Gel nail polish is a special varnish formula that is cured under ultraviolet lamps. Advocates assert that the gel formulas last at least two weeks without chipping, making them much more practical than regular manicures. Similarly, the gels are thought to be gentler than other overlays, such as false tips and acrylics, which helps maintain strong and healthy natural nails. Most salons charge significantly more for gel polish applications, however, and many clients also pay to have the treatment removed.
A professional manicurist is usually required to apply gel nail polish, for a few reasons. The special gels are typically only available for purchase by salons or licensed nail technicians, and each layer of polish must be cured underneath an ultraviolet lamp to ensure that the manicure develops its defining hardness and durability. The actual application is far less complex than the application of acrylic nails, however, and the polish is painted on the nail with a small brush much like traditional varnish. Both the polish and small versions of the UV lamps have become available in some consumer stores in recent years, although they can be expensive.
