Clean and prep nails. TREAT with one coat of Xtra 4 as a base coat. Polish nail at the half moon, keeping product off skin. 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 one top coat of Xtra 4 or Quicken. APPLY the appropriate Xtra 4 formula daily for 7 days to reseal and protect free edges. After one week, remove all polish with a non-acetone remover and BEGIN the steps again.
