1. What is Gel Nail Polish?

Gel Nail Polish is a high-quality nail product designed to provide long-lasting, salon-quality manicures at home. It offers a glossy, chip-resistant finish similar to that achieved in professional nail salons.

2. How to Apply Gel Nail Polish?

  • Start by preparing your nails – clean, trim, and shape them as desired.
  • Apply a thin layer of Gel Base Coat and cure it under a UV or LED lamp according to the recommended time.
  • Apply a thin layer of Gel Nail Polish color of your choice and cure it under the lamp.
  • Repeat the color application step for a more vibrant result (optional).
  • Finish with a thin layer of Gel Top Coat and cure it under the lamp.
  • Wipe nails with a lint-free wipe soaked in alcohol to remove the sticky residue.

3. What’s the Difference Between Gel Nail Polish and Regular Nail Polish?

Gel nail polish, like Cally Gel Nail Polish, requires curing under a UV or LED lamp for it to dry and harden. This process results in a longer-lasting and more chip-resistant finish compared to traditional nail polish, which air-dries and might require frequent touch-ups.

4. How Long Does Cally Gel Nail Polish Last? 

When applied correctly and with proper care, Cally Gel Nail Polish can last up to 3 weeks without chipping or fading. The longevity can vary based on your nail condition and daily activities.

5. How Do You Remove Gel Nail Polish? 

To remove Gel Nail Polish:

  • Gently file the top layer of the gel polish to break the seal.
  • Soak a cotton ball in acetone.
  • Place the cotton ball on your nail and wrap it with aluminum foil.
  • Let it sit for about 10-15 minutes.
  • Gently push off the softened gel polish with a cuticle stick. Avoid scraping too hard to prevent damaging your nails.

6. Is Cally Gel Vegan & Cruelty-Free? 

Yes, Cally Gel Nail Polish is formulated to be both vegan and cruelty-free. It is not tested on animals and does not contain animal-derived ingredients.

7. Does Cally Gel Polish Need a UV Light to Cure? 

Yes, Cally Gel Nail Polish requires either a UV or LED lamp to cure and harden. UV lamps generally take longer to cure the polish compared to LED lamps.

8. Does Cally Gel Polish Peel? 

When applied correctly and with proper preparation, Cally Gel Nail Polish should not peel. Proper nail prep, thin and even application, and correct curing times are essential to prevent peeling.
