The Gelish Dip system is an acrylic enhancement but requires fewer tools than a regular acrylic application. This system provides a gel like finish without the need to cure in LED or UV light.

If applied correctly Gelish Dip will last up to 14 days wear without chipping. There are over 100 colours to choose from, in a variety of glitters, shimmers, creams and sheer finishes. Most of these beautiful shades are also available in Gelish Gel Polish.

Don’t Forget

Gelish Dip Base Coat is an adhesive, therefore any excess residue on the neck of the bottle will set, making it extremely difficult to open. To prevent this make sure you wipe the neck of the bottle before sealing. You can also rub a small amount of cuticle oil on the neck of the bottle to prevent sticking.
