Why is it worth choosing Gel Polishes?
Gel manicures are constantly growing in popularity for a reason. If we ask women what they miss most in the case of classic nail polishes, their answer is: durability. The downside of classic nail polishes is their low resistance to mechanical damage or chipping. Housework or other activities where the hands are heavily involved can cause the polish to chip off or simply fall off the nail. In such situations, a gel polish turns out to be irreplaceable, which is a combination of a classic polish and gel. Properly performed gel manicure will allow you to enjoy an impeccable manicure for up to 3 weeks. An additional advantage of gel polish is the ease of application. To perform a gel manicure, you only need time and the right products.
What is needed for a Gel Manicure?
To make gel nails, you need a few essentials to do the styling correctly. Below is a list of products that are an absolute must have when it comes to making gel nails:
UV / LED Lamp: Gel polishes do not dry out by themselves. It should be cured under a UV / LED lamp. Without this device, styling is impossible.
Nail file: Thanks to the filing of the nails with a file, they will take the appropriate shape.
Sanding block: This is a special block for matting the nail plate. It will allow for more grip of the base.
Dust-free cotton Pads: Dust-free pads will improve cleaning of the plate after it becomes dull, leaving no dust. They require soaking with a cleaner.
Nail Cleaner: A liquid with which you can clean and degrease the plate.
Base Coat: Unlike classic polishes, gel polish requires the base to be applied directly to the nail plate. The gel polish can only be applied to the hardened base.
Gel Polish Colour: This is the colour that is applied to the base. Two thin layers should be applied, and each of them should be cured in the lamp.
Top Coat: The top should be put on at the end of styling. It protects the colour and gives it an appropriate glow or matt finish, depending on the selected product.
