OPI GelColor Application
For proper application, users should apply the OPI GelColor base coat to the nails and then cure the base coat under an LED light. The curing should take approximately 30 seconds. The color layer goes on top of the cured base coat and should cure for 30 seconds under the LED light. Finally, users must apply the GelColor top coat and once again cure the nails under the LED light for 30 seconds. During application, users should apply both the base coat and top coat to the free edge of the nail in order to seal the manicure.
OPI GelColor Removal
Removal of OPI GelColor is more time consuming than standard polish because the color is sealed so securely to the nail. To remove GelColor at home, users may soak a cotton ball in acetone and then apply it to the surface of the nail. Wrapping a piece of aluminum foil around the cotton ball holds it in place for the required time. After approximately 10 minutes, users can check and see if the polish has soaked off sufficiently. If not, it may be necessary to leave the acetone on the nail surface for a few more minutes, checking the progress periodically. Take your orange wood stick and gently scrape off any leftover gel polish
