What is Gel Polish?
Gel polishes are gentle to the natural nail and the polish stays intact on the nail for at least a couple of weeks with high shine and no cracking, peeling or chipping.
Gel Polish is a thick polish applied to the nail then cured under a UV light. The UV light hardens the gel helping it to last longer. It is recommend to have your gels removed and redone every 2 – 4 weeks otherwise it can weaken the nails.
UV curing refers to the chemical process that occurs when photo-initiators within the gel itself are exposed to the UV or blue light.
The energy from the light causes certain bonds in the initiator molecules to break, forming free radicals. The radicals begin attacking double bonds in the gel’s component molecules, beginning a polymerisation reaction which eventually encompasses all the molecules of the gel.
Gels usually contain a mixture of acrylic monomers and oligomers, which combine to form long, interlocking chains during the polymerisation, a process known as cross-linking.
These long, bonded chains make the gel hard and chemically resistant. Usually, once the gel manicure has been finished, there is a residual tacky layer, referred to as the “inhibition layer,” that is removed by wiping with a preferably lint-free wipe soaked in high concentrate alcohol.
The process typically ends with an application of cuticle oil on all fingers, to bring back nourishment into the cuticle after harsh alcohol application.
We offer Gel polish as a standard treatment which only involves the polish and a nail tidy. You can combine this treatment with a manicure or pedicure which includes all cuticle work.
