What are PolyGel Nails?

Polygel by Gelish is a cross between acrylic and hard gel. The liquid used to sculpt PolyGel is called Slip, a material that makes it easy to shape which allows us to create lots of designs. It is cured or set under an LED or UV lamp and gives long-lasting results.

What’s the difference between PolyGel Nails and Acrylic Nails?

PolyGel takes the best qualities of liquid acrylics, powder acrylics and LED hard gels. Unlike hard gel, PolyGel is not self-leveling, but stays where you place it. Unlike acrylic, it doesn’t harden until it’s cured in an LED or UV lamp. PolyGel is also more flexible than acrylic, stronger than hard gel, and lighter than both, so you'll hardly notice that you’re wearing it!

What are Bio Sculpture Gel Nails?

Bio Sculpture Gel is a hard gel that is applied onto a natural nail, tip or gel extension. Bio Sculpture Gel is then cured or set under a UV /LED lamp to give a long-lasting, high shine finish. Your nails are protected underneath the gel, causing zero damage.

What are acrylic nails?

Acrylic nails are a type of artificial nail that is stuck to your natural nail. Very often the surface of your natural nail is lightly filed to ensure that the acrylic nail adheres to it. Acrylic nails can last for several months, with care.

What are gel nails? What are Shellac nails?
