KolorsbyK 10 Step Guide For the Perfect Manicure at Home!



Step 1: Remove Polish and Oils.

Eliminate spills and smudges by positioning your arms and tools on a flat, protected surface. We recommend KolorsbyK Acetone FREE nail polish remover. Wash hands afterward.

Step 2: Clip and File.

Clip nails first, if necessary. Then file to get your tips square, round or somewhere in between. Buff tops and sides of nails lightly with a nail buffer to create a smooth surface.

Step 3: Push back your cuticles.

Soften cuticles with oil or lotion and then push back gently with a cuticle stick. *IMPORTANT* Your cuticles protect your nails from bacteria and keep them soft, so avoid cutting them.

Step 4: Exfoliate your hands.

Exfoliate hands, wrists and forearms with a hand scrub that eliminates dead skin cells and replenishes moisture. Use a nailbrush to clean under nails. Wash hands afterward and dry them thoroughly.

Step 5: Moisturize your hands.

Moisturize now to avoid smudging almost-dry nail polish later. Take the opportunity to give yourself a mini hand massage—just because you're not at the spa doesn't mean you can't relax! To finish, swipe each nail with nail polish remover.

Step 6: Apply KolorsbyK base coat.

Apply base coat to hydrate and protect nails and prevent chipping. We recommend you wait at least two minutes between each polish coat, starting with the base coat.

Step 7: Apply the first coat of KolorsbyK nail polish.

Now for the fun part! Apply a coat of your favorite or newest KolorsbyK Kolor! Be sure to get the brush all the way down to the cuticle and into the corners of the nail. Maximum coverage on the first coat makes the second coat a breeze. *Drip Drip*

Step 8: Apply the second coat of KolorsbyK nail polish.

After two minutes, apply the second coat of KolorsbyK nail polish. Glitter and Sheer Kolors may require third coats for full coverage.

Step 9: Apply KolorsbyK topcoat.

The topcoat protects your manicure from chipping and adds shine to nails. 

Step 10: Clean up edges and let your nails dry.

Clean up any mistakes or wobbly edges by using a q-tip dipped in nail polish remover around the edge of your cuticle.  Let nails dry an additional five-ten minutes, and—JUST LIKE THAT—perfect nails…at home! OKUUUUUR!
