I think we can all agree that gel manicures are amazing. They last longer than traditional manicures and are just better in general. However, not everyone knows about these 5 tips that will allow you to achieve a long-lasting gel manicure that lasts 2-3 weeks!
Tips For a Long Lasting Gel Manicure:
Here are five tips for a long-lasting gel manicure that nobody talks about:
- Always Message Your Cuticles With Oil:
There are so many things that are important for a gel manicure to look good. Among them is leaving your cuticles in a healthy state. If you don’t take care of your cuticles, then the gel polish will not stick on your nails as well. You will end up chipping and you will need to reapply your gel polish every other day.
- Using Base Coat on Dry Nails:
To get the most out of your gel nail polish, you need to apply a base coat on dry nails. The best time to do this is right after you have clipped and filed your nails. Base coats give a smooth surface to the nail and block staining from coming through the polish.
- Using Quality Gel Polish:
Use high-quality gel nail polish. Any professional manicurist will tell you that this is the most important thing. BLUESKY has excellent formulas that last a long time.
- Using Top Coat With a Thicker Consistency:
Use a top coat that has more shine, is not matte, and is thicker than normal polish.
- Letting Polish Dry Between Coats:
Apply at least two coats of color and make sure to let each one dry before applying another coat, even if they are different colors. At least wait for a couple of minutes between each coat.
