Your Ignyte Representative can show you step by step how to apply our different nail enhancements. We also provide Instruction Cards in our kits and you can find our video tutorials on our YouTube page

 

My Gel Polish is chipping/lifting, what have I done wrong?

Correct nail preparation is essential to long lasting wearability. If you find that chipping or lifting is occurring then several things may have happened. Was the gel polish applied to heavily (thick)?. When applying gel polish less is more. It is easier to add another coat than to be left with a streaky finish. Also, if a layer of polish is to thick the Cure’it lamp may not penetrate all the way through the layers therefore not curing properly. Correct nail preparation is essential, we provide instruction cards and video tutorials on You tube to help you

 

How long will my Gel Polish Manicure last

If you follow the steps we have listed on the instruction card as well as our YouTube Tutorials regarding correct nail preparation then it can last 2-3 weeks.

My Gel polish has left a streaky finish

This usually occurs when you have applied to much polish on your nail. If you haven’t cured your nail then remove some of the excess Gel Polish using the brush.

If you have already cured the nail/s then you can remove the tacky layer using Cleanse’it and using the softer side of the File’ It File lightly file out the streaks, wipe with Cleanse’it again and then apply a coat of colour. Once again less is more, it is easier to add a layer of Gel Polish than to try removing a layer to get an even finish.

 

My Gel polish has wrinkled.

It’s important to fully cure each nail in between each application to ensure a smooth final finish, if wrinkling in the polish has occurred then you haven’t cured your polish long enough. We suggest to cure each layer for 45 seconds using our Cure’It Lamp and make sure your nails are inside the lamp properly.

 

I have SNS on my nail and want to start using your products, how do I remove it from my nail bed?

If SNS has been applied by a professional, it is recommended that it is removed by a ‘qualified’ professional.

 

My Gel polish is thicker than nail polish is it supposed to be like that?

Yes, our Gel Polish is a thicker viscosity. It’s self leveling properties make for a smooth finish. If the Gel Polish has been sitting for a while, give it a shake as pigment may have settled to the bottom.  When applying your polish please ensure your bottle/s is not near your Cure’It Lamp. The LED light will cause the gel cure. We also recommend storing your polish in a dark place as the UV in normal day light can thicken your polish.

I’m having trouble removing my gel polish

Using the course side of the File’it File, gently buff the surface to break the seal and remove all the surface shine this allows Soak’it to penetrate all the layers so it can be removed. Make sure your cotton ball is soaked in Soak’it.  Ensure the foil wrapped around the finger is air tight so Soak’it does not evaporate. After the 10-15 mins of soaking remove the foil from 1 finger only and then remove the gel polish. Removing all the foil from all fingers will cause the Soak’it solution to evaporate and you will have to soak again.

My natural nails are weak and break, what should I use?

Build it and our Overlay Powders, ask you Representative or contact us to find your local Representative for more information. Gel Polish can also be used over the above.

 

I used the “Build it” on my nail to strengthen it and it feels like it is still tacky after I cured it, what did I do wrong?

Nothing, this sticky layer also known as an inhibition layer is a layer of uncured gel, this must be removed. Using our wipes and Cleanse’It, wipe of the nail to remove this.

I used the Overlay Powder on my nails and the finish is uneven

Like all our products its important to use thin coats.  Thick application can lead to product on the skin/cuticles which can lead to lifting.  You can work on 1 finger at a time, ‘Snap curing’ for approx. 10 seconds in the Cure’It Lamp, this keeps it in place while you work on the other nails. After complete application of the Overlay powders make sure you use your file to even out any uneven surfaces.
