Can You Use Gel Top Coat Over Regular Polish?

on June 19, 2021

Have you ever heard of a Gelly sandwich? It’s when you use regular nail polish to paint your nails and then apply a gel topcoat. The result? A Gelly sandwich, squishy on the inside, colorful on the outside. Definitely not as appetizing as an actual jelly sandwich!

Can You Use Regular Nail Polish With A Gel Top Coat?

As explained above, it has been done before and enough people have given it thought to the point it now has a nickname; Gelly sandwich. In short, no you should NOTs apply a Gel Polish topcoat to regular nail polish. Regular polish has a different drying time and is made out of slightly different materials. When Gel polish dries it’s in 30-60 seconds and dries like plastic. This leaves any moisture under your gel top coat to get trapped.

Even with regular nail polish advertised as “quick-dry,” one must stay careful. It’s shown on social media feeds lately as people paint their nails with mixed polishes, but professionals do not recommend mixing regular lacquer with Gel lacquer.
