Gel Polish

Gel nail polish is one of the greatest inventions ever… no more chipping and peeling after just a couple of days. Gel polish typically lasts about 2 weeks, and it stays super shiny like it was just applied. It protects your nails and makes them stronger, preventing them from breaking or ripping.

And one of the best advantages is that it dries instantly after curing in an LED or UV lamp, so you can immediately get back to work without having to worry about messing up your polish

At Willow Creek We use several different brands and have over 500 color blends to choose from.

These days, you have a wide range of options when it comes to your nails.

If you are considering nail extensions, then you have the choice of Classic Acrylic nails or Gel nails. Each offers its own pros and cons and knowing some information about each can help you make the decision that’s best for you. Here are some things to consider when it comes to choosing between gel nails and acrylic nails.

Hard Gel Nails vs. Acrylic Nails

The main difference between acrylics and gels lies in the product makeup: acrylic nails are made by dipping a brush into a liquid (called monomer) and then placing the wet brush in a powder (called polymer), creating a ball of product that is then placed on the nail bed and patted into place. The product is allowed to cure for a few minutes before filing, but the curing process continues over the next 48 hours. Acrylic nails are hard and very robust, when applied correctly.

Gel products are pre-mixed and are in an actual “gel” form. A brush is used to pick up a portion of gel and place it on the nail bed, and then it is brushed and coaxed into position. Then the finger is placed in a low-wattage UV light to cure the gel. Once it is removed from the light, it is fully cured. Most Gel Nails are more flexible than the acrylic nails, but not as flexible as natural nails.

Caring for Your Nails

Once you have your extensions in place, proper care is best if you want them to continue to look their best. Here are some basic care tips:

  • Schedule timely repair appointments. If you break a nail or notice that a nail has begun to lift, get yourself into your nail salon as soon as possible. DIY repairs are a bad idea. For instance, gluing down a loose nail by yourself can cause moisture to become trapped and end up causing an infection. Leave the tough stuff to us.
  • Regularly put nail oil on your extensions.
  • Protect your nails. If you have nail extensions, you need to protect them when doing any type of housework or gardening work. Be sure to wear protective gloves, and take care when performing everyday tasks like opening soda cans.
