DIY Gel Manicure with Depend GelLack

Well hello Gorgeous! Let me just start off by saying I am absolutely not a professional when it comes to paint nails. I am probably the laziest beauty blogger in the universe. Honestly, I hate doing my own nails because it will take me forever to get everything done. With Depend Gellack Obligatory Start Kit, I can stop making excuses and being lazy! I can have beautiful and perfect nails in a jiffy.

So yeah, here is the easy gel manicure tutorial to do your beautiful and perfect nails!
Let's Rock N Roll!


Things You Need:-
  • Manicure bowl
  • Nail File
  • Orange Stick
  • Lint free wipe
  • Hand towel
  • Depend Gellack Obligatory Start Kit (Will tell you more about this kit at the end of this tutorial)


For nails care during nail prep, you need :

  • Top Coat - Depend Gellack Step 4

For nails color, you need :
  • Depend Gellack - Romantic Pink G320
  • Depend Gellack - Scarlet G316

Nice and perfect manicure begin with proper preparation. It's actually very simple and everyone can do it! Alrighty, let me show you step by step how to do it . If I can do it so can you! 

Step 1
  • Rub nails with nail polish remover.
  • Soak fingers in the manicure bowl of warm water for 5 - 10 mins. This helps to soften the nails and easier to file without breaking the nails.
  • After that, pat hands and nails dry with hand towel.

Step 2
  • Cut nails to desired length
  • File nail in 1 direction

Step 3
  • Push the cuticle back 

Step 4
  • Apply lotion on hands and nails.


Now, let's move onto the Gel Manicure tutorial.

Step 1
  • Rub nails with Depend Gellack - Before/After Cleanser. This helps to clean the sticky surface or residue. (Allow your nails to dry completely approximately 30 seconds. Be sure don't touch the nails after they have been cleaned).

Step 2
  • Apply a thin layer of Depend Gellack Base and bake for 30 seconds under LED-lamp.
  • Then apply Before/After Cleanser to remove sticky surface. (Please note do not rub)
  • Wait for 20 seconds before the next step.

Step 3
  • Take any Depend Gellack color, stir with brush for about 20 times before applying.
  • Apply a thin layer of Depend Gellack color. Mine here is in Romantic Pink G320.
  • Bake for 30 seconds under LED-lamp.
  • Then wipe with Before/After cleanser and wait for 20 seconds.

Step 4
  • Apply another thin layer of same color on all nails except ring fingers.
  • Apply ring fingers with any Depend Gellack color, mine here is in Scarlet G316.
  • Bake for 30 seconds under LED-lamp.
  • Then wipe with Before/After cleanser and wait for 20 seconds.

Step 5
  • Apply a little bit of any Depend Gellack glitter you desire.
  • Bake for 30 seconds under LED-lamp.
  • Then wipe with Before/After cleanser and wait for 20 seconds.

Step 5
  • Apply a thin layer of Depend Gellack Top Coat.
  • Bake for 30 seconds under LED-lamp.
  • Then wipe with Before/After cleanser and wait for 20 seconds.

Final Step
  • Massage Depend Myrrh Oil onto each nail for a few minutes
  • After that, massage Depend Cuticle Cream onto cuticles for a few minutes

Voila! Beautiful Nails .. Woohoo!
