- 4 Dipping Powders of your choice


Step 1

Begin by prepping your nails. Start by pushing back your cuticles to remove old tissue on the nail and file your nail into shape with the file and also buff the surface.

Step 2

Now apply the basecoat and spread it on the nail. While applying the basecoat, make sure that you apply a thin layer so that the application is smooth and beautiful.

Step 3

For the French effect, we recommend using the Girly Pink Dipping Powder as a base and the Snow White Dipping Powder for the tip of the nail.
First, dip only the tip of your nail into the white powder and carefully tap off the excess powder. Then dip your fingernail directly into the pink powder and gently tap off the excess. Use also the gentle brush, in order to free your finger evenly from the powder remainders.
Dip your nails one by one into the Natural Dip Powder (Base Powder).

Step 4

Repeat step 2 and 3 if you are not yet satisfied with the French effect.
Usually this step is not necessary, because the effect will only really appear after the Activator application and filing.

Step 5

Now use the Activator from your Dip Powder Starter Kit. Apply the Activator to your nails. The layer must dry for two minutes on your nails.

Step 6

Now use the file and file your nails to the right shape and nail surface to the right thickness.

Step 7

Apply the activator once again and leave it on.

Step 8

Finally, use the Doonails Topcoat. Apply a thin coat and let it dry for two minutes too!

Step 9

Use a second coat of the topcoat and let it work again.

Step 10

Now apply a good cuticle oil to your cuticles and rub it in! Doonails Nail and Cuticle Oil
