1.  Push your Cuticles Back

Apply Cuticle Softener to the cuticles. This enzymatic solution softens the skin around the nails to facilitate a gentler and deeper clean. Push the cuticle back using the arched end of the Gel Removal Tool.

2.  Double Cleanse Your Cuticles

This step is unique to the Gelcare technique. With the bladed end of your Gel Removal Tool, use small circular motions to dislodge any dry skin stuck under the cuticles. If needed, add more Cuticle Softener to the nails to help loosen the skin further when executing this step.

3.  Buff Your Nails

Buffing not only smoothes the nail surface, it allows for better Base Coat adhesion by creating a subtle texture on the surface of the nails.

4.  File Your Nails

Using the more abrasive side (100) of the Curved Nail File, we want to file the excess skin on the sides of the nails first, which often causes the gel to lift. To do this, sit file in the crease of the lateral fold and file gently. Apply pressure towards the side of the nail and not downwards, which can cause paper cuts.

5.  Wash Your Hands

Wash your hands with soap and water. Using the Nail Scrubber Brush, scrub over and under your nails. Washing your hands also prepares the skin for the next step: cuticle trimming. When the skin is damp, the cuticles soften and become translucent, making them easier to trim.

6.  Trim Your Cuticles

If necessary, trim off excess cuticles with the Cuticle Nipper. Make sure to always look between the blades so you know exactly where you are about to cut. For a clean trim, use the tip of the blades and gently cut the cuticle in one long piece. If cutting your cuticles scares you, skip this step!

7.  Apply the Base Coat

On one nail at a time, apply an even layer of Base Coat and immediately set your application by curing the gel under the LED Lamp for 5 seconds. If you do not set the gel, the application will not be as precise.

Once the base is applied and set on all nails, cure for 60 seconds under the LED Lamp. Ensure you slide your hand all the way into the lamp and that your middle finger reaches the embossed trackpad.

8.  Apply the Colour

Apply 3 thin layers of colour. Cure each layer for 60 seconds under the LED Lamp.

Make sure to work with only a small amount of gel on your brush for a flawless application. Use the sides of the bottleneck to wipe off any excess gel. Start by applying the colour to the centre of the nail. Slide the gel up towards the cuticles without touching them. With long and fluid strokes, glide the gel down the sides of the nail to the tip.

9.  Apply the Top Coat

Apply a layer of Top Coat. Cure for 3 minutes under the LED Lamp.

10-Free

By eliminating the 10 most concerning chemical ingredients traditionally found in gel, we offer you a cleaner nail care experience. Here's what our formula promises to leave out.

Hema

A common trigger for reactions in beauty products, emphasizing the need for safer contact with skin.

Toluene

Often inhaled or absorbed through the skin, toluene can cause skin irritation, light-headedness, and nausea due to its impact on the nervous system.

Parabens

Their estrogen-mimicking capabilities have sparked a significant discussion on their impact beyond simple preservation.

Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP)

A plasticizer with connections to serious concerns, pushing us to find safer alternatives.

Formaldehyde

Known for its use in preservation, this chemical can provoke irritation and has been linked to severe concerns due to its carcinogenic properties.

Formaldehyde Resin

Less toxic than its predecessor but not without its own risks, including potential allergenic effects.

Camphor

Acts as a barrier on nails, blocking essential nutrients and leading to discoloration.

Xylene

A known irritant to skin, eyes, and lungs, with potential for systemic toxicity.

Triphenyl Phosphate (TPHP)

Used to enhance flexibility in plastics, its potential as an endocrine disruptor has raised flags about its broader implications.

Ethyl Tosylamide

A fast-drying plasticizer, restricted in Europe due to concerns over antibiotic resistance.
