I am doing (soak off gel nails at home. I am using the OPI axxium products, with a 36 watt IBD brand UV light. After each stage of curing, should you be able to touch the nails--meaning should they be dry? Mine are still sticky after the recommended time.....don't know what I am doing wrong. Should I be drying them longer (or shorter) to get them so they are not sticky? Any advice is apreciated.

I've never tried to do my nails at home, but my nail technician always wipes my nails with alchohol after the UV treatment. Have you tried that?
