Hard gel is a type of nail enhancement system that is used to add length and strength to natural nails. It is a type of gel that is cured or dried under a UV or LED lamp to create a hard, durable finish.
Hard gel is similar to other types of nail enhancements, such as acrylic nails, but it is typically considered to be more durable and longer-lasting. It is applied in layers, similar to traditional nail polish or other types of gel, and each layer is cured under a UV or LED lamp for a few seconds to dry it quickly.
Once the final layer is cured, the hard gel creates a strong, durable finish that can last for several weeks without chipping or peeling. It is available in a variety of colors and finishes, from clear to opaque and shimmering, which allows for a wide range of nail art designs and customization options.
One of the benefits of hard gel is that it can be used to create a variety of nail shapes and lengths, from short and natural to long and sculpted. It can also be used to add strength and protection to natural nails, which can be especially beneficial for those with weak or brittle nails.
It’s important to note that hard gel should be applied and removed by a licensed nail technician, as improper application or removal can lead to damage to the natural nails. Additionally, it’s important to take breaks between nail enhancements to allow the natural nails to breathe and recover.
