  1. Cleanse, prep and apply Airbond (No need for cure), Tack or Powerbond. (Cure for 2 minutes in UV light or for 30 seconds in LED light.) depending on your client's nail type.

  2. Apply one coat of 1-Step Lexy Line keeping it thin at the free edge and cuticle. Cure for 2 minutes in UV light or for 30 seconds in LED light.

  3. Apply Tangled Mittens color gel to all nails except the ring finger.

  4. Using a striper brush and Tangled Mittens, draw an angled line from the center of the cuticle area to the right corner of the free edge and a second angled line from the center of the cuticle area to the left corner of the free edge and fill in the area between the lines, from cuticle to the free edge, with Tangled Mittens.

  5. If lines need any correction or to be more crisp, use the smile line brush to make the corrections.  Cure.  Apply a second coat of Tangled Mittens to all nails and in designated area of the ring finger. Cure for 2 minutes in UV light and 30 minutes in LED light. 

  6. Apply a thin coat of 1-Step gel over all of the nails and on the design nail, place crystals and studs in the uncured gel and position as desired, then using the 20/0 Art brush, take a small amount of 1-Step and touch the tip of the brush to the gel surrounding the crystal and very lightly pull just a tiny bit of gel up to the very edge of the crystal, work your way around each crystal and stud. Cure for 2 minutes in UV light and 30 minutes in LED light. 

  7. Using the same 20/0 Art brush and 1-Step, go around each crystal and stud again, making sure not to cover crystals, you only want to place just a small amount of gel around the bottom edge of each crystal and stud.  Cure for 2 minutes in UV light and 30 minutes in LED light. 
  8. Cleanse using a lint free whip and Cleanser, apply cuticle oil and Enjoy!
