T.A.P Hybrid Gel Basic Application Step-by-Step:
- Clean, trim and shape the natural nails. (Options: Add nail extension tips or use nail forms to build and to add extensions.)
- Push back cuticles using the T.A.P Stone Pusher to prep the cuticle area.
- Use a file, buffer or sanding band bit to remove all the natural shine to prep the entire nail surface.
- Brush away any dust or debris.
- Apply T.A.P Base Gel Primer + Bonder.
- Cure 30 Seconds/ LED Light or 1 Minute UV Light.
- Squeeze & Slice off the Hybrid Gel, with the metal end of the T.A.P brush, Apply gel(s) directly onto the nails.
- Use 70% Alcohol Solution with the T.A.P Hybrid Gels for a smooth application. This will also prevent the gel from sticking to the brush.
- “TAP" and smooth the Hybrid Gel using continuous pressure.
- Cure 60 Seconds/ LED Light or 2 Minute UV Light.
- Wipe off sticky inhibition layer with alcohol. (Optional: Apply T.A.P Top Gel to seal the inhibition layer. Cure 60 Seconds/ LED Light or 2 Minute UV Light.)
- Next shape the nails freely. Wipe and clean the surface when your finish. Hybrid Gel Nails application is now complete.
Option: Apply additional gel polish, nail art or embellishments. Recommended fill-in every 3-4 weeks.
To remove: Soak off with Acetone, wait until the gels are softened, and then file off using a med-coarse nail file or a med-coarse drill bit.
