Gel polish is a type of nail polish that is cured under a UV or LED lamp to create a durable, long-lasting manicure. It is different from traditional nail polish in that it requires a special light to dry and harden, rather than simply air-drying like traditional nail polish.

Gel polish is applied in thin layers, just like traditional nail polish, and each layer is cured under the UV or LED lamp for a few seconds to dry it quickly. Once the final layer is cured, the nails are dry to the touch and ready to go. Gel polish provides a high-shine finish and is available in a variety of colors and finishes, from matte to metallic.

One of the main benefits of gel polish is that it is very durable and long-lasting, typically lasting for two to three weeks without chipping or peeling. This makes it a popular choice for those who want a low-maintenance manicure that can withstand everyday wear and tear.

However, it is important to note that the curing process and chemicals used in gel polish can be harsh on the natural nails, and improper application or removal can lead to damage or weakening of the nails. It is important to have gel polish applied and removed by a licensed nail technician to ensure proper application and avoid damage to the natural nails.
