STEP 01: PUSH BACK THE SKIN.
The goal is to gently expose the maximum amount of regrowth, create as uniform of a cuticle area shape as possible, and to remove all dried cuticle and debris. All of these goals will help your Attain service last longer and extend the time between maintenance.
STEP 02: ETCH THE REGROWTH AREA AND BLEND OLD PRODUCT.
Using the rougher side of the Attain Metal Nail File gently etch the surface of the natural nail regrowth as well as remove any bulk to blend the old product. Look for and remove any lifted areas by filing on the product just before the lifting.
STEP 03: APPLY A THIN BASE LAYER OF ATTAIN ADHESION.
Apply a thin layer of Attain Adhesion to the entire nail. Then cure in the Attain Nail Lamp for a full 60s cycle.
STEP 04: APPLY ATTAIN STRENGTH.
Start by applying a medium thick layer of Attain Adhesion over the entire nail. DO NOT CURE. Next, sprinkle a small amount of Attain Strength Powder over the entire wet nail surface. Tap the excess back into the jar. When you are finished cure the nail in the Attain Nail Lamp for a full 60s cycle.
STEP 05: CLEANSE THE NAIL.
Using a lint free Attain Wipe and Attain Clean cleanser clean the nail thoroughly to remove the tacky residue.
STEP 06: APPLY TOP COAT.
If you wish you can gently buff the nail to refine any lumps or rough texture and finish by cleansing the nail a second time with a clean wipe and cleanser to remove all dust and debris. If no buffing is needed you can skip this step and apply a thin layer of either Attain Matte or Attain Shine. Cure in the lamp for 60s and cleanse after curing to remove the tacky residue.
STEP 07: ENJOY STRENGTH FOR ANOTHER 2-4 WEEKS.
You have just completed an Attain Strength backfill! Your nails will be protected and reinforced. Repeat this process every 2-3 weeks.
