Step 1: Prepare the natural nail as usual and apply BO.NAIL Natural Nail Sanitizer onto the natural nail plate. Allow to fully dry before applying BO.NAIL Soakable Base Gel.
Step 2: BO.NAIL Soakable Base Gel – Wipe the brush off on the bottle neck to remove excess product. Cap the free edge of the nail to ensure durability and prevent shrinkage of the product. Holding the brush horizontal to the nail, apply a thin layer of BO.NAIL Soakable Base Gel over the entire nail from cuticle area to free edge. Cure all four fingers together for 120 sec. UV / 30 sec. LED. Repeat the process on the other hand then on the thumbs. Optional: brush with a clean gel brush to remove excess tacky cured base gel to decrease the chance of shrinkage and to get a smoother color application.
Step 3: BO.NAIL Soakable Gel Polish Color – Roll the bottle upside down between the palms of your hands to ensure that the color is thoroughly mixed. Cap the free edge with BO.NAIL Soakable Gel Polish to ensure durability and prevent shrinkage of the color. Holding the brush horizontal to the nail continue to the center of the nail. Move the brush from the center of the nail up towards the proximal nail fold and then stroke it down towards the free edge. Ensure to keep polish off the skin. If polish has touched the skin remove prior to curing the nail by using BO.NAIL Gel Cleanser and a Cuticle Pusher. Cure all four nails for 120 sec. UV / 30 sec. LED. Repeat the process on the other hand and thumbs.
Step 4: BO.NAIL Soakable Gel Polish Color – Apply a second thin coat of polish using the same process. This coat provides full coverage. NOTE: if using a highly pigmented shade or a different lamp, it may be necessary to cure a second time to ensure that it is completely cured and that no color bleeds into your Top Gel application.
Step 5: BO.NAIL Soakable Top Gel – Wipe the brush off on the bottle neck to remove excess product. Cap the free edge of the nail to ensure durability and prevent shrinkage of the product. Holding the brush horizontal to the nail, apply a thin layer of BO.NAIL Soakable Top Gel to each nail surface of all four nails on one hand. Cure all four nails for 120 sec. UV / 30 sec. LED. Repeat on the other hand and finish with thumb application.
Step 6: If using BO.NAIL Soakable Top Gel or BO.NAIL Soakable Matte Top Gel it will be necessary to cleanse after curing. Saturate a gel sponge with BO.NAIL Gel Cleanser. With light pressure wipe away the top gel film, (this is the sticky inhibition layer). CAUTION: Do not re-wipe the nail with a used portion of the gel sponge, as it will redistribute the film causing dulling to the Top Gel. Use a clean saturated gel sponge for each finger. Tip: Wait with cleansing for about 1 minute after curing to let the nails “cool down” to get even more shine.
Removal – Bo. Soakable gel remover
Step 1: Have the client wash their hands with liquid soap and warm water. Towel dry hands and use BO.NAIL HygiSpray or BO.NAIL HygiGel.
Step 2: Remove the seal on each nail using a BO.NAIL Hygiene File 180 Grit. Saturate a Nail Foil with BO.NAIL Soakable Gel Remover and secure the foil firmly around the finger.
Step 3: Leave the Nail Foil on the finger for ten minutes. Using a twisting motion, pull the Nail Foil and product from the fingernail.
