Gel Nails - What are they?

What are gel nails?

Gel polish, nail polish, Breathable polish… It all gets a bit confusing but don’t worry, we’re here to answer that burning question;

What are gel nails?       

In short, gel polish results in a longer lasting manicure compared to traditional nail polish and breathable polish. In order to last longer, gel polish uses photo initiators in LED and UV nail lamps to set and dry the polish for a hard-wearing finish. 

Our 100% gel, vitamin infused gel formula promotes healthy nails with a superior shine.
