Q. How do I apply Polish to Gel?

A. Step-By-Step instruction is provided by clicking the link below.

How To Apply

Q. Should I use a different brush in mixing and applying the gel polish?

A The nail polish brush can be used in both mixing and application. But if you prefer using different bushes, it’s okay. Always make sure you clean the polish brush after the application with a paper towel.

Q. Does the mixed polish normally thickens while applying the mixture?

A. Keep in mind that the gel polish is cured with LED/UV light, and working in a room lit with LED or applying under an LED lamp can start that curing process without you meaning it to. Mix colour enough for one hand at a time to avoid waste of gel polish.

Q. After application, the shade of the polish was uneven on the nails.

A. Remember to apply thin layers, dark colours may require multiple coatings, to ensure that the light will be able to cure the polish and avoid unevenness.

Q. After applying a layer, when I tried to add more polish before curing, some of the polish came off, why?

A. Remember that each layer should be thinly applied and cured. If ever this occurs during your application, just start curing and continue with the application of thin layers.

Q. Sometimes when I used a light colour and it looks diluted and lighter?

A. A 50/50 ratio is recommended during mixing, but for light colours, you can go up to 60/40 to avoid obvious dilution of the color. And keep in mind that the most important aspect of achieving the best result in your gel polish is curing. Some colours require 3 coats.

Q. Is it normal that after curing, some nails look wrinkled?

A. The thickness of the gel polish applied will be the reason of wrinkles on your nails. Apply a thin layer of Hydracol Gel top coat, and continue the curing process. If wrinkles are still visible, removal of the gel polish and re-application is the best way.

A. Extreme temperature changes the quality so we advise you to follow the below steps to prevent this from happening. Take the time to clean the bottle after use.

Store Hydra Peel upside down to create an airtight seal against the lid and bottle top.

A. Yes, you absolutely can.
