What you should know about Gel base & Top coat

Updated: Jun 5, 2021

Gel products are fast becoming the go to option when getting your nails done. Gels are replacing the normal nail polish because it does not need the constant painting and gives our nails some longevity in looking polished!

Your base coat should be a soft gel because soft gels consists of molecules with high weight and long structures. This helps when removing it with acetone because of the spaces in the structure.

Soft gels can also be used on natural nails to add a bit of length and has to be cured with a UV or LED lights between coats.

It should last between 2-4 weeks.

Top coats- these normally work the same way as the gel base coat. Curing time is about 30-90 seconds and they should leave you with a glossy high end finish.
