5. Remove excess dust from the nail plate
6. Apply one coat of Prep Step and allow to dry completely.
7. When applying a tip, wait to apply the primer until the tip application is complete.
8. When sculpting, apply two coats of ONL Primer to the nail plate and allow to dry completely.
• Helpful hints – When applying ONL Primer, be careful not to get primer on the cuticle. Before applying primer to the nail, wipe your brush on the sides (inside top) of your bottle, and dab lightly on a disposable towel. One brush load of primer is enough to treat all ten nails. Touch the brush to the centre of the nail plate and watch it spread towards the cuticle. Apply more only if necessary.
• If your client experiences a burning sensation due to overexposure to the primer, apply “Stop-It” for instant relief.
