Step 1: Shape Nails
Using a nail file shape each nail to the desired shape.
Step 2: Push Back Cuticles
Using a wooden cuticle pusher, push your cuticles back.
Step 3: Buff Nails
Using a buffer block to buff the surface of your natural nails. This is an important step to ensure the natural oils on your nail are removed for better adhesion.
Step 4: Clean & Dry Nails
Wipe your nails with alcohol. Keep your nails clean and dry.
Pro Tip: Alcohol will make sure all oils are removed from the surface of the nail plate.
Step 5: Apply Nails
Stretch your hands so all fingers are extended. Select an individual nail tip, and place two small dots of glue on the nail. Press down firmly for 15-30 seconds. If using adhesive tabs, place the sticky side down and peel off the protective barrier.
Step 6: Repeat Step 5
Repeat on all nails until your manicure is complete.
