Gel polish stays intact on the nail for at least a couple of weeks with high shine and no cracking, peeling or chipping. Anyone can get a gel manicure, whether you have natural nails long or short, gels last longer, feel stronger and shine like a diamond.
So here’s how the process works. Like your run of the mill manicure, a gel manicure starts with cutting the nails, lightly soaking the hands and trimming the cuticles. The polish itself is where things get a bit different. You start with a base coat layer this primes your nails for the gel, which is a speial kind of polish and instead of air drying gets firmed up under a UV light. After each coat is painted on, you place your hands under the UV light for 30 to 60 seconds. A glossy topcoat is then applied take one final minute under the lamp and then you’re done.
