Description

We have renamed our original Base/Topcoat to Tacky Top! Same great product, just a new name :)

  • 15ml bottle
  • Great for darker colored polish as Tacky Top does not contain UV blockers
    which can give certain shades a blue hue.
  • Excellent for an array of art techniques
  • Easily and safely clean your art brushes with Tacky Top

TIP:
We recommend our Natural or Builder Base for natural nail gel polish application.

Application Procedures

OVER ACRYLIC, SCULPTING GEL OR ACRYGEL:

  1. Simply shape your enhancement with our Ugly Duckling Medium Zebra File, Coarse Buffer or if you prefer an e-file: the Medium grit Arbor Sanding Band. Do not buff or finish the nail with anything finer or you may risk the polish/top coat peeling.
  2. Remove all dust. Do not use a cleanser as some cleansers can contain oil. Do not use alcohol or acetone either as it will soften the grooves from finish filing and create too smooth a surface for maximum adhesion. Feel free to have your clients wash their hands, just be sure that the nails are completely dry before top coating.
  3. Apply Tacky Top directly over the dust free enhancement and cure in our Ugly Duckling LED Gel Lamp for 60 seconds.
  4. Allow nails to cool approximately 45-60 seconds after removing from the LED Lamp before cleansing. Remove the tacky inhibition layer from the nails with Ugly Duckling Gel Cleanse.

OVER GEL POLISH & COLOR GEL:

  1. Apply gel polish/color gel and cure. Do not remove tacky inhibition layer.
  2. Apply Tacky Top and cure in Ugly Duckling LED Lamp for 60 seconds.
  3. Allow nails to cool approximately 45-60 seconds after removing from the LED Lamp before cleansing. Remove the tacky inhibition layer from the nails with Ugly Duckling Gel Cleanse.

TIP: Always allow Tacky Top to "cool" for 45-60 seconds after removing from the LED Lamp before cleansing to ensure the highest gloss shine.

FAQs
Q: My Tacky Top doesn't seem to be as shiny as normal. Is there something I can do differently?
A: Always be sure to fully cure your top coat: 60 seconds in the Ugly Duckling LED Gel Lamp(s). We also recommend waiting 45-60 seconds after the final cure to allow the top coat to "cool" before cleansing the inhibition layer with Gel Cleanse and before applying cuticle oil or touching the surface of the nails (as this can transfer our natural oils!)

So many uses!

I use tacky top all the time, I absolutely love it for covering up designs I have done I gel polish, to finish the nail. I use tacky top to smooth out the ails before finishing with top coat and it is SOO shiny in the end! This is a great product to have
