You’ll find all the nail tools, accessories, and equipment you need to apply gel polish professionally in the Silcare® range, including foil remover wraps, nail art brushes, and UV/LED lamps.
Silcare® Flexy Hybrid Gel Polish
Silcare Flexy Hybrid Gel is the ultimate nail polish for professional applications. Easy to apply, it is slightly thicker than most varnishes available on the market today, and as such, a single stroke of the brush goes a long way. With its intensive pigmentation, Flexy Nail Polish ensures the perfect manicure every time and offers exceptional durability.
Flexy hybrid gel polish comes in a gorgeous selection of colours (over 200), and there are glitters and Silcare® Cat Eyes for those looking for some sparkle. There are two base coat options in the range, Flexy Hybrid Gel Solid Base and Flexy Hybrid Gel Keratin + Vitamins Base, to suit all nail types.
Silcare® Color IT Premium
Silcare Color IT Premium gel polish has an increased amount of pigment for intense colour. A popular choice with salon professionals worldwide, it is easy to apply with an LED or UV lamp, simple to remove with acetone or hybrid liquid remover, and a single manicure or pedicure can last two weeks or more.
There are over 300 colours to choose from in the Silcare Color IT Premium nail varnish collection, with ten shades of yellow alone. In this collection, you’ll also find Cat Eye Color IT Premium, which offers a cat-eye-like effect with layers of shimmer and sparkle, and Thermo Color IT Premium, with twelve temperature changing pastels. Finally, there’s the Unicorn Color IT Premium polish collection of hybrid gels that sparkle with rainbow glitter. Each colour comes in two shades, pastel and intense, to help you achieve a unicorn, rainbow, ombre look. It’s the stuff fairy tale manicures are made of.
Color it! Premium Hard Builder Base Coat comes in five different colours for nail repairs and reconstructions, while Color it! Premium Top Coat offers just the right amount of shine.

Silcare Garden of Colour hybrid gel polish is the most durable in the range.

How To Apply Silcare® Gel Nail Polish
While LED/UV curing times differ slightly, depending on the product you choose, the application is the same across the Silcare® nail lacquer range:
- Manicure your nails as you would normally.
- Apply a thin layer of base coat, taking care to cap the free edges, and cure with an LED/UV lamp as indicated on the bottle.
- Apply a thin layer of your chosen Silcare® gel polish and cure with an LED/UV lamp as directed on the bottle.
- Repeat set three.
- Apply a thin layer of top coat taking care to cap the free edges, and cure with an LED/UV lamp as indicated on the bottle.
- Remove the sticky surface layer with a lint-free pad soaked in Silcare nail cleanser.
- Apply cuticle oil to rehydrate the nail bed.
How To Remove Silcare® Gel Nail Polish
You can remove any Silcare® Nail Polish in the same way that you would remove any gel polish:
- Soak a cotton pad or remover wrap with Silcare remover and wrap around the finger. Secure in place with a clip or foil.
- Leave the nails to soak for 10-15 minutes – or as directed.
- Twist gently to remove the wrap and as much gel polish as possible.
- Remove any remaining gel with an orangewood stick and pad soaked with nail polish remover.
- Rinse the hands and apply cuticle oil.
If the lacquer doesn’t come away easily, repeat the process a second time.
