BornPretty Store Polygel

12:27 PM

Hello friends! I recently got to try a new to me product. Poly extension gel! I do know that most of the time Polygel is used to extend the nails, used on tips or with forms etc. But I’ve tried it as overlay on my natural nails.

Shade 02

Shade 03

Shade 04

Since I’m a natural nail lover and decided to just try it as an overlay I was really pleased that it worked so wonderfully! I didn’t have any slip solution so I used what I had on hand and it worked. I applied a very small bead of product to my nail and used an isopropyl alcohol dampened gel brush to apply the Polygel. 
 I gently pressed the Polygel and used the brush to manipulate the polygel to the free edge and cuticle line. I cured them for 1 minute and that was it! The control of this product is amazing! I tried the shade 03, this line comes in 10 different shades. 
 These are labeled as a soak off product but I didn’t have the extra time to test that. I had tried these over a peel off base coat. From my limited knowledge on polygel, I’ve never seen one being soaked off only filed off so I will be giving these another test to see if they truly soak off.
