The Truth About Fake Nails: A blog about the pros and cons of gel nails.

If you love getting a gel manicure but are not sure if it is actually good for your nails, here is everything you need to know! When I say that I have been getting gel manicures since I was 10, I am not lying. I was so into them because they were the only manicure that would last more than a week without chipping, especially with how much I was washing my hands at school and sports practice. Then, when I got older and became a lifeguard, my nails were constantly exposed to chlorine which made them even more prone to chipping.

Gel manicures are exactly what they sound like; gel is applied to the nail and then cured (dried) under a UV light. There are two types of gel that can be applied, hard gels and soft gels. Hard gels are thicker and used to build up the nail before applying polish or as a tip overlay if you have short nails. Soft gels, also known as “shellac” are super thin and used solely as a polish to apply over your natural nail. These are the types of gel that you see in most salons such as OPI and

You can find a lot of information online about the pros and cons of gel nails. But it is not always unbiased information. This article will have no bias, and I will tell you the truth about gel nails.

Gel nails are a different type of manicure than acrylic nails. Gel nails are a type of nail that looks shinier than acrylics, but also look more natural. The gels may chip after awhile, but they do not break like acrylics do.

Gel nails do not need a UV light to dry them like some acrylics do. They dry in regular light or the sun. They are easier to remove, and there is less damage to your nails when you remove them than with fake nails.

Gel nails cost more than other types of fake nails, but they last longer than most other types of fake nails, too. They are not as strong as acrylics, but they are stronger than typical fake fingernails and they last longer than most other types of fake fingernails do.

So, you want a gel manicure, but you don’t know what your options are. You’ve heard that fake nails are bad for your nails, but you want to try them anyway. Or maybe you’ve tried them in the past, but have found them to be too expensive or difficult to maintain.

What do you do? In this article I’ll go over the pros and cons of getting gel nails and give you some tips on how to choose the best salon for your manicure needs.

First off, it’s important to know that not all gel nail salons are created equal. There are many different types of gel manicures out there, and each one has its pros and cons. Some salons offer a basic service where they apply a thin layer of gel over your natural nail bed and then apply a top coat of regular polish. Others offer more advanced services like sculpting with acrylics or adding decorations like rhinestones and glitter.

I love gel manicures. They last so long and look so pretty!

But I’ve been told many times that they can be bad for your nails. Gel nail polish is the new hot trend in beauty, but what’s the real deal? Are gel manicures damaging?

I’ll lay out the facts and you can decide for yourself!

The manicure starts off with a base coat, two coats of colour and a top coat. All of these layers are cured under an LED light after every coat. After that is finished, there is one more step: cuticle oil is applied to your nails to moisturize them. Then you’re good to go!

So what makes it different from a regular manicure? A gel manicure uses a gel-based nail polish instead of a traditional formula. The result is incredible shine and long-lasting colour that won’t chip or peel for up to three weeks. (!!!”)

Gel manicures have proved to be a popular nail trend. Gel nails are known for the long lasting paint job that can last weeks without chipping. The gel lasts longer than normal nail polish because it is cured by UV light, which makes the gel harden and set. This can be very convenient for people who don’t have time to get their nails done every couple of weeks. The less trips you have to make to your nail technician, the better. However, an increasing number of women are experiencing the damaging side effects that come with getting a gel manicure.

The major downside of these popular nail treatments is how they attribute to the thinning and weakening of the natural nails. The thinning of the nails is caused by a lack of moisture and oil in the nails after they have been removed from their hard shell that has been protecting them for weeks on end. Nail technicians use acetone as a solution to remove the hard shell from your hands, which also removes all of the oils and moisture from your hands and nails as well.

A common misconception when it comes to gel manicures is that the process is completely safe if you apply a coat of nail strengthener under your gel coatings and then reapply it over top before taking it off

Having a gel manicure is like getting a full-on spa treatment for your nails. It is supposed to last longer than the normal manicures, two weeks compared to a few days.

Gel manicures are often preferred because of their durability and how long it lasts. The gel polish is placed onto the nail under an ultraviolet light (UV) which hardens the material and acts as glue, also adding to its longevity.

The process is actually quite simple: you start by having your nails filed and shaped, buffed to remove ridges, and then cuticles are pushed back. A base coat is applied and then placed under the UV lamp to dry. Then, the actual color coat is applied and cured again under the lamp. Once that dries, a top coat or sealer is applied and dried under the UV lamp one last time.

However, there are certain precautions you should take before getting a gel manicure done. You should make sure that it is being done at a reputable salon with clean instruments because if not, you have an increased risk of infection with the possibility of developing fungi or bacteria that can cause disease.

Also, there have been recent warnings about overexposure to UV light in nail salons which can lead to melanoma
