How does gel nail polish work? You can't just apply it like regular nail polish?

Report as

Gel nail polish has to be cured under a UV lamp (36 watt is best), and preferably used with a special base & top coat. Each layer must be cured individually and nail must be prepped before polishing. CND Shellac and OPI are the best known brands for this procedure.

Thanks! I don't know about the whole UV lamp thing. And it sounds like it gets expensive to buy a kit. I heard there's UV-free gel nail polish. Thanks again!

I read some reviews on the UV-free nail polish.... Definitely won't be buying.
