- PREP NAILS:
- Always polish on clean nails, free of polish. Using a cuticle pusher or fingers, gently push back cuticles. Trim nails to liking and follow by filing nails as needed, always in 1 direction (file side to center).
- Using Terra's Soy Plant Based Polish Remover, remove all polish and follow by washing hands thoroughly with mild soap and water and dry with hand towel.
- Using the Simple Buffer Nail Block, gently buff nails to even out ridges and also remove any excess oil from nails (process of dehydrating nails).
- Wipe nails with dry towel or alcohol wipes to ensure all oil is removed.
- On prepped nails, apply your favorite Terra Base Polish (No. 19 or No. 20). Starting in the center of the nail, apply 1 thin coat of base from center + then on each side. Allow base coat to dry 100% before applying color.
- Roll your Terra color polish bottle prior to every use to activate color. After base coat is completely dry, apply a thin 1st coat of color starting from center + then on each side. Allow color to dry 100% before applying color (usually a few minutes). Repeat coats 2-3x (based on colors). Lighter colors and shears will need 3-4 coats (it will not be thick as they are very thin). Darker colors may need 2-3 coats.
- Once color has dried, seal your nails with your favorite top coat (No. 20 or No. 21 Super Gel) in the same way you applied the base coat. 1 coat should be sufficient for top coats. While nail is drying, use the Terra Edge Perfector Nail Clean Up Brush to clean up edges of polish by dipping the tip (tip only) of brush in the polish remover and gently cleaning up edges. Once polish has dried, apply the Terra Unscented 100% Natural Cuticle Oil around cuticle and nail bed for the perfect finish!
Individual How To per Nail Tool:
- Terra Unscented 100% Natural Cuticle Oil: On dry nails and hands, apply cuticle oil around cuticles and nail bed as needed. Massage oil into cuticle daily for extra soft cuticles.
- Terra Crystal Nail File: Gently file clean and dry nails from one side to the center and repeat as needed on each side. Clean file with dry cloth to maximize use.
- Terra Edge Perfector Nail Clean Up Brush: Dip tip (tip only) of brush in nail polish remover (Terra Soy Plant Based Polish Remover is recommended) and remove excess remover on a paper towel. Gently remove nail polish as needed - around cuticle, under nails and anywhere stray polish has landed and repeat as needed. Once complete, wash brush with warm water and mild soap and air dry to ensure longevity of brush.
- Terra Stainless Steel Flat Edge Nail Clipper (Large): Lift and rotate top lever. Carefully place fingernails or toenails in-between flat edge blades and trim to desired length (starting at corners and clipping toward center). Finish at clipping at center of nail to prevent nail splitting. It is recommended to not over trim and use nail file for final smoothing and shaping. Clean blade after every use and wipe clippers with alcohol wipes for sanitation. Please note that blades are sharp and should be used with caution.
- Terra Stainless Steel Cuticle Pusher: On clean nails and hands, moisturize cuticles with cuticle oil with an end goal of massaging and softening the cuticles. Clean around nail (and under the nail) with the thin tear shaped side. Using larger curved side, gently push cuticles back, starting in center and then on each side.
- Terra Simple Buffer Nail Block: Ensure nails are trimmed, filed, washed and 100% completely dry prior to use. On ready nails, gently buff the nail in one direction to remove any imperfections, while evening out edges of your nail plate and also removing excess nail oils and water. This is very imperative for the polish to last longer. Once complete, brush buffed nail particles off with towel and wipe nails with alcohol wipes to ensure nails are ready for polish. This step ensures that oils and any water is removed from nail, helping adhere polish to nails.
- Terra Natural Black Canvas Pouch: Keep all your favorite mani and pedi beauty tools in a beautiful, vegan black canvas pouch made by Terra Beauty Bars. Size: 8" wide by 6" high. Lined canvas material with black zipper.
