Full-Coverage Nails
Created by Dashing Diva (multiple locations)
1. Sanitize your and your clients hands. Remove polish and clean the nail plate with acetone. Push back the cuticles. This is crucial to obtain an accurate t. 2. Organize the nail sizers by arch and C-curve. Measure the clients side arch, C-curve, and width of each nail. Arrange the nails in the proper order. 3. Prep the nail bed by lightly buffing the nail plate with a 180- to 240-grit le to remove shine. (You can trim the natural nail down or leave the nails the original length.) Remove dust with a nail brush, then apply Start Right pH Balancer, or any pH balancing agent, to the nail plate. 4. With a Swipie or a Q-tip, apply Skin Shield to the exposed areas around the nail bed. 5. Apply Rapid Bond Glue to the bottom third of the full-coverage nail. Slowly lower the nail onto the nail plate at a 45-degree angle and hold it in place for ve seconds. 6. Using a Swipie or Q-tip, clean any excess glue from around the nail and under the free edge. 7. Holding the nger angled downward, apply Bond Accelerator around the base of the nail near the cuticle and under the free edge. 8. Cut and shape the nails to the length and shape the client desires. 9. (About two weeks later) When its time for removal, the client can either soak off the nails in acetone at home or in your salon. In the salon environment, a Sonic Touch Nail Remover, an ultrasonic nail remover that safely warms acetone, gives the client the fastest soak-off time.

Colorful (Acrylic) French Mani
Created by Christies Nails, Ocean View, Hawaii
1. Remove the old product with tip cutters or by ling it down. 2. Cut away any lifting and prep the nail before lling the cuticle area. 3. Grasp the nger securely using an over-hand grip. This gives you more control when you are ling. Pull the nger away from the nail so you can le deeper into the corners without touching the skin with the le bit. Use a carbide bit to carve the smile line. Set your electric le to a very slow speed. Brace your right hand against your clients nger with your pinky. You must always brace your right hand to have control. Run the edge of the carbide bit along the nail starting up in the corner and continuing down into the smile. 4. When you have gone a little more than halfway across the nail you may want to adjust where you are bracing your pinky so you can carve up into the other corner of the nail. 5. Make sure you remove nearly all of the old colored acrylic. 6. Apply a nail form. 7. Place one acrylic bead at the end of the nail on the nail form. Press the product up into one corner of the smile, then up into the other corner. At this point it is not necessary to keep the smile line clean. You can overlap the tip color onto the smile line just make sure you have the product tucked all the way up into the corners. 8. With a carbide bit, rene the smile line, removing excess product. When the excess acrylic has been removed you will be left with a crisp smile line. File and shape the nail. 9. (Optional) Apply a UV gel top coat as the last step.
