Gel polish has a composition of acrylic monomers as well as oligomers that bond up together by being placed under UV light. The process itself is known as curing, the liquid gel becomes hard within seconds becoming a highly chemical-resistant coat perfect for a gel manicure.
The gel manicure consists of a service which uses a gel-based glaze system which requires either a UV or LED lamp in order to cure the glaze so it can be locked on to your fingernails. The gel nails last longer when compared to regular. For example, the regular one will chip in about 2-3 days, while the gel will not chip for weeks.
Gel nail polish’s biggest benefit is that it lasts longer compared to regular polish. You can expect gel nails to resist up to four weeks. It won’t chip, break, or peel easily. Dan’s gel is actually very strong.
Gel nail polish alone won’t harm your nails. However, if you bite the polish, you can damage your nails. By peeling it off, you can peel off your original nail too, and that makes it very thin and weak
Yep, once you have applied Dan’s gel color (2 layers), a thin layer of Dan’s Top Coat will need to be applied. Dan’s Top Coat helps protect and seal up the gel manicure as well as make it shine up!
Consider it as if it were liquid acrylic. Both product’s chemical composition varies from brand to brand, and the biggest difference is that gel only dries with direct UV or LED light contact when regular can dry by air.
LED and UV nail lamps both produce UV light wavelengths and function just as well, but UV lamps produce a wider spectrum of light wavelengths, on the other hand, LED lamps emit a more narrow and specific amount of wavelength. All cannot be cured using a LED lamp.
When choosing gels or acrylics nails the type of job you do is an important factor. For example, if you use your hands often and your nails are fragile and thin, you should choose gel nails. If you’re uncertain when choosing gel or acrylic nails our best bet is to consult it with your nail technician for professional advice.
You have to make sure all gel layers are properly cured by the UV/LED lamp. All Layer should be cured by the time suggested, different Gel brands haves different curing time for their products, here in Dan’s Nails our recommended time is 30-60 seconds per layer
It seems that the gel is not completely cured. It can happen if you are applying it excessively thick. If you apply it too heavily, the UV light will not penetrate deep into the layer in order to cure it correctly. Uncured polish causes the top layer to become opaque as well as wiped down with the cleanser.
