Apply your chosen prescriptive base coat, try Recovery for Brittle Nails. Paint with a generous amount of nail polish on the brush and use as many long strokes as you need for perfect coverage. Finish each coat by brushing across the free edge (tip) of the nail to seal it. Follow with the No Shine Matte Finish for a velvety finish. Apply Nourish when cuticles feel dry and need a hydration boost.
Prepare your nails for painting by scrubbing them with a nail brush dipped in warm water and Hand & Body Bath, and dry thoroughly. This will ensure a clean surface, free of any traces of nail polish remover or oil that could lift your paint.
