Can you use nail forms with UV gel?

Add gel. Paint the UV-gel with a brush on your nails and continue on the forms. There’s a grid to help you make your nails roughly the same length. Don’t worry if the gel doesn’t go on neatly, you’ll do more layers and file the nails to form later.

Does Polygel need UV light?

Polygel nails need to be cured, and this can be done using an LED light or a UV lamp. Depending on the brand of Polygel you use, the time it takes to cure will differ slightly, but it should be around 30 seconds under an LED and 2 minutes using a UV lamp. Polygel will not harden unless it is cured.

Can dual forms be used with builder gel?

Dip your brush into your pot of Builder Gel and apply to the dual form, spreading out the product to your desired length and shape. Apply more Builder Gel to create an apex; you’ll want to find the middle point of the nail and apply the Builder Gel thicker here (just like Gum Gel).

Are tips or forms better?

Once you’ve mastered nail forms, they are generally considered easier to apply than nail tips. Fewer steps also mean they are quicker to apply once you’ve got the hang of it. Sculpting with nail forms requires fewer products and kit. The finished look is generally thinner and more natural than using nail tips.

How long should PolyGel be under UV light?

two minutes
Unlike hard gel, PolyGel is not self-leveling, but stays where you place it; unlike acrylic, it doesn’t harden until it’s cured in an LED or UV lamp. Cure time is about 30 seconds in an LED lamp or two minutes in a UV lamp. PolyGel nails do not experience heat spikes during curing.

What’s the difference between hard gel and builder gel?

The main difference between hard gel and builder gel is that hard gel can not be soaked off using acetone. Hard gel has to be filed off because acetone can’t penetrate it. Builder gels are soft and can be removed by soaking.
