Guide for gel nail polish (2021)

I want to share practical guide on for gel nail polish after years of wearing regular nail polish and people mentioning switching to gel, I started to wonder what exactly the difference is between the two. Please patronize us at www.havF.com: we have all your beauty care  needs

I looked at it and found that most of the differences are in how long the polish lasts and how durable it is. The time it takes to color the nails in the two ways also varies greatly. Gel nails are faster and brighter, but more difficult to remove. The application tactics are slightly different between the two types, as you would like to use a gel nail lamp, however with regular polish, just let them air dry.

Let’s take an intimate look at the various techniques.

 Guide for gel nail polish: Preparing nails

Whether you are wearing normal nail polish or gel nail polish, you would like to try to make your polish look good, they are the same. You should always file your nails first. There are many variance ways that you can file your nails. You will fill them with squares, rounded, almond, coffin and more. a quick glance at Pinterest will show you all the different ways.

After filing your nails, be sure to remove all pieces with a nail prep tissue. Do not use water as this can cause the nails to expand. Remember to stay away from the cuticles before starting your manicure, as this will help your nails last longer.

If your nails have horizontal or vertical ridges, you will also need to polish them for the simplest result. You don’t have to spend a ton of money on a polishing tool.

What is the three stripes technique?

Basically this assumes that you just start in the center of the nail at the bottom of the stone, draw a strip towards the tip, and then make another strip in the same direction on either side of the nail. One of the main differences between gel polish and regular varnish is the time it takes to dry.

Dry times between regular polish coats can be 10-20 minutes. So be sure to give yourself abundance of time if you use this method.

Plus, you like to sit still and not wear your nails for love or money while you wait for them to dry, so this is usually a great excuse to sit back and watch touchscreen Netflix or listen to music.

To apply the gel polish, you will need a special gel base coat, UV or LED lamp, gel polish of the chosen color and a gel cap.

There is not much difference in price between normal polish and gel polish, but gel nails are a bit more expensive when you consider that you only have to buy one lamp.

Gel nail polish can be much thicker than normal nail polish, so the application method may be slightly different and more complex.

You have to be very careful not to stain the cuticles because once you place your fingers under the lamp it will harden and it will be almost impossible to remove it.

Gel nail polish should be applied in several very thin layers. If you make it too thick, it won’t solidify properly.

It can often be difficult to get it right because gel nail polish is a little thicker than normal nail polish.

I usually apply four coats of nail polish (color only, not including top coat and base coat) when using gel polish.

Gel polish reveals every little bump and bump on the nail so it is very important to make sure you get rid of any bumps after sanding when using the gel. Also, while polishing, you would like to cover the top of the nail as if you are polishing it daily.

After your nails are filed and polished, start by cleaning your nails with a nail prep solution. isopropanol or lotion is much cheaper and strictly equivalent because the products are advertised specifically for nail prep. Use a lint-free cloth to prepare to prevent scraps of paper from catching on your nails.

Apply a coat of base coat and cure under the lamp. Then apply four thin coats of paint (curing after each coat) and then apply a top coat of gel. The duration of the nail treatment will depend on the setting of the lamp.

Some bulbs work faster than others, and most of the time there is only one option.

My lamp, for example, has a cure time of 15 seconds, 30 seconds, and 1 minute.

I like to use the 30 second option because I think it gives me the simplest results.

Once the gel top coat has set, you will need to use an equivalent wipe (isopropyl alcohol) to clean the sticky top coat. Do not touch your nails between coats as they will be sticky. Your nails will now be firm and ready to use! Now you will want to use cuticle oil, but it is not necessary. All this are important steps / guide for gel nail polish

Remove regular varnish

Removing the normal varnish is very quick and easy. You will need nail polish remover and some cotton balls or pads. Put a soft cotton pad on the nail and let it sit for about 30 seconds, then gently wipe off the nail polish.

You can use an equivalent pad for multiple nails, and it will probably only treat your entire hand with a pad or plant disease.

Even after removing my nail polish, I prefer to file my nails again.

You can use cuticle oil or cream after removing nail polish because it can dry out your nails.

Remove gel polish

Removing gel polish can be a bit tricky and can damage your nails if not done correctly, but don’t let that put you off because it’s definitely worth it.

You will need a gel polish remover. honest advice: you just don’t have to buy a product that is advertised as a gel remover. Most gel removers are just acetone mixed with perfume, so I just buy acetone and it works great and costs a lot less.

Dampen cotton pads or pads with acetone and apply to nails. You will need something to carry them. for this you buy special clips, which are very inexpensive, or alternatively make a sensor film for each finger from aluminum foil.

You need to soak them for at least a quarter of an hour, then take a scraping tool (often a wooden orange stick or a metal nail scraper) and gently scrape off the polish.

If you’ve soaked your nails long enough, the polish will come off easily.

If it doesn’t work out, re-soak your nails for another quarter of an hour and repeat the method.

Resist the urge to remove your gel nail polish, it will seem easier at first, but it will damage your nails!

Gel polish shows all the irregularities of the nail, so when using the gel it is very important to remove all irregularities after sanding. Also, while polishing, you should cover the top of the nail as if you are polishing it daily.

After your nails have been filed and polished, start by cleaning them with a nail prep solution. isopropanol or lotion is much cheaper and strictly equivalent because these products are advertised specifically for nail prep. Use a lint-free cloth to prevent scraps of paper from staining your nails.

Apply a layer of bottom coat and dry under the lamp. Then apply four thin coats of paint (curing after each coat) and then apply a top coat of gel. The duration of the nail treatment will depend on the setting of the lamp.

Some bulbs are faster than others, and in most cases there is only one option.
