Can you make a matte gel polish shine with regular nail polish? This question has been on my mind lately since I purchased my daughter a gorgeous metallic black nail polish in Emerald Flash. She absolutely loves it! However, since I have never used regular nail polish before, and I’m not really “nail polish” type of girl, I was a little apprehensive about the product.
Can you make a matte gel polish shine with regular nail polish? When I tried to answer this question, I found myself scratching my head.
Basically, what you want to do when you make a matte, silver-toned gel polish shine with regular nail polish is to use regular nail polish, just like you were polishing your nails with regular nail polish, only you’re using it on the shine and underneath the color.
You need to be very careful when you do this, because if you don’t, some of the shine will come off. So, make sure that your regular nail polish is silver-toned (it should be) and that it’s very clear.
The only other way to make a matte gel polish shine with regular nail polish is to use a base coat, followed by a top coat. First, take your matte white gel polish and apply it on your nails in thick layers, making sure that the first coat is opaque.
After the first coat, put some regular nail polish on the bottom layer, and then top it off with a coat of darker, white (or another color).
Follow this up with another layer of regular nail polish, and you’ll have a gel polish that will shine! Just make sure to allow the darker one to dry completely before putting on top of the lighter shade.
How Do I Make My Matte Polish Shine?
How do I make my matte polish shiny? If you are like most women who just plain cannot seem to get that shine to your nails, then you may be tempted to grab some of those “silly” polishes or glosses at the store.
However, those types of products are designed for regular nail polish, not gloss or matte polish. If you are looking for something that will make your matte and stylish nails look spectacular, then you need to find a product that is specially formulated for use on your type of polish.
As with regular nail polish, matte and gel polish have two primary ingredients – a substance known as an acid and a base or clear plastic resin.
Using the wrong type of product on these types of polishes can permanently damage or even discolor them. If you want your nails to sparkle with natural, sparkly shine, you need to find a polishing agent that was designed for use on your matte rather than on your regular polished nails.
Using the wrong type of nail polish can also make it difficult to remove when you want to. Regular nail polish removers often do not work well on gel polish.
This is because the acid in regular nail polish can eat away at the clear resin. Gel polish is more resistant to abrasion than regular nail polish, but it can still be removed if you want to achieve a matte or glittery finish.
How Do I Make My Gel Polish Shine?
How do I make my gel polish shiny? The best answer to that question is to buy a product that contains UV light. Products that contain uv rays are able to reactivate the dead cells on the surface of the nail.
This is the same thing that you would do with regular nail polish. When you use a product that has UV rays, it makes the gel look great and stay that way.
How do I make my gel polish shiny? It’s very easy if you just use a regular base coat. Every time you cut or trim your nails you should apply a regular base coat.
This will help keep your nails looking great and it will hide any damage that you might have already done. Using a regular base coat also helps make gel based nail polishes durable.
How do I make my gel polish last longer? If you want your manicure to look great for up to three weeks, you need to take extra good care of your nails.
Always make sure that you cut off all of the dead skin and cuticles near the tip of each nail. You also need to make sure that you trim your cuticles as short as possible.
Do You Put a Top Coat on Matte Nail Polish?
Some people think that putting a top coat on matte nail polish is a good way to keep it from streaking or wearing away quickly. The problem with this idea is that often times the gel polish or regular nail polish doesn’t even have a strong enough coating on it to make a difference.
So basically you are just wasting your time by trying to make nail polish shine. There are several other ways that you can make gel polish shine so that you don’t waste both your time and your money.
One of the simplest things you can do to make nail polish stay longer is to make sure that you clean and condition your nails often. This will help keep the polish from coming off as easily as regular polish. Another simple thing that you can do to keep gel polish from streaking or breaking is to use an over-the-counter polish remover that is designed to be gentle on the skin.
Be careful when choosing a product to make nail polish last as long as possible, because some types of polish removers can actually cause damage to the skin and cause nail polish to break off more easily.
In addition to keeping your nails clean, you also need to make sure that you keep your hands clean. Regular nail polish contains a type of preservative known as nitrocellulose, which can make your nails prone to breakage if you frequently use regular nail polish and then touch your fingers to apply the gel polish.
In order to prevent your nails from breaking down due to frequent touching of your hands, you can cover your nails with clear nail polish and then let them dry for a few minutes before you use your hands.
It’s also a good idea to remove any traces of nail polish that you might have used, so that the gel polish stays on longer and better.
How Do You Remove Matte Nail Polish?
If you own multiple nail polish bottles, it can be frustrating to try and remove your matte polish. The problem is that different manufacturers use different methods for removing the thick and shiny finish. I found that some brands of nail polish remover are better than others at dissolving the nail polish.
However, I didn’t want to spend too much money on special nail polish removers, so I tried to find a solution that would make nail polish shine like regular polish.
It was embarrassing to go to the salon and ask my stylist if they had a product specifically designed to remove matte nail polish. They didn’t, so I ended up buying a bottle of polish remover from the drug store.
The bottle worked well but left a residue on my nails for days afterwards. I also found that many nail polish removers contain harsh chemicals that make your nails look terrible and in many cases they are actually harmful to your health. It was also really hard to get the bottle off my nails because the residue made them feel slippery and gross.
Eventually, I found a solution on how do you remove matte nail polish. Instead of buying an expensive nail polish remover, I bought a product from a company called Mederma. They make a polish and nail conditioner that is meant to help make regular nail polish shinier and cleaner.
When I used the Mederma polish on my nails, I noticed that the shiny appearance of my nails went away, they also felt softer to touch.
Why Are My Gel Nails Not Shiny?
It is very common for people to ask themselves “Why are my gel nails not as shiny as they used to be?” When you have gel nail polish on your finger tips and wear regular nail polish, you cannot see the difference between the two.
The reason why regular nail polish does not look as shiny as it did when you applied it is because regular nail polish was not applied with the extra shine formula that gel nail polish provides.
It is very important that you apply a high shine product to your finger tips after you apply regular nail polish so that your gel nails will stay looking as bright as they did the first day that you started to grow out your nails.
The extra shine provided by gel nail polish helps make your nails appear to be shinier than they would be if you did not use the extra shine formula.
If you grow out your nails and then wash them down with regular nail polish, they will not have the extra glitter to them because regular nail polish will cover up the appearance of your nails.
Gel nail polish allows you to have the natural glitter in your nails without having to worry about people not noticing the extra glitter in your nails. This helps keep your nails looking their best.
If you had to get rid of the extra glitter on your nails, you would not be able to have the same level of shine to your nails that you currently have and this can be embarrassing.
You can also try giving your gel nail kits a try. Many people have claimed that these kits are great at making their gel nails look as nice as they did when they were just teenagers.
These kits have been designed to make sure that you get the maximum amount of coverage possible for your gel nail art. You will be amazed at how much more noticeable your gel nails will be once you are using these kits regularly.
