The manicure manual contains 5 steps.

The first step. First of all you have to prepare the natural nail plate. Cover the surface using E.MiLac Base gel by 1-2 layers. The base should be dried in a lamp. Using the CCFL or LED lamp, it is necessary to dry only 30 seconds in the lamp. If you are using UV, then dry 2 minutes.

The second step. This stage has different options which depend on whether you are working with natural or artificial surface:
  1. If you are doing a design on natural nails, then cover it with EMiLac 040 Tender Powder and dry it.
  2. If you are doing a design on artificial plates, you should use the gel paints. Do not forget to dry the coated surface.

The third step.
