Fierce League
1. Apply 2-3 coats of red gel polish. Allow to fully dry.
2. Trace along the outside of the nail with the peel-off cuticle guard.
3. Choose a pattern from the stencil template and apply a thick layer of white polish over it. Run the scraper that comes with the kit over the top of the polish layer to remove excess and expose the pattern underneath.
4. Quickly press the stamper on top of the polished stencil to transfer the pattern.
5. Evenly stamp the pattern onto the nail. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each nail.
6. Carefully peel away the cuticle guard.
7. Apply a layer of gel top coat and revel in the beauty of your holiday nail job!
