Love getting a mani pedi and spend the first few days walking around worried about ruining it with a chip? Fear no more ladies… say hello to the latest in nail technology… the UV Gel Nail Manicure!
The mani is PERFECT for weddings…
Just like in a regular manicure, cuticles are pushed back and nails are filed. Nails are then buffed, so the gel adheres properly. Next a coat of gel “polish” is applied to each nail, with 30 seconds of drying time under a UV Light in between.
A second coat is applied and then allowed to dry again for 30 seconds.
This mani is made for brides and bridesmaids as it can be done a few days before the wedding without the stress of someone chipping a nail or smudging their beautifully polished nails.
Check with your local salon and see if they offer the UV gels (sometimes known as a New York Manicure) and keep an eye out for OPI’s new range of UV colours heading our way soon!
