Whether you go to a salon or get your own manicure at home, you will probably notice that there is more than one type of nail polish to choose from. Yes, there are actually many other types of nail polish worth knowing about, besides the traditional formulas you've been using since you were a kid.


Gel nail polish may be familiar to you, while others, such as shellac, may be entirely new to you. Therefore, this blog will talk about the types of gel nails, the differences they have, and which one is the best for you.


What Are Different Types of Gel Nails?

1. Soft Gel

Soft gel is a soakable gel that you can remove with 100% pure acetone. The soft gel increases minimal strength for short to medium length natural nails, but is not enough to support nail extensions. The soft gel is applied with a nail brush and then cured under an LED light or UV light.


Soft gel comes in a variety of colors and can be used alone as gel nail polish, which typically lasts two to four weeks. Over time, the soft gel will wear thin on the free edge of the nail and will need to be reapplied every few weeks.


2. Hard Gel

Hard gel is used to increase the length of the natural nail. This thick gel is spread on the nail and then moved around the nail to create the shape. Hard gel nails can be formed into any nail shape and add the desired length of the client's nail.


The hard gel is cured under an LED or UV light. Once the curing process is complete, the nail technician will use a nail file or electronic filing tool to file and shape the nail. Then color is added and the manicure is done. Each hard gel nail set lasts three to four weeks before needing to be refilled.


3. Gel Nail Polish

Gel nail polish can perform like a gel and apply like traditional nail polish. While traditional nail polish normally comes off in 2 to 3 days, gel nail polish can last for weeks. Gel nail polish is a thin UV gel that has pigmentation and comes in many color shades.


Gel is slightly thicker than shellac or traditional nail polish and will last for several weeks. On top of that, gel can protect natural nails and is tougher, which is ideal for people who have weak, brittle nails.


Gel nail polish gets dry by curing under an LED or UV light. It can be applied individually to natural nails or over a hard gel and will last for 2 to 3 weeks. Gel nail polish can be safely removed at home with 100% pure acetone and it is by far the fastest gel nail service out there.

It is essential that you do not peel the gel polish from your nails. Stripping gel polish from your nails can damage your natural nails. Gel nail polish is perfect for all nail types, whether they are short styles or long nails.


Other Types of Nail Polish


Dip Powder


  • Polygel

Polygel is a hybrid nail product consisting of an acrylic powder and a clear gel. It is not self-levelling but is more flexible than acrylic and stronger than gel. A nail technician may use a nail file or e-file to shape the nails, which is similar to shaping acrylics or hard gels for nail enhancement.


The polygel is cured under an LED or UV light and filed off the natural nail in the same way as hard gels and acrylics. The polygel needs to be refilled each 2 to 3 weeks. An outstanding advantage of polygel is its odorless design.


  • Acrylics

The acrylic nailis another common type of nail polish. Acrylic nail polish is a combination of liquid and powder. This mixture is applied to your natural nail.


When it dries, acrylic nail polish hardens and is ready to be filed into the shape you want. You can also use it to extend the length of your natural nails. Acrylic nails can last 2 to 3 weeks before they need to be refilled.


  • Dip Powder

Dip powder nail involves colored acrylic-based gel powders and resins. To apply a dip powder nail polish, your nail technician will apply a base coat followed by a coat of pigmented powder. The process will be duplicated until it leaves you with an opaque nail. Finally, another coat of clear powder and sealer will be applied.


Dip powder manicures are an ideal choice for people who want a quick shiny look without the hassle of applying glue.


Shellac

Shellac is a hybrid gel-like nail polish. It is applied over the natural nail and hardened with a UV light. Shellac nail polish should not be used to prolong the length of nails. Normally, with this type of nail polish one can expect it to last about 2 weeks.


Shellac is more fragile than gel because it is partially made from traditional nail polish. It can easily be removed using a special acetone-based remover. Shellac is ideal for those who want a nail color that lasts longer than traditional nail polish.
