™ FAQ? 

Is the brush different for the JimmyGel Colours than the original Crystal Clear JimmyGel

Yes! JimmyGel Colours include premium rounded, high bristle-count brushes for better fading for baby boomers in all four of the new shades. Crystal Clear JimmyGel has its original flat brush for fast, easy application and enhanced control when adding structure.

How do the JimmyGelColours perform compared to Crystal Clear JimmyGel

Exactly the same! You can add the same flexible strength and long wear using either JimmyGel Colours or Clear JimmyGel.

Can I combine JimmyGel™ Colours to help find the perfect pink for my client’s skin tone? 

Yes! And it’s easy! Are you looking for a bit more pink than Soft Pink JimmyGel but not as much as Ideal Pink JimmyGel? Simply apply a coat of Ideal Pink, cure, and finish with a coat of Soft Pink JimmyGel for a balanced look.

Can I control the coverage of JimmyGelColours? 

Yes! And it’s easy! JimmyGel colours are semi-transparent, but they become more opaque as you add thickness, or coats. If you are looking for more bold, opaque looks, be sure to apply more coats until the desired look is achieved. Controlling your application thickness means looks from extremely natural to bright and bold are possible!

Is it HEMA free?
Like all Light Elegance gels, JimmyGel is 100% HEMA free!

What is the soak off time?
20-25 minutes when soaking thin layer of JimmyGel after removing any hard gel(s) on top and extra thickness.

What is the cure time for JimmyGel

We recommend 1 minute LED or 2 minutes UV, but you may find that it cures faster with thin applications. When applying for fast one-step manicures, cure for 2 minutes using the “120s” hard gel button in the LEDdot for high shine! How many applications of JimmyGel per bottle? 17-51 depending on length of nail and thickness of application.

Can JimmyGel™ be soaked off? 

It can! If you apply hard gels over it, you must, of course, file through the hard gel to allow the acetone to come in contact with the JimmyGel. Like any soak-off gel, the thicker the application, the longer the soak time, so removing as much of the JimmyGel as possible before soaking will reduce the soak time for complete removal. You can also do fast fills with JimmyGel and don't need to soak off completely every time for repeat clients!

What is the best way to soak JimmyGel™ off? 

For fastest removal, we recommend removing all products on top of the JimmyGel with a hand or eFile, filing the JimmyGel down to remove 90% of the JimmyGel, then soaking the JimmyGel in acetone for complete removal if desired by the client. We always recommend performing fills on top of the existing, reshaped JimmyGel and exposing the natural nail to acetone only if complete removal is desired by the client for prolonged nail health.

Can JimmyGel™ be used just as a base coat? Or does it have to be slightly built up to last? 

JimmyGel is flexible and lasts really well in just a thin coat over the natural nail. Adding structure is of course recommended for extensions.

What is the protocol of using JimmyGel™ with hard gel? 

JimmyGel acts as a soak-off suspension system under any Light Elegance hard gel colour or Lexy Line gel, which makes it perfect for soak-off clients that want to know the product can be completely removed using acetone. For removal, the hard gel must be filed completely off to allow the acetone to come in contact with the JimmyGel using a hand or eFile. We recommend also removing as much of the JimmyGel as possible with a file to reduce the soak-off time.
