Before you begin:
Powders may settle or become dense sitting overtime & can create uneven dipping results. For seamless dipping, loosen powders by shaking jars while closed or stir with a clean utensil prior to use.
Wash and dry hands, push back cuticles, buff nail, wipe with alcohol then apply your primer.
Apply a thin coat of the base coat on the entire nail surface, avoid getting on cuticles.
Dip nail into powder and tap finger gently to remove excess.
Gently brush off excess powder without pressing on the nail.
Repeat STEP 2
We recommend 3-4 dips. This will be files and buffed back in step 9.
Repeat STEP 3
Repeat STEP 4
Apply Activator and ALLOW NAILS TO DRY before filing, shaping and smoothing the entire nail.
Note: Very gently apply the activator on to your nail, coating everywhere, don’t apply any pressure as you may indent the powder.
Shape and buff your entire nail. Apply a second coat of activator, then WASH AND DRY HANDS.
Apply one more coat of activator after you have finished buffing. Wash your hands in water only, dry thoroughly.
Apply two coats of top coat, first sparingly and quickly. The second coat slower and thicker.
Once your top coat has completely dried apply some cuticle oil around your cuticles.
NOTE: The DIPD Cuticle oil pen is not included in the DIPD Starter Kit, but can be purchased additionally online.We highly recommend after you have completed your nails you give your 2-in-1 and activator brushes a good clean in our DIPD Brush Saver to maintain soft and clean brushes during applications.
