  4. Clean your nails with a Bluesky Cleanser Wipe.

Get creative with some easy nail art...

  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 nail lamp, it will still be tacky but this is normal.
  3. Apply your chosen colour coat in the same way as the base coat; a thin coat, cap the end, avoid your skin. Cure the gel polish for 60 seconds.
  4. 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.
  5.  Use a Bluesky Cleanser Wipe to wipe the tacky layer off the nail – this is so the Bluesky Striping Tape can be removed easily without damaging the gel manicure.
  6. Apply Bluesky Striping Tape in your desired pattern before applying a second gel polish colour, ensuring you don’t go over the lines. Once happy, cure for 60 seconds.
  7.  Carefully peel off the tape before applying your Bluesky Top Coat and curing for 60 seconds.
  8. Use a Bluesky Cleanser Wipe to remove the sticky residue leaving super shiny nails.
