Gel nails look good. They protect your nails, and they won't chip or scratch. Gel nails are durable and should last at least two weeks before nail growth makes it necessary to redo them. Whilst most of us love to show off beautifully manicured nails, regular salon visits can be costly and time-consuming so why not do your nails at home? All you need is the best LED nail lamps that you can afford, the gel nail kit and cleaning alcohol.
Self-application of gel nails is not difficult, and it is fun, an outward expression of your creativity. In recent years the patterns and colors for gel nails have become increasingly more inventive.
Gel nails, unlike other nail coatings, must be cured using either a UV lamp or an LED lamp. The gel is an epoxy that contains photo-initiators (1) which require light exposure to activate and harden.
