Getting Semi-Cured Gel Manicures is a great way to show off your polish. Gel manicures are the most popular type of pedicure because they last up to 2 weeks and require minimal upkeep. However, gel manicures can also be a pain in the rear. So, if you’re looking for some tips on how to get semi-cured gel nails, we’ve got one for you! Follow these steps for an easy tutorial on how to have semi-cured gel nails that look amazing every time!
Nail Art Pens
Nail art pens are the easiest way to get semi-cured gel nails. If you’re the type of person who likes to change your nail polish often, it can be difficult to stick with one manicure for two weeks. But with these pens, you can have your favorite color on your nails every day and never worry about messing up or damaging the polish.
The best part is that they come in a wide range of colors–you’ll never run out of the perfect shade!
Here’s how to use them: First, pick your preferred design and find the right color. Second, get some paint on your brush. However, if you prefer a thicker line, apply some gel top coat after you’ve painted on your design. Finally, start painting away and voilà! You’ve got an amazing manicure that will last two weeks without any effort at all!
Step by step instructions for semi-cured gel nails
1) Apply the gel polish.
2) Apply cuticle oil to your nails.
3) Top with a lacquer of your choice.
4) Let your nails cure for 3-5 minutes.
5) Remove the top coat and enjoy tidying up!
Paint the nail with a base coat
When you first paint your nails, you have to make sure you’re painting in the correct direction. The best way is to go with the grain of the natural nail. This will ensure that your manicure lasts as long as possible without chipping or peeling. After you’ve painted your nails, go ahead and allow them to dry before continuing on with the tutorial!
Step one: Paint with a base coat
After washing your hands, apply a thin layer of clear polish over your natural nail. Varnish should always be applied before gel polish since gel polish will eat away at varnish. Next, use a brush or cloth to paint on a clear base coat over the entire nail and let it dry completely by waiting 5-10 minutes.
Step two: Air dry then seal with top coat
After painting on the base coat, give your nails 10-15 minutes to air dry completely before applying a second layer of clear polish and letting it dry completely again. (It’s important not to rush this step so that the gel polish doesn’t smudge!) After the second layer has dried completely, apply a thin layer of top coat over your nails and wait another 10-15 minutes.
Apply a nail art color to the nail
Nail art colors are becoming more and more popular. They’re less expensive than gel manicures, they’re easier to apply than regular polish, and they look great with any gel manicure.
So how do you get semi-cured gel nails? Well, for starters, you’ll need a nail art color that can be applied to the top coat of your gel mani. So if you want to go the extra mile and have semi-cured nails from a nail art color application, then this tutorial is for you!
To start off with, paint your nails as usual in a color that matches your natural skin tone. Allow your polish to dry completely before adding another coat of polish. When it’s dry, take a small dotting tool or toothpick and dip it into the nail art color and begin to swirl it on your nails. Apply light pressure so that you don’t smudge the original polish underneath it (even though you will lose some of the original color). After applying an even coat of nail art color onto all ten fingers, let them dry completely again before applying top coat over them to seal everything in place!
Apply a top coat
The first step to semi-cured gel manicures is applying a top coat, which strengthens the color and prevents fading. To get the most out of your top coat, you should apply it with nails facing upwards on a flat surface and make sure you leave about a millimeter of the base coat visible.
To speed up the process, use a UV lamp to cure your gel nails at home. Just place your hand under the UV light for 30 seconds, then place your hand back under normal lighting for 30 seconds. Repeat this step until your nails are completely cured. If you’re impatient like me and want some faster results, place your hands in warm water for about 10 minutes before applying a top coat. This will also soften up any hard edges and give you smoother, less noticeable nail beds!
If all else fails, consider picking up an LED light to cure your nails without damaging them in any way. The LED light will cure the nail polish in just seconds instead of hours or days!
