Awesome Tumblr Gel Nails – Gel nail polish is a gel which usually comes in a jar or pot. The gel liquid is painted to the nail in the way that regular nail polish is, but it’s more easy you won’t leave brush strokes and as it’s self levelling. Each coat of polish is treated under a LED lamp for 15 to 60 seconds or a UV lamp for two to three minutes (based on the gloss lamp and brand).
This curing process sets the gel. The polish does not dry until it moves beneath the lamp, therefore any slips are significantly easier to rectify. After curing, the gel polish is totally hard, but may have a layer prepared to bond to the next layer. Additional coats can be applied after each layer is treated.

Gel polish is not bad for your nails. Reports of nail damage from gel gloss can be common but elimination usually causes that — such as if polish is pulled/picked off or nails are scraped during the removal procedure.
To keep nails healthy, it’s a great idea to use cuticle oil into your nails after each removal procedure (this applies to regular nail polish too). Cuticle oil helps to nourish the nail bed and promote strong growth. If you are applying another gel manicure straight off that you don’t apply the cuticle oil until later.
