So What Is Gel Polish?

Let me start by letting you know what Gel Polish is. It goes by a few brand names out there – Colour Gloss by Artistic Nail Design, GelColor by OPI, Gelish by…Gelish and Shellac by CND to name a few.

We use Colour Gloss and GelColor at Polished Beauty because we think they are the best (we have tried the others and find we get the best results with these 2 brands). Gel Polish is applied in several layers and cured in a UV lamp. It is a similar to nail polish in that it is applied to the nails after a manicure or pedicure. At Polished Beauty it is also available in a huge range of colours.



Give Me The Top 5

1. It Lasts up to 21 days

This is by far the No.1 reason for Gel Polish’s instant success – it lasts up to 21 days! Nail Polish regularly wears off, cracks, dulls or chips off within a day or so. With Gel Polish, you can get your nails done and then forget about them for a few weeks knowing they will be in perfect condition. Gel Polish resists chipping, cracking or peeling a lot more than normal nail polish. You will see some new nail growth at the base of your nail as your nail plate grows out.

2. It dries instantly

Unlike normal polish, Gel Polish is cured in a UV Lamp and dries instantly which means no more smudges as soon as you reach for your keys or purse. You can get your nails done in your lunch break or on the way to pick up the kids. It’s also perfect for the busy business woman to always look Polished.

3. High-Gloss Shine

You’ll be amazed by the high-gloss shine that Gel Polish has. It lasts for as long as the Gel Polish is on your nails – up to 21 days. Nail polish tends to dull quickly, sometimes within the first day or so unless you spend time re-applying a top coat every few days (I’ve got better things to do – don’t you?).

4. Value For Money/Time

Gel Polish is much more economical than normal polish because it lasts so much longer which makes it amazing value for money. A quick visit to the salon and your set for a few weeks, rather than having to come back every few days for a repaint. This saves you time in this fast pace world of today.

5. Assists your nail to grow longer

Because Gel Polish stays on your nail longer it actually helps prevent your nail from breaking easily. Together with regular use of a high-quality cuticle oil, it holds your nail together, reducing the risk of your nail breaking at the free edge – which means longer nails!
