Now that your gel manicure foundation is set, it’s time to add some color with Lomasi’s Color Gel.


Birchbox Breakdown

Fortunately for us (and our Mint.com budgets), we can now create a salon-quality, chip-free gel mani at home. As the second step of the Lomasi four-step process, the sheer base gel preps nails for a smooth, even finish that extends wear and lengthens shine.

How it Works

Lomasi’s Base Gel not only provides a clean canvas for color, it also evens out nails’ texture, preventing ridges and bumps. Like all Lomasi products, it comes free of formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP, toluene, or camphor.

How to Use

Unlike 007’s favorite cocktail, Base Gel does not like to be shaken. After starting with Just for Tips, apply the base to nails, starting ¼ inch from cuticles. After applying to all four fingers, cure for one minute using Lomasi’s specialized curing light. Then apply Base Gel to thumb, and cure for one minute. Repeat on other hand and follow with Steps 3-4 of the Lomasi system.
