DIY Gel Nails

How to do your own DIY gel nails at home! Here are the supplies, colors, LED light and steps you need. 
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • LED light


  • Base coat + top coat set
  • UV soak off gel nail color
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Nail file
  • LED light


  • Clean nails with rubbing alcohol to remove any lotions or soaps
  • Use a file to buff nails a bit.
  • Apply base coat and cure each hand¬†under the LED for 30 seconds. I use the bare minimum of light to be on the safer side, and it seems to work fine.
  • Apply color and cure for 30 seconds. If you're using a saturated color you probably want to do two coats, but to save polish, time, and money I just do one coat of my sparkly polish.
  • Apply top coat and cure for 30 seconds.
