Gel Paint Tutorial


Preparation is everything...

  1. Use the Bluesky Nail File to file your nails to the desired shape.
  2. Push back and trim your cuticles.
  3. Gently buff your nails with your Bluesky Nail Buffer.
  4. Clean your nails with a Bluesky Cleanser Wipe.

Excellence is in the detail...

  1. Apply a thin layer of Bluesky Base Coat to all five nails, capping the ends. Avoid the skin and cuticle.
  2. Cure for 60 seconds under the Bluesky lamp.
  3. Apply your desired gel polish in the same way as the base coat; a thin coat, cap the end, avoid the skin. 
  4. Cure for 60 seconds.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 building up the colour each time. 1 coat will give a sheer finish, 2 is normal, 3 will be a solid colour.
  6. With a fine brush, get your Bluesky Gel Paint and begin drawing your desired nail design. You can place the paint on a palette and take from there or go directly from the tub.
  7. Slowly start creating your pattern. Don't rush this step: make sure you control the pattern and that you're using a very thin nail art brush.
  8. Once you've finished your design, cure for 60 seconds.
  9. Here, you can add any further gel paint or nail art to your design. Ensure you cure for 60 seconds once finished.
  10. Apply a Bluesky Top Coat and cure for 60 seconds.
  11. Use a Bluesky Cleanser Wipe to remove the sticky residue leaving super shiny nails.
