How to apply JUBLIA:

Your toenails should be clean and dry before you apply JUBLIA.

Step 2: Hold the bottle upside down directly over the affected toenail and allow the product to moisten the brush. By turning the bottle upside down, the entire brush will become wet with the drug solution. Apply one drop of JUBLIA onto the toenail. Do not squeeze the bottle or press/rub the brush firmly against the toenail while applying JUBLIA (See Figure B).

Step 3: For the big toenail, also apply a second drop to the end of the toenail by touching the tip of the moist brush to the end of the toenail (See Figure C). If needed, repeat step 2 to re-wet brush.

Step 4: Use the brush attached to the bottle to gently apply JUBLIA. The goal is to make sure that the entire toenail including the cuticle, folds of the skin next to the sides of the toenail, and underneath the nail are covered with the drug solution. (See Figure D). Pressing or rubbing firmly against the toenail while applying JUBLIA could cause brush deformation and over application of the drug solution.

Step 7: After applying JUBLIA to your affected toenails, place the cap on the bottle and screw it on tightly.
