Mastering the Art of Applying LA-BEK’s Semi-Cured Gel Nails: A Step-by-Step Guide

Embarking on your journey to flawless nails with LA-BEK’s Semi-Cured Gel Nails? Here are some expert tips to ensure a seamless application process and stunning results every time:

Handle with Care

Always store your semi-cured gel nails in the provided black sleeve to protect them from light exposure, which can affect their adhesive properties.

Prep Like a Pro

After cleaning your nails with the included alcohol swab, ensure they are completely dry before application to maximise adhesion.

Caring for Cuticles

Take the time to trim any unruly cuticles or gently push them back to create a clean canvas for your semi-cured gel nails. Remember, well-groomed cuticles contribute to a polished finish.

Size Matters

When selecting a nail strip, opt for a size slightly smaller than your nail bed. You can gently stretch the strip to fit perfectly, ensuring a snug and natural-looking application.

Seal the Deal

Once the nail strip is in place, press down firmly on the edges to ensure a secure seal. This step is crucial for preventing lifting and ensuring long-lasting wear. Don’t forget to seal each nail before proceeding to the curing process.

Take it One Step at a Time

If you’re new to applying semi-cured gel nails, consider tackling one hand at a time. This allows you to focus on precision and ensures a thorough curing process. Alternatively, you can apply 2-3 nails at a time before curing.

Harness the Power of Visual Aids

Need some extra guidance? Check out our instructional video, which demonstrates various application techniques tailored to different nail types and lengths. Whether you prefer a short and chic look or long and glamorous nails, we’ve got you covered.

File with Finesse

When it comes to shaping your nails, opt for a gentle downward motion in one direction to avoid damaging the nail strip. This technique ensures a smooth and even finish without compromising the integrity of the gel.

Patience is Key

After curing your nails under the UV lamp, resist the temptation to get your hands wet for 2-3 hours. This allows the adhesive to fully set and ensures optimal results for days to come.

Embrace the Beauty

Finally, take a moment to admire your handiwork and revel in the beauty of your freshly manicured nails. Whether you’ve opted for a classic French tip or a bold pop of color, your LA-BEK semi-cured gel nails are sure to turn heads and boost your confidence.


With these expert tips and tricks, you’ll be well on your way to mastering the art of applying LA-BEK’s Semi-Cured Gel Nails like a seasoned pro. Enjoy the process, and most importantly, enjoy your stunning new nails!
