This handy Basix starter kit has mini sizes of Gelish System Essentials needed for a Gelish salon manicure. Kit includes pH BOND liquid, to prep nails prior to applying the FOUNDATION gel base that sets the adhesive bond between the nail plate and the gel products, and TOP IT OFF, a high-gloss topcoat that seals in Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish and creates a flexible, shiny Finish. Wipe on CLEANSER and it's perfect: a Gelish manicure will last and last, staying perfectly glossy for weeks without chipping, peeling or dulling. NOURISH Cuticle Oil is the final touch that bathes cuticles in nourishing, nail-beautifying emollients. When nail growth shows, Soak-Off Gel REMOVER will gently take off Gelish Gel Polish in 10-15 minutes...natural nails remain undamaged while they grow long and strong.
Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish is the original brush-in-bottle gel. It applies as easy as regular nail lacquer and cures in both LED and UV lamps. With meticulous application it can last up to 3 weeks without chipping or peeling. Removal is a cinch in just 10mins!
Step 1: Meticulous Nail Prep - ensuring to push the cuticle from the nail plate and remove all surface contaminants with a cleanser.
Step 2: Gelish Foundation Soak-Off Base Gel Application - ensure to shake the bottle to mix and remove excess product from the brush before application. Apply the base coat to the nail plate and ensure to cap the free edge. Cure for 10 sec/LED light or 1 min/UV light.
Step 3: Gelish Colour Coat Application - ensure to shake bottle vigorously and remove excess product from the brush by wiping it on the bottle's neck. Apply one very thin coat of colour to the nail plate and ensure to cap the free edge. Cure for 30 sec/LED light or 2 min/UV lamp. Repeat step 3 for a second coat.
Step 4: Gelish Top It Off Soak-Off Sealer Gel Application - ensure to shake the bottle to mix and remove excess product from the brush. Apply one very thin coat of top to the nail plate and ensure to cap the free edge. Cure for 30 sec/LED light or 2 min/UV lamp. Remove the tacky/sticky inhibition layer with a lint free pad soaked with 99% isopropyl alcohol or nail cleanser.
Step 5: Rehydrate - ensure you rehydrate the nail plate and cuticles with a cuticle oil and repeat this twice daily to maintain and promote longer wear.
Gelish Soak-Off Polish Removal:
Step 1: Saturate the cotton pad of a remover wrap or foil with an acetone-based remover.
Step 2: Place the pad over the gel and wrap finger. Wait 10-15 mins.
Step 3: Securely grip the finger and apply slight pressure to the fingernail. Using a twisting motion pull the wrap/foil off the finger.
Step 4: Gently push off the remaining gel with an orangewood stick being careful not to scrap the surface layers of the natural nail plate. Remove any product residue with a lint-free pad soaked with remover. If the gel does not come off easily then repeat steps 1-3.
Step 5: Rehydrate the nail and cuticle with a cuticle oil.

Excellent product, although my box arrived bashed and dented inside a padded box, however the products were not damaged.
