Two Everlasting French kits were selected. Everlasting French Pearl was featured. The other kit selected was Everlasting French Design.
The difference with Everlasting French Pearl is that Pearl is not a bright white compared to their other Everlasting French full cover nails. The Pearl has a more subtle look to it. The packaging is changing from the white with red accent to a Cabernet color.
How to Apply the Nails:
- Put a cloth down before applying the nails to catch any glue that might drip out.
- Line up the nails according to the sizes you select.
- Have manicure stick (that comes with the kit) handy to remove any excess glue that seeps out from the sides of the nails.
- Clean natural nails with acetone
- Apply glue to artificial nail. BE GENEROUS <<<That was stressed over and over. Be generous with the glue. The more glue, the better the nail will adhere and hold, and eliminate air bubbles.
- Apply glue to natural nail.
- Starting at cuticle, place artificial nail onto natural nail. Hold by the tab of the nail (if the nail comes with a tab) for about 10 seconds. Press gently on nail bed if you feel you must. But it doesn't seem to be necessary because the glue is drying quickly together. Pressing hard on the nail bed can cause air bubbles because you are squeezing the glue out the sides.
- Either wait to remove all the tabs after all the nails or glued, or wait until next nail is glued, then go back to nail before that one and bend the tab off. Do not twist the tab off. Try not to jar the nail too much, while the glue drying completely.

Using a generous amount of glue on the artificial nail, and the natural nail, not pressing the nail bed, and allowing the glue to dry before removing the tabs seems to be the key to avoiding air bubbles.
