Nail Manicure Tutorial
If this is your 1st time, please read this carefully:
dot
Make sure to really take your time and read all the steps CAREFULLY. The 1st time it really needs your full focus and concentration to do the nails properly, so no
multi-tasking.
dot
We recommend to first read through the whole instructions and watch the videos first and then to go back to step 1 and start the process.
dot
Like playing the piano, doing your nails is a skill, the 1st time it'll take the longest, it'll be the hardest & the results might not look as perfect as you want.
dot
Also if this is your 1st time, we recommend to do the process first on just 1 finger to get the hang of it, and then after that do it on the rest of your fingers.
1st Time
1-2 hours
Takes the longest & results might not look as perfect as you want.
2nd Time
45 min-1 hour
Already much faster & results look much better!
3rd Time
20-30min
You can do it while netflixing and results are nail artist worthy!
Remember lady, practice makes perfect and you can't expect to get the same results at your first try as a nail artist that already does it for 15 years and did over 10.000 ladies their nails.
Tips & Tricks
Before diving straight into the tutorial take a quick minute to read
these tips & tricks. This way you'll get the best results possible.

Why it Occurs:

Chipping and cracking often result from:

dot
Rushing the steps
dot
Not following the preparations steps carefully
dot
Applying the product too thinly or unevenly.
dot
Holding the brush straight up (at 90 degrees) during application can cause uneven buildup, leading to ridges and cracks.

Solution:

1. For a uniform application, hold the brush flat against the nail and use long strokes from the cuticle to the tip. 2. Dip the nail into the powder at a 45-degree angle to achieve
a smooth surface. 3. Apply 4 color coats for maximum strength. 4. Apply extra activator around the nail's flexible free-edge for added durability.

Why it Occurs:

Lifting of the dipping powder often results from poor nail preparation. Proper adhesion requires the nail plate to be clean and free from moisture and debris.

Solution:

1. If you notice your manicure lifting, pay closer attention during the prep stage. Push back cuticles, remove any dead skin from the nail, and lightly buff away the nail's shine. This helps improve adhesion. 2. When applying the base, ensure it's near—but not on—the cuticle line. Applying on the cuticle line can cause lifting.

If your nails are still wet from the activate it, it will harden the brush of the top it, so make sure your nails are FULLY dry, this is extremely important!!

Also make sure to screw the lid of the TOP IT fully when waiting for the TOP IT to dry on your nails.

Step - Base & Dip
Very important:
dot
Follow the instructions carefully and make sure to apply 4 layers of BASE IT to prevent chipping.
dot
When you're not using the bottle make sure to fully screw on the lid to prevent the brush from going hard.
Quick Tips:
dot
Coat 1 nail at a time and DIRECTLY dip your finger into the powder
dot
Make sure NOT to paint your cuticles to prevent lifting
dot
Where you apply the base coat the powder is going to stay, so apply the base coat evenly and ONLY at the nail plate, avoid your cuticle area at
ALL costs.
If it helps you can take a toothpick and go around the edges to clean up the edges after you’ve dipped your finger into the powder, this should help to
keep it clean.
Products Needed
1. Base It
Dipping Powder
Powder Brush
Steps
A: Stir through the powder with your cuticle pusher to make sure there are no clumps in the powder and application will be smooth
B: The first step is to take the base coat and brush off the excess residue, stay on 1 side of the bottle neck to make sure it doesn’t
get sticky.
Now go ahead and apply a thin and even layer of base coat, ensuring you cover the sides of the nail as well. Hold the brush parallel to your nail, so not 45 or 90 degrees. This will help to prevent chips & cracks!
0 degrees
45 degrees
90 degrees
C: Now dip your nail into the powder at a 45-degree angle. After dipping tap on your finger to shake off any excess powder.
If the powder on your finger appears wet, you've used too much base coat and you need to redip your finger without adding more base it.
D: After you've done all your nails brush off any excess powder
with the powder brush.
E: Repeat Step B to D another 3 times until you have a total of
4 layers, this is VERY IMPORTANT.

Step - Activate
Quick Tips: The 2. ACTIVATE IT is the solution that hardens the nails to prevent
chipping & cracking.
dot
This solution is skin-friendly, so don't be afraid to touch the skin
dot
Make sure to apply generously, VERY GENEROUSLY all over the nail plate
dot
The free-edge of the nail is most likely to chip & crack because it's the most flexible, make sure to apply gently on the free-edge
dot
Don't worry if your nails are clumpy and not perfect, in this step we'll
create the perfect shape.

3rd try.
Products Needed
2. Activate it
Nail File
Powder Brush
Toilet/Kitchen Paper
Steps
A: Apply TWO generous, very generous, layers of activator to the full nail plate. It's important to coat the edges and, the tips as well. The activator is skin-safe, so use plenty & don’t be afraid to touch your skin with this step.
Repeat applying the activator on all nails. Wait 2 minutes until the activator is FULLY dry. You can test if the nail is fully dry by going over it with a piece of kitchen/toilet paper.
B: File down the nail until all bumps & impurities disappear and the nail plate is perfectly smooth, don’t be afraid to file roughly until you have a fully smooth surface.
Important to know: If your nails don’t look smooth/even at this point, they also wont look smooth/even when you apply the Top it. Make sure to really take your time to file them in the perfect shape.
C: When you are done shaping: Remove the excess dust with the powder brush
D: Apply a second layer of activate it.
Apply a very generous amount. Again: the more, the better,
and also make sure to cap the edges of the nails. Now repeat this on all nails.
 Wait 2 minutes until all the nails are FULLY dry. To make sure the nail is fully dry go over it with a piece of toilet or kitchen paper and then start with the top coat. If your nail is not fully dry and you apply the Top It then the brush will become extremely hard. So make your nail is FULLY DRY!!

Step - Top
Very important:
dot
If your nails are still wet from the ACTIVATE IT, it will harden the brush of the TOP IT, so make sure your nails are FULLY dry, this is extremely important!!
dot
When you're not using the bottle make sure to fully screw on the lid to prevent the brush from going hard.
dot
Also make sure to prevent any TOP IT on the skin to avoid 
premature cracking
dot
And if you apply a too thick layer of the top it a “blister” will occur,
so prevent that as well!
Products Needed
3. Top it
Toilet/Kitchen Paper
Nourish It Or Cuticle Oil OR
Steps
A: Go ahead and apply a thin and even layer of TOP IT to your nail.
After each nail wipe the brush on a clean dry piece of kitchen paper and then put it back in the bottle. Make sure it’s not out of the bottle for too long because this will also harden the brush Repeat this process on all your nails. Now wait 2 minutes to allow your nails to fully dry NOTE: Screw the TOP IT lid fully back on the bottle to prevent the brush becoming hard. Did it still become hard? Switch the brush with the spare one and put this one in step 4 the Clean it. (Let the clean it brush dry and put that back at the spare brush place) This will make it soft again.
B: When the timer went off you then apply a 2nd layer of top it by basically following the same steps as in step A and again wait for 2 minutes.
C: Apply cuticle oil for the health & strength of your nails.
