Consumer Gel manicures- DIY vs salon Gel manicures- DIY vs salon
Traditional nail polish is rapidly being replaced by high-gloss, longer lasting gel formulas. Gel manicures are popular because they can last as long as 3 weeks. The polish is hardened onto the nail with ultra violet light. But gel polish at the salon is pricey- ranging from $25 - $35. So more and more manufacturers are offering gel polishes you can buy at the store. They give you the same high gloss finish for a fraction of the cost- without the ultra violet exposure you get at the salon.
