What is Gel Manicure?

Home » News » What is Gel Manicure?

A gel manicure is a type of manicure that uses gel to bind the synthetic fingernails to the natural nails. Unlike Acrylic nails, the other option for manicures, gel nails are stronger and less likely to chip. Gel can also be applied over natural nails to keep them healthy and long that is called gel nail overlay. A gel manicure is often preferred over an acrylic one because gel nails are odorless.


Gel nails do not consists of the same acid that acrylics do; they are healthier and more natural. Additionally, a gel manicure tends to look more flexible and bond naturally to the real nail. The fingernails will stay shiny and last longer than acrylic nails. During a gel manicure, the gel is applied to the nail and cured under an ultraviolet light. The gel is durable and adheres easily to fingernails.

The Removal

Gel nails are removed by filing them off with some special techniques. When these nail come off,  the real nails are not damaged like when acrylic nails are taken off. Natural nails continue to grow under the gel, and a gel manicure can improve the health of natural nails.

Natural Nail Protection

The gel acts as a shield against anything  that might weaken or damage them, such as moisture or other elements. After this type of manicure, natural nails are stronger and more durable, as long as they are maintained properly before the manicure.

The Cost

A gel nail manicure costs slightly more than an acrylic manicure, however the benefits far out weight the cost when you consider that gel-nails last longer, up-to 4 weeks, and promote healthy nails. Get your Gel-Nails today at Mich & Myl Nails Philippines Nail Salon
