How to Use Gel Polish


Part 1: Prepping Your Nails

Cut, File and shape your nails: You can create round, square, pointy, almond, or oval nails, depending on your preference.

Use cuticle remover: Use a cuticle stick to push back any skin off of your nail plate. Dipped a cotton ball in acetone and remove any remaining oil or debris from your nail.

Apply your base layer: Apply a very thin layer of your base coat to your nails. Thinner layer than you would with standard nail polish. Be careful and avoid getting the gel on your fingers. Cure the gel polish under a nail lamp (UV lamp for 1 min, LED lamp for 30 secs).

 

Part 2: Applying the Color (UV lamp for 2 mins, LED lamp for 30-60 secs)

Apply 2 thin layers: Once your base layer has dried completely, apply another extremely thin layer. Make sure to paint over the tip of your nail as well as over the surface to seal the gel and avoid chipping.

Cure each layer under a nail lamp (UV lamp for 2 mins, LED lamp for 30-60 secs).

Apply your top gel: Coat your nails completely in your top gel and cure the gel polish under a nail lamp (UV lamp for 1 min, LED lamp for 30 secs).

Wipe nails with rubbing alcohol to remove residue.

 

Part 3: Removing Gel Nails

File off the top layer: This will take away the shine. Only once the shine is removed can you move forward in removing the gel.

Avoid picking the polish off your nails. That can remove layers of your nail in the process, leaving them brittle and dry.

Cover cotton pad in acetone and wrap around each nail for about 10 minutes. Check if ready, if not, leave a few minutes more.

Use a cuticle stick to push the gel off your nail.

 

Part 4: Note on Nail Polish  

Too Thick?
Applying every thin coat is the key, make sure the brush doesn't have too much on it before starting the strokes.

 

Peel off easily?
1. Remember to cap the nail edge when we apply the color gel.
2. Remove the cuticle, trim the edge, polish your nails and make sure they are dry and clean.
3. We can not have the polish attached to skin or cuticle otherwise it will be easy to peel off.
4. Do not apply overmuch base coat or top coat and, the thinner, the better, or it will get the gel shrunk and peeled off.

Not dry?
Please check the wattage of your lamp. Are you only curing for 30 seconds?
We suggest:
Base coat cured for 30 secs.
Gel polishes each coat - 60 secs.
Topcoat - 60 secs.
Wipe with alcohol cotton ball.
