Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is Gelish Vegan?

  • There is no globally accepted definition for vegan but we define vegan to mean no animal derived ingredients or animal by-products.
    Taking the above definition into consideration, there are two products that are not vegan:
    · The Gelish Nourish Cuticle Oil contains an animal derived ingredient. The formulation contains soluble collagen which is derived from fish scales.
    · The Gelish Vitalixir is a keratin nail treatment that contains hydrolyzed keratin which is derived from wool

  • Is Gelish used with a Base Coat?

  • GELISH FOUNDATION GEL is new technology for gel adhesion. It is designed to create the bond between the Structure Gel or the GELISH COLORS to the natural nail plate. There is no primer necessary in this system.

  • Do you use a Top Coat with Gelish?

  • GELISH TOP IT OFF, is a soak off gel top coat that seals the GELISH Gel Polish. TOP IT OFF cures under UV or LED Lights and has a long lasting high shine.

  • Do we need to cleanse the Gelish Top It Off?

  • YES, this product does require cleansing after curing.

  • How long does Gelish last?

  • GELISH will last until you soak it off. GELISH does not peel, chip or fade, it performs like a GEL

  • How do you remove Gelish?

  • This product will soak off in 10 – 15 minutes. Lightly file over the top of the surface with a 180 grit file, apply GELISH SOAK OFF GEL REMOVER to a cotton ball and place on the nail. Wrap the nail with foil and allow the nail to soak for 10 – 15 minutes. Then rub off the nail. If you have used the structure gel to build the nail, this might take additional time.

  • Does Gelish cause any chemical damage to the natural nail?

  • This system uses only a pH balancing agent to stabilize the moisture level of the nail. Then the FOUNDATION Gel has adhesive properties that attract to the keratin in the natural nail, not causing any depletion, only acting as a 2 sided tape to adhere the STRUCTURE or the GELISH Gel Polish to the nail itself.

  • Can Gelish Gel Polish be used over traditional gel or acrylic?

  • Yes, it can be put over traditional gel or acrylic as long as it is being applied to a rough surface filed with a 100 grit Harmony buffer or a 180 grit file. REMEMBER, you cannot soak this off acrylic without removing the nail itself.

  • How many applications per Gelish bottle?

  • Most Gel Polish applications include a 2 coat application. The 15ml bottles will do approximately 50 – 60 full sets.
