Can You Put Nail Polish Over Strengthener?

Written by Tara

Can you use nail hardener under gel polish? Yes! This is our favourite way to use Hard Gel. Simply apply your Base Coat, then 1-2 coats of Hard Gel.

Nail Envy works best to strengthen nails when it is used as a base coat in contact with the natural nail. However, it can also be used as a top coat over nail polish. A number of factors can affect the condition and treatment of nails, such as existing medical conditions, medications, or allergies.

Generally How can I strengthen my nails with gel polish? To fill in the gaps, soak nails in vitamin e oil the night before a gel manicure and after removal. This will help protect your natural nails from damage incurred by gel polish as well as speed up recovery time post lacquer. Also, use a cuticle oil every single day (even when nails are naked.)

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

How do I protect my nails before gel polish?

Before getting a gel manicure, apply a broad-spectrum, water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to your hands to prevent skin cancer and premature skin aging. This will help protect your skin from the ultraviolet radiation used to seal gel nail polish to the nail.

Can you put builder gel under gel polish?

You can paint gel polish over the natural nail or over the top of your builder gel โ€“ just make sure you stay within the same gel system brand.

Is a nail strengthener a base coat?

I apply it as a base coat before nail lacquer. It dries quickly and actually strengthens your nails. I apply two coats, but a little time gap between the two, so as to allow the first coat to dry up completely.

Is nail strengthener same as base coat?

Strengthening base coats (like our Maxus Base Coat) protect the nail plate from breaking and peeling. They will never be as potent as using a strengthener since a base coat is only being applied once a week, while a strengthener is continuous use.

Why does gel polish make my nails weak?

Nails become weak or thin after repeated gel polish applications are the result of over-buffing the nail surface during preparation and improper removal of gel polish. Gel polish is a liquid solution that can be brushed on the nail surface and these chemicals do not interact with human nails.

Why do my gel nails peel off after one day?

Your nails aren’t dehydrated enough. Water will make your nails expand. If you apply polish on a nail that has too much moisture, it can chip and peel sooner than it should. This is one reason why nail techs will apply nail polish remover or alcohol right before applying the gel polish.

How long should you let your nails breathe between gel manicures?

Because of this, it’s critical for those who often get gel or acrylic manicures to take breaks in-between if you’ve noticed any of the five signs of damage. Hanna suggests letting them completely grow out before getting your next gel or acrylic manicure. This usually takes about six months, according to Stern.

Why do my gel nails peel off after a week?

The gel top coat usually peels off if it isn’t cured properly, or has been applied over a colour gel or acrylic nails that have been wiped down with isopropyl alcohol. Each layer of gel is sticky and bonds to the next one, so if the tacky layer is removed, the next layer of polish will not adhere and peel off.

What is a builder gel overlay?

Builder gel is what you will use when you want to create length, thickness or add strength to the nail. You can apply builder gel to either natural nails for a non-chip overlay, or use it with nail tips to create extensions or enhancements.

Does builder gel strengthen nails?

Builder is also ‘breathable’, which is great for those with weaker nails as cuticle oil can penetrate and reach the nail bed. The Gel Bottle’s website states that it won’t chip or lift โ€“ again because it’s a strengthened gel. It increases flexibility on brittle nails which means they’re much less likely to snap.
