Lexan 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. Fix a Bluesky Nail Form to your nail. Take a small amount of Lexan Gel onto your extension brush and apply to your nail, extending to your desired length.
  4. Turn the nail upside down for a few seconds to let the product self-level.
  5. Once happy, cure for 5 seconds in your Bluesky Nail Lamp.
  6. Apply more product to build a strong apex and repeat steps 4 and 5, remembering to only cure for 5 seconds.
  7. Pinch the sides of the form to remove from your nail. File your nail into shape and use a buffer to remove the shine.
  8. Wipe away debris with a Cleanser Wipe and you can now apply your Base, Gel Colour and Top Coat following our guide for gel polish application.

Top tips for Lexan Gel


  • Make sure you only cure the product for 5 seconds - any longer, and your nails may begin to feel hot under the lamp.
  • To clean your Nail Extension Brush, simply use our Smart Cleanser to remove all product from your brush. Apply a small amount to a palette or flat surface and soak the brush in the solution. 
  • To remove Lexan Gel, you can simply soak this off using Bluesky Remover following our removal process for gel products.
