Ways to level the nail plate
You dream of a perfect gel-coat, but unfortunately your nails are not so smooth and even. Don't take it personally, as it's a problem that can be solved. Here are various methods which will help you achieve the desired effect: straighten your nails. Take note!
First, let's look at the causes of an uneven plate.


1. Mechanical damage: bumping, pinching, improperly performed manicure. An injured nail can grow back over time and the plate will be smooth and even as before, but a serious injury can permanently deprive a neat nail.

2. Bacterial or fungal infections. Skin and nail diseases often cause nail plate deformation, thinning and peeling.

3. An unbalanced diet. Longitudinal furrows in the surface of the plate can indicate a lack of iron or protein, and brittleness can indicate vitamin deficiencies.


Unfortunately, not all girls can boast of straight nails. There are a few basic ways to even them out. Namely as such are:

Smoothing with a base

You will need a thick to medium consistency base for smoothing. We recommend to align and dry one nail at a time.

How to use a nail base for levelling?

1. First prepare the nail plate: prepare it with a manicure, wipe the surface with a degreaser.
2. Apply a thin layer of the base, seal the ends, dry it in a lamp.
3. For smoothing, place a drop of the base in the centre of the nail and distribute from the cuticle to a free edge of the nail.
4. Dry for 30 seconds in a UV/LED lamp.
Now the nails are flat, you can safely apply the gel polish.

IMPORTANT: Liquid bases are not suitable for levelling as they can spread.

A nail plate levelling can also be done using biogel. Both transparent and camouflage shades are suitable for this purpose. Such material will have a number of advantages: naturalness and ecological compatibility, absence of chemical impurities, not only cosmetic but also therapeutic effect; nail plate growth stimulation, strengthening nails by activating keratin production, manicure durability, as well as its gentle levelling and easy removal.

How to line my nails with Biogel?
