Gelish Blooming Gel
Blooming 201
Blooming Gel isn't new, but it's making a comeback in a big, artful way.

Blooming Gel is one of those innovative formulations that make creating nail art super simple. While we've all seen the basic Blooming Gel techniques in action (mostly flowers), wow your clients by incorporating some more inventive and stylish techniques into your repertoire to increase your bottom line.

In case you aren't familiar with it, Blooming Gel is a thin viscosity product that allows gel polish to disperse — or “bloom” — on top of it, creating unique designs. Depending on how many colors you use and what tools you manipulate it with, you can use Blooming Gel to create all different types of nail art looks. But first, Gelish Nail Artist Erin Eng offers some basic Do's and Don'ts.

  • DO only work on one nail at a time; this prevents the design from over spreading. Once you're happy with the design, put the nail in the lamp to cure.
  • DON'T apply Blooming Gel too thick, otherwise the design won't spread correctly and the nail will end up looking clumpy.
  • DO use gel polish only. Gelish Art Form Gels are too thick to work with Blooming Gel.
