1. Start with clean, manicured tips and begin by applying a base coat. 2. Put on the first coat of polish by dotting at the bottom of the nails and then brushing the lacquer out towards the tip. Follow up with a second coat. 3. Gloss on a bright shine top coat and let it dry, or use a professional salon dryer spray for a quicker finish.
