Gel nail polish has become the rage for a few years now. And why should it not be right? It gives that extra gloss, does not chip off easily (for weeks), looks soo elegant & surely grabs the eye of the beholder.

So what is this gel nail polish? Where can you get it done? This blog gives you a complete guide about the Gel Nail & how it's done in Salon Nayana.

What Are Gel Nails?

A gel nail polish is a gel-based polish for the nails that need a UV or LED light to lock in. It is durable & can last up to 3 weeks.

Gel nail paints aren't bad for your nails. The only thing to take care about is that it should be done professionally, taken good care of & removed very carefully.


Do Gel Nails Dry Quickly?

Gel nail polish is easy to dry since it is not naturally dried. But the nails are placed under the UV or LED light for about 30 seconds to dry.

Are Gel Nails Chip Free?

Due to its formula, the gel nail polish is resistant to wearing off quickly. It doesn't chip away, nor does it smudge. Also, gel polish is thicker than regular nail paints.


How long do Gel Nails Last?

Gel nail polish lasts for about 2-3 weeks. The color stays bright & shiny without wearing out for quite a long time. It also depends on how you treat it & the kind of care you take.

How are Gel Nails Applied?

The nail is cut in the preferred shape. The cuticles are trimmed & cleaned. Then a base coat is applied, followed by the gel nail paint. It is then kept under the UV or LED light for about 30 sec & is finished by putting a topcoat.


Are gel nails Easy to Apply?

Gel nail polish is applied directly to your natural nail. There is no need to use an extension or fake nails, making the polish application easy & fuss-free. This doesn't cause any damage to your skin or nail either, nor does it demand any extra care & maintenance.


How much do Gel Nails Cost?

Typically a gel polish costs around INR 1200 onwards. The rate goes up depending on your choice of design & color you choose.

Do you need UV Light for Gel Nails?

Whatever one uses at the salon doesn't make a big deal. Both do the job perfectly. But in terms of safety, LED is less harmful & a better option than using UV rays frequently. Also, it depends on the gel nail you are using - some require a particular way of drying it up. Also, if you plan to get gel polish regularly, the safer option would be to consider an LED light.


What protection is needed for Gel Nails?

Protecting your skin beforehand is always a good idea, especially if you love doing gel nails regularly. You can apply lots of SPF before getting the SUV rays to nail drying. Also, you can opt for LED instead of UV light. Also, you can choose to wear special gel manicure gloves to protect the skin around your nails.


Are Gel Nails Easy to Remove?

It can be easily removed by going to a salon & getting it removed by a professional. It won't even cause any harm. Don't try to do it yourself unless you are pretty aware of the process & have enough patience. Removing it at home is too easy to follow. By soaking the nails in 100% acetone for at least 7-10 minutes.


What Are the Side Effects of Gel Nails?

Gel paint can get tough on your nails & skin. It may cause cracking and peeling of the skin. Using UV/LED rays can increase the risk of skin aging & risk of skin cancer too.

If you have experienced these events anytime in your life - your nail paint smudged an hour after application, or chipped the day before your big event, or made you feel frustrated for it took hours to dry. Then gel nail paint is for you.
