Procedure for applying Gelous colour on natural nails

Step 1

Prep all 10 nails – see previous post for my Prep method

Step 2

Apply 1 coat of Gel base to 3/4 of the nail only.

Dip into natural set powder (natural set provides extra strength and durability)

Repeat on all 10 nails

Step 3

Apply 1 coat of Gelous base.  Dip into gelous powder.

Repeat on all 10 nails.

Step 4

Repeat step 3

Step 5

Apply 1 more coat of Gelous base.

Dip into Natural set SHEER

*After dipping 1 hand I like to apply sealer to this hand before dipping the second hand – it allows more drying time for the next step.

Natural set sheer is your final coat which will protect your colour before the buffing stage.

Step 6

Apply Sealer over entire nail.

Step 7

Shape nails, file surface to smooth out any bumps.

Step 8

Block buff to smooth out the nail surface.

Step 9

Wash hands.

Step 10

Ensure nails are completely dry – remove any traces of moisture with a lint free square.

Step 11

Apply Sealer over entire nail on all 10 nails.

Step 12

Apply two thin coats of Top gel

Wait 1- 2 minutes to dry completely.

    I have tried doing SNS dipping a few times. As I wanted to get more serious with it I went on line and found your instructions last night and I have just followed them today and have had great success. I thank you for the tip about the brushes not going hard and will follow that in future.
    I will not have to take all my gel machine on holidays in future, much easier doing SNS dipping.
