How do I make my own gel nail polish?
To create a gel polish you simply pour your nail lacquer right into the Up2You bottle. I believe this is a 50/50 mixture since the Up2You bottle contains 7.5ml of liquid, and you add another 7.5ml of lacquer to the bottle. You fill it up just to the bottom of the neck of the bottle.

Can I add oil to nail polish?
Sweet almond oil, chia seed oil, green tea seed oil, avocado oil or hazelnut oil would all be great choices.

If you’d like to add more oil, make a small test batch first to make sure the polish dries and hardens.
