Are gel nails safe?
Of course! With proper application and removal, gel nail polish can be non-damaging and provide long-lasting color and shine. For instance, the OPI Gel Color application includes a base coat, two layers of gel nail polish, and a topcoat. Your nails should also be treated with NAS 99 Cleaning Solution by OPI, then rehydrated with the ProSpa Moisture Whip and ProSpa Nail & cuticle Oil.
Can gel nails be cured without a UV light?
During the application process, it is also imperative that your manicurist uses an LED lamp with a timer. This device is critical to ensuring you obtain a durable, long-lasting gel manicure!
Knowledge is power - when quality gel nail polish products are applied properly, you will take home beautiful nails that will grow long and strong.
Can I combine gel nail polishes with regular polishes? Although some salons may mix and match, we always recommend asking for the full OPI GelColor system from top to base to ensure optimal application!
