Acquarella is a system of products designed to work together. Proper preparation and application will give you the best results.
How it works…
The conditioning period helps to return moisture to dry, chemically abused nails. This conditioning period helps remove many oils and emollients found on the nail body that interfere with the adhesion of Acquarella Nail Polish. Do these steps after weeks of non-use or if conventional nail polish has been worn recently.
A little nail maintenance will help your application and improve the wear of Acquarella nail polish. We recommend filing and buffing your nails prior to using the conditioner. Filing helps to remove any splitting or other nail issues and let’s be honest, it makes them look better. Next comes buffing. Buffing is an important part of the process as there is no base coat or top coat, any nail surface imperfections are more visible. Additionally, a buffed nail surface allows for better adhesion of the Acquarella nail polish.
Three Day Nail Detox using Acquarella Conditioner
After buffing, make sure to remove any existing Conditioner using Acquarella Remover then re-apply two thin coats of conditioner. Buff nails only on the first day. This process “detoxifies” your nails from residual oils and emollients, thereby enhancing wear and adhesion. After the third day, you are ready for Acquarella Nail Polish.
This is not a traditional nail polish and that is a good thing. Water based nail polishes dry different in that they dry “top down” instead of “bottom up”. Effectively, it will dry to the touch quickly, while under the dried surface, it is still “wet”. That being said, once the polish is dry to the touch, it won’t rub off on your clothing or other fabrics. It does takes a while for the polish to completely “cure” and we recommend at least six (6) hours for this process to complete. To achieve this period with least stress on the polish, and you, we suggest applying Acquarella fifteen to twenty minutes before retiring in the evening. Following this procedure allows the polish to “cure” while you sleep for better wear. Be easy on your tips for the first twenty four hours after application for best overall performance.
