How long does it take for OPI Gelcolor to cure?

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.

In the interest of being "seasonal", I removed "Suzi Says Da" and put on "Don't Know, Beets Me" this afternoon. This is another OPI polish I picked up in the discount bin at the beauty supply on my way home. I passed on it initially and then, after reading the outstanding reviews and the 100% repurchase rating here on MUA, I went back to get one. My heart sank when there didn't seem to be any left (there had been several a day or 2 earlier) but I was persistent and there, at the bottom of the bin, was the last bottle they had. Home it came with me (along with its "last bottle also" friend, "An Affair in Red Square")."Beets Me" is a rich, deep shocking pink. It covers really well and, as a previous reviewer stated, it has such a beautifully shiny finish that it hardly needs a top-coat. Perfect for the warmer weather. I smile every time I look at my fingers!Updated to add: I removed this yesterday (May 20) which means I got pretty much a week's wear from this polish which is almost unheard of for me, unless I've had a professional manicure (they seem to be able to get the polish to "wrap around" my nail tips and not chip nearly so readily). Honestly, that is such good wear for me and combined with the fabulous colour (a good friend even commented on how much she loved the colour), it is a total winner of a polish.

My absolute favourite nail colour!!! Love this every time I wear it, bright pink colour but not trashy. Lovely consistency and great after two coats don't really need a top coat. Would recommend this to everyone I wear this on my toes all summer :)
