ProHesion Tip Application with White Tip

Step by Step Instructions

PREP:

Push back the cuticle and shape the nail. Buff with a 100 grit buffer.  Remove the dust with a lint-free nail wipe and Nail Surface Cleanse.

STEP 1:

Apply a thin coat of pH Bond to the natural nail.

 
     

STEP 2:

Apply Secure Nail Adhesive to nail tip.  Apply to nail and press corners for 4 seconds to secure.  Cut tip to desired length and shape the free edge.  Remove dust and apply ProBond to the natural nail.

STEP 3:

Apply Crystal Clear powder to the center of the nail; press towards the cuticle and then distribute to rest of the nail.  Pick up another bead and place at the juncture of the nail tip and natural nail.  Press to evenly distribute and blend the product, then stroke towards the free edge and smooth.

 
     

STEP 4:

File the free edge and lower arches with the 150/150 grit file then repeat those steps with the 180/180 file. Contour and shape the nail surface using the 180/180 grit file.

STEP 5:

Continue working down the nail onto the white, lifting the nail up so you can see both the nail and the file to refine c-curve (bevel). Repeat all steps using the 100/180 grit buffer followed by the 220/280 buffer. Remove dust with a dry Wipe It Off when switching to the next grit buffer.

 
     

STEP 6:

Apply Gelish Nourish Cuticle Oil to cuticle and massage into cuticle and nail. Using a Wipe it Off, remove any excess oil. Prepare surface for high shine by buffing with the blue side of the Eco Shiner. Create high shine with white side of the Eco Shiner.
