Gel nail polishes have been around for a while, but there’s still some misconception about the pros and cons of a gel mani.
Some folks believe gel nail polishes damage nails. In reality, gel nail polish provides a protective coating to the nails. The nail polish will provide you with strong, hard nails that won’t be prone to breaking or any other damage. If the polish is removed with care (ie soaked off with acetone instead of picked and pulled off), there will be no damage.
Another reason to go for gel mani is how long it lasts. A gel manicure easily lasts two weeks, but can last up to three weeks without chipping or wearing away. So even though a gel mani may cost a little more upfront, it will save money and time in not having to get your nails done as often.
There’s also no need to worry about smudges after you’ve dried your nails at the salon. Gel polishes are cured under a special dryer. Once your technician tells you you’re done, your nails are completely dry – you can dig through your purse for your wallet or your keys with no worry of smudging, chipping, or otherwise messing up your new mani!
