With a Nail Stamper you can create an amazing French Manicure in an easy way. Watch the video to discover how to get started! 

1. Always wash your hands before you start and prepare your nails with a mini manicure.

2. Take a PN Cleanser Wipe to carefully clean all nails.

3. Apply a small amount of PN Selfgel Prepper to all nails. Press the liquid into the nail with the application brush. Let this dry for a few seconds. There is no need to cure it under the Selfgel LED lamp.

4. Apply 1 layer of PN Selfgel Peelable Base on all nails. Let it dry for 30 seconds. There is no need to cure it under the Selfgel LED lamp.

5. Apply 2 layers of Selfgel Strawberry Cream and cure each layer under the Selfgel LED lamp for 30 seconds.

6. Then protect the colour with the PN Selfgel Finish and cure for 30 seconds under the Selfgel LED lamp.

7. Remove the sticky layer with a PN Cleanser Wipe to apply the nail art properly.

8. Use Selfgel Orange Soda and the stamp to apply the French Manicure. Make sure there is enough product on the stamp. Hold the stamp at a slight angle and place your nail against the stamp just below the colour. Move your finger gently upwards to create a nice edge on your nail. You can always rotate and adjust the stamp to make your design as tight as possible. You can correct the remaining colour with the Polish Corrector Pen (not cured!). To do this, work nail by nail and cure under the LED lamp for 30 seconds.

9. Finish your nail art by applying the PN Selfgel Finish over your design and cure for 30 seconds under the Selfgel LED lamp.

10. Remove the remaining sticky layer from all nails with a PN Cleanser Wipe to reveal the brilliant shine.
