How to Use:
Step 1: Before you start you will need the 14 Day UV Gel Clear Polish Kit, your favourite coloured brand of nail polish, an old towel and access to a power supply.
Step 2: Preparing the nails. This is the most important part of applying nail polish, if the nails are not correctly prepared the polish will not have a silky smooth salon finish and may not last as long. Follow each of these steps carefully and thoroughly. We suggest you work on one hand or foot at a time. Remove jewellery and any nail products using Acetone Solution, file and shape nails to a uniform length and wash and dry hands or feet thoroughly. Remove the residual skin cells from the nail plate surface and lightly buff over the nail plate to remove surface shine and any ridges and brush away any dust.
Step 3: Now wipe over the nail plate with Finishing Wipe, once itís evaporated you are ready to apply the 2-in-1 Base Coat. It is important to apply base coat to your nails before applying your favourite coloured nail polish. Base coat helps to prolong the life of your polish and also stops any staining on the natural nail plate. Finish off by capping the free edge of the nail. After the base coat has dried fully, you are ready to apply your favourite nail colour.
Step 4: Applying nail polish in thin layers will achieve the best results, starting at the centre of the nail leaving a 1mm gap away from the cuticle, brush the polish towards the free edge in one smooth motion. Immediately proceed with the sides of the nail in the same manner and finish off by capping the free edge of the nail. Leave coloured polish to dry for at least 30 minutes before applying UV Top Coat.
Step 5: Place your nails under the UV bulb to cure the gel for 3 minutes. Repeat the application of Clear UV Gel Polish Top Coat and curing process two more times. Each layer of gel always appears tacky after curing, this is completely normal. Once you have applied and cured 3 layers of Clear UV Gel Polish Top Coat use Finishing Wipe on a Lint Free Wipe to gently remove the tacky top layer revealing the hardened, glossy gel underneath.
