Step 1: Prep the nail. Start by applying a base of hard pink gel. Cure for two minutes under a UV light.
Step 2: Apply a nail form.
Step 3: Using hard pink gel, extend the nail bed. Build up the gel as needed, then cure for two minutes. Note: This will not cure an LED light.
Step 4: Remove the form, then shape the nail and buff away shine.
Step 5: Apply a form. Tip: Using a binder clip to pinch the form into a tighte stiletto helps keep the shape of the nail that you’re building.
Step 6: Sculpt an extension with white gel along the form. Cure for two minutes.
Step 7: Cap the nail with thick, clear gel to bond the pink and white together, and cure for two minutes.
Step 8: File and shape the nail.
Step 9: Finish with a high-shine gel top coat.
