Gel nails are a dream come true for girls who love perfectly pretty fingertips. These artificial nails add a pop of color with a mirror-like smoothness that lasts for up to a couple of weeks without chipping. What’s more, they don’t take too long to dry. With the help of the UV lamp used to cure gel nail polish, you’ll be in and out of the salon in no time.
If you’re thinking of trying out a gel manicure on your next salon visit, you might want to know these three things first:
1. Gel nails are long wearing
If chipped polish is the bane of your existence then you’ll definitely love gel nails. Gel nails are supposed to last for up to two weeks, give or take a few days. It’s perfect for people who don’t necessarily have the time to visit a nail salon every week as well as for girls out there who tend to get busy with their hands. This means for weeks on end, you’ll have fab and shiny nails no matter what life throws at you.
2. No awful fumes
If you’ve been having your nails done for a while now then you’re probably familiar with the smell of nail polish. If you’re worried about inhaling these fumes then gel polish is for you since they are generally odor-free.
3. You’ll need to give your cuticles extra love
Since gel nails last a long time, they might cause cuticle dryness. But don’t fret! All you need to do is give a little more TLC to your cuticles and they’ll be happy for it. If you have gel manicures, rub a generous amount of good quality cuticle oil every day to keep them soft and supple.
