Applying gel polish step by step

Are you considering doing a gel manicure at home and not sure what products to use and how to apply it? Great, because in this article I will explain to you how to do this most easily and why Wellgel is the best choice for you.

What do you need?
What you actually need to do gel nail polish at home is listed below. It is recommended to use gel polish as a system to ensure optimal results. These instructions below can be used for any gel polish, regardless of brand. Follow the recommended curing time from the product information or manufacturer. With Wellgel this is 60 seconds, with most other brands this is 120 seconds.

Applying Gel Polish:

  • Prepare nails by cleaning the nails or removing old nail polish.
  • Push back the cuticle and clean the surrounding nail plate.
  • Shape the nails with a 180/240 grit nail file.
  • Buff the nail lightly with a nail buffer block .
  • Remove the dust and wipe the nail with Nail Cleanser using a lint-free wipe.
  • (Optional) Apply a coat of nail bonder. Wait until it is dry.
  • Apply 1 layer very thinly and seal the edges of the nails. The key to a successful application is to apply in a very thin layer. This layer serves as a base coat, with other brands you use a separate base coat for this step.
  • Cure (by placing your hand) in the UV lamp for 20 seconds.
  • Apply the gel polish in a very thin application from the cuticle to the free edge. Make sure to seal the edges.
  • Place the hand in a UV lamp for 1 minute for light colors or 30 seconds longer for dark colors. Or 30 seconds for LED lamp. (Twice as long with other brands)
  • If necessary, repeat steps 9 and 10 until coverage is even.
  • Apply a thin layer of Top Coat from the cuticle to the free edge. (WITH OTHER BRANDS)
  • Place hand in UV lamp for 2 minutes or 30 seconds for LED light. (WITH OTHER BRANDS)
  • Wipe the sticky surface with a nail cleaner and lint-free nail wipes
