For best adhesion, prep nails using the OPI Nail Preparation Method.
Apply OPI Perfection Tips. With crisp smile lines and sharp corner points, Perfection quickly achieves a pink and white look, and the matte finish eliminates buffing prior to acrylic application.
After applying tips, apply one coat of Bondex or Bondex2 to the natural nail only, avoiding skin contact. Allow to dry completely.
For Clarité application: apply Clarité Curing Resin immediately after sculpting each nail, making sure entire nail is covered. Wipe Curing Resin brush out on an Expert Touch Nail Wipe before returning it to the bottle.
Bead 1 overlays the entire nail.
Apply a large bead of product at the stress area.
Hold brush at a 45° angle. Push product back to cover the nail, leaving a small margin from the cuticle and sidewalls.
Drop brush to a -45° angle and stroke product out leaving it thicker at the stress area and thinner at the free edge. Stroke forward to complete the application. File and finish nails.
