Nail Art is a creative way to paint and decorate your natural nails. It is a type of artwork that can be done both on fingernails and toenails which are know as manicures and pedicures respectively. In manicures and pedicures we trim, file, buff, shape and polish the natural nails. We sometimes remove cuticles and softens the skin around the nails.
Types of manicures may vary from normal polishes, gel polishes to acrylics nails.
Acrylics – has a chemical mixture of monomer liquid and polymer powder that can be directly applied on your natural nails or artificial nails. These are called nail extensions or enhancements.
Gel polish – has a chemical combination similar to acrylics. We apply several layers of gel polish on the nails and cure it under UV/ LED light. When gel is cured under the light it hardens. There are many forms of gel but the most common in them is gel polishes and like other forms of gel also require UV/LED light to cure. The difference between acrylics and gel is – acrylics dries naturally but gel needs UV/LED light to cure.
