Step 2: Open the gel bottle and flatten both sides of the brush on the side of the bottle. With the flattened brush, cap the free edge with a thin line of color to prevent chipping.

TIP! While holding the client’s finger, gently push the finger pad away from the free edge to help prevent product from getting on the skin.
