If there will be any broken or split nails (which are most unlikely to happen), you can just cover it with this lightweight overlay of powder and resin.

1. Prepare Your Nails
Just like when you do your nails with a regular polish, you will also need to have the surface of your nails properly cleaned and cut before the color is applied to them. Have any hangnails trimmed and those nail cuticles pushed gently to uncover portions of the lunula which might have been buried in your cuticle as the nail grows.
If there is an old polish on your nails, you need to make sure that it is completely removed with a non-acetone polish remover on a lint-free pad. Allow new nail growth to show as this will help extend the life of your manicure. Use a cuticle pusher to gently push the cuticles slightly back from your nails. You may also remove any excess cuticle that seems to be sticking up with a cuticle trimmer or a scraper.
