Step 1: Push back cuticles with a pusher, buff the nail with a 100 grit file and apply a thin layer of Bonder. (No light required for Bonder)

Step 2. Apply a thin layer of Base/Top Coat. Let cure under light for LED 30 seconds UV 2 minutes.

Step 3. Polish! Always use thin layers to prevent a rippling affect.

Step 4. Cure Gel Polish for UV 2 minutes/LED 30s

Manicure is still going strong!! ZERO chips.

 Day 8!! Minimal tip ware. This polish will last and last. Nail Lovers....I am a nail tech student. I work with heavy duty acetone, liquid monomer and such EVERY day. Refer to my pointer finger. There are lots of scratches due to me filing clients nails and hitting my own. NaiLuv UV/LED Gel Polish is AWESOME!!!


Merry Mermaid is a beautiful teal polish with teal/silver shimmer. GORGEOUS!! Pictures do not do this beauty justice.

Barely any ware. Just a little growth gap at the cuticle area! Impressive :-)

  1. They looked great and I would only do those in Salons cos I think I will mess up if I try doing it myself...

    I don't have and LED lamp either so :( But I love the colors thou looks very strong and bright and Happy


    1. It does take some practice to get an even result. However, NaiLuv lasts a very long time without chipping. Pretty neat!

  2. Thanks for this - I just used it for the first time and I thought it just wasn;t drying - now I read this and see that it has a sticky feel that I have to take off :P -- silly me ;) THANKS

    1. Very glad I could help! Hope you are enjoying your NailLuv

  3. Just bought this and tried it. I used three coats and the tips don't have polish on them. Almost as if the polish is really thin and it ran. there is more at the cuticle although I painted it in an even coat each time. I'm going to try again soo hoping it just takes some practice

    1. Use very thin even coats. Try curing 1 finger at a time as you polish 1 finger at a time. Hope this helps!

    2. I always do an extra swipe across the tip of my nail because gel has a tendency to pull from the tip.

    3. Sandra,

      Have you tried any other gel systems with this lamp?

    4. Hi Suburban Glam, The lamp I used in this post is a Gelish brand UV lamps. Works well with all UV gel polishes. I have however upgraded to an LED lamp for my personal use.

  4. I usually have a gel top coat applied after I get acrylics, and I've had the problem with it not sticking many times. It's just little spots that look like you put water and the water ran off. Weird. Some dries and stays, some just pushes away from an area.

    1. Try applying a thin coat of base or foundation, cure, then add a thin coat of top coat. Hope this helps!

  5. they came out really cool..i love the last color

  6. I love gels and have some, I really need to get back into using them!
