Thinking about trying a new brand? Here’s a step-by-step guide for applying Premium Nails ManiPedi Elite Matching Gel Polish and Lacquer. »
Sanitize, push back the cuticles, then prep the natural nail with a buffer.
Cleanse the nail with 90% alcohol.
Apply a thin layer of Tri-Bond and let dry 20 seconds. A slightly tacky layer will remain. (Optional: only do this for clients that are prone to lifting).
Apply one thin layer of Elite DualCoat. Remember to cover/seal the free edge of the nail. If applying on artificial nails, apply Elite Gel Polish directly on the unbuffed artificial nail. Do not apply Elite DualCoat, skip to step 6.
Place hand under UV for 90 seconds, LED lamp for 40 seconds.
Apply one thin coat of Elite Gel Polish from cuticle to the free edge. Again, remember to cover/seal the free edge of the nail.
Place hand under UV/LED light and cure as before. (For darker coverage repeat steps 6 and 7. Darker colors may need longer curing).
Apply 1 coat of Elite DualCoat from cuticle to free edge with a thin application.
Again, place hand under the UV/LED lights and cure as before. For longer wear time a second coat of Elite DualCoat may be applied.
Finally, wipe off the slightly tacky layer with 90% alcohol.
