Trim and file the nails to the desired length, and remove the shine by using the buffer on the surface of the nail. Next, remove the dust by wiping with a lint-free wipe and the Gelish Nail Cleanser to ensure that the nails are oil- and lint-free. Once nails are clean, apply the PH Bond, followed by a thin coat of the Gelish foundation, sealing off the edges. Next, cure the foundation under a UV lamp for one minute before applying the Gelish polish of your choice. After each coat, place the hands under a UV lamp for one minute for lighter colors or two minutes for darker colors before applying the next coat. Finally, apply a coat of Gelish Top It Off gel sealer, and place your hands under a UV lamp for 2 minutes. When nails are tacky, wipe the surface with the Gelish nail cleanser. If desired, apply an optional coat of Nourish cuticle oil to the skin surrounding the nail.
