Gels


Gels come in many variations from low viscosity for base gels and top gels to high viscosity to sculpt long artificial
nails.
There can be many differences between uv and led gels but the big difference is in the photoinitiator. Lechat SA
offers professional gel lines in uv curing, led curing as well as the advantage of certain gels in both.

Hard Gel versus Soft Gel

Hard Gel

• can be removed only by filing
• can be used for longer nail enhancement
• lasts longer without chipping
• can be used for sculpting elaborate nail art
• applies in thin layers or one thick building layer
• takes longer to cure

Soft Gel

• more flexible
• removable by soaking
• applies in multiple layers
• can cure faster in led light

Base Gels

These gels are developed to put a base between the natural nail and the artificial nail to promote adhesion and to
smooth the nail plate.

Builder / Sculpting gels

Builder gels offer simple to subtle sculpting capabilities. These self-levelling gels are easy to apply and can be
used by technicians of all levels. The more viscose gel can create long, strong nails for more advanced
technicians.

snow white and in different viscosities.

Cover Gels

The cover gel were designed to create the perfect natural looking nails with gel. All cover colours closely match

How to Care for Nail Brushes

Don’t underestimate the power of nail brushes. They might sometimes be considered an afterthought, but these tools play a big role in a nail tech’s job. Whether you’re applying acrylics, hard gel, or nail art, you need to know the appropriate brushes to use and how to care for them correctly.

Preparing your brushes:

When nail art brushes are manufactured, the bristles are dipped in starch to bring them to a point before packaging. To prepare a new brush for use, remove the brush from the container and remove the plastic covering that’s placed over the hair to protect it in shipment (don’t ever try to insert the bristle end back into the plastic covering; it will not fit correctly and you’ll ruin the bristles). Place the head of the brush between your fingers and break the starch loose from the hair and the brush head out by gently rolling it between your fingers. Pour a small amount of Dare Liquid monomer or 90 percent alcohol into a glass dappen dish, and place the brush into the liquid, allowing the hair to absorb as much as possible. Wipe the head of the brush on a clean, lint-free towel, and repeat several times to remove all of the starch. Finally, wipe the bristles down on the towel in a circular motion, rotating clockwise to bring the brush back to a fine point. Do this for each one of the brushes. Your brushes are now seasoned properly and ready to use.

TIP: Avoid skin contact with the bristles whenever possible. Oils from the body can deteriorate the bristles over time.

Cleaning and storing your brushes

The most important thing you can do for your brushes is to keep them clean and remove any remaining product. If product is not removed the bristles will begin to flair, rendering the brush virtually useless. Clean your brushes with monomer, brush cleanser, or gel-cleanser after each use, then store them flat, covered, and away from direct sunlight and UV light so any gel on the bristles will not harden. Be sure also to keep your brushes stored away from dust and other contaminants. Try storing them on a table towel in a closed drawer.

Replacing your brushes

When do you need to replace a brush? When you start noticing the bristles beginning to flair out, then it’s time to invest in a new brush. Stray hairs leave grooves in the acrylic when you are sculpting, and you will have to do more filing to remove them. You’ll want to replace brushes when they start getting too soft or flexible. Times vary according to quality and usage, but brushes will usually last between six months and a year.

TIP: To ready your brushes for travel, you can top coat the bristles with regular clear polish and allow them to harden again. This will keep the bristles in place. When you are ready to use the brushes, dip the bristles first in acetone, then alcohol, and wipe a few times on your table towel.
