Hard One Blush Queen: A New Generation Gel for Nail Professionals and Beginners
Hard One is a renowned line of nail gels, favored by both nail professionals and beginners. This new generation of gels boasts unique properties and characteristics.
These gels are infused with tiny particles of acrylic powder, often referred to as “flour gels.” These particles vanish after polymerization, resulting in a flawlessly smooth finish.
Hard One gels have a unique consistency. They are neither jelly-like nor creamy, but they aren’t entirely honey-like either. They are 100% self-leveling gels that can be easily shaped with a few brush strokes. They don’t immediately flow into the cuticle like traditional honey gels.
Their special formula ensures excellent adhesion and a lower likelihood of nail breakage or bending due to their enhanced hardness. Their unique properties, special formulas, easy application, and beautiful colors make them a top choice for experienced nail technicians and beginners who struggle with overly runny or thick gels.
To use, prepare the nail as usual by filing, pushing back the cuticle, and thoroughly cleaning any residue. Apply the dehydrator and preparation liquids (primer) and wait for them to dry. Apply the desired base gel and cure. Then, apply Hard One and shape it as desired.
Curing time is 2-3 minutes in a 36w UV lamp or 90 seconds in a UV/LED combo lamp.
