Lagunamoon tips: Can you use regular nail polish with gel top coat?

on May 07, 2021

Just like a good makeup routine, gel top coats are here for all minimalist lovers looking for a low-maintenance healthy manicure and make it last longer. However, some people start using a gel top coat over regular nail polish instead of gel polish.

So, why do people like to use regular nail polish with a gel top coat?

First of all, regular nail polishes have a variety of color choices and affordable prices that meet the needs of customers. Secondly, top coats are thinner and contain more ingredients that create a durable surface on the nail. It keeps the nail color long-lasting and gives it extra shine.

However, does it really work like that?

Ideally, applying a gel top coat over regular nail polish would work and keep our nicely painted nails for 10-14 days, ONLY IF we have the patience to wait for the nail polish to FULLY dry before applying the top coat, which might take up to 10 hours. Most people don’t have enough patience for the drying time, and eventually, the top coat would just slip right off or “wrinkle” the nail polish, which is something you wouldn’t wish to happen.

Therefore, for the question “can you use regular nail polish with gel top coat?”, technically, the answer is yes, but practically, it’s not recommended.
