How to apply gel polish with the One Step Pen
Here’s a quick overview to demonstrate just how easy it is to use the One Step Pen but please be sure to read the instructions included with the packaging carefully and watch our handy video. The correct application is the key to beautiful styling.
Start by preparing the pen. Hold with the brush pointing up and twist the opposite end until you see the UV nail polish appear – it is this twisting action that controls the dose of gel polish on the brush.

For an even greater shine, remember to apply oil on your nails once you’ve finished and polish the nail plate thoroughly.

One Step Pen FAQs
How many manicures will I get out of a One Step Pen?
For a great and long-lasting colour, we recommend applying 3 coats of gel polish as part of one complete manicure.All our Semilac One Step Gel Polish Pens have a capacity of 3ml – that’s enough for five manicures.To make sure you get the most out of your pen, and quality coverage every time, be sure to clean the brush gently after each manicure. Simply wipe the end with a nail cleaner and pad, and then store the pen with the brush end facing up.
How long does the One Step Pen take to dry?
The whole ethos behind the innovative One Step Pen is to achieve beautiful nails quickly - and that includes drying time.
The drying time (or curing time as it’s often referred to) of a One Step Pen under various lamps is as follows:
UV LED 9W lamp - 60 seconds
UV LED 24W lamp - 60 seconds
UV LED 36W lamp - 30 seconds
UV LED 48/24W lamp - 30-60 seconds

If your nails still feel a sticky to the touch after this time, gently wipe over them with nail cleaner and lint free pad. Don’t panic if a little colour transfers onto the pad – this is normal and you haven’t ruined your manicure, phew!
