Manicures are one of the most important parts of a woman’s regular beauty routine. Most of the women I know would say that having too many manicures can damage their nails. Women would typically complain that their nails are weak, brittle and yellowish after weeks of having nail polish applied. Manicures can cost more than hundreds of dollars for me because I always have weekly sessions in a nail salon. Aside from the cost, I also find it time-consuming because I need to fit in a nail salon session on my weekly schedule.
Nowadays, there have been some new nail innovations that can protect our nails, unlike the traditional acrylic nail polishes. One of my girlfriends introduced me to Svensson Nail Polish, a new innovation that uses gel to protect the nails while keeping them nice and pretty. Gel nail polish can help strengthen brittle nails plus you don’t have to use artificial nails to achieve those long, shiny and elegant nails. Gel nail polish is also less time consuming than the traditional type. It will only take 30 minutes to complete your nails unlike traditional polish that can take an hour or two for just one single session.
Another good reason for using gel nail polish is the cost, because it usually lasts longer than any other nail polish. A traditional nail polish may last only a week for some women while a gel nail polish can last up to three weeks with no signs of damage and tear. And what excites me are the different options when it comes to colour and finish that’s available in the Svensson polish range. The colours and finishes are really sleek looking and my hands always look clean with them. I often use nail polish enhancers and shiny coats to make them look elegant, but with gel nail polish I get the nail look that I want with just a single polish!
Cleaning is also easy because they come with a special remover designed to remove the gel polish without damaging your nails. One can easily apply and remove the gel nail polish as frequently as needed. And to set the gel, UV light is used rather than the usual hardening chemicals to set acrylic nail polishes. The UV light also reduces the drying time we usually spend under traditional nail polish lamps. UV lights are also safe for your nails compared to the lamps used in nail salons.
If you are getting a manicure for the first time, gel nail polish is a great option because it will definitely give you damage-free nails – and less expensive too. Buying your own gel nail polish kit to apply at home is the most economical option. The home kits come with all the accessories you need to get started.
