Love. Love. Love.
The Sephora by OPI gelshine kit includes a really great guide book that includes tips and instructions.
I read and followed that and voila! Perfect gel nails.
Once you follow all of the steps for prepping you're ready to go!
Base coat on 4 nails, then cure.
Base coat on thumb, then cure.
Gel polish on 4 nails (same hand), then cure.
Gel polish on thumb (same hand), then cure.
Repeat the last steps with a second coat of gel polish.
Repeat on your other hand and there you have it!
Make to sure to complete all of step 4 in the guide book.
"Thoroughly saturate Nail Pad with Nail Cleanser and wipe over and under nail edge."
The Nail Pad and Nail Cleanser and included with the kit.
I didn't read that part before I started on my second hand. My first hand was still tacky before I rubbed the Nail Cleanser over my nail. It shined my nails and gave them a glossy finish.
I screwed it up and my nails still turned out great!
It's been a week since then and no chipping or dulling.
I think I will def be buying more gel colors in the near future.
Pretty obsessed with these results.
