Gel Manicure by Dashé

Love the thought of getting a gel polish manicure but would like to learn more about it first?   Read on…

What is a gel manicure?

A gel manicure is a salon service that is offered at Beauty by Dashé.  It uses a gel-based polish and requires a LED light to cure the polish and lock it onto your nails.

Which products does Beauty by Dashé use?

At Beauty by Dashé we use Daisy Nail Designs (DND) gel polish.  DND began in 2012 and has over 500 colors.  Every gel polish has the exact match in traditional polish and DND has never discontinued a color.

How long should it last?

A gel polish manicure can last up to 14 days or more depending on how fast your nails grow and how you care for them.  To help gel manicures last longer cuticle work must be completed properly.  At home care can aid in this as well.

Procedure, expectations, removal, etc.

A gel polish manicure begins with removal of polish, shaping, pushing cuticles back and trimming if necessary. The nails are cleansed with isopropyl alcohol. 1 base coat, 2 color coats, and 1 top coat is applied and cured in an LED lamp for 60 seconds.  Is the LED lamp safe for your hands?  Yes. There is no UV light used.

If these steps are not followed, your gel polish may begin to chip, lift, or last less than 2 weeks.

Removal: nails are lightly filed, wrapped in an acetone soaked cotton ball and wrapped with foil or silicone. They will soak for 15-20 minutes and the remainder of polish is gently scraped from the nail plate.

At home care

What can I do to make my nails last?

Cuticle oil! Keeping your nails hydrated will extend the life of your gel polish manicure. Use 2 times daily. Do not use any heavy cleaning chemicals or acetone without gloves. No picking, playing, cutting, filing, etc. leave it to me to take care of you!
