First of all, it is easiest to explain just what it is not! Hard gel nails are not soft gel or soak-off gel, gel polish or shellac. It is more similar in type to acrylic nails because you can extend the length of the hard gel nails, which can also be sculpted and shaped, so those coffin nails and stiletto nails are on the menu. This is a great medium if you are looking for the statement nails that the celebrities are wearing. The main difference is that just as with gel nails, hard gel nails need to be cured beneath a UV or LED light. They can be built to suit the wearer’s taste, thin and natural-looking or thicker and ultra-long. The advantages of hard gel nails are that they are lightweight, low odour during application, easy to shape and file and give a high gloss finish. Removing hard gel nails is more difficult as they need to be filed off by a professional nail technician, hard gel nail polish removal should not be a DIY job and you should set aside around 20 minutes for your booking. Repairs can only be done by your nail technician as well. Infills are required every 2 to 3 weeks.

Many clients with a busy lifestyle like to combine their regular beauty updates at the same time and often with the same salon. Beauty salons are often able to attend to your hair and your nails at the same venue, or check out a nail and brow bar and come out looking ultra glamourous! The larger salons and those situated at one of the Manchester spas are often able to answer several of your beauty requests, giving you the chance to take advantage of a beauty package all on one afternoon and ultimately saving you not only time, but also money. PamperTree frequently has great offers in Manchester for any of the services they promote for Manchester hairdressers, massage in Manchester, lashes and brows and many other health and beauty venues delivering their luxurious services. Mobile nails services can also be found here, so if you prefer to relax at home to get your hard gel nails done you can book an appointment with a mobile technician; this is a service that is extremely popular with people who live in some of the rural areas of Greater Manchester, or those who are more mature.

One of the advantages that hard gel nails offers, is that this type of nail enhancement has no adverse effects when the wearer is pregnant. There is no definitive evidence that acrylic nails are harmful during pregnancy, but many take the option of hard gel at this important stage of their lives and choose hard gel as their nail treatment of choice. One firm reason for many pregnant women is the lower odour, as they can be particularly sensitive to smells and the fumes from acrylic nails can be unbearable. The high gloss finish and quality of hard gel nails is equal to that of acrylic.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Hard Gel Nails in Manchester

What are gel nails?

When you opt for a gel manicure, the manicurist will apply gel polish on the fingernails after shaping the nails and nourishing the cuticles. She will apply three coats of gel polish and cure each coat of gel polish using UV or LED light. But manicurists allow you to choose from soft gel nails or hard gel nails when you opt for a gel manicure. Unlike soft gel, the hard gel adds length to your natural nails. You also have the option to stylize the hard gel nails through shaping and sculpting.

How do soft gel nails differ from hard gel nails?

Both soft gel and hard gel are applied and cured in a similar way. But hard gel polish has a thicker consistency than soft gel polish. You should opt for soft gel nails to make your natural nails appear stronger and sturdier. On the other hand, you can add both strength and length to your nails by getting a hard gel manicure. In addition to appearing natural, hard gel nails remain shiny for about three weeks. But you must protect your natural nails by removing both types of gel nails by a manicurist.
 

How do hard gel nails differ from acrylic nails?

You can add length to your natural nails by getting either an acrylic nail manicure or hard gel manicure. While performing acrylic nails, the manicurist creates artificial nails by combining liquid polymer and powder monomer. Also, she will harden the acrylic nails by air drying. But the manicurist applies hard gel on the fingers using a brush and cures the hard gel polish using either UV or LED light. Hard gel nails appear more natural than acrylic nails. Also, they remain stylish without requiring specific or regular maintenance.

How long do hard gel nails last?

The hard gel nails last for about three weeks. But you must maintain the gel nails properly to prevent bacterial problems. Also, you need to ensure that the artificial nails are removed by an experienced manicure to keep the health and appearance of your natural nails intact.

How can I make the hard gel nails last longer?

The hard gel nails will remain natural and stylish for about three weeks. But the look and feel of the artificial nails will deteriorate with the growth of your natural nails. You can keep the natural look and style of hard gel nails intact by getting infills every two weeks. While infilling the gel nails, the manicurist will cover the gap between the gel nails and nail cuticles.

How to protect my natural nails while getting a hard gel manicure?

Both soft gel polish and hard gel polish impacts the health of your natural nails. You must protect your natural nails by focusing on some simple things to keep your natural nails safe while getting a hard gel manicure.

  • Choose an experienced manicurist
  • Ask the manicurist to set the hard gels using LED light
  • Maintain the hard gels properly
  • Get the hard gel nails removed by a manicurist
