Gel polish nails

Would you like well-kept nails that you don't really have to look after? Then gel polish is what you need. You paint the nails in your favourite colour and then enjoy them for 2 to 3 weeks. After application, you can move on immediately as the polish is hardened the moment the nails come out of the lamp. Applying gel polish takes some time, but by doing it regularly you will become more skilled and create your perfect gel polish nails. Do you prefer one colour or do you like nail art? With gel polish, it's all possible.

Best gel polish

The best gel polish is different for everyone. Look for what you like to work with. The best gel polish colour is also very personal. Are you a fan of a neat but inconspicuous manicure or do you prefer a bright colour? We have a wide range of gel polish colours, you can find them under NailPerfect UPVOTED Soak Off Gelpolish and check out all colour variants. Many colours can also be combined for nail art.

How to use gel polish

Before you can start using gel polish, it is important that you have everything you need. Look carefully at what you need for each product. Very important is a good UV or Led lamp, because gel polish must always be cured. When using a UV lamp, you need to cure all layers for 120 seconds and with a LED lamp for 60 seconds. If gel polish does not stay on your nails very well, make sure you follow all the steps correctly. This is important for a good adhesion. Make sure you never paint on the skin, as this will cause the polish to come off much quicker.

  • Step 1: file your nails into the desired shape and length.
  • Step 2: gently push your cuticles back with a cuticle pusher or bok paw.
  • Step 3: gently roughen the nails so that there are no more sheets on the nail. Use a nail buffer to do this.
  • Step 4: degrease the nails if necessary.
  • Step 5: for good adhesion, you can use a primer.
  • Step 6: apply the base coat and harden it under an LED or UV lamp.
  • Step 7: apply your favourite gel polish colour to the nails. Harden this again under the lamp.
  • Step 8: apply a second colour coat and then harden it again. If you still don't find the colour opaque enough, apply another coat until you are satisfied.
  • Step 9: finish with a top coat. This can be a glossy or matt top coat. This layer should also be cured under the lamp.
  • Step 10: remove the adhesive layer with a cleaner if necessary.
  • Step 11: finish with a lovely cuticle oil to condition the skin again.

Gel polish removal

It is important to remove gel polish properly. If you don't do this, you may end up damaging your own nails.

  • Step 1: file off the gloss layer of the polish.
  • Step 2: use a remover with acetone to soak off the gel polish faster. Apply this to a cotton ball and place it on the nail.
  • Step 3: apply a piece of foil to the cotton ball and finger. Repeat for all fingers. Tip: you can also do one hand first.
  • Step 4: let it soak for about 10 minutes.
  • Step 5: remove the foil and cotton wool.
  • Step 6: push the leftover gel polish off the nail with a cuticle pusher. Do this gently. Is the polish still too sticky? Apply another cotton ball with acetone and let the polish soak for a while more.
  • Step 7: Wash your hands when you have finished removing it.
  • Step 8: Apply a cuticle oil to repair and care for the skin.
