Got gel nail envy? We get it! That smooth, even, long-lasting gel application can make anyone swoon. Once you go gel, all other nail polishes seem so inferior.
That said, getting the best gel nail polish results is easier said than done when you’re first starting. It doesn’t apply like regular nail polish. It can take some finessing to get it just right, but rest assured you can do it!
These tips for gel polish beginners will have you applying your gel nail polish like a PRO in no time.
Clean, dry nails ensure the gel polish will adhere correctly. Avoid touch-ups and make your manicure last longer with a little prep work. This is the time to file or trim your nail, smooth the edges, and create a clean slate.
You might be able to skip the base coat with regular nail polish, but that’s a big no-no with gel nail polish. You need a base coat so that the gel properly sticks. Our Lagunamoon gel nail polish kits include the top coat and base coat so you have everything at your disposal.
Every layer of gel nail polish has to be cured. When you apply it too thick, you risk a poor curing experience. Short strokes create fullness without streaking or bubbling. After curing each layer, you can decide whether you need to add another layer to get the color you want.
Want to know the secret of a chip-free gel manicure? It’s all in the fingertip! Don’t forget to cap the edges and tip of each nail to seal it. Take your nail polish brush and rub it over the free edge — that’s all there is to it!
Mistakes are easy to fix with gel nail polish since the gel wipes clean from your nail. The trick is to fix any errors before you cure.
