A: The answer to this question is BOTH! You can apply our gel as thin or as thick as you’d like. It will add strength to any manicure.
Q: Do I have to use primer?
A: If you are doing a soak-off gel manicure we at least recommend you use our primer “Commit” to the tips and free edge of the nail. If you are using it for an “Enhancement” and would like to “fill” your clients then 1-2 coats of “Commit” before application of the gel. However, every single client is different, they may need a primer where others won't.
Q: Do I need a base coat?
A: Nope! All our coloured and clear Multi-Flex Gel can be applied straight onto the nails after prep and prime.
Q: Can I apply gel colour on top?
A: Absolutely! Most brands of gel colour will work with our system. After curing our Multi-Flex gel do NOT wipe the sticky layer just apply gel colour and cure. If the brand you're using is having issues on top of Luminary, please cleanse and buff the surface. If you would like to finish file your nails or have buffed the nails, make sure to add a layer of “Commit” over the filed dry nail before applying colour.
Q: How do I deal with the “Heat Spike”?
A: As with most gel systems your client may experience a bit of a heat spike depending on how thick you layer your gel. Try using an LED light with a dimming feature (1/2 power). That will help tremendously or if you don’t have one, try having your client go in and pull out of the light after 5-10 seconds. Once should be enough but depending on your client's sensitivity level, you may want to repeat the process.
