Gel manicures have been around for some time now. And “At Home Gel Polish” has also been available to savvy customers for awhile as well.
The reasons that I love using gel color/lacquer/polish are two fold.
First, it lasts for a long long time, compared to regular lacquer (yes, you have to apply it properly!) and secondly, if you are a lover of nail art, it is like a little gift from the nail art gods.
Once you apply gel color/polish/lacquer it is almost indelible. The shine last and last.
So, when you are doing nail art, and you need to change it (for what ever reason) it will be the same as before you applied the art.
Here is the example.
Nails with art (Day 31 of Nails Magazine nail art challenge was favorite animal!)
Removing the nail art using every day polish remover.
And left behind, is the same beautiful color I started with!
Heck, you could go from day time “on the job nails” to sassy “night out with the gals” or classy “romantic dinner” with your significant other AND then back to work nails with a simple swipe of the polish remover!
Spread the word to your clients all you nail techs! It could bring you some extra cash and extra happiness to your clients!!!
There are many at home companies. And without prejudice, here are a few.
GelShine by OPI for Sephora
Lacqit “One step, No wipe” at home system (www.lacqit.com)
and Red Carpet Manicure.
Give your customers that edge or give yourself the opportunity to change your looks on a dime. Gel colors/lacquers/polishes are so fast now. Most cure in 30 second intervals and some have “no wipe” technology!!!
