Nail preparation:

  3. Clean off any dust on the nail surface using your cleanser . Let dry.

  4. Select the right size of American Capsules based on nail shape and finger size. Make sure the sides of the capsule cover both sides of the nail. This step is essential for the success of your installation.

  6. Dust the inside of the capsule so as not to create detachments.

  7. Apply the primer.
