You Need a Light

If you want your gel manicure to look professional and last, you need to have a UV light. This light is important because it is needed to cure the gel polish after each coat. This means that you will only get professional quality results if you have a UV light that you can use to cure your gel nail polish after each coat is applied. Many of the gel polish kits that are sold in stores come equipped with a high quality light. You just need to do a little bit of research beforehand to make sure that you are buying the best UV light possible for your gel manicures.

Light Coats

It is also important to remember that when you are applying gel nail polish that you need to apply each coat lightly. There is no way to avoid applying multiple layers of gel polish to your nails. You will get a more flawless look if you apply each layer lightly and allow it to cure fully before the next layer of gel polish is applied. This will give you salon results. It might be a little time consuming to keep applying layer after layer, but your gel polish will be more likely to last if you apply each layer lightly.


The best part about gel nail manicures at home is that you can add detailing that also makes them stand out. You might choose to add jewels or shimmer depending on what you think looks best.
