NSI's Attraction Pink Masque Nail Powder uses a unique blend of tri polymers to deliver adhesion, strength, and flexibility. The opaque powder is perfect for nail biters and other challenging clients because it hides imperfections and can create the illusion of longer nail beds when the smile line is extended. The powder is also color-stable and will not yellow.

1. Thoroughly prep the natural nail, and then apply the Elation Tip. Cut, file, and blend. Reapply Nail Pure Plus and Attract Primer liberally. Using Attraction Pink Masque Powder, start in zone 3 using a medium-wet mix ratio Place bead near, but not touching, the eponychium. Press from side to side to get coverage and then pull and brush the bead into zone 2 (until it has been thinned and has a grainy appearance).

2. Continue using a medium-wet mix Place another bead of Attraction Pink Masque Powder on the area of zone 2 that was thinned down and press the bead from side to side to get coverage. Pull and brush the bead into zone 1 until it has been thinned and has a grainy appearance.

3. Using Attraction Radiant White Powder, continue working with a medium- wet mix ratio. Place the bead in the middle of zone 1, creating your smile line away from the natural free edge line. Using the tip of the brush, lightly press from side to side to evenly distribute the product. By using gentle pressing, pushing, and guiding techniques, you can create deeper corners. Smooth down over the entire extension edge.

4. Overlay the entire enhancement with a thin layer of Attraction Totally Clear Powder, using a medium-wet mix ratio. File and shape with any NSI 180-grit file. Clean the nail using a Nail Wipe saturated with Cleanse. Finish the nail by applying Glaze ‘n Go, and cure for 90 seconds in any 9-watt UV lamp. Finally, condition the cuticle with Nurture Oil.
