What is Gel?

Gel is a nail enhancement that provides flexible strength for nails and come in a number of amazing colors! They cure quickly so you can get on with your day.  Just 30 seconds under an LED or 60 seconds under a UV nail lamp. They are longer lasting than air dry polish - up to 2-3 weeks - with shine that's out of this world.

I'm always adding new colors to the shop, so check back often.

One Step Gel Application
  1. Clean cuticles then shape and file the nail. Wipe off dust with alcohol.
  2. Apply a layer of One Step Gel, starting in the center, pushing gel close to cuticles, then back out to the free edge.  Clean any gel off the skin and flash cure for ~10-15 seconds depending on the lamp used.
  3. Apply a second layer of One Step Gel.  Clean any gel off the skin and fully cure for 30-60 seconds depending on the lamp used.

 Gel Removal

  1. File off the top layer of the gel.
  2. Soak nails in 100% acetone.

  4. Repeat step 2-3 until all gel has been removed.

* Do not pull or peel gel from nails.  This can cause damage to the natural nail.

Builder Gel Application with Nail Forms

  1. Clean cuticles then shape and file the nail. Wipe off dust with alcohol.
  2. Put on a nail form, apply a layer of Base Coat and cure for 30 seconds under an LED lamp or 60 seconds under a UV lamp.
  3. Using a generous amount, apply Builder Gel to the nail.  Float gel towards cuticle then extend to desired length, shaping the tip onto the form and picking up more gel if needed.  Cure for 30-60 seconds depending on the nail lamp used.
  4. Apply another layer of Builder Gel to the whole nail extending it out to the pre-built length. Then, build an apex by applying a generous amount down the center of the nail floating the edges out to blend with the sides. OPTIONAL: Hold nail upside down for a couple seconds to encourage the gel to flow towards the center creating a natural apex for strength. Cure for 30-60 seconds depending on the lamp used. Remove nail form.  Don’t worry if the edges look uneven.
  5. Apply a final layer to the entire nail and extension.  Fully cure 30-60 seconds.
  6. Wipe tacky layer with alcohol.  File and shape nails as desired and finish with Gel Top Coat, polish, gel color or dip powder.

Tips:

  • Builder Gel will remain wet and movable until it is flash or fully cured.  Flash cure ~10 seconds between building as needed.
  • While applying gel, lean the nail tip downward to keep the gel from flowing and pooling at the cuticle.

Builder Gel Removal

  1. File off the top layers of the Builder Gel.
  2. Soak nails in 100% acetone for 10-15 minutes.  Builder gel will not soften much or turn gummy like gels or dip. 
  3. Remove any lifted builder gel with a steel cuticle pusher or coarse file.
  4. Soak any remainder gel and repeat step 3 until all gel has been removed.

*Do not pull or peel off any nail enhancement.  It will cause damage to the natural nail.

Remover Gel Instructions - For Polish, Gel + Dip

  1. File off the top surface of the nail enhancement.
  2. Apply a layer of Remover Gel and time for 1 minute, then apply second layer and time another 2-3 minutes.
  3. Using a steel cuticle pusher, gently push off softened enhancement.
  4. Apply another layer of Remover Gel and time 1-3 minutes. Gently push off softened nail enhancement.  Repeat this step until all layers of product have been removed.
  5. Wash hands or wipe with alcohol to remove any remaining Remover Gel.

Tips:

  • The number of rounds needed to remove any nail enhancement can vary depending on how many layers of polish, gel or dip you used.  Typically polish and gel will come off in 1-2 rounds, while dip may take 3-4+ rounds.
  • Avoid contact with skin.  Wash thoroughly with soapy water to clean.
