Video Tutorial

Restructura base: nail lengthening too short or broken, big toe
Monolith base: used as a base for the semi-permanent

Preparation of the nail

Accessories: Gloves - File - Nippers - Finisher block - Cuticle pusher - Pressed cotton pad - Disinfectant - FluidPro®

Let's put on the gloves and get started.

1.

We steam the client's tools and hands with disinfectant.

2.

We dry our hands well with a towel.

3.

With the nippers, we cut off the excess cuticles.

4.

We push the small cuticles along the perimeter of the nail, using the cuticle pusher or the orange stick.

5.

We use the file (side 180) to give the preferred shape to the nails.

6.

We take the finishing block and uniformly mattify the nail.

7.

Now with a cotton pad moistened with FluidPro, we clean the surface of the nail from dusty residues.

Application of the special base

Accessories: Base (restructura / monolith) - Top - Pressed cotton pad - Cleaner - FluidPro® - UV or LED lamp - Cuticle oil

8.

USE AS A BASE FOR SEMI-PERMANENT : Apply a THIN and HOMOGENEOUS layer of Base, being careful not to touch the cuticles.

9.

We catalyze in a UV lamp for 120 sec. (in LED lamp 60 sec.)

9.

Now, with a DRY pad we eliminate the dispersion released by the Base, passing it on the surface of the nail. Don't be afraid, let's do it decisively.

10.

USE AS A REPAIRER: Apply to the nail surface affected by depression, flaking or imperfection and work it with the brush supplied, creating the desired effect, then: smooth the surface by filling the depressed area; we recreate the damaged surface by applying it with the brush and leveling it.
Let's use it without application limits, with a special base there is no limit to the imagination!

12.

If you want to keep the original color of the special base , we are now ready to apply the Top. We make a homogeneous, thin layer and catalyze it in a UV lamp for 240 sec., That is 2 timer cycles (in a 120 sec. Led lamp).

If, on the other hand, we want to apply a color, from this point on we treat our nail following the advice on applying the Semi-permanent.

13.

We take a small square of pressed cotton, moisten with the Cleaner and clean the surface from the dispersion of the Top.

14.

At this point we can apply the cuticle oil, distributing a small amount on the perimeter of each nail. We gently massage our fingers and congratulations, we have finished our manicure with semi-permanent!

Useful tips

.

We take care not to leave any part of the nail shiny.

.

We always check against the light that the surface is completely opaque.

.

Attention, after completing this process we never touch the nail again for any reason, we could grease it again and this will create possible future sealing problems.

.

If used as a base for the Semipermanent , after catalyzing in the lamp, we eliminate the dispersion layer with a dry pad and apply the desired semi-permanent.

.

We pay attention to position the hand well, so that all the fingers are pointing uniformly under the beam of the bulbs. We don't bend our thumbs much but we try to stretch it out as best we can.

.

We must not be in a hurry to immediately see a completely covering effect, we finish all the steps well. If we dirty the cuticles or the skin, clean with the moistened FluidPro orange stick before catalyzing in the lamp.
