  1. Prepare Your Natural Nails:

    • If you have any polish or residue on your natural nails, remove it using nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol. Trim and shape your natural nails as needed.
  2. Prepare the Fake Nails:

    • Ensure the glue-on or press-on nails are clean and free from any residue. If necessary, use rubbing alcohol to cleanse the surface.
  3. Apply Gel Base Coat:

    • Apply a thin layer of gel base coat to each glue-on nail. Ensure you cover the entire surface, including the tips.
  4. Cure Under UV or LED Lamp:

    • Place the glue-on nails under a UV or LED nail lamp and cure the gel base coat according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  5. Apply Gel Polish:

  6. Repeat as Needed:

    • Apply additional layers of gel polish if desired, curing each layer under the lamp.
  7. Apply Gel Top Coat:

    • Once you're satisfied with the color, apply a thin layer of gel top coat to each nail. Cure under the UV or LED lamp.
