These simple steps are all it takes to get a perfect glossy manicure that will last 3 weeks!

For a brilliant manicure that you want to last for 3-4 weeks we suggest using Gel II® G002 – French Pink underneath the gel color of choice! This added layer of gel polish helps strengthen the foundation of your manicure without using harmful base coats, bond-aids, and primers.

To guarantee the best long lasting manicure use the entire Gel II® Manicure system, including our NEW Gel II® LED cordless light!

Step 1

Shape nails using a Crystal File or 240 Grit Board File. (Buffing is optional by using 220/280 buffer. Preferred for oily nails.)

Step 2

Cleanse nails with Gel II® Super Shine.

Step 3

Polish thin layer of Gel II® No Base Coat Polish of choice and cure under Gel II® LED light for 50 seconds. (We do not recommend a UV lamp cure. To guarantee superior results use the Gel II® LED light. Shake bottle for 30 seconds before each use.)

Apply second coat and let hand rest under light for another 50 seconds.

Step 5

Polish over color with Gel II® Extreme Top Coat and rest hand under light for 50 seconds.
