Emboss Gel Tutorial


Preparation is everything...

  1. Use the Bluesky Nail File to file nails to the desired shape.
  2. Push back cuticles and trim where necessary. 
  3. Gently buff nails with your Bluesky Nail Buffer.
  4. Clean nails with a Bluesky Cleanser Wipe.

Slow and steady wins the race..

  1. Apply a thin layer of Bluesky Base Coat to all five nails, capping the ends. Avoid the skin and cuticle.
  2. Cure for 30 seconds under the Bluesky lamp.
  3. Apply your client's chosen gel polish in the same way as the base coat; a thin coat, cap the end, avoid the skin. 
  4. Cure for 60 seconds.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 building up the colour each time. 1 coat will give a sheer finish, 2 is normal, 3 will be a solid colour.
  6. Take your Bluesky Emboss Gel and, with a fine brush, put some gel on a palette.
  7. Take some gel and slowly start creating your pattern. Don't rush this step: make sure you control the thickness with every stroke.
  8. Once you've finished your design, cure for 60 seconds.
  9. Take some more Emboss Gel and modify the edges to make your pattern more vivid if required. Again, do this slowly. Cure for 60 seconds.
  10. Add any finishing touches to your design. Above, we've added small dots in the gaps of the pattern. Cure for 60 seconds.
  11. Apply a Bluesky Top Coat ensuring you cover your entire pattern. Cure for 60 seconds.
  12. Use a Bluesky Cleanser Wipe to remove the sticky residue leaving super shiny nails.
