How to rebuild a nail with Gel

Preparation of the nail

Accessories: Gloves - Base coat or DryFix Base - Cleaner - Gel for highly viscous three-phase system - Millimeter papers - File - Enamels and decoration materials - UV lamp - Nail Prep or Primer - Cuticle pusher

Let's put on the gloves and get started.


We steam the client's tools and hands with disinfectant.


We dry our hands well with a towel.


With the nippers, we cut off the excess cuticles.


We push the small cuticles along the perimeter of the nail, using the cuticle pusher or the orange stick.


We use the file (side 180) to give the preferred shape to the nails.


We take the finishing block and uniformly mattify the nail.


Now with a cotton pad moistened with FluidPro, we clean the surface of the nail from dusty residues.

Application of the gel

Accessories: Gel - Color - Base - Top - Pressed cotton pad - Cleaner - FluidPro® - UV or LED lamp - Cuticle oil - Brush - Acrysolution - Primer


We apply the Primer and wait for it to dry completely, in the air.


Now let's apply a THIN and HOMOGENEOUS layer of Base, taking care not to touch the cuticles.


We catalyze in a UV lamp for 120 sec. (in LED lamp 60 sec.)


Now, with a DRY pad we eliminate the dispersion released by the Base, passing it on the surface of the nail. Don't be afraid, let's do it decisively.


We spread the Builder Gel LCI making the camber and polymerize, in case of lengthening apply the Builder Gel LCI directly on the paper or on the artificial nail and polymerize


Now we shape (almond, round, etc) to the nail with a file, clean the residues very well with a brush and wet pad of FluidPro. Now we are ready to apply the Top. We make a homogeneous, thin layer and catalyze it in a UV lamp for 240 sec., That is 2 timer cycles (in a 120 sec. Led lamp).


We take a small square of pressed cotton, moisten with the Cleaner, shape and clean the surface from the dispersion of the Top.


At this point we can proceed, if we wish, to the application of the semi-permanent!

What is dispersion?

The dispersion can be given both by the Base and by the Top. It is a thin and sticky layer caused by the excessive amount of product applied.

Useful tips


We take care not to leave any part of the nail shiny when we opacify it, at the beginning of the manicure.


We always keep the tools clean and sanitized in order not to favor the creation of bacteria that are harmful to the health of our nails.


We never exceed with the products, it is preferable to add as we check the progress of our manicure.


We do not leave any part of the nail not covered by the base. Here, too, we check by looking at the surface against the light. I recommend that it is a thin layer, otherwise, a thick layer could give problems of color duration and excessive dispersion.


We pay attention to position the hand well, so that all the fingers are pointing uniformly under the beam of the bulbs. We don't bend our thumbs much but we try to stretch it out as best we can.


File and shape the gel will release a significant amount of powder, so we take care to clean the nail surface very well with a brush and FluidPro, before starting the application of the products (base, gel, etc.)
