WHAT IS GEL VARNISH?

Gel polish or Shellac by Nailino is known as a 'hybrid' UV gel for nails, it differs in some respects from the classic gel manicure and nail polish and is often seen as a mixture of both. Just like gel and gel polish, it hardens within two minutes after application with UV light, under LED light within 90 seconds - the tiresome blowing to dry nail polish is no longer necessary. 
  • Gel polish ensures no chipping and lasts longer than nail polish. 
  • Gel polish is a mixture of nail polish and gel. Suitable for all healthy nails. These must not be too thin.

HOW LONG DOES GELL VARNISH COLOR LAST?

Gellack color lasts about 3 weeks as a nails manicure. Even longer than a pedicure on feet. An advantage is that gel polish does not splinter but grows out. The robustness of gel polish easily withstands sports or everyday work compared to nail polish. Gel polish can be removed with nail polish remover or with a file.

HOW IS GEL VARNISH APPLIED?

It is important for the application of gel polish that the nail is well prepared. However, the manicure or pedicure can be done at home without any problems, just like with nail polish. With the integrated brush, the gel polish color is applied like nail polish. Make sure the nails are clean. Trim and file the nails into the desired shape. Push back the cuticles. Roughen the nail surface with a file or buffer so that the gel polish adheres better. Now the nails must be free of grease. With our Nagel Cleaner or with one nail polish remover we degrease the nails. Now we wear this Gellack Base Coat Gel as a base coat on the nails and harden this under a UV LED Lampe out. We then apply the desired gel polish color and also cure it under UV LED light. To give the gel polish the necessary hold, we seal the nails with finish gel, apply this gel and harden it under the UV LED lamp.

HOW TO REMOVE GELLAK PAINT?

After about 3 weeks, the Gellack Nails no longer look fresh. So we need to remove the varnish. You can remove the gel polish color with a file or with nail polish remover. If you decide to use nail polish remover, the nails must be soaked in acetone nail polish remover for about 10 minutes, then the polish can be easily removed.
