Each box includes 504 tips in 12 sizes. Each tip is pre-etched for easier application and time saving. Apply Soft Gel Tips with IBD Builder Gels, Dual Builder Gels, and Soft Gel Adhesive. Soak off for removal.
SOFT GEL TIP PREP: 1. Size tip to fit nail. Make sure that tip covers entire nail bed from side to side. If you are in-between sizes, choose a larger size and file down to make the soft gel tip fit perfectly. 2. Apply a thin layer of IBD PowerBond to the inside of the soft gel tip. Only apply the length of the natural nail.
SOFT GEL TIP APPLICATION: 1. Push back overgrown cuticles and remove with a cuticle pusher. Use cuticle nippers to trim off excess. 2. Gently remove the shine from natural nail by using a fine nail file or buffer block. 3. Dust off the nail surface. 4. Apply IBD Dehydrate, followed by IBD PowerBond. 5. Apply a thin coat of IBD Building Gel / IBD Dual Builder Gel / IBD Gel Adhesive to the natural nail and cure for 30 seconds under LED lamp or 1 minute if using a UV lamp. 6. On the inside of the soft gel tip, apply a thin layer of IBD Building Gel / IBD Dual Builder Gel / IBD Gel Adhesive. Only apply the length of the natural nail. 7. Place the soft gel tip on the natural nail, lightly press down the tip starting from the cuticle to the free edge in order to push out any air bubbles between the natural nail and the soft gel tip. If you do not have enough product, remove the tip and add more. If there is too much product, wipe off the excess before moving on to step 8. 8. Keep applying pressure and flash cure under LED lamp for 15 seconds or 45 seconds if using UV lamp. 9. Once all of the nails are done, cure for a full 30 seconds under an LED lamp or 2 minutes if using a UV lamp. 10.
