OPI Axxium Soak-off help!


I have an OPI axxium soak-off gel kit and a UV nail dryer. I have done this 3 times now and I have a problem.  I follow these steps:
-clean,buff and shape nail
-spray nas 99 and apply bond-aid
-apply clear gel base and cure for 1 minute
-apply color gel and cure for 2 minutes
-apply more color gel and cure for 2 minutes
-apply soak-off gel sealer, cure for 3 minutes
after the last step, the nail is still very sticky and when I rub a paper towel soaked with Nas 99, the gel polish comes off!  the nail is left dull and with most of the color removed.
What am I doing wrong?  Please help!

cure time

try curing for a longer time period. Was your UV nail drier brand new? Perhaps the UV lights aren't as strong anymore so you may need to replace them.
