Gel nails are a form of artificial nail application. Gel can be applied directly to the nail bed or used with a nail tip to extend the length of the nail. Once the gel is applied to the nail, it is then cured under a special UV light to harden the gel. When using tips to extend nail length, the tip is glued to the nail, then the gel is applied over the nail and cured. Without a tip, the gel is applied directly to the nail and cured. This method is great for strengthening your natural nail, while allowing your nails to grow.
Benefits of gel nails:
The application method and products are odorless.
Gel nails are very natural looking and still look like a natural nail without nail polish.
As with all artificial nails, nail polish has long lasting staying power.
