Minx Manicure Alternative: Have You Tried Gel Nails
Zelena: Nail Gels. A hot celebrity nail trend has surfaced to give Minx nails a run for its money. From J.Lo to Beckham, celebrities have fully embraced this nail phoneme.
I'm at the Bellacures Salon to show you all the stuffs that are involved so you can decide whether this trend is really worth all the hype. This gel manicure has doubled the prize and doubled the time. Let’s see if it is really worth it.
Samira: The Bellacure manicure will last about one and half weeks to three weeks depending on how well the gel at here is to your natural nail.
The first step is a basic manicure. We’re going to be filing and shaping your nails and cutting back your cuticles and propping them for the gel. Now that the basic manicure is completed, the next step is to apply the gel with a brush.
The gel manicure is better than a regular manicure because it keeps a polish on a little bit longer than a regular manicure and the gel layer is protecting them from your daily activities. Now, we’re going to put your hand into the UV Light to set for two to five minutes. Now that the gel is set, we’re going to clean your nails and then we’re going to apply regular polish with a top coat to top it off.
Zelena: How do you get these nail gels off?
Samira: So, it’s called the soak-off process. We individually wrap each nail with a soak-off solution on a piece of cotton and wrap it in foil so that your entire hand is not soaking in a bowl of soak-off solution. And it makes the gel kind of gluey and gummy so that it able to just kind of chip away out of it without ruining the natural nail. So, it’s less dehydrating and it minimizes the harshness. And I also recommend every person moisturizes after the treatment.
Zelena: Can I take this off at home?
Samira: You absolutely can. If you’re in the gym, we recommend getting 100’% acetone to soak it off, not nail polisher remover and the best way is to go back to your manicurist.
Zelena: So, we’re all finished and I love it. It looks like a normal manicure except a tiny bit thicker but it just feels like a protective coat and I love the color. I would definitely recommend this nail gel treatment. It cost more and it tastes a little more time but it’s worth it for girls on the go like me. But I also have a noted caution, it does easy if you’re lighting a tanning salon so you should consider this from booking your next appointment.
I’m Zelena. Thanks for watching BellaTV. Stay beautiful.
