HOW TO | A Beginner's Guide on Polygel Nails

by cookie z 25 Dec 2023


Polygel nails have gained immense popularity in the beauty industry in recent years. I am thrilled to provide you with a comprehensive guide on the basics of polygel nails. Whether you're a professional nail technician or simply someone finding a easy way to complete nail extension, this article will equip you with valuable knowledge about polygel nails.

Polygel, a hybrid product with the ease of application of acrylics and the lightweight feel of gel, has revolutionized the nail industry. It is a unique blend of polymer and gel that can be molded and shaped to create beautiful, durable nail enhancements.
Let's delve into the key aspects of polygel nails!

Application process of Poly gel Nails:

The application of polygel nails involves several steps. It starts with the preparation of the natural nail by removing excess cuticles and gently buffing the surface. After applying a dehydrator and primer, a thin layer of polygel is applied onto the nail using a brush. The polygel is then shaped and cured under a UV or LED lamp. This process is repeated to build the desired thickness and shape. Finally, the nails are filed, buffed, and finished with a top coat for a glossy and long-lasting finish.

Here we are showing you guys a tutorial on using Polygel to get that perfect, affordable and easy DIY nails that you can achieve in the comfort of your own home.

Benefits of polygel nails:

Polygel nails offer numerous advantages that have contributed to their popularity. Firstly, they are incredibly lightweight, making them feel natural and comfortable on the nails. Secondly, polygel nails are highly flexible, reducing the risk of cracking or breaking. Additionally, they are odorless and do not produce any harmful fumes during the application process. Lastly, polygel nails provide excellent adhesion, ensuring long-lasting wear without lifting or peeling.

How to make long lasting poly gel nails

To maintain polygel nails, it's essential to follow a few simple steps. Regular nail care, such as moisturizing the cuticles and applying cuticle oil, will keep them looking healthy. Avoid using your nails as tools and be cautious while engaging in activities that may cause damage. When it comes to removal, it's recommended to visit a professional nail technician. Or you can do more practices with nail drills to remove. They will safely file down the polygel layer and soak the nails in acetone to dissolve the remaining product.

Polygel nails offer endless design possibilities for creative expression. They can be shaped into various lengths and styles, from elegant stiletto or almond shapes to classic square or rounded tips. You can experiment with different colors, glitters, and nail art techniques to achieve unique and personalized looks. The versatility of polygel allows for sculpting 3D designs, embedding gems or charms, and even creating ombre effects.
