Nail art is a creative way to paint, decorate, enhance, and embellish the nails.Today Let us See why you need to use Nail Polish along with Gel Nails.
What is Gel Nail?
Gel nails are an acrylic oligamer that must be cured under a UV light to produce the nail coating. True gel nails - often known as ‘hard gel’ are not meant to be temporary, they cannot be soaked off and must be removed by filing.
They are super strong and crystal clear. ‘Soft gel’ nails are able to be soaked off in acetone but aren't as hard and strong as a true hard gel.
True hard gel nails-are only removed by filing them off. Professionals file them to a super thin layer left on the natural nail that will grow off the nail. Hard Gel nails are not a temporary nail, they are a along term commitment.
Why Nail Polish Last Longer on Hard Gel Nails?
The nail polish will naturally last longer on the hard gel because it’s basically plastic. Nail polish doesn’t last too long on natural nails because the natural nail can absorb water which causes the nail polish to lift and chip.
With hard gel it is a non-porous surface so the nail polish will naturally adhere better to it and last longer.
In General the Gel Nails is super smooth so it makes for a great base to any regular nail polish color!
Put a clear base using Nail Gel and cure it, then use Nail polish.
You can use regular nail polish over gel nails as long as the polish color is darker then the gel nails.
The fantastic thing about gel nails (not gel polish) is that it is impervious to solvents so you can change the color as often as you wish
You can get your Nail Gel in a neutral kind of color (e.g. black, nude) and then create a new mani on top with normal nail polish.
Remove that nail polish with non-acetone remover and you still have your intact gel underneath that acts as the perfect base.
The best part is gel nails are very smooth which make it easy to apply nail paint over them.
But if you find any ridges on them, then by applying the clear base; you can cure it.
After that, you can apply your favorite color nail paint on them.
In case you are using gel over nail polish then it gives a great finishing to nails.
