Once cured, Gelish polish becomes extremely durable and resistant to scratches, chipping or peeling. Their softer density and consistency allows it to withstand the wear and tear of life's daily exposures. Hand & Nail Harmony has 3 patents pending for their Gelish technology.

Curing times for Gelish depend on which curing lamp you decide to use. LED UV Lamps cure 10 times faster than traditional 36 Watt UV Lamps. They both emit Ultra Violet radiation that act as the curing agent for Gelish, but the radiation from LED lamps are much more intense and focused leading to drastically faster drying times.
If you use the Hand & Nail Harmony 9G LED Lamp or 6G LED Lamp, Gelish cures in just 20-30 seconds. A 36 Watt traditional UV lamp would cure Gelish in 2-3 minutes. If you use a lower Watt UV lamp, you can expect longer curing times. LED lamps are more expensive than traditional UV lamps, but last for 50,000 hours (that's about 5.5 years if left on continuously), whereas UV lamps requre frequent bulb replacements. Owning an LED lamp is ultimately the more economical and time saving choice if you love doing your own nails at home. Keep in mind, a Gelish manicure at a nail salon typically costs around $30-35.
Once only available for the professional market and still the top choice among nail technicians, Gelish is now available for the at-home self-manicurist. To get you started, we've compiled a section of Gelish kits suited to fit everyone from the home user to the salon owner.
Gelish is very easy to apply. We have put together a step-by-step application guide to help you with your first Gelish manicure.
Step 1. Prepare the nail by gently pushing back the cuticle using the flat end of an orange wood stick. Use the pointed end of the orangewood stick to perfect the cuticle.
Step 2. Shape the natural nail to your liking by using a wooden file or a soft file.
Step 3. Prepare the natural nail by gently removing the shine using a buffer.
Step 4. Place a small amount of Gelish Cleanse on a lint-free pad and wipe the nail to remove any excess dust or oil.
Step 5. Apply Gelish PH Bond from the cuticle to free edge. Gelish PH Bond evaporates very quickly leaving no residue. This is used to dehydrate and neutralize the nail plate to prepare it for the Foundation Gel.
Step 6. Apply a very thin layer of Gelish Foundation Gel to the nail from cuticle to free-edge. This acts as the bonding agent for your Gelish nail polish and is the essential ingredient for your Gelish manicure. The Foundation Gel will remain tacky even after it has been cured. This is to be expected so be careful not to touch it with your fingers.
Step 7. Place your hand in the LED Lamp and cure for 10 seconds or 1 minute in a 36 Watt UV Light.
Intermediate Step: Be sure to roll your Gelish Nail Polish bottle around in your hands to make sure it is mixed evenly. This is especially important for colors with glitter or any metallic additive.
Step 8. Apply a very thin coat of Gelish color to the nail and cover the natural nail plate completely from cuticle to free-edge. Be sure to remove any Gelish from the skin before curing. Cap the free-edge to seal. This will prevent any unnecessary chipping or peeling from any edge snags. Cure the Gelish polish.
Step 9. Place your hand in the LED Lamp and cure for 30 seconds or 3 minutes in a 36 Watt UV Light.
Step 10. Apply a second coat of Gelich color to the nail. This is especially important if you have a glittery or metallic color. These colors will require more coats to create a more solid appearance on your nail plate. Cure the Gelish polish again and after each coat until you've reached your desired appearance.
Step 11. Place your hand in the LED Lamp and cure for 30 seconds or 3 minutes in a 36 Watt UV Light.
Step 12. Apply Gelish Top it Off to the nail from cuticle to free-edge. Gelish Top it Off acts as a sealer and protective layer for your Gelish nail polish ensuring maximum shine and durability. Be sure to cap the free-edge to seal.
Step 13. Place your hand in the LED Lamp and cure for 20 seconds or 2 minutes in a 36 Watt UV Light.
Step 14. Place a small amount of Gelish Cleanse to a lint-free pad and wipe the surface of the nail to remove any excess sticky residue.
To Finish (Optional): Apply Gelish Nourish to revitalize and condition the surrounding skin. Massage the oil into the skin for maximum absorbtion.
72 Amazing Gelish Colors to Choose From
A great tip for making your Gelish manicure last longer is to employ a technique called "Capping the Edges." This just means that after each application of each product in the manicuring process, you should simply take your applicator brush and brush the edge of your nail so the solution essentially "wraps" around the edge of your nail. This will create a fully-covered seal and prevent any unnecessary chipping.
