Today, you have women preferring gel nail polish to other manicures because gel polish is virtually indestructible and impossibly glossy. Plus, it is available at almost every nail salon. The most exciting aspect of a gel manicure is that it lasts for several weeks without having to touch it up. Let us discuss everything you should know about DND DC gel manicures.
Difference between Gel and ordinary Nail Polish
The traditional lacquer polish cannot withstand the daily wear and tear without chipping off at the edges. Women dread to search for their smartphones inside their handbags when they use the traditional nail polish for fear of chipping. With DND polish, there is no such fear because this nail polish is made of stronger ingredients to grasp the nail tighter than conventional nail polish.
Secondly, gel polish requires curing under a UV or LED lamp, whereas the traditional nail polish can dry with oxygen/air exposure. You can remove nail polish using nail polish removers, whereas gel polish requires soaking the nails in acetone.
Here is some advice to make your gel manicures last long

It also becomes difficult to check your nails for infections or fungal growth if you have back-to-back gel polishes. Besides, the robust gel coating deprives the nails of the oxygen they need to breathe naturally. Hence, a break of a week or two between two successive gel manicures can do your nails a world of good.
Avoid picking or peeling gel polish
Generally, DND Nail Polish does not chip off easily. However, if they show signs of peeling off, it is advisable to resist the temptation to pick or peel them. If you do it improperly, there could be gaps between your nail and the polish layer where water could seep in. It leads to providing a breeding ground for bacterial and fungal infections. If you ever experience a premature experience, it is better to approach a nail salon and go for a regular nail polish removal process.
