The Benefits of Gel Polish

With so many different kinds of nail treatments, it can be hard to decide which one to opt for. At Tanners Lane our beauticians are trained in Gel nails and work hard to give you the shape and colour you’re after. If you’re not sure what colour to choose, check out our ‘Choosing the Perfect Nail Colour This Spring’ blog.

With regards to recent questions asked by a few clients in relation to the risk of the UV light used to harden the gel polish, we thought we would put our client’s minds at rest and provide them with the following information:

The Daily Mail reached out to a spokeswoman from Creative Nail Designs (CND), the company behind Shellac, a gel polish brand, and the company noted, “UV light exposure from a gel manicure lamp is no more dangerous than sitting under strip lighting (florescent lighting).”

What are the many benefits of gel nail polish?

  1. It can last for up to 3 to 4 weeks without chipping, peeling or fading. No dents or scratches, and its chip free!
  1. It dries quickly under UV light so there’s no need to worry about smudging on the way home.
  2. It can be used to extend the length of your nails if you use tips underneath. This is a great and natural way to strengthen your own nail and to therefore encourage your nails to grow.
  3. It has an odourless application, as opposed to acrylic nails that can be a little potent when applying.
  4. They are easy to remove.
