Mornin everyone,

I got my try me kit of Fabric# yesterday and tried it out on my hand trainer.

i thought it was all really good and the finish at the end was lovely (even for me), but i've got a couple of questions that i could do with answering please.

1, After using the Blast activator spray it says to go over the entire surface of the nail with a soft file.

This done do i then clean the nail with anything before i apply the coat of Boost??

2, I've never used a resin that is not brush on before - how exactly do i apply Boost?? - is it to the entire nail or just the apex??

Sorry if these sound really silly questions.

I'm hoping to go on my conversion course in the near future and couldn't wait to start now - hence the questions

Any help greatly received

Em.xx

1. There is no need to clean the nail prior to applying Boost other than to dust any excess dust away if there is any.

2. Apply a small bead of Boost to zone 2. Brush over zone 1 and then from zone 3 over the entire surface. finish your strokes from the side walls to the center which will help to build a beautiful 'c' curve for you.
One of the biggest mistakes technicians make is to apply too much Boost thinking they can build shape faster. This will cause cracking. Better to apply 2-3 thinner coats as described above.

Read your instructions ... it is all there.

Hi there, thought I have a go at answering your questions....

I just brush off any dust particles, if i feel it is not enough then I dampen a nail wipe with scrub fresh and clean the nail that way, and I make sure the nail is dry again before I apply Boost .

I hope this answers your boost question,

Boost is a Resin which is activated by a Brush on....you put a drop of boost (lentil size) onto the nail near the cuticle then use the Brush On Blast 2.1 to activate this will sweeping the bead of boost over and around the nail...

If all kits are the same on Fabric then this should be shown in the lovely white and pink demo leafelt included in your pack.

I hope this helps you
