The semi-permanent varnish shows regrowth after a few weeks. If you don’t want to replace your manicure yet, you can have your regrowth touched up. Below is a step-by-step plan for touching up a semi-permanent nail polish manicure.
Retouching a semi-permanent varnish manicure:
Step 1: Make the exposed edge matte
Only remove the top layer with a portable nail drill. Matt the natural nail and the old semi-permanent varnish. For better adhesion, we recommend filing horizontally. Degrease the nail with a cleaner.
Step 2: Apply nail prep and primer
Apply the nail prep on the area or the natural and visible nail. Let the nail prep dry before applying other nail products. Once the nail prep has dried, apply a coat of primer just like the nail prep.
Step 3: Apply a base coat
After the primer has completely dried, apply a layer of base coat on the area where the natural nail is visible and cure under a UV/LED lamp. Make sure the regrowth matches the rest of the semi-permanent polish from the previous manicure.
Step 4: Application of the color of the semi-permanent varnish
Apply the color of your choice. Then catalyze your nails under a UV/LED lamp. Perform this step twice.
Step 5: Apply top coat
Finally, apply a layer of top coat over the entire nail. Then catalyze your nails under a nail lamp.
