1. Start with a Clean Slate

A long-lasting manicure begins with thorough preparation. Ensure the nail bed is clean, dry, and free of oils before application. 

2. Use High-Quality Base Coats

The base coat acts as a foundation, ensuring the gel polish adheres properly and lasts longer. The Miss Dolla Gel Base Coat not only enhances adhesion but also protects the natural nail from staining, promoting a healthier nail bed beneath the stunning color.

3. Apply Thin Layers

Thick layers of gel polish can lead to premature chipping and peeling. Apply thin, even layers, curing each layer under an LED lamp before applying the next. Our range of Miss Dolla Gel Polishes is formulated to provide exceptional coverage and color with minimal layers, ensuring a sleek, durable finish.

4. Cap the Free Edge

One of the most crucial yet overlooked steps in gel manicure application is capping the free edge of the nail. This technique involves lightly brushing the tip of the nail with polish and base coat, sealing the edge and significantly reducing the chances of chipping.

5. Opt for Quality Top Coats

A high-quality top coat is the key to a long-lasting, glossy finish. The Miss Dolla Diamond Top Coat not only seals in colour but also provides an unbeatable shine that resists scratches and wear, keeping manicures looking salon-fresh for weeks.

6. Educate Your Clients on Aftercare

Lasting beauty is a team effort. Advise your clients on proper aftercare, such as wearing gloves while cleaning and applying cuticle oil daily to maintain moisture. 

7. Retail Aftercare Products

Empower your clients to maintain their manicure’s longevity by offering aftercare products directly in your salon. 

At Miss Dolla, we understand the importance of every detail in the nail care process. By incorporating these expert tips and our specially formulated products into your services, you'll not only prolong the wear of gel manicures but also elevate your client's experience, ensuring they return time and time again for the quality and durability they can trust.
