Detailed Colour Application Instructions:
1. Clean and prep nails. Buff nail surface with 100 grit EFFECT BUFFER to remove shine. Cleanse nail with Artistic NAIL SURFACE CLEANSER and a LINT-FREE WIPE. Apply Perfect Dip PREP to all nails and let air dry.
2. Apply a thin coat of Perfect Dip BASE COAT, making sure to avoid getting on cuticle or skin. Quickly dip into chosen Dip Powder. Tap off excess. Repeat on remaining nails. Once all nails are complete repeat base coat and dip process.
