Frequently Asked Questions
How long should I cure for?
Depending on the strength of your lamp, cure time may vary. We suggest 30 seconds under UV lamp, and up to 2 minutes for an LED Lamp.
Are gel manicures safe?
Yes, absolutely! Gel manicures are completely safe if done correctly. Please read our blog to learn how to apply a gel manicure!
Why do the gel polishes come with a matching lacquer? Can I just purchase one or the other?
Unfortunately we do not sell them individually at this time. Each set comes with 1 gel and 1 lacquer because most of the time, people would like to match their hands with their feet!
Why does my gel polish keep peeling?
There are many reasons why your gel polish may be peeling; however if you are curing long enough with fresh bulbs then it may be due to any of the below reasons:
It is most commonly occurring with prep and finish:
1. Cuticle may not be pushed back fully and correctly. The layers of cuticle skin that can get left on the nail plate are highly water absorbent - this means any bits of cuticle left underneath the polish will take on water and expand, causing the polish to lift or peel.
2. You are not filing the free edge. Oils can accumulate on the free edge of the nail, so the edges need to be filed and cleaned before you begin your gel manicure.
3. Coats are being applied too thickly. This applies to base coat and top coat, as well as the colour. When you cure gel polish, only the very top layer absorbs all the light. This means that if the coat is too thich, the underneath layers will remain soft which will result in peeling.
