Sizing QuestionsQ: Why do I need to take photos of my hands?

A: No, we will use your photos from last time, unless you choose to upload new photos. If you are concerned about your nails growing, please select 'add length to nail tip' so that we can make them a little bit longerQ: What happens if I don't upload any photos of my hands?
A: If we haven't received your hand photos or heard from you within 14 days of placing your order, we will send you a standard-sized set of Glaize gels
Q: Why do I need to place my fingers on a card when taking photos?
A: We use the standard-sized card as a reference object so we can measure your nails to scale
Q: What card should I use?
A: Please use a standard-sized card (ID-1 as per ISO standards). This could be your driver's license, ID card, credit or debit card. If you are using a credit or debit card, please hide your digits as much as possible
Q: What if the made-to-measure gels don’t fit my nails properly?
A: We've been working hard to create the perfect fit, but if something's not quite right, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a couple of pictures and we'll sort out your sizing ASAP!

Application & Removal QuestionsQ: How do I apply my made-to-measure gels?
A: Check out our how to apply guide here
Q: I can’t find my Glaize prep pad or nail file. What can I use instead?
A: If you can't find your prep juice bottle and pad, don't worry! 😘 You can simply use rubbing alcohol and a cotton pad. To remove the excess length, you can use any nail file. Alternatively, a nail clipper also works really well, especially if your nails are short
Q: I’m unable to file my nails because they’re too short. What can I do?
A: If your nails are super short, we recommend using a nail clipper to trim off any excess
Q: How long does it take to apply my made-to-measure gels?
A: It depends on whether this is your first time or not but on average, it should only take about 10 minutes. Seasoned Glaize pros will be even speedier! Check out our how to apply guide if you need any application tips and tricks
Q: Can I apply a base coat or a top coat so my gels last longer and stick better?
A: You could but you don't have to as our gels are already shiny and long-lasting on their own
Q: How do I remove my made-to-measure gels?
A: To remove your gels, simply peel them off gently. We recommend using a cuticle stick to lift off your gels at the corners and applying a bit of cream or oil to your nails when peeling off your gels. SO much easier (and quicker) than wrapping your nails in foil and waiting for gel to dissolve!
Q: How should I dispose of my gels?
A: In the same way you would with regular gel nails. Once removed, our gels should be disposed of in the bin
Ingredient & Health QuestionsQ: What are Glaize made-to-measure gels made of?
A: Our stick-ons are made from UV gels which we've developed from scratch in the UK. We've developed a unique gel formula that not only incorporates bio-based materials, making it more sustainable than traditional manicures, but also offers high-performance shine & longevity. Our gels are cruelty-free, toxin-free and vegan
Q: What does toxin-free mean?
A: Our gels are free from Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, parabens, animal by-products and fragrance
Q: Do your gels contain acrylates?
A: Our gels are mainly made up of methacrylates. The gels are fully cured, which means that the methacrylates are locked into the gels, so they shouldn't come into contact with the nail. Most allergic reactions occur because of uncured methacrylates. We have conducted non animal based testing that confirmed that our gels are non-skin irritating. Our gels DO NOT contain the following acrylates: (meth)acrylic acid, methyl methacrylate, ethyl methacrylate, 2-ethylhexyl acrylate, 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA).
Q: Are your gels vegan?
Q: Are your gels cruelty-free?
A: Yes they are and we wouldn't have it any other way!
Q: Can I wear your gels if I'm pregnant?
A: Yes, our gels are safe to wear during pregnancy
Q: What are you doing to become more sustainable?
A: We’re striving to make our products and packaging as sustainable as possible. Our unique gel formula incorporates bio-based materials, which makes it more sustainable than traditional manicures, and we'll continue to improve our formulations regularly. Our gels are also cruelty-free, toxin-free and vegan. You can read more about our sustainability efforts here
