Follow these simple steps to ensure long lasting, smooth gel polish:

Step 1

File your nails into the desired shape and length.

Step 2

Using the RYV Cuticle pusher, trim and push back cuticles

Step 3

Before application shake the bottle well so the polymers enable the polish to set.  Not shaking the polish will separate the polymers making it go gloopy and thick.

Apply a thin Layer of RYV Base Coat to each nail, starting at the cuticle and painting to the tip in even strokes. Make sure that you coat the tip of the nail all the way to the edge. At this point the nails will have a sticky residue. Leave this alone until the final step as it will stop the next layer adhering properly. Continue until all the nails have an even base coat

Cure each hand under the RYV LED Lamp for 60 seconds.

Step 4

Apply your first layer of RYV Gel Nail Polish thinly in broad, even strokes from the cuticle to the tip of the nail. Ensure that you coat the nail in even thickness right to the edge. After all the nails have been painted put each hand under the LED Lamp for 120 Seconds. Your nails will still have a sticky residue this is normal and will be removed at the end of the manicure

Removal of RYV Gel Polish is simple and effective, follow the steps below

Step 1

Gently buff the nails using the RYV buffer block.

Step 2

File the tip of the nail (as if shaping nails) to break the seal you made when capping during application. This will allow the removal solution to penetrate the polish.

Using the RYV Foil Remover Wraps saturate the cotton pad in 100% acetone and wrap the foils around your finger, ensuring the cotton pad is placed on the nail. Leave for 15 to 20 minutes and remove the foils. At this point you should see the polish flake. Use the RYV Cuticle pusher to gently push the polish of the nails
