How to Apply Gels
Clean your nails
Wash your hands before using the Glaize prep juice to make sure your nails are oil and cream free
Wipe your nails using the prep juice & pad provided in your starter kit
Peel a gel and stick it onto your nail
Make sure you leave a small gap between your cuticle and the gel
Do not stick the gel on your cuticle
Press down your gels firmly
Make sure the gels are pressed down smoothly and firmly onto your nails
It helps to use a cuticle stick to push them down especially around the base of the nails
Remove length buffer by filing downward or clipping off with a nail clipper
Make sure you file downward
If your nails are short, use a nail clipper
Do not angle the file toward your gels
Ta da! Your nails look AMAZING!
Avoid washing your hands immediately after you've applied the gels to ensure that the adhesive is activated properly
When you’re ready for a change, simply peel off the gels from the cuticle, peeling upwards to the tip of your nail
Lift and peel off gently to remove
When you’re ready for a change, simply lift the gels from the base of your nails using a cuticle stick and peel off gently
Soaking your hands in warm water will make it easier to peel off the gels
Applying hand cream around the edges of your cuticles also helps makes the removal more gentle
If there’s any excess adhesive on your nails, you can simply wipe it off with some prep juice
Why do I need to take photos of my hands?
We use the four photos that you provide to create your nail masks using computer vision which we then use to make your made-to-measure gels
How many gel manicures are included in each Glaize set?
Each Glaize set includes 15 made-to-measure gels (5 for your right hand, 5 for your left hand and 5 extra in case you need them)
What are your stick-on products made of?
We have 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
How do I remove them?
Simply peel them off- if you're struggling to remove your nail art stickers, use some hand cream to help loosen them
Can I apply hand cream or cuticle oil while I have my gels on?
Absolutely! You just need to avoid using hand cream or cuticle oil directly before or after you apply gels.
Does the Glaize prep juice contain acetone?
Nop! The prep juice is just rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) and is a lot more gentle on your nails than acetone.
