Gel Manicures can grow your nails
Gel manicures help grow flimsy nails
Gel manicures have proven they help support and protect flimsy nails. For about 20 years I’ve worn acrylic nails and was very happy with the way they looked till I received a green shade of fungus as a result of being in and out of water. Being a hairstylist working in water, hair color, bleaching processes and general rough handling of my nails they take a beating daily.
For many years, my nails were great until about a year ago, I had removed all of the acrylic and decided to go with the natural nail. I had avoided touching anything. The nail beds were so thin and fragile. It hurt to touch any object after the removal. After about a month they started to be more normal, however; the appearance of the nails were a far cry from what I was used to. My nails were brittle, dry and you could see the drill smiles in the nail bed. One of my nails actually had ripped on the corner. The nail was so flimsy that it would bend backwards. I was really concerned that having acrylics on for so many years may have damaged my actual nail beds that I may not have been able to grow my nails out.
Hair color stained them because they were so porous and looked like I was dragging my fingers through the dirt. Professionally speaking, a well shaped shorter squared off nail makes nails more polished looking. The nails are more proportionally shaped to enhance my hands.
Working in a salon with girls that look take good care of their nails and skin, can make a girl feel like she needs to step up her game in changing my nail appearance. In the spa department of Indulge Salon, York, Pa, the spa staff looked professional working with their clients.
In the last few months, wearing gel polish that has made a difference. I can visually see the benefits of my gel manicure:
- nails grow quickly
- nails are stronger and more durable
- nails hold the shape longer (about 2 weeks)
- no chipping or peeling
- naturally grow out from the cuticles
- gives a thicker more balanced nail appearance
- easy removal of the gel polish
- enjoyable process
