To answer the question, “Can you put regular nail polish on polygonal cuticles,” the key is to understand the cuticle of the polygons. A regular nail polish or gel manicure will not cut straight across the top surface of the nail, but will typically work if you are trying to create a “star nail.”
In other words, you are trying to get the maximum amount of shine and glitter on your nail. The key to getting the star effect is to have a little bit of overlapping along the length of the nail.
If you are having difficulty getting the overlapping for your acrylic nails, try applying a little bit of clear nail polish to help you achieve the look. Be careful that you do not have too much gel applied to your acrylic nails as this could cause smudges.
The clear nail polish you use will also help prevent the acrylic nails from coming off if you were to try scrubbing them too hard. If you are having trouble keeping the acrylics from coming off, you may want to try using an alpha-nail remover.
Why Put Regular Nail Polish Over Polyurethane?
In the previous installment of this article, we looked at why you should not put regular nail polish over polyurethane (PA) nails. This time, we will look at why you should not use a regular nail polish remover to clean your polyurethane.
Most regular nail polish removers contain acetone, which reacts with the oil in your nail to form an oily film on your nails. The oil in your nail clogs up the air holes in the polymer, and this causes your nails to crack and break.
Although cracking and breaking can be unsightly, it is not structurally important, so you can safely clean your acrylics with regular nail polish remover.
Some people worry that cleaning polyurethane with regular nail polish will cause the polyurethane to break down prematurely. This is actually one of the reasons that they are able to use regular nail polish remover.
The reason is because regular nail polish removers will not be able to effectively remove all of the oil from your acrylics. As the oil build-up clogs the air holes in the polymer, the process of drying will become more complicated.
When this happens, the polymer will start to dry faster than it normally would, and this will cause it to crack and crumble. Although the oil in your nail will still be there when your acrylics are completely dry, it will be much less apparent.
How to Put Regular Nail Polish Over Polygonal or Lined Nails in Polygons
So you want to know how to put regular nail polish over polygonal (or layered) nails. Polygonal (or layered) nails have a row of undulating ridges running from the base of the nail up to the tip.
The ridges are often called “strips” because it looks more like strips when viewed from the eye. It is usually easiest to put regular nail polish over these nails because the ridges are already very obvious.
Most acrylic gels used for cutting and shaping are not recommended for use on polygel nails as they may scratch the surface. Most gel nail tips can’t be applied to polygonal nails.
These gels use liquid carbon-based gels that are thinner than most gels but are still thick enough that they cannot be applied to the ridges without some difficulty.
A common alternative to gel nails are liquid urethane coating gels. These are slightly thicker than the gel gels but thin enough that the tip of the nail does not scrape through the coating.
Whether you choose acrylic, urethane or traditional nail polish, make sure that it is oil-free and water-based. You should also use a UV light to help make sure that the color gets into the nail bed and also make sure that the product stays in place.
Applying your UV light once a week should be sufficient and you will achieve the look you want. If you do not use a UV light and your gel ends up clashing with your natural nails, then make sure that you remove the gel and reapply your UV light every two weeks.

Many people wonder about whether regular nail polish will ruin their polygonal nails. It is a good question, one that doctors have sought to answer for many years.
The problem with polygonal nails, or any type of odd shaped nails, is that they tend to have a more pronounced nail bed which can be thick and tough. This makes regular nail polish application problematic.
