Many times we buy nail polish off the shelf without checking to see what type we have chosen and sometimes we are disappointed because they don’t dry out on time or are not as smooth as we expect them to be, some products even get chipped almost immediately. Well know this, all nail polish have special formulas that make them distinct and so we have to pay close attention to the labels.
There is so much hype about the nail gel products, brands have gone as far as adding gel to the names of their products to differentiate the new products from the traditional ones, now we have products ranging from gel polish hybrid (the new invention), gel effect, soak off gel, gel polish, UV gel etc. The CND Shellac product launched this frenzy, the Questions in our minds still remain What are gels? What do they do? How effective are they? whats the difference between a gel product and the traditional nail polish?
GEL HYBRID POLISH
The CND Shellac Hybrid Nail Polish
UV-ACTIVATED TOP COATS
This nail products works on top the normal nail polish, they dry easily and don’t require UV exposure or Led lamps. They can be referred to as an off-shoot of gel hybrid polish because they dry out very fast.
GEL EFFECT POLISH AND TREATMENTS
This products do not contain any gel in them but they promise gel-like wear and shine. This formula has a thick self leveling formula and they promise the glossy shinny look that normal gel nail polish have. an example is the Dior gel shine, Avon gel finish etc
UV SOAK-OFF GEL
Soak-off gel were created as an alternative to the hard colored gel that require a long removal process and buffing. This products come in small pots and they are applied with special brushes with a uv light to dry it out. This type of nail polish is mainly used by professionals.[yop_poll id=”327″]
