What You'll Need:

Step 1: Perform a Manicure:

  1. Wash your hands for 20-30 seconds and towel dry.
  2. Apply Cool Blue and gently rub into hands.
  3. If necessary, remove any existing nail color from the natural nail.
  4. Trim the length of the nails, if needed.
  5. Shape the free edge using a nail file.
  6. Gently use a cuticle pusher to loosen any cuticle from the nail plate.
  7. Gently guide a Curette along the nail plate to remove non-living tissue on the nail.
  8. If needed, use a nipper to carefully remove any pieces of skin or hangnails.
  9. Remove shine from the natural nail surface using a buffer in the direction of the natural nail growth. (OPTIONAL: you may also use an e-file)
  10. Use Scrubfresh and lint-free pads, cleanse the nail plate.

Step 2: Apply CND PLEXIGEL Bonder:

  1. Gently roll the bottle to blend formula.
  2. Apply a thin layer of CND PLEXIGEL Bonder to all nails, sealing the free edge after each application. Avoid painting the cuticle.
  3. Cure for 10 seconds in an LED lamp (if using the CND LED Lamp, use preset button 1). DO NOT REMOVE TOP FILM AFTER CURING.

Step 3: Apply CND PLEXIGEL Shaper:

  1. Apply a thin, even layer of CND PLEXIGEL Shaper to the natural nail, sealing the free edge after each application. 
  2. Apply to all nails and cure for one minute in LED lamp (if using the CND LED Lamp, use preset button 2B). DO NOT REMOVE TOP FILM AFTER CURING.
  3. Apply a second layer of Shaper to perfect the shape, using a light touch to float the gel over the nail. (Flash cure two nails at a time to prevent gel from running and use preset button 1)
  4. Apply Shaper to all five nails and cure for one minute using preset button 2B.

Step 4: Perfect The Shape (Optional):

  1. If you need to refine the nail shape, remove the top film with a cotton pad saturated in 99% Isopropyl Alcohol.
  2. Buff the surface of the nail to smooth out any imperfections using an 180-grit buffer (OPTIONAL: use a medium grit diamond bit at 1/2 speed with an e-file).
  3. Remove dust and cleanse the nail with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol.

Step 5: Apply CND PLEXIGEL Protector Top Coat:

  1. Gently roll bottle to blend formula.
  2. Apply the CND PLEXIGEL Protector Top Coat to all nails, sealing the free edge after application. 
  3. Cure for one minute in the CND Lamp using preset button 3.
  4. Lightly wipe to remove top film with a lint-free pad saturated in 99% Isopropyl Alcochol

Step 6: Add Color (Option For Gel Polish)

If using CND Shellac, skip Protector Top Coat and use CND Shellac Base Coat.

  1. Shake CND Shellac vigorously to blend
  2. Apply two thin layers of color coat to all nails.
  3. Cure each layer for one minute in the CND Lamp using preset button 2S.
