Everything You Need to Know About Gel Nails

Gel is an acrylate that is suspended in its monomer state, thus it is a gelatinous consistency before curing. Gel is called gel because it is a gel – think of the consistency of hair gel in a potted container or bottle. All gels are cured in a lamp that emits UV light, whether it contains florescent bulbs or LED bulbs. There are two kinds of gel used for enhancement services: “hard” and “soft” gels. Those names refer to the ability to break those gels down with a solvent, so a hard gel is solvent-resistant where a soft gel is not. Hard gels have a low molecular weight and a high resistance to solvents such as acetone, and therefore must be filed off of the nail to be removed.

All gel products are generally applied with a brush and floated onto the natural nail as an overlay, or used to extend the nail over a tip or sculpted onto a nail form.

Soft gels have a high molecular weight and a low resistance to solvents, meaning they can be soaked off with acetone. An example of a soft gel is gel polish.
