How do I use OPI Gelcolor polish?
The Gelcolor application process is very similar to the other soak off gel polishes... This is how you do it:
Step 1. Prepare the nail by using an orangewood stick to push the cuticles back for a clean application of gel
Step 2. Shape your nails to your style with a natural nail filer (150 grit or higher)
Step 3. Prepare the natural nail by gently removing the shine using a buffer... lightly buff it to rough up the nail beds
Step 4. Remove the oils and dust on your nail by using nail cleanser
OPI Gelcolor Application
Step 5. (Roll the gelcolor bottle in your hands to mix the contents) Apply a thin even layer of Gelcolor Base Coat onto your nail.
Step 6. Place your hand in an LED Lamp and cure for 10 seconds or UV Lamp and cure for 1 minute. The top coat will remain tacky/sticky, but this is normal of any soak off gel polish.
Step 7. (Roll the Gelcolor bottle in your hands to mix the contents) Apply a thin even layer of Gelcolor Color coat to your nail. Don't forget to cap the nail edges to create a seal. Make sure you remove any Gelcolor from the skin prior to curing.
Step 8. Place your hand in an LED Lamp and cure for 20 seconds or UV Lamp and cure for 2 minute.
Step 9. Apply a second coat of Gelcolor color to the nail.
Step 10. Place your hand in an LED Lamp and cure for 20 seconds or UV Lamp and cure for 2 minute.
Step 11. Apply a thin even layer of Gelcolor Top Coat onto your nail. The top coat creates a high shine while protecting the gel layers below it from damage. Don't froget to cap the nail edges to create a seal.
Step 12. Place your hand in an LED Lamp and cure for 20 seconds or UV Lamp and cure for 2 minute.
Step 13. Use a liberal amount of alcohol (99%) or gel cleanser with a lint free pad to remove the tacky/sticky residue from your nail.

This is by far my favorite neutral color!
The top of the bottle cracked abd broje off when I opened it. I'm waiting for a response back from the company because I have requested a new bottle be shipped to me.
It’s such a lovely color, but I found that it didn’t apply well. I’ve been doing my own gel manis for a few years and Im pretty good at it. However, I’ve found Don’t Bossa Nova to apply very unevenly. This is unfortunate because I really want to use this polish, it’s beautiful, but it’s gone in the garbage instead. Please not that this was an OPI issue, not an issue with Beyond Polish. I had no issues at all with their service.
I really love this color and finding it at Beyond Polish for a good price was great. Good quality and fast shipping.
Every time I was out and noticed a perfect neutral with a hint of beige, hint of cream, and just the lightest of some lavendary white I would gawk and covet. This that shade. When you put it on, it just conveys that you know what you’re doing and you know how to but the most perfect shade of neutral.
