12-c. Shine the nail with the T.T. Super Soft Shiner

12. Buff -using the T.T. Perfume Scented Cuticle Oil and the T.T. Clean Finish Buffer file. To shine the nail, use the Tammy Taylor Super Soft Shiner.

13. Wash hands - Squirt a small amount of the T.T. fragrant shampoo (available in Peach, Mango, Pineapple and Signature fragrances) on a manicure brush and hand it to the client to clean their hands and nails.

Also, a nice touch and a great way to improve retail sales, is to squirt T.T. Peach Exfoliating Scrub in their hands and have them scrub them together, then rinse. This leaves their hands soft and smooth.

14. Polish - using A-Coat then Z-Coat. Make sure the client knows how to take care of her Pink & White Acrylic nails using the T.T. Maintenance kit.

Note: Use the A-Coat to protect the acrylic from yellowing, then put on Z-Coat to protect the A-Coat from getting sticky in the sun.
