How to Apply Gel Polish with the Semilac Starter Kit

Correct application of gel polish is essential for achieving a beautiful and long-lasting manicure. Regular practice will help you master the technique!

UV Gel polish is designed to last up to 3 weeks. To ensure your nails are shiny and durable, follow these steps carefully. Remember, only practice makes perfect.

Steps for Gel Polish Application:

1. Prepare the Nail Plate: Gently push back the cuticles using a wooden stick or the Semilac pusher.
2. Shape the Nail: Use a quality Semilac nail file, such as the Harbor-Bridge file, to shape the nail edges.
3. Buff the Nail Plate: Smooth the nail surface using the Semilac Buffing Block.
4. Clean the Nail Plate: Wipe the nails thoroughly with Semilac Nail Cleaner to remove all dust and oils. Any residue can cause the varnish to chip.
5. Apply Primer (Optional): If you have experienced nail chipping before, apply Semilac Primer or Primer Acid-Free to enhance adhesion.
6. Apply Base Coat: Apply the UV gel polish base coat and cure it in the UV lamp.
7. Apply Color: Apply Semilac Gel Polish color in thin layers, curing each layer in the UV lamp. Depending on the color, you may need 2-3 layers or more for optimal coverage. Highly pigmented colors might require extended curing time.
8. Apply Top Coat: Apply the Gel Polish top coat. Top coats labeled 'No Wipe' do not need to be cleaned after curing. Standard top coats have a sticky layer that should be wiped off with a cotton pad soaked in Nail Cleaner.
9. Finish with Manicure Oil: Apply Semilac manicure oil to enhance the shine and hydrate the skin around your nails.
