Pros and Cons of Gelish Nails
Before getting gel nails, think if it’s the solutions that suit you best. One of the pros of gel nails is durability, they last up to 3 weeks, which is definitely much longer than a traditional manicure. They shouldn’t chip or anything like that, however, it’s not a good solution if you do a lot of housework and wash dishes without gloves. Another positive side is that the gel stays for few weeks, which gives your nails time to grow and prevent you from biting or cutting it. Gel nails can also have more natural look than acrylic nails. On the other side, they are usually more expensive than acrylic nails or traditional manicure. Gel nails also require a follow-up visit after few weeks to fill up the gel, which comes with additional cost. Another downside is the process of drying the gel, which involves UV light - harmful for your skin. Also, the removal of gel damages nails and skin, as you have to soak your nail in acetone for 10 minutes or so. It can make your nails brittle and thin.

Properly applied gel nails can last longer and won’t cause you much trouble. It’s important that a technician is qualified and has experience in this matter, also because of exposure to UV light. Check photo gallery before making a final decision and ensure used products are of high-quality.
