Nail Polish FAQs
If you’re booking in with a technician to have nail polish applied, expect to pay between £12 and £25.
The four types of nail polish are: regular nail polish, gel, shellac, and acrylic. Regular nail polish is the type of polish you probably first started using when you were younger. It’s easy to apply and remove at home, and typically lasts around a week before it starts to chip. Gel is a long-lasting polish that can be applied at home or in the salon and can be used to extend your nail length; it cures under UV light and lasts for 2-3 weeks. Shellac is a patented brand by Creative Nail Design (CND); it’s part gel, part regular nail polish, cures under UV light and lasts 2-3 weeks. Acrylic nails are part liquid, part powder, and can also be used to extend your nail length. Acrylic starts to cure as soon as it’s exposed to air, and lasts for 6-8 weeks.
It’s really down to personal preference. Gel nail polish is stronger and lasts longer (2-3 weeks) than traditional nail polish (1 week). Both can create a high-shine finish and both can be applied in salons or at home. Traditional nail polish dries in the air and can be removed at home using nail polish remover. Gel, on the other hand, needs to cure under a UV lamp and should be removed professionally in a salon to help preserve nail health.
Nail polish is a type of lacquer used to colour fingernails and toenails. It is typically made from nitrocellulose which is dissolved in butyl acetate or ethyl acetate. It forms a shiny film as the acetate solvent evaporates.
Soak a cotton wool pad in an over-the-counter nail polish remover, alcohol, or hand sanitizer, then place the pad on your nail for 10 seconds before rubbing it gently back and forth to remove the polish.
Depending on the quality of the polish you use, regular nail polish should last for around a week. It will then start to chip.
