Gel nails are great because they last long and are hard to chip.
WHAT ARE GEL NAILS?
Gel nail polish is a liquid gel which usually comes in a bottle or pot. The gel liquid is painted to the nail in the same way that normal nail polish is, but it’s easier as it’s self-levelling and you won’t leave brush strokes. Each coat of polish is cured under a LED / UV Lamp for 1-3 minutes (depending on the polish brand and lamp).
There’s no need to worry about smudging or chipping, as gel nails look like polish but dry instantly. We mainly use O.P.I brand gels for the best results.
WHY DO PEOPLE WEAR GEL NAILS?
Aside from looking gorgeous, there are many reasons people wear gel nails:
No dry time. Once your manicure is complete it is completely dry immediately. You can go straight out, get changed, go swimming, root around in your bag….
To stop biting nails
To protect nails from wear and tear
The mirror-like shine that lasts throughout your manicure.
For a manicure that will last longer than a few days (when going on holiday for example)
