Frequently Asked Questions
This is by far the most common question we receive. Once the gel has cured on your nail under the UV or LED light, it will still have a tacky layer on the top. This needs to be removed with finishing wipe (a liquid) using a nail wipe. This will remove the tacky layer.

There are two types of gel .. soak-off and buff-off. Buff-off is much more durable and will not soak off in acetone. One also gets finishing products like our UV Glaze which create a high gloss protective layer which can be hard to break. It always helps to use a nail file to “break the seal” on the gel before soaking in acetone. Do this by filing away the top layer of product on each nail.
This problem is generally caused by incorrect preparation of the nail bed before applying product. Gently buff the nail and if possible, make sure to use a primer, nail prep or bond-it. This clears the nail bed of moisture and natural oils and prepares it for maximum adhesion. Not capping the front edge of the nail with product also leaves a weak spot which will allow the product to lift.
