The importance of self-leveling the nail polish is due to the perfect adhesion to the nail which allows you to correct any type of imperfection.
Its high viscosity allows you to level the nail to your liking by modifying its shape without using files.
This type of gel has a high degree of compactness but at the same time remains flexible and uniform and does not create unevenness, keeping the nail smooth and shiny.
The protocol to follow is as follows
- Spray the almond oil cleaner directly on your hands or feet to degrease the nail
- Push back the cuticles with a cuticle pusher
- Mattify nails with buffer
- If necessary, to optimize adhesion, apply a thin layer of adhesion optimizer. polymerize 120 sec. uv or 60 sec led
- Apply a layer of semi-permanent soak-off base, paying particular attention to sealing the tip and without touching the cuticles. polymerize 120 sec. uv or 60 sec led
- Apply a thin layer of colored semi-permanent gel. polymerize 120 sec. uv or 60 sec led
- If necessary, apply a second thin layer of colored semi-permanent gel. polymerize 120 sec. uv or 60 sec led
- Apply a thin layer of semi-permanent top, paying attention to the sides and tip and cure for 120 sec. uv or 60 sec led
The peculiarity of these glazes, in addition to being self-levelling, is the soak off removal technique.
What does the soak off technique consist of?
This technique, which is placed between the gel and the semi-permanent, does not require a file, like normal nail polishes, but is removed using special solvents. They are softer products than gel and do not create a thick layer on the nail but mold themselves onto it.
- Apply Aluminum Foil soaked in Removal Soak-Off to the nail
- Leave to act for 10/12 minutes (depending on the type of nail, thickness and colour)
- Remove the semi-permanent gel polish with a wooden stick.
- Use the buffer to buff your nails and apply cuticle oil
