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 color 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 colors 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 color and it looks diluted and lighter?

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

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

A. 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.
