How to apply UV gel on nails: casting

Here are the steps required to cover your nails with UV gel in a precise and aesthetically pleasing way.

1) After having properly opacified the entire surface, apply the primer as if it were a glaze and wait for it to dry completely.

2) Apply the base gel as if it were an enamel and catalyze in a UV lamp for 120 seconds / three minutes depending on the times indicated on the jar of gel.

3) Using the dotter or the brush create a ball of builder UVgel and place it in the center of the nail surface. On the point of stress, work it by distributing it downwards to the sides and finally on the edge.

4) Turn the nail over, tap the fingertip lightly and wait a few seconds. It cures in a UV lamp for the necessary time.

5) Degrease to remove the dispersion layer and if necessary, fix the structure with a file creating a perfect C curve.
