How to properly apply gel polish?

Have you always dreamed of doing your gel manicure at home? Here is a tutorial that explains how to use gel polish which is baked with a UV lamp. You will see that the application of gel polish is very easy.

Here are the steps:

  • Prepare your nail. Push back your cuticles, file, use a buffing block to remove the shine from your nail.
  • Apply the Base coat in a very thin layer, first sealing the edge of the nail.
  • Cook for 10 seconds under an LED lamp.
  • Use a dry, lint-free cotton pad to make the nail sticky and adherent.
  • As with the base, apply the color in a very thin layer starting at the edge of the nail.
  • Cook for 30 seconds under an 18W LED lamp or 2 minutes under a 36W UV lamp.
  • Apply a 2nd coat, without sealing the edge of the nail and bake again.
  • Apply a thin layer of Top Coat and cook for 30 seconds.
  • To remove the sticky effect of the top coat, use a lint-free cotton pad soaked in 99.9% alcohol, without rubbing.
