Step by step guide to Dipping nails application
Procedure for applying dipping nail colour on natural nails:
Prep all 10 nails see post
Apply 1 coat of Base to 3/4 of the natural nail
Dip into natural set or clear powder (provides extra strength and durability)
Repeat on all 10 nails
Apply 1 coat of Base over entire nail. Dip into powder.
Repeat on all 10 nails.
Repeat step 3
Apply 1 more coat of gelous base. Dip into clear powder
*After dipping 1 hand I like to apply sealer to this hand before dipping the second hand - it allows more drying time for the next step.
Clear is your final coat which will protect your colour before the buffing stage.
Apply sealer over entire nail.
Shape nails, file surface to smooth out any bumps.
Block buff to smooth out the nail surface.
Ensure nails are completely dry. Any moisture left on the nails will wreck your sealer.
Apply sealer to all 10 nails.
Wait 1 min. Wipe nails with a dry lint free gauze. Again there must be no moisture remaining - this will harden your topcoat brush.
Apply 2 thin coats of Top gel
Wait 1-2 minutes
Nails should be completely dry - your client can get out her purse and keys, pay you and drive home without smudging her nails.
