Unlike toothpaste-thick gel products of the past, today’s gels have a similar consistency to nail polish. They are brushed onto your nails and nail tips to extend length. After applying each coat, your nails will be put under ultraviolet (UV) light for up to 2 minutes to “cure” or harden the product. There is no odor during the application process.
Below are the steps for our Gel Powder Nail service:
Step 1: Remove old nail polish.
Step 2: Push back the cuticles and buff the nails with an emery board.
Step 3: Wipe off any dust and shape the artificial nails to fit the contour of the natural nails.
Step 4: Buff and wipe down the artificial nails once they have been attached.
Step 5: Protect the workspace with a paper towel or similar covering and place one hand on top of the covering.
Step 6: Dip a small plastic spoon (usually comes with the gel nail kit) into the powder and scoop some up. Use a level spoonful.
Step 7: Sprinkle the powder evenly across each nail as gently turn each nail from side to side. This helps to distribute the powder evenly. We repeat this step to ensure maximum coverage.
Step 8: Complete the rest of the nail application process, which involves curing under a UV light, buffing and sealing.
Step 9: We buff and wipe down your artificial nails once more.
