Why does my gel nail polish peel off so quickly?

Your layers are too thick. A gel manicure has many layers to it. If these layers are too thick, then your polish won’t cure and bond the right way. When this happens, you’ll start to peel much faster than you should.

Should I buff my nails before polish?

If you’re giving your nails a break from polish or nail extensions, they make natural nails look glossy and healthy – almost like you’re wearing clear nail polish. Note: If you are applying polish, don’t buff your nails to a shine or your polish won’t last as long.

Why is my nail polish lifting?

Lifting occurs when there isn’t a correct bond between the product and the nail plate. Therefore, the best way to prevent lifting is through proper prep of the nail plate and product control. It’s important to be very thorough when removing cuticle stuck to the nail plate—a quick swipe of the file isn’t enough!

Does hot water make nail polish peel?

According to Byrdie, soaking your tips in hot water allows the water to seep into the nail plate, which causes the polish to lift up and even peel off altogether. Switching to cooler showers helps, but even running fingers through your hair in the shower or tub can cause chips in polish.

Why does my nail polish not dry?

If your nail polish is not drying quickly, you’ve likely just painted on too thick of a layer. You should only be applying thin layers at a time and let each one dry before applying another.
