Shape the natural nail and gently remove the shine using a nail file such as our NSI Nail Buffer 180/240 Grit 


Step 2

Clean the nails with Nail Wipes saturated with NSI Cleanser or a Nail Cleanser liquid.


Step 3

Size all 10 Soft Gel Tips that fit your nails correctly before beginning application, ensuring a close fit side to side, covering the nail contours. For the best fit, apply a medium pressure over the nail to check the contact area and contours of the tips.


Step 4

Apply Dehydrator Bottle to all your natural nails.


Step 5

For the best adhesion, apply a Primer Bottle to the underside of the Soft Gel Tip that will be in contact with your natural nails. Also, apply a Primer Bottle on your natural nails.


Step 6

Apply the Press On Tips Gel Adhesive to the Soft Gel Tip contact area which is the underside of the Soft Gel Tip.


Place the Soft Gel Tip onto the nail using a rolling motion for bubble-free application.

Start firmly from the cuticle area with constant pressure to the free edge.

Ensure a close fit side to side completely covering the nail contours.

If air bubbles are present, remove and reapply.


Step 7

Flash cure for 5 seconds under a LED/UV Nail Light, holding firmly the Soft Gel Tip in place to maintain a good seal. Repeat on the other fingers to complete 1 full hand.


Step 8

Place your hand into the LED/UV Lamp and cure all 5 fingers for 60 seconds.


Step 9

Refine the free edges and contours of the nails if needed using the NSI Endurance Nail Buffer 180/240 Grit and gently buff the surface of the nail tips.


Cleanse the nails with NSI Cleanse.
