Once ive completed the nails, after filing and removing dust, i pop a little bit of nail glue onto the the nail then apply the flower using tweezers. Then apply my final coat of gel.
Alternatively you could apply it straight into your first coat of gel, cure then apply your second coat of gel straight over.
OK, this is what i did. I applied my first thin coat of gel to the nail, cured, then i applied the flower, but it didn't lay flat, it keep lifting. I tried putting additional gel on it, but i couldn't get the flower to lay flat!:cry:
try putting a tiny teeny bit of gel under the flower rather than on top. What gel do you use? Mine is a builder gel so quite thick and the petals stick right to it.
Are these the real dried flowers? I have heard somewhere that you can wet them before applying them so they are more flexable but not sure if this is for use with gel and L&P as I am not so sure about water (allbeit such a small amount) being put into the enhancement.
