- At the first stage of applying gel polish, you need to give the nail the necessary shape, then align the free edges of the nail plate and thoroughly clean it of dust. Before this procedure, you can do a manicure, if creams and oils were used during the work, be sure to clean your nails from them with special products . The main thing to do before applying gel polish is to remove the cuticle from the nail plate with an orange stick or remover so that it does not exfoliate after application.
- Remove the upper keratin layer from the nail plate. In most cases, a coarse-grained buff is used for this. It is worth remembering that when using a buff, we need to make the nail matte, removing the gloss from the nail quite a bit. Do not overdo it, because removing a thick layer can harm the nail plate.
- The third stage is the application of the base gel . Before covering the nail with a base, it is advisable to cover it with a primer . It is used for more reliable adhesion of the base gel to the nail plate. The primer dries in air for 1 minute; when applied, it should not flow under the cuticle. Then we proceed to the procedure for applying the base gel polish. What is it for? Base - protects the nail plate from colored pigments that are present in the gel polish itself, which helps to preserve the natural light of the nail after removing this material. The base gel is applied in a thin layer across the entire width of the nail plate. Then the nail is placed in a lamp to dry.
- The fourth step is to apply colored gel polish . Depending on what color you want to get at the end of the procedure, the varnish is applied in 1 or 2 layers. All applied layers must be made thin in order to avoid the appearance of bubbles, waves on the surface of the nail. After applying the gel polish, the nails are sent to the UV lamp for 2 minutes.
- The last step is to cover the nail top . It is needed to fix our coating and give shine to the nails. It is applied in a thicker layer than previous products. After using it, the nail is again sent to the gel polish drying lamp for 2 minutes . At the end of the procedure, the sticky layer is removed with a special liquid .
