Tips for the Perfect Gel Polish Manicure


To ensure your gel polish manicure looks its best and lasts as long as possible, remember to follow our tips:

Prep Your Nails: Start with clean, dry nails. Push back cuticles and lightly buff the surface of your nails to help the gel polish adhere better.

Base Coat: Apply our base coat to protect your natural nails and provide a smooth surface for the polish.

Thin Layers: Apply thin layers of gel polish, curing each layer under the UV or LED lamp. This helps prevent the polish from lifting or peeling.
