It’s not just about the quality of gel product that you apply to your client’s nails, it’s also very much about how you apply it.
Says nail technician Elaine Timcke: “Preparation is the most important part of a gel application. Always ensure you spend enough time effectively preparing the nails and cleaning the cuticle area to ensure the gel application lasts long and does not lift.
“Proper preparation will also aid in ease of application. Good preparation can sometimes take longer than the application, if done correctly. Don’t skip any steps.”
