Manicures are an integral part of many individual daily and weekly beauty routines. That said, having too many manicures can damage your nail bed and make your natural nails weak, brittle and discolored. Regular manicures can also cost hundreds if you get one every week or even two weeks. However, there have been innovations including UV gel nail polish that allows you to see a manicure-like look for half the price and half the damage to traditional acrylic nails.
It is important that you first understand what UV gel nail polish really is before you do it. The first thing you need to know is that you generally do not use nail extensions or extensions as with traditional acrylics. Gel nail polish is basically very tough nail polish that works to strengthen your own nails rather than build up fake nails. This type of manicure is much cheaper than a traditional manicure for several reasons; The first is that it takes a fraction of the time for a traditional manicure. A gel manicure or shellac manicure takes about half an hour to an hour where a regular manicure can take up to an hour and a half if done properly.
Another reason why this is cheaper is that they do not use as many materials and they last longer than other nail treatments. A gel manicure can last for up to three weeks without any visible signs of wear as opposed to a traditional manicure that begins to show growth in about two weeks. The filling process is also a bit easier than with acrylic. You do not need to build up the nail bed to match the height of the gel manicure, which means that the filling takes half as much time with a gel manicure. In addition to the mentioned advantages, you also have many more options in terms of color and finish with a gel manicure.
Unlike acrylic, the nail polish remover does not affect the structure or integrity of a gel nail; to remove them, you need a special acetone cleaner designed to remove gel nails. Because of this, you can paint gel manicure freely and remove and change polish as often as you choose. In addition, a gel manicure is much easier on your nails and does less damage in both the removal and application process. UV light is used to set the gel rather than using chemicals or other hard materials to help cure acrylic.
A gel manicure can also be called a shellac manicure because you only use the gel policy to set and strengthen the nail as opposed to acrylic. A Shellac manicure or gel manicure is a great option if you are getting a manicure for the first time and want to try something that is only mildly harmful and much cheaper than other options. Most salons have shellac manicure now and you can even buy home kits if you feel you can manage to do this type of manicure yourself.
