STEP 01: INSERT BIT.
Make sure the e-file is completely charged prior to use. The indicator light will turn from red to green when it is fully charged. When ready to use make sure the opening is free from dust and debris. Then, gently but firmly insert the included ceramic bit into the e-file as shown in the video. You should feel some resistance when the bit cannot go any further, and it is normal for the shaft of the bit to extend out from the e-file. Do not force the bit with excessive pressure and do not use bent or damaged bits. Turn on the e-file by hitting the F/R button once.
STEP 02: ETCH THE SURFACE.
Using a gentle touch make small holes in the Attain Strength layer as shown. Be careful to balance your hands to avoid applying too much pressure. The e-file will stop or slow down when too much pressure is applied. This is an intentional safety mechanism to avoid damaging the nail plate or skin.
STEP 03: APPLY REMOVAL WRAPS.
Apply a nail wrap wet with pure acetone (must be purchased separately) to the finger and allow it to sit for at least 7-10 minutes. Be sure to secure the wraps tightly around the finger to prevent evaporation. The wraps should be comfortable but secure.
STEP 04: REMOVE WRAPS AND CHECK PRODUCT.
After about 10 minutes of soak-off time remove the wraps and check your nails. If the product is stubborn and does not remove easily, file more product away with the nail file, remoisten wraps, and rewrap fingers for an additional 5-10 minutes. Cold hands, length of wear, and thickness of product can all make soak-off take longer. If the product is ready it will flake and lift up and can be easily removed with the cuticle pusher. Never use force or attempt to pry the product off as this will cause damage and thin your natural nail.
STEP 05: GENTLE BUFF.
Gently buff the nails as needed to smooth and refine. This should be done very sparingly to avoid removing natural nail layers.
STEP 06: WASH HANDS AND MOISTURIZE.
Wash your hands with soap and water to remove all acetone residue, dust, and debris. Then apply a moisturizing lotion or cuticle oil to rehydrate your skin and nails. Acetone does not damage nails or skin, but it can be drying.
