Gel Nails in Melbourne

Hard gel, soft gel, acrylic, Shellac - and that's just for starters. There are so many great nail treatments available that it can be hard to choose.

The number one rule is to choose a professional nail salon. That way, you can be assured of getting the job done perfectly in clean hygienic surroundings. You'll also have access to lots of helpful advice, especially when it comes to choosing the best treatment for your lifestyle.

Adding Length

Gel nails are a mix of monomers and oligomers which harden to a polymer when exposed to UV light. They are completely artificial. In fact, polymers are essentially a type of plastic. The actual gel can be painted onto your natural nails or over an artificial extension if you want to add length.

If your main focus is extending your nails you will need to use hard gel. It has a low molecular weight and a high resistance to solvents such as acetone. It sets hard and can be filed and shaped. Soft gel is ideal when you want great colour and shine on your natural nails.

Choosing Your Gel

There are many types of hard gel available in Melbourne nail salons, including UV Gel, Biogel and Japanese Gel. You'll find these listed in the Bookwell directory.

Once hardened your new set of gel nails can last up to four weeks without a chip or scratch. A word of warning, do not try and remove the gel yourself. This needs to be done by a trained nail technician.

Despite the durability of the best gel nails in Melbourne, it's still worthwhile taking care of them. By wearing gloves for washing up and cleaning, and applying good quality hand and nail moisturiser, you will keep them looking fabulous for longer.

Remember, gel nails are different to acrylic in that you don't get infills. The treatment is redone when you go for your next appointment, which gives you the opportunity to try a gorgeous new colour.
