Make sure to avoid touching your nails once they are ready for a gel polish application.
Gel Polish Application STEP by STEP
- Apply a thin layer of Urban Graffiti Basecoat evenly. Don’t forget to cap the free edge of the nail and cure for 30 seconds in an LED lamp or for 2 minutes in UV Lamp.
- Apply the first layer of your chosen Urban Graffiti Gel Polish thinly. To Avoid flooding cuticles leave a small gap between gel polish colour and cuticle area. Cap the free edge. Cure again, for 30 seconds in an LED lamp or for 2 minutes in UV Lamp.
- If needed apply a second layer of Urban Graffiti Gel Polish and cure it.
- Once all layers are cured, apply our Urban Graffiti Topcoat for a long-lasting shine. Cap the free edge and cure for 30 seconds in an LED lamp or for 2 minutes in UV Lamp.
- Urban Graffiti Topcoat leaves no sticky layer, saving you an extra step and time. Treat your nails with a little bit of Naio Nails Cuticle Oil to bring any moisture back to your nails.
