Gelish Soak-Off Gel

What is Gelish?
Gelish is a soak-off gel polish, which can be applied like nail polish (with a brush), but must be cured in either a LED lamp for 30 secs or in UV lamp for 2 mins. Please note that this is not a nail polish, and will NOT air dry.

With proper application, the Gelish colour can stay on your nails for up to 3 weeks with no chipping or peeling. For removal, you only need to soak it off with the remover for about 15 mins.

Please also note that the Gelish top & base cannot be used with normal nail polish, like OPI. They can only be used with soak-off gel colours.

In order to apply Gelish on your nails, you will need the following items:
1) Gelish Foundation Base Gel (15ml/0.5oz)
2) Gelish Top It Off Gel (15ml/0.5oz)
3) Gelish Cleanser (120ml/4oz ; 480ml/16oz)
4) Gelish Soak Off Gel Remover (120ml/4oz ; 480ml/16oz)
5) UV (36 Watt) or LED Lamp
6) Gelish Gel Polish (15ml/0.5oz)

*If you have very weak nails that always peel or break, you may also require Gelish Structure Clear Gel (15g/0.5oz).  

You can find out more on each item below.

Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish Application Guide

Gelish Soak-Off Gel Polish Removal Guide
1) Using a 180grit file, gently file the surface of the Gelish Top It Off to break the seal and remove shine.
2) Saturate a cotton wool with Gelish Soak-Off and apply to the top of the nail surface.
3) Wrap finger with soaked cotton wool tightly with aluminium foil (cut into square pieces), and allow to sit for 10mins.
4) Use a twisting motion to firmly remove the aluminium wrap from 1 nail at a time. If a significant amount of gel remains on the nail, re-wrap the finger with the aluminium foil, to allow the Gelish Soak-Off to penetrate longer. You can re-soak the cotton wool with more Gelish Soak-Off before re-wrapping the finger.
5) Gently push any residual gel from the nail using orange stick.
6) Gently buff surface of nails with buffer and apply cuticle oil around the nails.

If you are re-applying Gelish Soak Off Gel Polish, after step 5), refer to Application Guide.
If you are doing a manicure, you can start after step 5).
