What are Gel Nails ?
Gel nails are hypo-allergenic and odor-free. It’s like a coat of armor for
the nails and the luminous shine is unparalleled.
A gel nail service is a permanent gel coating applied to your own nails, or sculpted, creating a strong, thin natural looking nail.
Gels do not not contain Formaldehyde, gluteraldehyde, acids or acrylates.
They are odorless, flexible like your own nails, and such a pleasure to wear.
I have visited many salons in and around the area to view what they are calling Gel Nails. Many NSS (Non-Standard) salons today are selling a service called Powder-Gel. While there is a product out there by Le-Chat, called Powder Gel, this is not a true authentic gel nail service.
This is in fact another form of Acrylic Nails!.
Gel Nails are NEVER a powder sprinkled over your nail bed, and then a resin, or uv top coat applied. Furthermore, if your nail tech is dipping her brush in liquid and then the powder your still getting acrylic nails.
You know your getting a true gel nail service when your nail professional applies a 3 - 4 step application of a gel. Each thin layer is UV Cured for 2 min.
