Nailbond - Instructions (UK)

NAIL TIPS - HOW TO AVOID POPPING OFF

STEP 1 - MATCH UP THE TIP

(A) You must match up the correct sized nail tip to your natural nail’s shape.

(B) Do this by sizing up the width from side-wall to side-wall.

IMPORTANT: Remember flat nails need flat tips. If the nail tip is too curved, or too small, it will increase the chance of popping off.

STEP 2 - PREP THE NAIL (Essential)

(A) Lightly buff the surface of the natural nail to remove surface shine to create the perfect bonding surface.

(B) Scrub the nail plate with NYK1 Prep&Shine or a dehydrator to remove all previous glues, polishes, residual extensions, moisture, dust, dirt and oil from the natural nail so that the nail tip will adhere with a strong bond.

DO NOT WASH HANDS WITH SOAP & WATER TO PREP NAIL

STEP 3 - APPLY NAILBOND TO BOTH

(A) Brush NailBond on the underside of the nail tip.

(B) Also brush NailBond around the tip of your natural nail.

DO NOT USE A DEHYDRATOR ON THE NAIL TIP

STEP 4 - APPLY AT 45° ANGLE

(A) Bring the nail tip to your natural nail at a 45° angle & (important) slowly push and press the tip down with your thumb to squeeze any air out of the bond. When finally flat against the nail, keep it pressed for a few seconds to create a strong bond.

(B) Press and hold the sides of the nail tip for a few seconds to allow the glue to fix the sides in place.

IMPORTANT: If you can see any white marks in the bond between the nail tip and the natural nail, this means there is trapped air. Any air bubbles will weaken the bond and your nails will pop off prematurely. You must remove the nail tip and try again!



FALSE NAILS - MAKE THEM LAST LONGER

STEP 1 - SIZE-UP THE FALSE NAILS

Size the false nail to fit the natural nail by placing the false nail over your nail’s surface. Make sure that the false nail fits into the cuticle nicely. The false nail surface must touch the entire surface of your natural nail.

IMPORTANT: Remember flat nails need flat tips (go up in size until the surfaces fit, cut away any excess at the sides). If the false nail is too curved or small, it may pop off.

STEP 2 - PREP THE NAIL (Essential)

(A) Lightly buff the surface of the natural nail to remove the surface shine and create the perfect bonding surface.

(B) Scrub the nail plate with NYK1 Prep&Shine or a dehydrator to remove all previous glues, polishes, residual extensions, moisture, dust, dirt and oil from the natural nail so that the nail tip will adhere with a strong bond.

DO NOT WASH HANDS WITH SOAP & WATER TO PREP NAIL

STEP 3 - COAT THE NAIL

Using the NailBond brush,

(A) Fully coat your own natural nail with NailBond.

(B) Coat half of the false nail with NailBond.

DO NOT USE A DEHYDRATOR ON THE FULL FALSE NAIL

STEP 4 - APPLY FALSE NAIL

(A) Place the false nail over your nail’s surface. Make sure that the false nail fits into the cuticle nicely. Hold down with thumb over the false nail and apply pressure for 30 seconds.

(B) To finish press down the sides to ensure that the false nail has bonded well.
