Gel Polish & Reflections Silver & Gold Powder

Application & Removal Instructions

 

Please follow these instructions carefully for perfect application results. We cannot emphasize enough careful preparation of the nail surface. This is absolutely essential in order to achieve the desired finish and longevity.

Please remember that failure to cap or seal the free edge is the number one cause of chipping.

If the nail is prepared correctly and the free edges are sealed, clients can expect 2 to 3 weeks wear without chipping or loss of shine.

If clients experience a stinging sensation when hands are placed under the lamp, or are known to have damaged nails, apply a thin coat of GELLUV® Repair & Protect before applying gel polish. Cure for same length of time as Gel polish. Do Not remove sticky layer or touch the nail until all layers have been applied and cured.

Precautions & Best Practice

Avoid contact with skin. Remove any gel that has accidentally come into contact with the skin before curing. Ideal thickness is 0.1mm – 0.2mm. Do not apply thick coats of the gel as this will cause cracking & bubbling. Opaque colours may need a 3rd thin coat if nail is still visible.

Do not touch the nail surface whilst it is curing.

Make sure the gel is fully exposed to the LED / UV Light when curing.

*Curing times may vary according to power of lamp used. Adjust times to suit.

If clients experience a stinging sensation when hands are placed under the lamp, or are known to have damaged nails, apply a thin coat of GELLUV® Repair & Protect instead of Foundation Base Coat, before applying gel polish. Cure for same length of time as Gel polish. Do Not remove sticky layer or touch the nail until all layers have been applied and cured.

Removal:

  1. Break the gloss finish of the polish using a nail file, removing as much of the gloss layer as possible without filing down to the natural nail.
  2. Soak a cotton ball with GELLUV®Professional Acetone and apply over the nail and wrap with aluminium foil
  3. Wait for 15-20 minutes. Remove the aluminium foil and cotton ball. Gently remove any gel residue with cuticle stick
  4. Clean the nails with nutrients.

Reflections Silver/Gold powder

 

 

Please follow these instructions to the letter. Powders must be applied over a layer of GELLUV® Gloss & Go – No Wipe Top Coat.

For best results use GELLUV® Ash Clouds for Silver/Chrome Mirror effect. Jet Black or Naturally White may also be used.

Gold Mirror Powder can be used over any non glitter colour. The powder allows shades of the base colour to show through and transforms the gold appearance from a bright yellow gold to varying shades of Rose Gold when used with any pink or red colour.

For best results use GELLUV® Clearly Pink, Plush Pink, Kiss Me, French Rose, Spring Kiss, Scandal or Scarlet Sensation.
