*Vogue Beauty is NOT an official distributor of en Vogue products.



Q. My Lac It! nails have been in the light for more than 5 minutes, but still feel wet or sticky. Why?

A.- It only takes 2 minutes for Lac It! to fully cure if using a 9watt UV light. You must wipe each nail with Lac It! Finishing Wipe and apply pressure when wiping to completely remove the dispersion film.

Q. What should I do if I get Lac It! Gel Polish on my skin?

A.- Use an orangewood stick to remove any base coat, gel polish color or top gloss on the skin around the nail.

Q. Why, after I wipe the finished nail, it is not shiny?

Try these suggestions:

  1. Be careful not to apply too much pressure when brushing on the Lac It! Top Gloss.
  2. It may be time to replace your UV bulb.
  3. Make sure you place your fingers completely inside the UV light for a full 2 minutes

Q. Can I fix the nail if this does happen?

A. -Yes. Simply buff the Top Gloss off and clean the nails with Lac It! Nail Prep. Apply another coat of Top Gloss, this time use less pressure and let the brush glide across the nail. Then cure for another 2 minutes.

Q. What can I do to prevent that from happening so it comes out shiny the first time?

A. – Apply one thin layer of Top Gloss to have complete coverage from right to left side including over the end of the nail. Then go back over the surface again with a small bead of Top Gloss on the tip of the brush, enough to allow your brush to glide across the nail. Then cure for 2 minutes.

Q. My Lac It! Gel Polish color has ripples in it, what’s wrong?

A. – You may have applied it too thickly and not have allowed enough curing time under the UV light. For best result, apply in two thin layers.

Q. Why does my color seem light and streaking?

A. – It is best to shake Lac It! Gel Polish bottles to remix the colors after they have been sitting for long periods. The first coat should be applied thin and slightly sheer. After curing, the second coat should be applied with full coverage.

Q. Can I use Lac It! Gel Polish on acrylic or gel nails?

A. – Yes, you can use Lac It! over acrylic or gel nails. It is best if you slightly buff the shine off the artificial nail enhancement before the gel polish application.

Q. Will I still need to use Base Coat if applying over acrylic or gel nails?

A. – Yes, you will need to use Lac It! Base Coat over the acrylic or gel nails.

Q. What can I do to prevent polish from chipping at the ends of my nail?

A. – Do not cover the ends of your nail with excess amount of color. A very small amount should be used. This allows the product to stay as thin as possible. The ends of the nail must be covered entirely with Lac It! Top Gloss.

Q. Can I apply more than one layer of Lac It! Gel Polish color?

A. – For best result, it is recommended to apply 2 thin layers of color. The first coat should be applied thin and slightly sheer. After curing, the second coat should be applied with full coverage.

Q. Why do I have problem with Lac It! Gel Polish peeling?

  1. Incorrect preparation. Oils may have been left on the surface of the nail. Make sure to buff oils off the nail using your nail prep stick and then wipe with Lac It! Nail Prep before starting your gel polish application.
  2. Applied the Base coat too thick. The Lac It! Base Coat must be applied very thin and even and cured for 2 minutes in a UV light.
  3. The ends of the nail should be covered entirely. Make sure to smooth out by brushing from cuticle area straight down to the end. Remove any excess gel polish build up during this step before placing into UV light.

Q. Can the base coat and Gel Polish Colors be cured longer than 2 minutes under the UV light?

A. – Yes, minimum curing time is 2 minutes for base coat and 2 minutes for gel polish.
