Color Dip Removal:

  1. Buff off top layer using the RCM Groom Buffer, to break the seal on the top coat.
  2. Place an RCM FOIL WRAP saturated with ERASE onto the nail.
  3. Wrap fingertip tightly and let set for 15-20 minutes
  4. Remove FOIL WRAP by squeezing the nail and pulling. Most of the product should come off inside the foil.

  6. Lightly buff the surface of the nail as needed.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Apply thin layer of base coat to nail (thick application can cause lumps).
  • Dip prepped nail directly into color jar at a 45° angle.
  • Do not twist, swirl, stir nail while dipping, this can cause lumps.
  • When applying a dark or neon color, use Color Dip's Sheer Base Powder as the 1st step of dipping.
  • If you have any bare spots in color or want to make color more intense, apply third coat.
  • If excess base or top coat gets on skin/cuticle, quickly remove it with an orange wood stick before dipping into powder.
