*You will need a UV lamp with a minimum of 48 watts to safely use gel liquids*
1. Apply Gel Base to the nail in a thin, even layer while avoiding the cuticle.
Β *if using dip powder*
  • A-2. Pour dip powder over the wet gel liquid. Tap off excess dip powder and clean around cuticles with an orange wood stick.
  • 3. Place hand under UV lamp with a minimum of 48 watts and cure for 30-60 seconds. (Time will vary with each light)
  • 4. Remove hand, brush off all excess powder from your nails. The powder will be cured at this point, so it will not smear.
  • 5. Repeat on all nails until desired coverage is reached.
  • 6 - A. If clear encapsulation is desired, repeat steps 1-4 again using Transparent Soul (our clear powder) to encapsulate. Then use a high grit 180+ buffer to smooth the surface of the nail.
  • 6-B. If Gel liquid encapsulation is desired, apply Gel Base, Cure for 60 seconds then apply Gel Top and cure for 60 seconds. Then buff with a high grit buffer 180+ until nails are smooth.Β 
*if using gel polish*
  • B-2. Cure Base gel under UV light for 60 seconds.
  • 3. Apply a thin, even coat of your desired gel color to 3/4 of the nail avoiding the skin bordering the nail and cure for 60 seconds. Repeat on all nails.
  • 4. Apply a 2nd thin, even coat of gel color to the entire nail (again, making sure to avoid getting on the skin). Gently run an orange wood stick along the cuticle to remove any excess product before curing for 60 seconds. Repeat on all nails.
3. Apply a thin layer of Gel Base to all of your nails and cure for 60 seconds. Then, without touching your nails, apply a thin-medium layer of Gel Top coat to all of your nails and cure for 60 seconds.Β 
4. Nailed Gel Top coat is a no wipe, HEMA free formula, meaning your nails will not be tacky after curing and do not require wiping off the tacky layer.
5. Apply your favorite Nailed Dips cuticle oil and admire your gorgeous mani!
