Gelish 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 Foundatio 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.
A rich shade with a lovely finish. I did find the Gelish polish a little on the thin side making it easy to overload the brush, but as I am a novice home user, then I just probably need to get used to it.
Love this colour so much especially for the colder months! Lovely plum colour!
Love this colour, really fast delivery.
Very popular colour a must have for your collection !
love this colour, it really is the perfect deep plum purple it looks in the picture
This deep wine plum colour is one of my new favourites. Closest in colour to Style Mauv-en but a good couple of shades darker this is the perfect winter wine colour. Can be a little tricky to apply if not warmed slightly and thinner coats are a must but so worth it. Great price and quick delivery as always from Nicely Polished!
