|UV and LED Gel Polishes on May 21, 2015 @ 11:58 pm|
I use a Red Carept Manicure LED System. If the polish is UV or LED - you will need to use one of those lamps for curing. I have found both light sources (LED and UV) work equally well. Taking it off can be a challenge though. I rough up the Nail Polish on each nail with a coarse file, then soak a cotton pad in Erase ( It's a Red Carpet Gel Nail Polish Remover) and then wrap each nail in tinfoil and let sit for about 10-15 minutes. Remove the tinfoil and the cotton pad and you should be able to scrape off the remaining polish fairly easily. Buff off any remaining residue and you're good for another mani! I love Gel Mani's because I generally get about 3 weeks out of each one - so I don't mind spending the extra time on removal - as I find the strength and staying power makes it worth the extra time. Good Luck!

If you're having trouble with learning how to use gel, you should stick to the easy nail polishes that look and feel like gel such as the "Revlon Gel Envy" or the "sally hansen miracle gel" they are amazing and look just like gel, easy to remove just by using your normal nail polish remover, no LED/UV system or anything. give it a try :)
