How to use Entity Dip & Buff
- Prep nails with Entity 180 grit file
- Cleanse nails with Entity Natural Nail Prep
- Apply prep on all 10 fingernails
- Apply base on 1 nail and dip into powder (continue on rest of nails). ROBERT TIP *I recommend doing 1 hand at a time, sometimes it helps to make a habit of wiping the brush clean on a nail wipe*
- Use a fluffy brush to remove the excess powder. ROBERT TIP *This is key because a lot of people don’t remove all the excess powder and it will get stuck on the base coat brush when they do the 2nd coat*
- Apply BASE and dip 1 nail into the powder. Use brush to remove excess powder. ROBERT TIP *Although not necessary I apply activator right after removing the excess powder. This will create a smoother finish*
- If you have not applied activator on nails then do so now.
- Buff nails with Entity 100/180/220/280 files.
- Cleanse nails with Entity Natural Nail Prep.
- Apply Entity Activator on 1 hand.
- Allow 30 seconds for the activator to absorb into the nail.
- Use a dry nail wipe and wipe over the nails that were freshly activated.
- Apply Entity Top Coat thinly to each finger. ROBERT TIP * Do this and wipe the top coat brush on a clean wipe after each application*
- Apply the second coat of Entity Top Coat. ROBERT TIP * Wipe the top coat brush on a clean wipe after each application*
- Leave nails for about 2 to 3 minutes to fully dry. ROBERT TIP *Do not use a fan or light to try and speed up the curing process*
- Repeat steps 10 to 15 on the other hand.
