What, why and how? Those are the questions we still get until now about soak off gel nail polish application and removal.

Our fellow blogger, Andrea from Chickettes.com has written a post titled “SOG Gel Polish FAQ’s“. It explains some common questions with helpful information, such as how to prevent shrinkage, wrinkle problem, to nail care. She is an avid user of gel nail polish and frequently uses Gelish and Ink gel polish.

Gel Nail Polish Thinner

It’s not uncommon that any gel polish will get thicker over time.  Doing the steps in this article “How To Care For Your Gel Nail Polish ” will help to lengthen the age of your gel polish.

However, if you still notice that your gel polish is too thick to apply smoothly, we recommend to use a gel polish thinner, such as Gelish Thinner by LaRosa Cosmetics or Gelos Gel Thinner by LeChat. It’s a must product for a DIYer Gel Polish users.

Gel Polish Thinner

The Gelish Thinner can be used for any gel polish. Its size is 30ml (1 oz). And it comes with a glass dropper.

How To

Use the thinner with the dropper.

  • Shake your polish.
  • Drop a little thinner into the bottle.
  • Shake again.
  • Repeat if necessary (if you feel the polish is still too thick). You can compare its thickness with a newer polish, to know if you should more or not.

We’ve used it for a while and from our experience the thinner works better if the gel polish has started to get thick but not in a hard solid state.

Gelos Gel Thinner is available at EsthersNC.com your online source for Gelish, Daisy and CND Shellac gel polish. It’s on sale now for $9.99

How To Care For Your Gel Nail Polish Before It’s Too Late

Daisy Gel Sachet Pink #1136

It is not uncommon that gel polish may get thicker after a while. Here are a few suggestion on how to take care your gel nail polish. These suggestion are from CND website for caring Shellac but I think it works for all gel nail polish.

  • Shake the bottle thoroughly before each use to disperse the solvents which helps prevent evaporation and thickening
  • Close the cap firmly when not in use. This will prevent solvent from evaporating in between services. It may be necessary to clean the neck of the bottle after use to ensure a tight closure.
  • Do not expose the bottle to light without the cap firmly in place. Exposure to light can begin the curing process, this includes sunlight and table lamps.
  • Replace the cap any time you are not actually applying the product. This limits evaporation as well as exposure to light.
  • Use Shellac when the bottle is at room temperature. This will insure good consistency for application and eliminate fast evaporation of the solvents.

When in cold temperature, gel polish tends to be thicker than usual. Therefore, before application, let it stand in a normal temperature for a while.  Also another suggestion is to wrap it in a warm damp towel. Warm the towel first in microwave. Or you can also soak the polish in a warm water in bowl and wait for about 15 minutes.

So do you have any experience with thick gel polish or know the solution to it? Please share with us by leaving your comment below.

Daisy Gel Polish Blog Review

Recently Daisy gel nail polish got reviewed by Melissa, a blogger from Pink Pistachio, one of my  favorite blog. She chose Daisy Punk Rock, a deep dark red color.  I am happy to hear that Daisy lasts as long as Gelish does. This is an answer to those who question the durability of our newest line of nail polish, Daisy Gel.

Here’s what she said:

“I’ve always used Gelish products but was recently introduced to Daisy Gel courtesy of Esther’s Nail Center. Daisy Gel can be used with Gelish base & top coats and it’s more affordable. After trying it, I have to admit it works exactly the same as Gelish colors and stays on just as long.”
