How to Extend the Lifespan of Your Semilac Gel Nails

Semilac gel nails are known for their long-lasting shine and durability. However, just like any other nail polish or manicure, they do require proper care and maintenance to ensure they last as long as possible. In this blog, we'll share some tips and tricks on how to extend the lifespan of your Semilac gel nails.

  1. Prepare Your Nails Properly Before applying Semilac gel polish - it's important to properly prepare your nails. This means filing them down to the desired shape and removing any old nail polish or debris. Additionally, make sure your nails are completely dry and free of any oils, as this can affect the adhesion of the gel polish.

  2. Apply Thin Coats When applying Semilac gel polish - it's best to apply thin coats of gel polish rather than thick ones. This not only helps the polish dry faster, but it also ensures that each layer is properly cured under the UV LED lamp. Thick coats can take longer to cure and may even peel or chip more easily.

  3. Use a Base and Top Coat - Semilac base and top coats are specifically designed to work with Semilac gel polish. Using these products can help to enhance the adhesion of the gel polish and ensure that your nails stay shiny and protected for longer.

  4. Avoid Harsh Chemicals - Harsh chemicals such as cleaning products, acetone, and alcohol can weaken and damage your nails. It's important to wear gloves when using these types of products, and to be careful when handling them.

  5. Moisturise Your Nails - Keeping your nails and cuticles moisturised is essential for maintaining healthy, strong nails. Use cuticle oil or hand cream regularly to keep your nails hydrated and prevent them from becoming brittle or dry.

  6. Be Gentle with Your Nails - Avoid using your nails as tools, such as opening cans or scratching surfaces. This can cause your Semilac gel nails to chip or peel, shortening their lifespan.

In conclusion, Semilac gel nails can last for up to 21 days or more with proper care and maintenance. By following these simple tips, you can extend the lifespan of your gel nails and keep them looking beautiful and shiny for longer. With a little effort and attention, you can enjoy a long-lasting and durable manicure that will make your hands look and feel their best.
