The way you apply your Red Carpet Manicure products play a big part in how long they will last without chipping, and we know that’s the last thing you want them to do! To achieve a long lasting manicure, follow our tips below:

Gel Polish Application

A step by step will be provided within the Starter Kits, however there are a few extra points to bear in mind when applying your gel polish:

  • Wipe over your nails thoroughly with Purify before applying gel polish to ensure you remove any natural polish or creams that may encourage lifting of the gel polish.
  • When applying base colour and top coat, make sure you leave a tiny gap between the nail and the cuticle, and between the nail and the side walls to prevent flooding, or the gel will lift.
  • Make sure to give your gel nails a good wipe at the end with Purify to remove the sticky residue – if the nails squeak when you wipe them, you will know all the residue has been removed.

Color Dip Application

A step by step will be provided within the Starter Kit, however there are a few extra points to bear in mind when applying your gel polish:

 

  • Apply thin layer of base coat to nail (thick application can cause lumps).
  • Dip prepped nail directly into colour jar at a 45° angle.
  • Do not twist, swirl or stir nail while dipping, this can cause lumps.
  • When applying a dark or neon colour, use Color Dip’s Sheer Base
  • If you have any bare spots in colour or want to make colour more intense, apply third coat.
  • If excess base or top coat gets on skin/cuticle, quickly remove it with an orange wood stick before dipping into powder.
