Gelie-Cure System

The Gelie-Cure system is composed of 3 simple steps to treat damaged nails and seal them with a demi-gel layer. As this demi-gel layer locks in treatment, it can be worn three different ways. Leave it natural, paint over it with your favorite Zoya color, or use it as a shiny topper for a lasting manicure.  The full system includes three service options to give you control over how you wear your manicure.

The Products

As step one in the Gelie-Cure system, this unique serum that mimics the natural nail’s hydration mechanism repairs damaged keratin. It improves nail strength and flexibility as it is worn as a cushion underneath the Repair Base.

The second step in the Gelie-Cure System features a  groundbreaking formula that adheres to the nail plate
and locks the Rescue Serum into the nail’s keratin layers.
Invisible fillers strengthen the nail and smooth out uneven
ridges, flaking and separation.

The third step in the Gelie-Cure System is the first ever demi-gel formula: ultra-light, high-shine, flexible, fileable and damage-free. It adheres to the Repair Base instead of requiring a gel underneath. A two minute removal with Zoya’s Award Winning Remove+. 

Use Clear Shine after curing the Naked Gelie. It’s a quick and simple wiping formula that removes any residue while increasing the shine of the Naked Gelie. Essential for a high gloss finish.

Removing Gelie-Cure only takes 2 minutes using Zoya Remove +. Before wrapping the nails in foil, you should remove polish if you didn’t apply the Gelie-Topper and apply a cuticle oil to prevent staining on the skin.

A cotton ball soaked with Remove + rests on a nail to demonstrate step one of the Gelie-Cure System removal process.

1. Saturate Cotton

Saturate a cotton ball with Zoya Remove + and apply to each nail. Wrap with foil, fitted tightly to the shape of the nail.

Wiggle the cotton ball across the ail as you remove the foil. Gelie-Cure will be removed easily with no scraping. For thicker layers, open foil and rub cotton to remove.
