4. P - Purify nail plate layers

a. Thoroughly cleanse and temporarily dehydrate the nail plate layers with SCRUBFRESH using a lint-free, plastic-backed pad. Gently pull lateral folds back and scrub thoroughly to be sure all areas of the nail are completely clean.


Step 2: Apply BRISA Bond

1. Apply one thin layer of BRISA Bond to the natural nail plate of 2-3 nails at a time, ensuring that the brush has enough liquid to thoroughly and evenly cover each nail. Repeat this step until all nails are thoroughly and evenly coated.

Remember: When applying BRISA Bond, do not touch the skin or allow the product to flood the cuticle area.

2. Apply to five nails and cure each hand for 10 seconds (preset button 1) in the CND LED LAMP.

 

Step 3: Create a Base Layer (optional)

*This step will ensure proper adhesion and help prevent service breakdown. Implement when needed.

1. Apply a thin to medium layer of BRISA Clear or Pure Pink - Sheer Sculpting Gel to the natural nail.

 2. Apply to five nails and cure each hand for one minute (preset button 2B) in the CND LED Lamp. DO NOT REMOVE THE TOP FILM AFTER REMOVING NAILS FROM THE LAMP.


Step 4: Zones 1, 2 & 3 - Smile Line, Apex, Upper Arch and Cuticle Area

 1. Place a scoop of BRISA Gel onto the center of the nail (Zone 2) and guide the product from side to side, keeping the bulk of the gel in the vertical center of the nail. Brush a thin, even layer of gel toward extension edge (Zone 1). Then encase the extension edge to ensure long wear.

2. Gently ease the gel back toward the cuticle area (Zone 3), leaving a tiny free cuticle margin.

3. Apply to five nails and cure each hand for one minute (preset button 2B) in the CND LED Lamp. DO NOT REMOVE THE TOP FILM AFTER REMOVING NAILS FROM THE LAMP.


Step 5: Perfect the Shape (optional)

1. Apply a thin layer of BRISA Clear Sculpting Gel over the entire nail to perfect the shape. 

2. Fill in low spots by taking a tiny scoop onto your brush. Touch the product to one side of the low spot and lift up to create a thin strand of product. Pull this strand of gel across the nail and touch to the other side. Lift off, and allow the gel to self-level, filling in the low spot. 

3. Apply to five nails and cure each hand for one minute (preset button 2B) in the CND LED Lamp.


Step 6: Shape and Define

3. Smooth the surface with a Boomerang Padded File, making sure to remove all shine.

4. Remove any dust with a disinfected brush and a plastic-backed pad saturated with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol.


Step 7: Creating a Smile Line With BRISA Paint

1. Remove brush from bottle and wipe excess gel from back of brush by dragging along the neck of the bottle.

2. Paint on smile line consistent with polishing French Manicure application techniques.

3. Detail the smile line with a Gel Flat Oval Brush cleansed with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol.

4. Apply to five nails and cure each hand for one minute (preset button 2B) in the CND LED Lamp. DO NOT REMOVE THE TOP FILM AFTER REMOVING THE NAILS FROM THE LAMP.
