How to Fix Gel Nails That Have Lifted?    

Assess the Damage: Before attempting any fixes, examine the extent of the lifting. If it's minor and limited to a small area, repairing it is simpler. However, extensive lifting might require professional intervention. 

Gather Supplies: You'll need a nail file, buffer, alcohol or acetone, cotton balls or pads, cuticle pusher, and a gel nail repair kit (including nail glue, gel base coat, and gel top coat). 

Prep Your Nails: Start by gently removing any remaining gel polish using a nail file or buffer. Be careful not to damage your natural nails while doing this 

Cleanse the Nails: Wipe the nail surface with alcohol or acetone to remove any oils, debris, or residue. This step ensures better adhesion for the repairs. 

Address the Lifted Area: Use a cuticle pusher or an orange stick to lift the separated gel from the nail bed. Avoid forcefully peeling it off, as it can damage your nails. 

Trim and Shape: If the lifted gel is long, carefully trim it using nail clippers. File the edges to smoothen and shape the remaining gel to match the nail's curvature. 

Apply Nail Glue: Using a small amount of nail glue, carefully secure the lifted portion back onto the nail bed. Gently press it down and hold it in place for a few seconds until the glue sets. 

Smooth the Surface: Once the repair is secure, buff the area lightly to blend the edges and create a smooth surface transition between the natural nail and the gel. 

Reapply Gel: Apply a thin layer of gel base coat over the repaired area, ensuring it covers the entire nail surface. Cure it under a UV or LED lamp according to the product instructions.
