Polygel Slip Solution What is it & What Can You Use Instead

Slip Solution is a chemical that is used to make the consistency of your Polygel thinner. So that it can be easier to maneuver and thus applied more smoothly.

You see Polygel directly from the bottle tends to be very thick and sticky making it hard to move around and mold. So to apply your solution you need to temporarily thin it out which is the purpose of your slip solution.

Slip Solution does not have any harsh or toxic odor. And it won’t cure or harden the solution, only UV light can cure it.

How to Use Slip Solution on Polygel Nails

Slip solution is applied in tiny amounts using a Polygel brush. To use it you need to:

  • Firstly, add your polygel to the surface that you are working with, which could be your nails, a nail form or a nail tip.
  • Next, apply the solution onto your Brush by dipping it into the slip solution.
  • And then use the wet polygel brush to mold and work it.
  • The damp brush will make the polygel nice and smooth allowing you to easily maneuver and mold it.

What is Polygel Slip Solution Made of

The main active ingredients in most brands of slip solution are Isopropyl Alcohol and Isobutyl Acetate.

But the exact ingredients will vary with each brand.

What Can You Use Instead of Slip Solution

The main alternatives to slip solution are:

  1. Rubbing Alcohol – Alcohol is the main ingredient in slip solution so you can easily use most forms of alcohol as a substitute.
  2. A Gel Base Coat – is transparent and has a watery consistency which means that it can act as a substitute for your slip solution. You can use it just like you would usually use regular slip solution.
  3. Acetone-Free Nail Polish Remover. has a similar chemical makeup like slip solution. But I only recommend using it as a last resort.
