The Benefits Of Gel Nails

Having beautifully manicured nails can help you look and feel your best, giving you the confidence you need to live your life to the fullest. Even if you weren’t born with strong, perfectly formed nails, today’s artificial nails are practically indiscernible from real nails and can give you the look of long, healthy nails.

There are two main types of artificial nails that you can choose from — gel nails or acrylic nails. When deciding between the two you should consider factors such as how easy they are to apply, how long they last, what kind of upkeep they need and how natural they look.

Better Smell with Gel Nails

 
One of the main advantages that gel nails offer over their acrylic counterparts is that they don’t have any odor. Acrylic nails, on the other hand, give off a strong odor while they are being applied. Many people find this smell intolerable. If you are sensitive to strong aromas, you may find that gel is a better option for you.

The gel application process starts by choosing whether you want full nails or tips. As you might imagine, full nails are applied over your entire nail, while tips are applied just to the end of your nail to add length.

Ultraviolet Light

 
Next, the false nails are applied and the gel is cured using a special ultraviolet light. The light hardens the gel, making it extremely durable so it can stand up to the wear and tear of everyday life.

It is important to make sure that the gel is fully cured before you leave your manicurist. Otherwise you run the risk of having your nails break or fall off.

Multiple Thin Coats

 
Additionally, you need to be sure that the proper amount of gel is used during the application process. It is better to apply multiple thin coats of gel rather than one thick coat since thick applications of gel are difficult to cure. Again, improper curing can lead to various problems with your manicure including breaking or tearing.

If you have thin, brittle or weak nails that break easily, gel nails are a fantastic way to get the look of long, beautiful nails. Strong and durable, these nails can last for weeks, making them a smart investment. Your hands say a lot about who you are. By keeping them well-manicured, you can give a great first impression, letting others know that you care about your appearance.
