What is Gel Polish?

 

 

When gel nail polish first became popular, women all over the world went crazy over it. The promise of a glossy, chip-free manicure that can last for weeks made it the holy grail of salon services for years. Gel polishes boast megawatt shine and long wear time, but they aren’t exactly ideal for those people who want to frequently switch up polish colors. Apart from being more expensive than traditional polish, constant application and removal of gel polish can damage your nails over time.

 

 

 

Traditional Gel Polish Meets A New Revolution of Gel Polish

 

Today, there is a revolutionary new gel polish on the market – KoKo & Claire Luxury Gel Polish. KoKo & Claire has the same long-lasting wear of gel polishes with the ease of application and removal of a traditional nail polish. It basically aims to offer you the best of both worlds, without sacrificing quality and convenience.

 

 

 

Gel Polish Application

 

Gel polish is applied very much like a traditional nail polish. The main difference between the two is the need to cure it in a LED or UV lamp. As with any other type of nail polish, proper nail plate preparation is essential prior to applying gel polish. 

 

  1. File your nails and push back your cuticles.
  2. Buff your nail plate with a polishing block, then wipe it clean.
  3. Apply the base, two coats of your selected hybrid polish color, and the top coat. It’s important to cure each layer under the lamp before you go over it with another layer of coat.

 

Gel Polish Removal

 

Gel polish can be very difficult to remove on your own. A trip to the salon is sometimes necessary to have it removed as it requires a bit of elbow grease and acetone. You can try to remove it on your own, but DIY removal methods might not be as effective and can even result in severely damaged nail beds if not performed properly. Removing gel polish typically involves buffing the nails to remove the shine and soaking them in a high concentration of acetone. Any remaining polish is then scraped off the nail using a manicure stick. 

 

 

 

Unlike traditional gel polish, Koko & Claire Luxury Gel Nail Lacquers, can be removed without soaking your nails in acetone. Once you’ve buffed off your polish, all you need to do is to soak your nails in hot water for a couple of minutes and gently peel off the gel from your nail bed. If you’re worried about your polish falling off while taking a shower or doing the dishes, fret not! The good news is that KoKo & Claire gel polish is durable and won’t come off that easily when it comes in contact with water. KoKo & Claire also aims to reduce pressure and damage to your nails because there’s no acetone, scraping, and tugging involved in the removal process. 

 

 

 

If you’re the type of person who experiences chipping of your polish within a day, but hate the hassle involved in applying and removing gel polishes or expensive trips to the nail salon, then KoKo & Claire gel polishes are perfect for you. This game-changing nail treatment trend is surely here to stay.
