WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SLICKPOUR AND THE COMPETITION?


HYGIENIC AND SANITARY SYSTEM: OTHER BRANDS DIP, BUT WITH SLICKPOUR,  WE ARE A SANITARY OPTION, WHICH IS WHY WE POUR. THIS RESULTS IN NO CONTAMINATION OF PRODUCT IN THE JARS (EX: IF SOMEONE HAS A CUT ON THEIR FINGER AND THEY DIP, IT CONTAMINATES THE POWDER).

YOUNG NAILS FOCUSES ON EDUCATING SLICKPOUR POWDER COATING IN THE MOST EFFICIENT, HYGIENIC, AND SANITARY WAY POSSIBLE.


STEP BY STEP

                  
                   

START A SLICKPOUR SERVICE BY PREPPING THE POWDER COMPONENTS. PLACE THREE OR FOUR GENEROUS SCOOPS OF SLICKPOUR COLOR POWDER INTO A GLASS DAMPEN DISH. NEST THE DAMPEN DISH INTO THE CATCH ALL CUP, DESIGNED TO KEEP THINGS NEAT BY CATCHING ANY EXCESS POWDER IN THE CUP. CLEAN UP IS THAT EASY.

                   

PREP ALL TEN NAILS BY REMOVING SHINE USING A MEDIUM GRIT ARBOR BAND OR FILE. REMOVE DUST AND OILS FROM ALL TEN NAILS WITH A LINT FREE WIPE SATURATED WITH YOUNG NAILS SWIPE. NOW BRUSH ON SLICKPOUR PREP ACROSS ALL TEN NAILS.

                   
                   

WORKING ONE NAIL AT A TIME, APPLY SLICKPOUR BASE FORTIFIED WITH VITAMIN E AND CALCIUM. TAKE A SCOOP OF SLICKPOUR COLOR POWDER, AND POUR IT OVER THE NAIL BY QUICKLY TAPPING THE SIDE OF YOUR POURING SPOON. TAKE A COUPLE SCOOPS AS NECESSARY TO COVER THE ENTIRE NAIL. ONCE YOU ARE FINISHED WITH THE TENTH NAIL, USE A SMALL MAKEUP BRUSH TO BRUSH OFF THE EXCESS POWDER BEFORE MOVING ON THE THE NEXT STEP.

                   
                  

WORKING ONE NAIL AT A TIME, APPLY A SECOND COAT OF SLICKPOUR BASE. THEN POUR A SECOND LAYER OF SLICKPOUR COLOR POWDER OVER THE NAIL USING THE SAME POURING TECHNIQUE. TAKE A COUPLE SCOOPS AS NECESSARY TO COVER THE ENTIRE NAIL. ONCE YOU ARE FINISHED WITH THE TENTH NAIL, USE A SMALL MAKEUP BRUSH TO BRUSH OFF THE EXCESS POWDER BEFORE MOVING ON THE NEXT STEP.

                  
                   

APPLY A SECOND COAT OF SLICKPOUR ACTIVATOR TO ALL TEN NAILS. USE A LINT FREE WIPE TO RUB ACTIVATOR INTO THE NAIL.

                   
                   

IMMEDIATELY APPLY SLICKPOUR TOP ACROSS ALL TEN NAILS. CLEAN BRUSH AFTER EACH NAIL BY WIPING EXCESS ON A LINT FREE WIPE BEFORE DIPPING BACK INTO THE BOTTLE. THIS WILL PREVENT THE BRUSH FROM GUMMING UP. APPLY A SECOND AND FINAL COAT OF SLICKPOUR TOP ACROSS ALL TEN NAILS. ALLOW TO AIR DRY A MINIMUM OF FIVE MINUTES AND ENJOY YOUR SLICKPOUR POWDER COATING NAIL SERVICE.


FQA

Q: WHY DO MY NAILS LOOK DULL AFTER THE SERVICE? 
A:  THERE ARE THREE POTENTIAL REASONS:
     1. YOU APPLIED TOP COAT ONLY ONCE. MAKE SURE YOU APPLY THE TOP COAT TWICE.
     2. YOU ARE NOT WIPING YOUR TOP COAT BRUSH ON A LINT FREE WIPE BETWEEN APPLICATION OF EACH NAIL. IF YOU DONOT, THE BRUSH CAN START TO GUM UP AFTER MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS, WHICH CAN RESULT IN A DULL NAIL. 
     3. YOU TOUCHED IT BEFORE IT WAS DRY. AFTER THE 2ND APPLICATION OF TOP COAT, ALLOW 5 MINUTES TO DRY. 


Q: WHY AM I HAVING PROBLEMS WITH APPLYING BASE OR TOP AFTER 3 OR 4 SERVICES?
A: AFTER 1 OR 2 SERVICES IT IS RECOMMENDED TO CLEAN YOUR BRUSHES USING ACETONE OR CHANGE OUT YOUR BRUSH USING THE BRUSH REFILL PACK. THIS IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE BRUSH CAN HAVE A BUILD-UP OF PRODUCT AFTER MULTIPLE SERVICES. 


Q: WHY IS MY BASE OR TOP BRUSH GUMMING UP DURING APPLICATION?
A: THIS IS FROM PRODUCT STARTING TO DRY ON THE BRUSH. YOU CAN CLEAN YOUR BRUSH USING ACETONE OR CHANGE OUT YOUR BRUSH USING THE BRUSH REFILL PACK.


Q: WHY AM I NOT GETTING GOOD COVERAGE WHEN I POUR THE POWDER?
A: USUALLY IT IS BECAUSE THE BASE COAT HAS BEEN APPLIED TOO THIN. TRY APPLYING A THICKER COAT OF BASE. ALSO, MAKE SURE YOU ARE WORKING ON ONE NAIL AT A TIME. FOR EXAMPLE: APPLY BASE, POUR POWDER, THEN MOVE ON TO THE NEXT NAIL. 


Q: WHY IS MY POWDER APPLICATION LUMPY?
A: DON'T DUMP THE POWDER ON THE NAIL. TOO HEAVY OF A POUR WILL LEAD TO LUMPS OF POWDER ON THE NAIL. INSTEAD, QUICK, LIGHT TAPS ON THE METAL SPOON WILL EVENLY DISPERSE THE POWDER ON THE NAIL, RESULTING IN EVEN COVERAGE.


Q: WHY IS MY TOP COAT APPLICATION NOT SMOOTH AND SHINY? (ORANGE PEEL LOOK)
A: THERE ARE THREE POTENTIAL REASONS: 
     1. YOU APPLIED TOP COAT ONLY ONCE. MAKE SURE YOU APPLY THE TOP COAT TWICE.
     2. THE TOP COAT NEEDS TO AIR DRY FOR 5 MINUTES. DO NOT TOUCH OR APPLY ACTIVATOR TO THE TOP COAT.
     3. THE TOP COAT MIGHT BE APPLIED TOO THIN. TRY AND APPLYING A THICKER COAT OF TOP. 


Q: WHY ARE MY NAILS NOT STAYING ON OR LIFTING?
A: MAKE SURE YOU ARE PREPPING THE NAILS WITH A MEDIUM GRIT FILE. ALSO IT IS IMPORTANT TO CLEANSE THE NAIL OF OIL AND CONTAMINANTS WITH YOUNG NAILS SWIPE BEFORE STEP-1 APPLICATION. FINALLY, MAKE SURE THE PRODUCT IS NOT RUNNING ONTO THE SKIN FROM THE NAIL PLATE, WHICH CAN CAUSE LIFTING. 


Q: WHY AM I HAVING PROBLEMS REMOVING SLICKPOUR? I SOAKED FOR THE TIME SUGGESTED AND IT IS STILL NOT COMING OFF?
A: MAKE SURE TO REMOVE THE SHINE WITH A MEDIUM GRIT FILE. LEAVE THE NAILS WRAPPED WITH A COTTON BALL SATURATED WITH ACETONE FOR AT LEAST 10 MINUTES. NEXT, REMOVE ONE NAIL AT A TIME, OR THE PRODUCT CAN RE-HARDEN. IF ANY PRODUCT REMAINS, USE A COTTON BALL OR A LINT FREE NAIL WIPE SATURATED WITH ACETONE AND RUB THE REMAINING PRODUCT OFF AND LIGHTLY BUFF.
