Currently, gel manicure is one of the trends. Its advantages include its durability, because it will stay on the nails for up to three weeks. And besides this, this type of manicure makes your nails even more well-groomed and beautiful. Also, companies that produce gel polishes claim that they contain vitamins that will make your nails even stronger. And if earlier such a manicure could only be done in a beauty salon, now you can do it yourself at home.
It is necessary
- - nail file;
- - cotton pads;
- - nail polish remover;
- - brush;
- - primer;
- - lamp for polymerization;
- - gel polish;
- - fixer;
- - napkins;
- - degreaser;
- - cuticle oil.
Prepare your nails first. To do this, wipe off the old varnish from them, if any. Next, take a file and shape your nails into the desired shape. Then move the cuticle aside and degrease each nail.
Using a brush, apply a thin layer of primer to the free edge of the nail. Wait a while for it to dry. Then you need to apply a thin layer of base coat to the nails. Place your nails in a curing light. You can buy such a lamp in the online store. Keep your nails in the lamp for at least a minute.
Apply a thin layer of your chosen color coat and then re-place your nails in the lamp for about 30 seconds. Then apply another coat and use the lamp again.
Then coat your nails with an even, thin layer of fixative. Again, place your nails in the lamp for at least 30 seconds.
Take a lint-free cloth and dampen it with degreaser. Then, using this napkin, remove the sticky layer from the nails. At the end of the manicure, you need to apply a few drops of cuticle oil to each of your nails.
