Step 1
Prep your nails
Start fresh with clean, oil-free nails.
Wash hands with soap and water. Let dry.
Using the prep pad thoroughly clean each nail.
Weak or brittle nails? Apply a base coat to strengthen and protect your nails. Let dry completely.
Avoid using lotion or cuticle oil directly before or after you apply gels.
Step 2
Peel & Apply
It’s easy!
Peel off one gel from the sheet at a time.
Hold the gel over your nail to line it up evenly before applying.
As you apply, leave a small gap between your cuticle and the start of the gel.
Avoid touching the adhesive side as much as possible.
Step 3
Smooth & fold
You’re almost there!
Press firmly to smooth out any wrinkles.
Fold the excess gel over the tip of your nail.
Wait 30 seconds before filing - Use this time to press and smooth each gel again.
Step 4
Clip or file downwards
Using the nail file in your kit, file downwards at the tips of your nails to remove excess gel.
You got this!
Angle the file away from your nail to avoid tearing the gel & to create a clean edge.
For short nails, we recommend using a nail clipper instead of a file.
After filing and removing the excess, press down firmly on your gels to smooth them
Step 5
Seal your gels
Prolong the life of your gel by using a top coat.
Finish by applying a top coat.
Add a bit more over and under
the tip of your nail.
Nothing left to
do but to enjoy
your mani!

Removal
How to remove
Simply peel them off whenever you’re ready!
For extra gentle removal, soak your hands or feet in warm water or apply lotion along the edges of the gels.
If you've used a base coat underneath your gels, remove any remaining residue with nail polish remover.
