Pro Tip! For even curing, you may cure each nail separately.
1. Trim off any extra nail length with a nail cutter.
2. Buff off the top most layers, and avoid buffing your natural nail bed.
3. Remove the Glass Paper by either wrapping it in foil or soaking it in acetone.
Thoroughly soak a cotton ball in acetone. Afterward, place it over your nail and tightly wrap your nail in aluminum foil. Do this for each finger and leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes. Lastly, remove the foil, and gently rub the cotton ball along with the foil on your nails.
Pour acetone into a small bowl and soak your nails inside for 15 to 20 minutes. If excess polish remains, soak it in for another 5 minutes.
4. Buff, shape and nourish.
5. Lightly buff the surface of your nails. Afterward, shape your nails with a nail file and create your desired shape. Then, nourish your nails with cuticle oil.
