Semicure Nail

Semi-cured gel nail strips change the entire nail care culture. With game-changing technology, these nail strips are made with real gel nail in triple layer only cured 60%. Upon curing, you can enjoy salon-quality gel nails in the comfort of your own home.


For All Nail Shapes & Sizes

Semicure nails are designed to be stretched to fit all nail sizes.

Strong Adhesion

Semicure gel is unique in its c-curved design, which allows the strips to reach the edges of the nail beds to provide the strongest adhesion.

Safe Ingredients

All ingredients are certified, and all products have been tested to be trusted.

Triple Layer Gel

The semicure nail is layered with three different gels : The base gel, color gel and top gel.

How to Apply

Cleaning nail surface 

Wash your hands before application, and remove all oil and moisture on every nail surface using a prep pad.

* Sweat, moisture, hand cream, oil on your nails may reduce adhesion of the semicured gel.

Choosing a strip size

Choose the semicured gel that best fits your nail size and remove the clear film.
If it's hard to find the strips that are your nail size, stretch them to fit your nail. 

* Please refer to 'Tips by ohora Crew' at the bottom of the page for tips on creating new size. 

Applying a semicured gel

Peel off semicured gel from the opposite side of the cuticle and apply it slightly apart from your cuticle line.

*Check the direction of the cuticle labed on the product before peeling off

Firmly pressing a semicured gel 

Apply the pressure from the cuticle to the edge over the entire surface to prevent the hairs from getting caught in the space between the nail surface and the strip.  

Trimming the excess (Filing)

Trim the excess using the rough side of the file.  

Repeatedly curing until the gels get hard enough

Cure the semicure gel nails 2-3 times with the ohora UV Gel Lamp.
If the nails are not hard enough, cure an additional 2-3 times.

*Please note that overcuring may cause early chipping and cracking.  

How to Store the Left Strips

Store the left items in the paper case to avoid any light exposure. 

Please avoid any type of light exposure including direct sunlight. It may cause the strips getting hardened before use.

Store the strips at a room temperature (68°F to 86°F).   
When the strips get hard, place the strips at a warm temperature to soften the semicure gels before application.
