DOES GEL NAIL POLISH DAMAGE NAILS?

The answer in short is NO. Thanks for reading folks :)



Wow you’re still here?


The product itself is absolutely safe for nails and does not cause any damage.


So i guess your next question would be what damages nails?



Incorrect removal of old material such as aggressive filing or buffing, which can damage the natural nail plate. Another cause is prolonged soaking in acetone, which, like any liquid softens the layers of the nail, additionally longer contact with acetone can dry out the nails. When we add to this the scratching of the gel polish with force, the nail is damaged and white spots may appear on its surface. Improper, too aggressive buffing of the plate before styling can also be the cause of damage.


Doing nails at home by oneself or by an inexperienced or unqualified person. It may seem easy, but in reality it is a quite complicated procedure. Many products cannot be applied directly to the nail plate. Only a person professionally engaged in nails has such knowledge.


Products from unreliable sources. Unfortunately, easy access to nail polishes and their popularity create an ideal environment for counterfeit products. Keep away from them.


Peeling off gel polish. Absolute nail killer. Peeling off gel polish removes a significant amount of layers of the nail. If this is a habit that you cannot overcome, it's better to avoid gel nails.


Keeping gel nails for too long. Even if your nails still look good, remember to refresh them every 3 weeks. The stress caused by any old coatings such as Acrylic, Gel polish and Hard Gel can severely damage the nails, especially long nails. Another result of wearing the Coating for too long may be lifting, which can lead to unpleasant bacterial infections.


Insufficient curing time in the lamp. This mistake, especially when repeated, can lead to the occurrence of an allergic reaction and can completely damage the nails.


Flooded cuticles. Neither a light-curing product nor a primer can have contact with the skin. It is very important, as just like uncured gel, it can cause unwanted allergies.



The best regenerative treatments will not rebuild damaged and thin nails. To make them strong again, you will have to patiently wait for the nails to grow back and follow the rules described above.


Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post. if you have any other topics you would like to me discuss feel free to leave any suggestions or contact me on my socials.

Best,
