What is nail lacquer? Nail lacquer is another word for nail polish. It can be applied to your fingernails or your toenails to seamlessly match your dip powder manicure - that is why we call them Revel Mates! There are many pros to using lacquer: it's easy to apply, it does not require a UV light, and it's easy to remove so you can change your color as many times as you desire.
How to apply nail lacquer:
Step 1: As always, you're going to want to first prep your nails. Sanitize your hands and gently push back cuticles.
Step 2: Shape your nails to the desired shape with a 180 grit file.
Step 3: Using a lint free wipe, clean the nail with alcohol.
Step 4: Apply a thin layer of Revel Nail Lacquer Base Coat from cuticle to free edge.
Step 5: Allow Base Coat to fully dry.
Step 5: Using Revel Mates Nail Lacquer color of choice, apply a thin layer from cuticle to free edge. Be sure to cap the tips of the nail to ensure complete coverage.
Repeat step 5 again giving each layer time to dry in between. Each nail should have 2 layers of lacquer. (Pro Tip* – some colors may need a third layer to give a complete full coverage).
Step 6: Wait for your Revel Mates layers to fully dry.
Step 7: Apply a thin layer of Revel Nail Lacquer Top Coat from cuticle to free edge. Remember to cap the tips.
Step 8: Let dry.
Step 9: Apply Revel Nail Cuticle oil to the skin surrounding the nail to have a complete, nourished, and calcium enriched gel polish manicure!
When you want to remove the lacquer or change colors, simply apply some acetone with a cotton ball and gently remove the color.
