The Process

Like your run-of-the-mill mani, a gel manicure starts with filing the nails, pushing back the cuticles, buffing the nails and cleaning the hands. Gel manicures also require an application of sunscreen about 30 minutes before commencing your mani to give your hands UV protection — just as you would do before a walk in the sun, or hitting the beach!

You’ll then create your manicure with a Base Coat layer, 2-3 Colour Coat layers and a Top Coat layer that each get cured in just 60 seconds under the Gelous UV/LED Lamp.

When removed correctly, damage to your nails from a gel manicure will be minimal. Using Gelous tools makes this process a simple, 15-20 minute exercise.

To start with, a light buff of the nail surface removes the shiny Top Coat. You’ll then cover each nail with a Lint Free Pad soaked in Nail Polish Remover and clip in place with the Removal Clips. After letting this sit for 15 minutes you can gently remove the polish with an Orangewood Cuticle Stick. Following this, a soothing coat of Blueberry or Osmanthus Cuticle Oil replenishes your nails with hyrdrating nutrients.

The Tech

Gel polish is made up of acrylic monomers and oligomers that bond together when placed under the UV/LED Gel Nail Lamp. This process is called "curing" and in just 60 seconds, the once-liquid gel turns into a hard coating.

With usability in mind, Gelous UV/LED Gel Nail Lamps have a spacious design — perfect for manicures or pedicures. They contain 30 premium dual wave LEDs that last up to 50,000 hours and dry gel polish quickly and efficiently. The LED bulbs, are much safer than UV bulbs, last longer and take less time to dry your nails — it’s a win-win!

Gelous Gel Polish and the Gelous UV/LED Gel Nail Lamp are totally compatible, with the UV/LED Lamp operating at 365-405nm and the gel polish curing within this wavelength.
