Clean and prime nails. Treat with one coat of the Nail Tek formulation. Begin at the half moon, stroking toward the end of the nail. Be sure to keep all nail products away from the cuticle and skin as they may cause dryness. Color with two coats of your favorite shade of nail polish. Protect with two top coats of Nail Tek. Apply daily as a top coat over polish. After one week, remove all polish with a non-acetone remover and begin the steps again.
