I have visited many salons in and around the area to view what they are calling Gel Nails. Many NSS (Non-Standard) salons today are selling a service called Powder-Gel. While there is a product out there by Le-Chat, called Powder Gel, this is not a true authentic gel nail service. This is in fact another form of Acrylic Nails!
Gel Nails are NEVER a powder sprinkled over your nail bed, and then a resin, or UV top coat applied. Furthermore, if your nail tech is dipping her brush in liquid and then the powder your still getting acrylic nails. You know your getting a true gel nail service when your nail professional applies a 3 – 4 step application of a gel. Each thin layer is UV Cured for 2 min. or up to 30 sec in a LED Light.
