How To Use
Step 1. Prepare the nail by gently pushing back the cuticle using the flat end of an orangewood stick. Use the pointed end of the orangewood stick to perfect the cuticle
Step 2. Shape the natural nail using a wooden or soft file.
Step 3. Prepare the natural nail by gently removing the shine using a 100/180 buffer.
Step 4. Place a small amount of Gelish Nail Surface Cleanse on a Wipe It Off lint-free pad and cleanse the nail to remove any excess dust or oil.
Step 5. Apply Gelish pH Bond from the cuticle to free edge. Gelish pH Bond evaporates very quickly leaving no residue. This is used to remove excess oils and neutralize the pH of the nail plate to prepare it for Gelish Foundation Base Gel.
Step 6. Apply a very thin layer of Foundation Base Gel to the nail making sure to cap the free edge. This acts as the bonding agent for your Gelish soak-off polish and it is the essential ingredient for your Gelish manicure. The Foundation Base Gel will remain tacky even after it has been cured. This is to be expected so be careful not to touch it with your fingers.
Step 7. Place your hand in the LED Lamp and cure for 5 seconds or 1 minute in a UV Light.
Intermediate Step: Be sure to roll your Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish bottle around in your hands to make sure it is mixed evenly. This is especially important for colors with glitter or metallic additive.
Step 8. Apply a very thin coat of Gelish color of choice to the nail and cover the natural nail plate completely from cuticle to free edge. Be sure to remove any polish from the skin before curing. Cap the free edge to seal. This will prevent any unnecessary chipping or peeling from any edge snags. Cure the Gelish color.
Step 9. Place your hand in the LED Lamp and cure for 30 seconds or 2 minutes in a UV Light.
Step 10. Apply a second coat of Gelish color to the nail for full coverage. This is especially important if you have a glittery or metallic color. These colors require more coats to create a more solid appearance on your nail plate. Cure the Gelish color again after each coat until you've reached your desired appearance.
Step 11. Place your hand in the LED Lamp and cure for 30 seconds or 2 minutes in a UV Light.
Step 12. Apply Gelish Top It Off Sealer Gel to the nail from cuticle to free edge. Gelish Top It Off acts as a sealer and protective layer for your Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish ensuring maximum shine and durability. Be sure to cap the free edge to seal.
Step 13. Place your hand in the LED Lamp and cure for 30 seconds or 2 minutes in a UV Light.
Step 14. Place a small amount of Gelish Nail Surface Cleanse on a Wipe It Off lint-free pad and wipe the surface of the nail to remove any excess sticky residue.
To Finish (Optional): Apply Gelish Nourish Cuticle Oil to revitalize and condition the surrounding skin. Massage the oil into the skin for maximum absorption.
