French Press and Relay Grey

Step-By-Step

  1. Cleanse, prep and apply Airbond, Tack or Powerbond depending on your client's nail type and cure for 2 minutes in UV light or for 30 seconds in LED light. Then, apply one coat of Pink 1-Step Lexy Line UV/LED Gel keeping it thin at the free edge and cuticle. Cure for 2 minutes in UV light or for 30 seconds in LED light.

  2. Apply French Press glitter gel to index nail and Relay Grey to the other nails. Cure for 2 minutes in UV light or for 30 seconds in LED light. Repeat this step one more time.

  3. Apply a small amount of gem gel. Cure for 2 minutes in UV light or for 30 seconds in LED light.

  4. Using the crystal tool, pick up crystal and using the Shader 10/0 Art brush place a small dab of gem gel on the back of each crystal, as it is placed. Place them as shown in pictures.

  5. Once each crystal is placed, using a light “dabbing” motion, apply a small amount of gem gel around each crystal, pulling a tiny bit just up onto the very edge of the crystal, creating a “Gel Prong” to secure the crystal to the nail. Be Very Careful Not to cover the crystal with gel, as it will lose its brilliance. Cure for 2 minutes in UV light or for 30 seconds in LED light.

  6. Apply Super Shiny on each of the nails, carefully going around the crystals. Cure for 2 minutes in UV light or for 1 minute in LED light.
