Gum Gel 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.

Start with a base coat...

  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, it will still be tacky but this is normal.
  3. Using an extension tip that fits your nail apply a small amount of Bluesky Gum Gel into the tip using an orangewood stick.
  4. Using a small amount of cleanser on your orangewood stick, spread the Gum Gel into the tip to the length required.
  5. Once you have applied the Gum Gel onto the tip to your desired length, use a small brush and a small amount of cleanser to apply to the gel.
  6. Cover the nail with the gel side of the tip. Using your small brush and a small amount of cleanser, wipe around the nail edge (where the extension rests near to the edge of your nail).
  7. Cure for 60 seconds.
  8. Using your Bluesky Nail File, file into your desired shape. Then, use your Bluesky Buffer to buff over the gel to smooth.
  9. Using a Bluesky Cleanser Wipe,wipe over the nail to remove dust and debris. 
  10. Now, you can apply your Base Coat, Gel Colour and Top Coat as normal, or just add a Top Coat for a super natural finish.
  11. To clean your Nail Extension Brush, simply use Cleanser and a Lint Free Wipe. You can also use a Bluesky Cleanser Wipe in place of the Cleanser and lint-free square as these are lint-free and pre-soaked with Cleanser.
