Can You Use Gel Polish And Nail Polish Together?

Written by Tara

In short, you should not apply a gel top coat to your regular nail polish since regular nail polish has a long drying time and gel polish will trap moisture under the top coat. We recommend that you stick with a regular base coat and top coat when painting your nails with regular nail lacquer.

Regular polish and gel polish can be used together on a nail as long as regular polish is completely dry before gel polish is applied and gel polish has to be completely cured before regular polish can be used.

Generally Can I use normal polish and put gel over it? Yes.Regular nail polishes can be used with gel top coats. However, this regular nail polish must be completely dry before gel polish is applied. These combined polishes must be removed by soaking in warm water because the acetone will dissolve the regular polish and stain the nails.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Can you put regular nail polish under a UV light?

Can you use UV light to dry regular nail polish? No, regular nail polish requires air drying, whereas gel polish contains a polymer that must be ‘cured’ by a UV or LED lamp for it to become hard. Regular nail polishes can’t be used with UV or LED lamps and it won’t dry any quicker from being put under the lamp.

Can I use Essie gel top coat on regular polish?

The rich coating of Gel-Setter also supports its anti-chip properties. Plus, it can be used along with any nail polish.

Is nail polish better than gel?

How much stronger is gel nail polish vs. regular? Gel polish lasts between 2-3 weeks at the minimum, while regular polish is lucky to go a week without chipping. With light wear, your gel nails last at least twice as long as a normal polish, but realistically they get you four to six times a standard manicure mileage.
