What is a gel nail polish application?
The gel nail polish is an acrylic-based gel nail varnish that is applied to the nails. Once the gel is applied, the nails are placed under a UV lamp and the gel hardens, creating a solid and compact layer on top of the nails.
Thanks to gel polish, the manicure lasts much longer than a classic nail polish application and the nails look natural, shiny, and healthy.
A gel nail polish application is perfect for those who are looking for a long lasting manicure with a natural look. The gel polish is applied like a regular nail polish, but it is cured under a UV lamp, which hardens the gel and creates a solid, compact layer on top of the nails.
Practical and resistant, gel nail polish is ideal for maintaining elegant nails over a long period of time. Even if your hands are very busy in the context of your professional activity!
How much does it cost to apply a gel nail polish?
Wecasa offers gel nail application at home with an experienced mobile beautician.
The price for applying a gel polish at home with Wecasa is £29.90.
Why choose a gel nail polish over a traditional nail polish?
Gel polish is stronger than its cousin, classic nail polish, so it lasts much longer.
It is more resistant to water, scratches, rubbing... In short, anything that can damage our pretty manicured hands. You can count on 2 to 3 weeks of wear for this type of manicure.
Gel polish manicure at home: How does it work?
The application of a gel nail polish at home is very similar to the application of a classic nail polish - the only difference lies in the products used and the use of the famous UV lamp to dry your varnish.
Here is the procedure for applying your gel manicure:
- A base coat is applied to the nails, which will protect your nail and limit its breakage
- A semi-permanent gel polish is applied to the nails: there are hundreds of different colors, the choice is yours!
- At the end, a layer of top coat is applied to protect the colored varnish.
Between each step, the hand is passed under the UV lamp to allow the product to dry. Note that two coats of varnish are usually applied. This entire process will usually take between 45-60 minutes.
Gel nail polish can be applied to many different types of manicures: on natural nails, on acrylic nails and gel nail extensions, or even on the toes!
