How to apply Glaize gelsUpdated 2 months ago

  • Wash and dry your hands, then push your cuticles back
  • Prep your nails with your prep pad and juice to remove any excess oils
  • Start with your little finger: peel the gel from the gel sheet (you might need to bend it to help to release the gel) and stick it onto your nail, leaving a gap between your cuticle and the gel
  • Press the gel down firmly and smooth it over
  • Now to remove the excess length: flip your hand and clip off the majority of the excess. Then file in a downwards motion at 90 degrees to remove any remaining excess. DON'T file left to right, as this will tear your gel. For shorter nails, you may find it easier to just clip (without filing)
  • Repeat for all of your nails, until you've got yourself a gorgeous Glaize mani 💅

Top Tips: The adhesive on the back of your gels is activated by pressure, so really press them down to encourage your gels to bond. Take care to be a little bit gentle with your gels for the first few hours, as they take a few hours to fully adhere to your nails.

If your gels feel a little bit hard, particularly during cold weather, we recommend warming them up before applying. You can do this against a cup of tea, with a hairdryer or by placing them on a radiator for a few seconds.
