Gel Nails Guide for Beginners

Gel Nails Guide for Beginners

Traditional nail polishes are prone to chipping within a few days, often due to more oil production on the nail bed, which prevents the shine from adhering for a prolonged duration. Doing your own gel nails can seem intimidating, but it is SUPER easy and rewarding because of all the time and money you save. Gel polish is the latest trend for those struggling with long-wearing nail polish. Unlike regular nail polish, gel polish is a thinner formula and more flexible than standard acrylic enhancements, so it will not chip easily from your nails. This gel nails guide includes instructions, tips, and FAQs. Leave a comment if you still have questions.

Tools for Doing Gel Nails

  1. 99% Isopropyl Alcohol
  2. Cotton Pads or Lint Free Wipes
  3. UV Lamp or LED Lamp
  4. Gel/Shellac Base Coat, Color Coat, and Top Coat

DIY Steps for Gel Nails

  1. Begin with clean and trimmed nails. Use cuticle oil to remove any excess skin lying on the nail plate. You can also push the skin back with an orangewood stick for a smooth surface. A nail file will shape the nails to your desired length to get your nails ready for the gel polish. Then remove excess oil and residue with a cotton ball dampened with acetone.
  2. Apply a cuticle remover on your skin and then push back each cuticle with a metal or wood cuticle pusher. If you have tough ones, you can soak them in warm water to soften them for one to two minutes before you push back your cuticles.
  3. A base coat is essential to protect your natural nails from damage. Apply a skinny layer of the base gel to the nails, avoid applying the base gel polish close to your cuticle. Place your nails under a UV or LED lamp. The LED light will cure the gel polish in just 30 seconds, or 2 minutes with a UV lamp.
  4. Apply a skinny coat of gel polish color. Remember to use the thinnest layers step by step to prevent the gel polish from lifting off the nail. Cure your fingernail under the UV or LED lamp.
  5. Apply one coat evenly and cure for the prescribed time (typically 90 seconds-2 minutes). I like to layer on and cure a second coat to make the color bolder, especially if I’m working with a sheer polish.
  6. Finish with a thin layer of topcoat for a glossy look and cure it under the UV or LED lamp. This coat is a critical step and is crucial in creating a long-lasting manicure. Apply a thin and even layer, then cure for the prescribed time limit.
  7. Wipe with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol. Now you will get a dry, smooth, and shiny pretty gel nails.

The Ultimate Guide To Nail Care

The Ultimate Guide To Nail Care

Every time i ask some of my friends to do nail care, they always be like: Will it affect the self protection of the nails?

Let’s make it clear first: Nail Caring and Manicure are complete two different things. Nail Caring is to protect your natural nails in a healthy way.

So, whether you prefer manicure or natural nails, it is important to get fundamental care for your nails.

We have picked this ultimate guide of nail caring for you:

Nail Care History

The history of the manicure began thousands of years ago in Ancient Egypt. It has adapted and evolved to the shapes, colors, and styles that we know today.

The very first form of nail care and manicures ever recorded was around 5000 – 3000 BC in Ancient Egypt where women used to dip their nails into henna. These dyed nails were seen as a status symbol and a show of wealth and style considered to have great sex appeal.

Moving forward a while to China’s Chou Dynasty around 600BC and both noblemen and women were known to sparkle gold and silver on their nails.

As we move into more modern times within the last century, we can see the modern manicure as we know it today start to emerge. Around the early 1900s, women had started to experiment with colors, piercings, and other nail art, matching their outfits to their nails and using them as a way to show off their personal style to the world.

In 1955, the fake nail was inadvertently invented by a dentist and his brother as they were trying to fix a broken fingernail with acrylic. From here on out, celebrities and everyday people alike were seen with dramatic, bold, and long nails, which has only continued to evolve with the changes in fashion.

The rise of the nail salon really began to take off in the 1990s, as women were happy to pay money to have their nails professionally done and receive pedicures and manicures regularly.

In the last 10 years or so, though, the range of home nail care products has exploded and there seems to be a trend now towards caring for your own nails to make the practice more personalized, safe, and affordable.
