Nail Polish Tips

What Goes First For Gel Nails?

Written by Tara

Cure (by placing all fingers) in the UV Lamp for 1 minute or LED lamp for 30 seconds. Apply Gel Polish Color in a very thin application from cuticle to free edge. Be sure to seal the edges. Place hand in an UV light for 3 minutes for dark colors or 2 minute for light colors.

Step 1: Start with clean, dry nails. Apply a thin coat of Savvy Girl Gel Nail Polish Base Coat. Make sure to seal the edge of each nail with the Base Coat to keep moisture from penetrating under the finished polish.

Generally Do you wipe gel nails between coats? So, essentially every layer you use in a gel manicure will remain sticky until you’ve either wiped it over to remove the residue, or you’ve cleverly skipped that stage and use a gel top designed to leave your choke gel manicure smooth, glossy without any stickiness. A no wipe top coat is exactly what it says it is.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)

Do you shake gel nail polish?

When you don’t shake your color gel polish, it may sit in the bottle unevenly. This makes it harder to gather the polish on your brush and spread it on the nail surface evenly. When you shake the gel polish, it settles and thickens.

How many coats of gel polish should I use?

Nail technicians recommend at least two coats of color, but the more you do, the more opaque your application. Don’t worry if the first one looks streaky — thin layers will do the job better than thick uneven ones. Cure your polish in between each coat, placing your nails under the lamp for at least 30 seconds each.

Can I use gel polish without a UV light?

You can successfully use your beloved gel nail polishes without a UV light, whether you’re applying them on top of acrylic nails or use gel nail polish on your natural nails.

How long should you cure gel polish?

The curing time for the gel polish base coat is 5 to 30 seconds, gel polish color should cure for 30 to 45 seconds for each layer, and gel polish top coat should cure no longer than 60 seconds. Curing gel polish longer than recommended time turns it into a solid, and it will be difficult to remove later.

How many base coats do you need for gel nails?

With basecoat, 2 coats of color, and topcoat, gel polish adds an extra flexible and durable layer on the natural nails thus make it stronger as long as the gel polish is on the nails.

How long does gel polish take to dry?

Gel nail polish dried with a UV drying lamp – when using a UV dryer, the initial base coat will take around 60 – 90 seconds to dry, followed by a further 60 – 90 seconds for the topcoat.
