Peel Base

Peel base makes it easier to remove dip powder manicures with less damage to your natural nails. It can also be used to shorten the wear of your dip if you change your manicures frequently. Wear time may vary, and users should experiment with painting a portion of the nail, the whole nail, or using multiple coats to discover what works best for you. Peel base should go directly under the layer you want to later remove, it can be placed above or under tips. For best results avoid painting your cuticles.


Peel Base Application

 Step 1: Prep your nails as usual, for more information please see our nail prep tutorial.

 Step 2: Apply a thin and even layer of peel base directly to the nail or over your tips. Wait for the peel base to dry completely. (Between 3-5 minutes). Repeat this step as desired.

Pro Tip* First time user? For easier removal we suggest starting with a strip of peel base down the center of the nail. For immediate removal or short term wear we recommend 1 full coat of peel base across the entire nail.

Step 3: Once dry, you can proceed with your normal dip powder manicure! 

Peel Base Removal

Step 1: File around the edges and sides of your manicure.

Step 2: Use a wooden cuticle pusher to gently push around all edges of your nail. If there is a lifted edge used the pusher to lift the manicure and pop off the dip powder. If it does not lift easily or if there is no lifted edge, you may need to file more around the edges of your nails. Repeat this process for each nail.

Pro Tip*Nail bed chemistry varies per user, if the manicure will not pop off proceed with your normal dip powder removal process. Next time experiment by adding more peel base to your nail.

Step 3: Buff out any rough spots and moisturize your cuticles. You are now ready for your next manicure! 

 

Brush Softener

Brush softener is used for hard or stiff brushes that have been contaminated by other liquids. If your brush is very hard or was left out the brush softener will not work to soften it.

Step 1: Protect your area by placing down a nail mat. Remove the brush from your brush softener, wipe off the excess liquid on a paper towel and place it to the side to dry.

Step 2: Remove the contaminated brush from your liquid bottle, wipe off the excess on a paper towel and screw into the brush softener bottle.

Step 3: Place the dry brush softener brush into your open liquid and use as normal.

Step 4: For best results allow the contaminated brush to sit in the softener for at least 24 to 48 hours before replacing. Always wipe your brushes off on a clean paper towel before placing them into a new bottle.

Latex Cuticle Peel

This product is used as a barrier around your cuticles and the sides of your nail to create a cleaner manicure. It can be used to achieve a multitude of designs or just keep dip powder away from your cuticles without the messy clean up. Do not shake this product. This will create bubbles and make it harder to use. If the peel needs to be mixed gently roll the bottle on a flat surface.

Application:

Step 1; After nail prep, before your first dip, apply a thick layer of cuticle peel around your cuticle and edges of your nail. Try to get as close to the nail as possible without painting your nail. If you get it on your nail you can wait for it to dry, rub it off and repeat step 1.

Step 2: Allow the latex to dry completely on your skin about (3-5 minutes). You can use heat to speed up this process.

Step 3: For best results do one nail at a time. After the latex is completely dry, proceed with your step 1 and dip powder. Immediately after you are done dipping, while the powder is still wet, use tweezers to slowly pull off the latex.

Pro Tip*Touch up any rough edges with the side of the tweezers or a wooden cuticle pusher before curing.

Step 4: Use step 2 to cure, and finish as desired.

Step 5: repeat process 2 through 4 until complete and enjoy!
