How to Apply
Cleaning nail surface
Wash your hands before application, and remove all oil and moisture on every nail surface using a prep pad.
* Sweat, moisture, hand cream, oil on your nails may reduce adhesion of the semicured gel.
Choosing a strip size
Choose the semicured gel that best fits your nail size and remove the clear film.
If it's hard to find the strips that are your nail size, stretch them to fit your nail.
* Please refer to 'Tips by ohora Crew' at the bottom of the page for tips on creating new size.
Applying a semicured gel
Peel off semicured gel from the opposite side of the cuticle and apply it slightly apart from your cuticle line.
*Check the direction of the cuticle labed on the product before peeling off
Firmly pressing a semicured gel
Apply the pressure from the cuticle to the edge over the entire surface to prevent the hairs from getting caught in the space between the nail surface and the strip.
Trimming the excess (Filing)
Trim the excess using the rough side of the file.
Repeatedly curing until the gels get hard enough
Cure it 4 - 5 times with ohora UV lamp.
To ensure the strips enough hard, make sure to cure them repeatedly.
How to Store the Left Strips
Store the left items in the paper case to avoid any light exposure.
Please avoid any type of light exposure including direct sunlight. It may cause the strips getting hardened before use.
Store the strips at a room temperature (68°F to 86°F).
When the strips get hard, place the strips at a warm temperature to soften gels before application.
Tips for Gem Strips
Applying a protection strip
Apply the protection strip first before applying the gem strip.
* Protection strip doesn't have to perfectly fit your nail size.
Firmly pressing around the gem to its edge
Firmly press the strip around the gem to the edge to remove any remaining air bubbles and completely seal the strip.
Compressing with a wood stick before curing
Make sure to compress around the gem with a wood stick before curing. It will prevent the gems falling off.
Curing the gem from every different angle
Cure the semicured gel 4 - 5 times from all different angles.
