Why Pick Gel Nail Polish Over Regular Nail Polish?

In Blog

You might be wondering why you should pick gel nail polish over regular nail polish. There are positives and negatives to both sides, but overall the positives for Gel Nail Polish far outweigh the negatives.

So let’s start with the positives.

Gel Nail Polish and Gel Nail Polish Kits save you money. While it may seem like a big cost up front, it’s actually an investment. A Gelous Gel Nail Polish Pack costs the same as 2-3 professional salon manicures and comes with everything you need to create salon quality gel manicures at home. Gelous Gel Nail Polishes themselves cost around the same as big polish brands such as Essie and OPI, so you can add extra polish colours to your collection without breaking the bank. 

Another reason Gelous Gel Nail Polish is cost effective is longevity. Our Gel Nail Polish lasts up to 2 weeks, whereas regular nail polish only lasts 2-3 days. Longevity is a huge bonus, not just for cost, but also for a busy lifestyle. You get to keep up with your hectic life and not have to worry about your manicure chipping. Life isn’t perfect, but your mani can be!

We can't go past the benefit of how quickly Gel Nail Polish dries. Gel Nail Polish dries much faster than regular polish - once you've cured your nails under the Gel Nail Lamp, you’re ready to go. You can get on with your day and not have to worry about smudging your nails. 

Are there any negatives to Gel Nail Polish?

While all Gel Nail Lamps used for gel manicures expose you to small amounts of UV rays, an easy fix for this is remembering to apply sunscreen to your hands 15-30 minutes before you begin applying your Gel Nail Polish. While this adds another step, it’s a small price to pay for beautifully manicured hands and serves as a little reminder to wear sunscreen all over your body on the daily.

Another potential negative is that it is more time consuming to remove than regular nail polish, but not to worry gals - we have all the tools you need and instructions to help you along! Pop on our Gel Nail Polish Removal Clips and an episode of your favourite show and your nail polish will be off in no time. 

Overall, Gel Nail Polish provides a long lasting manicure and choosing to do it at home saves you money and time. So get your Gelous Pack together and do a little self care - you deserve it!
