9. What is the No Wipe Top Coat?
Exactly what it says, it leaves no "tacky" layer. It is recommended to double the cure time for the No Wipe Top Coat. It has also been found that the No Wipe Top Coat is extremely sensitive to dust, especially airborn dust not visible to the eye. This can sometimes leave the finish with tiny pin head like spots or bubbles. The easiest ways to reduce this from happening is to wipe the final cured colour coat with Cleanser Plus prior to applying the No Wipe Top Coat or apply a second coat and cure.

Firstly you need to know your lamp type and wattage. Then adjust them to the times below.
UV 36 watt lamp requires a 2 minute cure per coat.
LED 12 watt lamp requires a 1 minute cure per coat.

11. Why is my Gel Polish lifting/peeling?
Product can lift/peel due to many reasons. What you use your nails for plays the biggest part in maintaining your manicure. Your nails are "Jewels, not Tools", so in saying that, be careful with them. Always use gloves when doing dishes or cleaning as chemicals can cause Gel Polish to lift. Swimming within 24 hours of having your gel polish applied can cause lifting. Medications can cause lifting, or even change in hormones.
The nail plate must be prepped properly for ultimate adhesion. Removal of all true cuticle and dehydration with a product like Isopropyl Alcohol or Cleanser Plus should be done. Capping your free edge is also a major must.
Keeping your layers thin, even if it means doing an extra coat to get the desired colour depth will also help with a lasting manicure.
