What is gel polish and how do I use it?
Gel nail polish is a longer lasting, chip free, smudge proof alternative to nail polish. The gel polish is applied to the nail and unlike nail polish doesn't need to dry, it need to be cured by using a UV or LED nail lamp. The lights in the lamp cure the polish making it hardwearing. Gel polish can last up to 4 weeks with good preparation and application on the nail. It is much quicker than waiting for nail polish to dry and doesn't smudge. Watch our nail preparation, application and removal videos coming soon.

How long does it take to cure under your LED lamps?
Our gel polish can take as quick as 30 seconds to cure and set depending on which of our lamps you are using. Our 9W LED portable lamp takes 45 seconds to cure each layer. Our 24w Automatic lamp takes 30 seconds to cure each layer. Please add on between 10-30 seconds if you are applying really dark colours such as black as lights take a little longer to penetrate. These timings are for each thin layer of gel polish applied.
How do I remove gel nail polish?
Gel nail polish needs proper removal to ensure you don't damage your nails. Gel polish is easy to remove by firstly filing the top shine from the polish and then soaking the nail polish in gel remover using our removal pockets. Soak for 10 minutes and then use a wooden cuticle stick to gently peel away the gel polish. Wipe nails with remover to remove any leftover bits of gel polish and apply custicle oil to nails and cuticles to restore moisture to the nails.
Can I use different top and base coats with your polish?
Although you could we wouldn't recommend it. Our polish is free from many chemicals so that our base and top coat are specially made to work together with our polish to give you long lasting wear. Using other base and top coat brands would invalidate our insurance and our guarantee to you. It would be unknown what reactions other chemicals in other brands could have with our polishes so we would not recommend that you use other brands with our polishes. We would also recommend that our polishes are used for the recommended times and with our lamps as this would insure that your gel is cured correctly.
