To apply, you first need to use a bond polish to the whole nail to make sure the color sticks, followed by a base coat to 3/4 of the nail. Next, dip your nail into a primer-like natural powder, then do another coat of the bond. After that, you dip your nail into the powder color of your choice and tap off the excess powder, then apply another coat of the base, and do another dip into the powder. Finally, brush on one last coat of the base and let your nails air dry.
I've been getting my powder nails done at Tiffany Nails on the Post Rd in Rye (across from Jerry's) but most local nail places do the powder gel. It costs about the same as a regular gel manicure. I use color P38 (color numbers may vary), which is the closest to Ballet Slippers. Bon Weekend!!!!
