I currently provide 2 brands of Gel Polish:
known as ‘The original brush-in-bottle, high-shine gel nail polish.’ Gelish® Soak-Off Gel Polish applies like polish and cures in a LED lamp in 30 seconds, Gelish stays on nails for up to 3 weeks with no chipping or peeling, and soaks completely off in only 15 minutes.
PRIMA hypoallergenic gel polishes are soak-off gel polishes with a one colour coat application, it produces thin looking nails, no shrinkage or wrinkling, HEMA-free and hypoallergenic, no yellowing or fading, rich chip-free colours for up to 4 weeks, products developed and manufactured by Iryna Giblett in Sweden using low allergy risk ingredients wherever possible to protect our customer’s health. They are one of the few manufacturers who take this responsibility extremely seriously and have made significant investments to develop a wide range of hypoallergenic products. In addition, only the highest quality ingredients sourced from European and American suppliers are used and they insist on providing me with a free lamp to ensure their products are cured correctly and safely.
- You should treat your nails like jewels not tools!
- Gloves should be worn when undertaking domestic chores involving chemicals/detergents and extreme hardwork.
- A nail oil needs to be applied twice daily to stop the natural nail becoming dry.
Both branded Gels are applied to a very lightly buffed nail surface, this will not damage or harm the nails at all, subsequent treatments are only buffed on regrowth. At removal the gel lifts naturally away from the nails. Both supply a PH Bond, which brings the PH of the nail to neutral, they contain properties that adhere to the Keratin in the natural nail allowing them to bond whilst working with rather than against the natural nails.
The Lamps: Both brands cure under the LED light for a maximum of 60 seconds per coat.
Colour choice: GELISH! have a total of 200+ colours ranging from dark to light, block to shimmers and glitters and plenty more. Nearly all the colours are fashionable and trendy and so far I've failed to come across any I dislike.
IKON.IQ have more than 100 colours, with new colours coming out each season.
