1. Create an extension using gel.

2. Choose the part of the nail film you want to use for your design and cut the desired shape using the Pro Edge craft knife and light pressure.

3. Slip the tip of the craft knife blade under the film to lift and separate the nail art film from the backing sheet.

4. Lay the nail art film on the nail using light pressure. Slide the blade out from under the nail film and smooth out the film on the nail using your fingertip. Remove any excess film from the sides of the tip using a crystal file and downward strokes.

5. Apply your favorite gel top coat and cure.

6. Repeat to lock and seal the design.
