Gel II Manicure Many women and even some men love to get their nails done, but hate how much time it takes to dry and on top of that they are extremely easy to ruin and chip. There is a new type of manicure trending know as Shellac, Gel nails, or No chip. According to my cosmetology instructor Samantha Rudman, this process takes about 35 to 40 minutes but dries in seconds. Many individuals would love to know this process even the men that do not wish to get it done because it is like magic; once second your nails are sticky and wet and the next second they are dry and impossible to ruin. Today I am going to be explaining the tools and steps to complete a fantastic Gel II manicure, and also the tools and steps to remove one. The first things you need to know about a Gel II Manicure are the tools. According to geltwo.com, the first tool you are going to need is a grit nail file; 300- grit is recommended. The next you are going to need the Gel II cleanser, to dehydrate and dry out the nail. Another important tool you will need is the Gel II UV/LED lamp which is going to set the polish. You will also need the Gel II no base coat gel polish of your choice and the Gel II top coat which is going to seal the deal. Now that you know the tools, let us put them together to complete the steps. The first important step in completing a Gel II Manicure is to Buff the top and edges of the nail and wipe over the nail with Gel II cleanser. Buffing is going to create a rough, even base to help the polish sit and stick and applying the cleanser is going to dehydrate the nail. Step two in the Gel II manicure process is to polish a thin layer of the color of your choice. Be sure the layer is even and thin, making it too thick will clump the polish making it easier to peel off. Step three is to illuminate the nail by placing it under the Gel II UV/ LED lamp for 30 seconds. Step four you are going to be applying the second

    Nail anatomy What’s the purpose of the nail plate? The nail plate acts as a protective shield, shielding the delicate tissues of the underlying Nail Bed. What is the Matrix?

As more and more cells are produced the older ones are pushed outwards and flattened, all this pushing and flattening results in…

    In gel electrophoresis, DNA fragments move through a porous matrix made of agarose, a gelatin-like substance purified from seaweed. The agarose is melted like Jell-O® and then poured into a plastic tray to harden into a slab called a gel. A plastic comb inserted at one end while the gel is hardening forms wells where DNA samples can be placed. The DNA is mixed with a loading buffer that contains glycerol—this makes it heavier than water, so it will sink to the bottom of the well. The gel is then…
