail out and flick it once to remove any loose powder. Clean away excess powder on the sides and under the nails (so that the white does not contaminate into the pink powders).
Step 4: Sprinkle LIGHT PINK or DARK PINK onto the area where the nail has not been covered by the white powder.
Step 5: Dust the hands clean, including under the nails. Apply FRENCH BASE and dip the nail into CRYSTAL CLEAR. Follow this with ACTIVATOR to dry. Repeat steps 3, 4, and 5 on the remaining fingers, 2 at a time, until all 10 fingers are complete.
Step 6: Shape the nails, then file and buff the nails smooth. Apply ACTIVATOR onto the nails, then allow the client to wash their hands without soap, and dry it completely.
Step 7: Apply a thin coat of GLOSSY TOP on one hand - this should be done quickly and not too close to the cuticles, starting from the pinkie to the thumb. Remember to wipe the brush on a clean paper towel after every finger. Apply another thin coat of GLOSSY TOP on the same hand - but closer to the cuticle this time - from pinkie to thumb. Then repeat step 6 on the other hand. Fan dry for 1 to 2 minutes.
Step 8: Apply VITAMIN OIL or any cuticle oil on the cuticles and run it into your clients finger and nails.
