Applying Your Gel

TIPS FOR GETTING STARTED

  • Please note that the curing time varies per individual color.
  • For thick coats, to ensure all layers are dry, please consider curing twice.
  • Fast strokes seem to work best when applying. You will develop your own personal technique and this may vary depending on the color.
  • If you’re seeing brush strokes in the polish after application, try to use the tip of the brush to lightly maneuver the polish, instead. The gel bonds very quickly with itself and can create a seamless result if done this way.
  • Due to the gel being sensitive to light, always make sure to put the cap back on in-between applications and curing.

TRADITIONAL BRUSH

Depending on the color you have and your individual skill in regards to painting your nails, this traditional technique may be perfect for you and leave you with stunning results.

 

How it works:

After buffing your nails, gently press the tube to release a small dot of polish on your nail bed near the cuticle. Simply brush the polish starting from the base, upwards towards the left and then again towards the right.

Once the coverage appears even, cure your nails with our cordless nail lamp. Apply additional coats if necessary.


THE FLOATING BRUSH

This particular technique is exceptionally similar to the one above. The only difference between this and the "traditional brush" is that the brushstroke is applied with very little pressure.

 

How it works:

After buffing your nails, gently press the tube to release a small dot of polish on your nail bed near the cuticle. Instead of pressing down on the nail and stroking the polish upwards from the base to the tip (as you usually would), you're going to take the tip of the brush and with very little pressure brush the polish upwards.

If your application is uneven, allow the gel to settle (you'll find that the formulation bonds with itself rather quickly), or wipe off with a cotton ball and acetone (or alcohol) and begin again.

* The great thing bout gel polish is that it doesn't cure without the UV/LED light.


THE MANEUVER TECHNIQUE

If you've tried both techniques above and are still getting an uneven or streaky finish, this technique is for you. Because our formulation bonds so quickly with itself, you're able to "maneuver" the gel polish around where it's needed.

 

How it works:

After buffing your nails, gently press the tube to release a small dot of polish on your nail bed near the cuticle. Once the gel has hit the nail, you're going to simply move the polish ( very lightly) with the tip of the brush up and then around the nail. The main difference between this technique and the one above is that instead of "stroking" the nail, you're just pushing the polish where it needs to be.

To fill in any uneven areas or areas needing to be more saturated, simply maneuver the polish backwards ( near the cuticle) with the tip and watch as it bonds together.

Allow the gel to settle (you'll find that the formulation bonds with itself rather quickly) and then cure. If you're unhappy with your application simply wipe off with a cotton ball and acetone (or alcohol) and begin again.
