Preparation of gel polish

Preparation of gel polish

Gel polish is a popular and long-lasting solution for nail coloring. However, to ensure that gel polish stays durable and beautiful on nails, it's essential to properly prepare them. The gel polish preparation process involves removing all old polish, shaping the nails, pushing back the cuticles, removing oil, applying a base coat and gel polish, and finally, a topcoat. By following these steps, our gel polish will be more long-lasting and beautiful on the nails.

Preparing nails for gel polish is an essential step to achieve a long-lasting and beautiful result. Below are the steps to prepare nails for gel polish:

  1. Remove old nail polish: If there is any old nail polish on the nails, remove it with a cotton pad soaked in acetone.

  2. Shape the nails: Shape the nails to the desired shape and smooth the surface with a nail file.

  3. Soak the nails: Soak the nails in warm water for 2-3 minutes. This helps remove any remaining nail polish and softens the nail plate, making it easier to carry out the next steps.

  4. Push back cuticles: Use a cuticle pusher to gently push back the cuticles. This should be done gently and carefully to avoid any damage.

  5. Remove oil from the nail plate: Remove any oil from the nail plate with a cotton pad soaked in acetone.

  6. Apply base coat: Apply a thin layer of base coat to the nail plate and allow it to dry. The base coat helps with the adhesion of the gel polish and promotes durability.

  7. Apply gel polish: Apply a thin layer of gel polish to the nail plate and place the nail under a UV lamp to cure. Repeat this step until you achieve the desired coverage.

  8. Apply topcoat: Apply a thin layer of topcoat to the nail and place it under a UV lamp to cure.

  9. Remove the tacky layer: Once the final layer of topcoat has dried, remove the tacky layer from the nail with a cotton pad soaked in acetone.

I hope this information helps with preparing nails for gel polish. It is important to always perform nail preparation carefully and cautiously to achieve a good result with gel polish.
