1. Prep and buff the nail. Apply a thin layer of Liquid No. 1 Pro Base using even strokes.

2. Dip the nail into the powder at a 45-degree angle using a scooping motion. Brush off the excess powder, and then apply a second coat of Liquid No. 1 Pro Base and dip the nail once more.

3. Apply No. 2 Activator evenly, making sure to cap the free edge. Allow it to dry for 2 minutes.

4. Shape the nail and smooth it with a buffer. Rinse the hands with water, but do not use soap. Apply a second coat of No. 2 Activator, and wait 15 seconds before wiping. Finish with two coats of No. 3 Finish Gel, capping the free edge.
