I am so excited to share with you my new gel nail polish line. I have been using this product for months and I’m absolutely in love! Gel nail polish is a great way to add some extra style and personality to your nails. It’s also a great way to protect them from the elements and make them last longer.
The gel nail polish that we use is called All About You. The company was started by two women who were looking for a way to create their own gel nail art at home. The company has grown over the past few years and now has over 100 different colors of gel nail polish available!
My favorite thing about All About You is how easy it is to apply. It’s incredibly simple, just paint on the color of your choice and then let dry for 20 minutes before applying another coat if needed.
You can purchase All About You online or at any beauty supply store near you!
The class will be held at the All About You Studio in East London, where youll meet nail technicians Patricia and Amy. Theyll show you how to use a UV lamp as well as how to remove gel nail polish at home.
Patricia and Amy will also offer tips on how to look after your nails and improve their condition, while theyre doing your gel nail polish.
As well as learning how to apply gel nail polish, you will also learn how to create your own designs with the help of some top quality tools, including brushes and stencils.
Youll even get a goody bag with polishes, a file and a buffer to take home with you!
Learn how to apply gel nail polish at home. All you need is the right equipment and a little practice, and you can do your own nails at home with professional results.
The first step in applying gel nail polish is to prepare the natural nail – this includes ensuring that you have no polish on your nails. You will also need to cut your nails to the desired length and shape, and then file them down so they are smooth. The next step is applying a thin coat of base coat onto the nails, followed by curing under the UV lamp. This allows the base coat to harden into a protective layer for your nails. Next it’s time to apply your first colour coat, making sure that it is not too thick. Once this has been applied, you will need to cure it under the UV lamp for a few minutes before touching up any areas that may not have received enough coverage during the first application. Then apply another thin colour coat and cure again under the UV lamp for a few minutes. If you want extra shine, you can apply a thin layer of topcoat and cure again under the UV lamp for another few minutes before removing any sticky residue from your nails with a cotton pad soaked in polish remover or alcohol. Finally, add some cuticle
I am currently having a manicure for my wedding in 3 weeks. The colour I chose was OPI’s ‘Alpine Snow’. After having a second coat of the polish on, my nails are looking a little dull. I decided to jazz up my nails with some fabulous nail art using the gel polish I bought from eBay.
I used the following products to create this look: Cotton buds, Gel Cleanser and Lint Free Wipes (these are all available from eBay too). For the nail art I used OPI’s Alpine Snow White Gel Polish, Nail Art Pen in Silver, Nail Art Pen in Black, a striping brush and an orange stick.
Gel nail polish is not the same as traditional nail polish and requires a slightly different application. Gel nail polish is applied in a two-step process; the base coat and then the color coat. The color coat is then “cured” under a UV light for 1-2 minutes. This makes gel nail polish very durable, but also means that it must be removed properly.
I would strongly recommend to anyone thinking about getting a gel manicure to try out this product first. It will give you an idea of whether or not you like having gel on your nails, and what products to use when getting it professionally done.
