Gel Polish is a revolutionary light-cured formula that lasts at least 14 days.  It is applied in minutes either under a UV lamp or LED light (dependent on System).  It has the ease of polish but the strength of Gel and can be soaked off in about 10 minutes and comes a variety of colours.


Benefits to Client:-

  • No damage to the natural nail as there is no filing required
  • Easy application - less time client has to allow for appointment
  • Easy removal - can be removed in 10 minutes (dependant on system used) with removal wraps so no harsh filing to natural nails.
  • Will stay looking good with a high shine for at least 14 days
  • Product is dry immediately after service so there is no risk of client smudging/damaging polish
  • There is little to no filing with Gel applications.  Great for people who can't stand the filing motion when applying artificial nails

Benefits to Therapist:-

  • Faster service time so opportunity to increase income potential
  • No filing involved with removal so less work for therapist
