One method for building a Pink & White Gel Extension involves using French white or natural-colored, well-less tips. Applying a full set of Pink & White Gel nails using this method, follow the steps recommended in our service’s gel system instructions, which will be approximately as follows:
Step 1: Prep the nail. Trim and shape the free edge, buff the entire surface of your nails with a light-grit file to remove the shine and surface oil, push back the cuticle, remove any excess dead tissue from sidewall to sidewall, clean your nail with a cleanser or dehydrate it, and allow your nail to air dry.
Step 2: Apply the tip using adhesive resin or glue, making sure the well is placed evenly on each nail.
Step 3: Pre-etch tips by using an electric file and arbor band to remove the shine before placing the tips on the nails. We use downtime to prepare an ample supply.
Step 4: Apply a bonding agent to the nail as system requires – there are several kinds out there, from very thin bonder gels to traditional primers to protein-based sticky bonders.
Step 5: Apply clear or pink gel over the entire nail plate and extension. Apply a base gel, then a builder gel to create strength in the stress area, and possibly a gloss coat for shine.
