NATURAL NAIL PREPARATION (No Buffing)

1. P - Perform a manicure.

  • Have the client wash their hands with soap and water and towel dry.
  • Massage COOLBLUE™ Hand Cleanser into the client’s hands to cleanse skin.
  • Remove any existing nail color from the natural nail using an acetone-based polish remover (OFFLY FAST™ Moisturizing Remover) and a plastic-backed, lint-free pad.
  • If necessary, trim the length from each nail, using nail clippers.
  • Shape the nail's free edge with a soft grit Kanga™ File or Koala Buffer™.

For clients with minimal cuticle:

  • Gently slide a cuticle pusher along the nail plate to lift cuticle.
  • Use a curette to remove cuticle from the nail plate.
  • For clients with excessive cuticle build up:
  • Apply a small amount of CuticleAway™ evenly around the cuticle of each nail.
  • Gently slide a cuticle pusher along the nail plate to lift cuticle. Remove excess CuticleAway™.
  • Use a curette to remove cuticle from the nail plate.
  • Clean nails with soap, water and a brush.
  • Rinse nails thoroughly with running water at sink to remove all CuticleAway™ and soap residue from nail plate and skin folds.
  • If sink is unavailable, use a spray bottle with water to rinse the nail thoroughly. Dry nails with a towel.

Use a manicure nipper to carefully remove any loose pieces of skin or hangnails. Use a gentle touch and never cut skin as it can lead to infection.

2. E – Eliminate surface contaminants, dust, lint or skin and

    P – Purify nail plate layers.

  • Cleanse and temporarily dehydrate the nail plate with SCRUBFRESH™ Nail Surface Cleanser and a plasticbacked, lint-free pad. Pull back the skin and scrub the nail as if removing red nail polish.

COLOUR COAT PREPARATION

  1. Shake vigorously to blend.  
  2. Apply an extremely thin, translucent layer of CND™ SHELLAC LUXE™ Color Coat to free edge and nail surface (this layer will be slightly semi-sheer if applied correctly).
  3. Place the hand into the CND™ LED Lamp, ensuring fingers are on the finger pads and cure each hand for one minute (preset button 2S).* Do not remove the top film after removing the nails from the lamp.
  4. Apply a second thin layer to free edge and nail surface. The second layer will provide additional coverage and color.
  5. Cure each hand for one minute (preset button 2S) in the CND™ LED Lamp.* Do not remove the top film after removing the nails from the lamp.

TOP COAT APPLICATION

    For customized levels of protection and removal, utilize the variety of CND™ SHELLAC™ Top Coats over CND™ SHELLAC LUXE™ Color Coat.

    1. Shake to blend.

    2. Apply one thin layer of CND™ SHELLAC LUXE™ Top Coat to each free edge and nail surface.

    3. Cure each hand for one minute (preset button 3) in the CND™ LED Lamp.*

    4. Gently wipe the top film with a plastic-backed, lint-free pad or a cosmetic sponge saturated with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol.

    5. Condition the nails and surrounding soft tissue with SOLAROIL™ Nail & Cuticle Care and send a bottle home with the client for daily conditioning

CND™ SHELLAC LUXE™ Gel Polish Removal

    1. Have the client wash their hands with soap and water and towel dry.

    2. Massage COOLBLUE™ into the client’s hands to cleanse skin.

    3. Wrap all 10 fingers with CND™ Foil Remover Wraps.

    4. Set a timer for 60 seconds.

    Customize removal time based on the CND™ SHELLAC™ Top Coat used during application.

    5. Use the pad of the thumb to press firmly on the top of the nail. Massage and twist the CND™ Foil Remover Wrap from the nail while encasing the product within the wrap. If a significant amount of CND™ SHELLAC LUXE™ Color remains on the nail (due to extended wear or other unique situations), rewrap the nail and allow OFFLY FAST™ to penetrate one more minute.

    6. If necessary, gently slide off the top coat layer with an orangewood stick in the direction of nail plate growth. Be careful not to scrape the surface of the natural nail plate. As an alternative, a dry sponge may be used.

    7. Clean the nail using a plastic-backed, lint-free pad or a stiff manicure brush saturated with OFFLY FAST™.
