GelMoment Application Tips
Roll the polish bottle instead of shaking it
Rolling instead of shaking prevents bubbles in the polish.
Avoid UV light
GelMoment Gel Polish is light sensitive. Don’t paint outdoors as the UV will start setting the polish. Some light fittings are now LED, so make sure to not be directly under them. Keep the bottle away from the lamp when you are curing the polish. Always close the lid of the bottle once finished to prevent the polish in the bottle from setting.
Make sure your nails are dry after the cleanser wipe
If your nails are not completely dry it will affect the polish.
Apply thin coats
If the polish is applied too thick the it won’t cure properly. It is better to do multiple thin coats than one thick coat.
Cap the end of the nail
Capping the end of the nail helps prevent chipping and makes your manicure last longer!
Avoid washing your hands with dish soap prior to applying GelMoment Gel Polish
Residue on the nail from various soaps, creams and lotions must be completely cleaned away from the nail bed prior to applying the gel polish. The polish is designed to adhere to the natural nail, so any residue can inhibit proper adhesion. You can also use GelMoment Purify at least 30 minutes before polish application to help remove these impurities. However if you do use this product, you still need to buff and cleanse as per the application instructions.
Excessive soaking in water should be avoided prior to and once polish has been applied
Nails are made of many layers of a hard protective protein called keratin, similar to hair, which can lift and separate with water infiltration.
Do not apply hand creams prior to applying GelMoment Gel Polish
Some hand creams can be oily, interfering with the adhesion of the gel polish, which can result in bubbling, peeling and chipping.
Allow creams to completely absorb before applying GelMoment polish
If you do want to apply creams, do so in advance to allow them to absorb. Follow all the recommended GelMoment nail preparation instructions before polish application, to ensure optimal results.
