Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish was the first brush-in-bottle gel-polish ever invented.
They revolutionized the industry. Gelish was the first gel polish to be packaged in a bottle, with a brush, as a quick, easy and efficient gel application process. Since 2009, Gelish has produced over 100 colors and counting, and sold in over 80 countries worldwide.
It is a soak off gel nail product that lasts for up to three weeks with no chipping or fading, however it is not indestructible. Gelish cannot be in-filled the same way as enhancements are so it must always be removed and reapplied
How is it applied – firstly the nails have to be prepared by removing the cuticle and dehydrating the nail, the nail then has to be buffed lightly, it is then applied just like nail polish except each layer has to be cured in a UV or LED lamp. After the top coat there will be a sticky layer left on the nail called the inhibition layer this needs to be removed with a special liquid (99% alcohol).
Is it suitable for everyone – It is suitable for most people It covers ridged nails very well and the final appearance will be very smooth and super shiney. It is a natural nail treatment that will add some strength to your nails but it cannot be used to increase the length of the nail, it can be applied over acrylic or gel enhancements.
How is it removed – it must be soaked off with acetone (nail polish remover will not work) for approx 20 mins. It is important that the gel is not picked off or scrapped off as it will remove layers of the nail and result in damage to the nail.
