Frequently Asked Questions about Gel Manicure
If you’ve never used a gel manicure before, you may have a few questions on the topic. Indeed, we hear everything and anything about it, so it’s time to disentangle the truth from the false.
Does the gel manicure damage the nails?
The answer is no in the majority of cases.
BUT IF YOU HAVE ALREADY FRAGILE NAILS THAT DON’T PRODUCE ENOUGH SEBUM, THEY MAY BE A LITTLE MORE FRAGILE AFTER A GEL MANICURE.
Indeed, the manicurist will dry the nail so that the gel polish adheres well. If your nails do not produce enough sebum, they will necessarily be weakened. On the other hand, if you have healthy, well hydrated and healthy nails, the gel manicure will not damage your nails.
Next, you should know that in the majority of cases, it is not the manicure itself that damages natural nails, but rather the way it is removed. If the varnish starts to flake off, don’t scratch or try to peel it off. It is in these actions that you risk damaging your nails.
THE BEST IS TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT AT YOUR MANICUROUS TO MAKE A NEW ONE, OR THEN REMOVE IT ENTIRELY WITH THE RIGHT METHOD.
Can gel manicure cause fungus?
Yes and no, because it takes into account how your gel manicure was performed. Do you know what a mushroom is? It is characterized by a change in color of the nail (brown, yellow or white) or with small holes on the surface or a peeling of the skin under the nail.
In short, it’s not the gel itself that creates the fungus, it’s the way you care for your nails. For example, if your nail polish starts to peel, make sure there is no water left after washing your hands to avoid creating moisture between the natural nail and the polish.
Does the Gel manicure prevent nails from growing?
Absolutely not ! Let’s take an example, when you dye your hair, does it stop growing? No ? Well, it’s the same with the nails. You can notice it 2 weeks after application, you start to see the start of a new nail that spoils the beauty of your gel manicure.
Furthermore, some professional nail supplies will help you to have beautiful nails.
