Quick, Long-Lasting Gel Manicures with the New Geláze 2 in 1 Gel Polish System from China Glaze!

I have always loved all of the China Glaze colors and collections, but I am addicted to gel polish manicures! So, I was super excited to see that China Glaze has come out with a 2 in 1 Gel Polish System! The great thing about this system is that the base coat is built right into the color, which saves a lot of time when performing the service for your clients. All you need is the Geláze Top Coat and an LED or UV Lamp. China Glaze Geláze Gel-n-Base in One comes in 49 shades of color-matched gel perfection to complement China Glaze's top 49 selling lacquers. Geláze delivers chip-free nails and spectacular shine and your client will love how quickly you can give them their desired long-lasting manicure!

Application
  • Prep: Perform a dry manicure. Then remove shine from the natural nail with a buffer.
  • Gel-n-Base in One: Apply a thin coat of Gel-n-Base in One gel polish and cure 30 seconds under LED lamp or 2 minutes under UV lamp. Repeat the process for a second coat.
  • Gelaze Gel Top Coat: Apply a thin coat of Gelaze Gel Top Coat and cure 30 seconds under LED lamp or 2 minutes under UV lamp.
  • Cleanse: After Top Coat application, wipe cured nails Gelaze Pre-Soaked Gel Cleanser Pad to remove sticky gel residue.



Removal
  • Prep: With a nail file, break the seal of the gel nail.
  • Saturate: Saturate Gelaze Professional Gel and Nail Polish Remover Wrap with Gelaze Gel Remover.
  • Wrap: Wrap securely around nail. Allow to penetrate for 10 minutes.
  • Remover: Use an orangewood stick or a cuticle pusher to gently loosen and remove gel.


The process is simple and just like a regular gel polish manicure, however your cutting out one step (applying and curing the base coat), which gives you more time for more client appointments!

Cool New Nail Trend: Rainbow Feather Nails

While nail art is still a huge trend right now, I recently came across a really cool design that your clients will love! This design will have your clients remembering the black art scratch paper from back when they were younger. The end result is the same idea..Bright rainbow colors jumping off a black canvas. All you'll need is black and and array of rainbow color nail polishes, a thin nail art brush, and your creative talent! You can check out the article on Nail It Magazine!


Steps to create the Rainbow Feather Nail Design
  • Step 1: Paint the nails black
  • Step 2: First draw the shaft of the feather as a thin, fine line that curves across the nails.
  • Step 3: Dip your brush into the blue acrylic paint, but only use the tiniest amount possible to get the precise and clean feather look. Add short strokes to both sides of the center line. This part can get tricky but you'll get a hang of it after a few tries
  • Step 4: Continue to add short strokes to the center line; this time with green acrylic paint
  • Step 5: Add yellow strokes.
  • Step 6: Add orange strokes.
  • Step 7: Add pink strokes.
  • Step 8: Add purple strokes.
  • Step 9: Now go back to the blue and continue to add short strokes to the line. Start tapering the feather from this point on by making strokes a little shorter than the ones before.
  • Step 10: Add more green strokes. We're almost done with the feather at this point.
  • Step 11: Add more yellow strokes. Further taper the feather.
  • Step 12: Add orange strokes to the very top of the feather. Remember to taper the end of the feather so it looks realistic!
  • Step 13: And that's it!  Now add topcoat to the nails and clean up the mess around the cuticles and you're done!

Check out the colors below that would work perfectly for this design!
CND VINYLUX Black Pool / 0.5 oz. - 7 Day Air Dry Nail Polish
China Glaze Electropop Collection - Gothic Lolita / 0.5 oz.
China Glaze Electropop Collection - Dance Baby / 0.5 oz.
China Glaze Electropop Collection - Sunshine Pop / 0.5 oz.
China Glaze Electropop Collection - Gaga for Green / 0.5 oz.

Nail Trends: The New Galaxy Nails? - Lightning Nails!

Recently, we were all so fascinated with the Galaxy Nails trend, and then I came across another similar trend that was so cool! They are Lightning Nails. The idea is to portray the image of bolts of lightning on a stormy night right onto your nails.



The process seems fairly simple. You start off with a dark or black polish, then sponge on accent colors like purple, blue, and white. To paint on the bolts, you'll want to use a very thin nail design brush or dotting tool.

The finished look definitely looks very interesting and fun!

Here are some useful products for Lightning Nails:
Nail Art Striper Brush (566)
China Glaze Nail Polish - Stella / 0.5 oz. by China Glaze
China Glaze Nail Lacquer 0.5 oz. Tantalize Me #70624 - Shimmer
China Glaze - Grade Pop / 0.5 oz. by China Glaze (240930)
