Soakable Gel Polish to ensure durability and prevent shrinkage of the color. Holding the brush horizontal to the nail continue to the center of the nail.

Step 4: BO. Soakable Gel Polish Color – Apply a second thin coat of polish using the same process. This coat provides full coverage. NOTE: if using a highly pigmented shade or a different lamp, it may be necessary to cure a second time to ensure that it is completely cured and that no color bleeds into your Top Gel application.
Step 5: BO. Soakable Top Gel – Wipe the brush off on the bottle neck to remove excess product. Cap the free edge of the nail to ensure durability and prevent shrinkage of the product. Holding the brush horizontal to the nail, apply a thin layer of BO. Soakable Top Gel to each nail surface of all four nails on one hand. Cure all four nails for 120 sec. UV / 30 sec. LED.

Step 6: If using BO. Soakable Top Gel or BO. Soakable Matte Top Gel it will be necessary to cleanse after curing. Saturate a gel sponge with BO. Gel Cleanser. With light pressure wipe away the top gel film, (this is the sticky inhibition layer). CAUTION: Do not re-wipe the nail with a used portion of the gel sponge, as it will redistribute the film causing dulling to the Top Gel. Use a clean saturated gel sponge for each finger. Tip: Wait with cleansing for about 1 minute after curing to let the nails “cool down” to get even more shine.
