Beginner’s Guide to Gel Nails at Kemayu Spa
Embarking on the world of gel nails can be both exciting and a little intimidating for a novice. But fear not! Kemayu Spa is here to be your guiding star on this new journey. From understanding what gel nails really are to their benefits and the exquisite experience at Kemayu Spa, this guide will furnish you with everything you need to know.
What Are Gel Nails?
At their core, gel nails are a type of manicure that uses a gel-based polish cured under UV or LED light. The result? A glossy, durable, and chip-resistant finish that can last up to two weeks or more!
Why Opt for Gel Nails?
- Longevity: Unlike regular nail polish, gel nails can maintain their shine and integrity for several weeks.
- Protection: Gels act as a protective layer, potentially reducing nail breakage and promoting growth.
- Instant Drying: No more waiting! Once the gel nails are cured under the light, they’re completely dry.
- Design Flexibility: From intricate designs to a vast palette of colors, gels can cater to every aesthetic.
Your Gel Nail Journey at Kemayu Spa
For those new to the world of gels, Kemayu’s experienced nail technicians will guide you through the process, understand your needs, and help you pick the right shade and design.
Your nails will be cleaned, filed, and buffed. The cuticles will be gently pushed back, creating a perfect canvas.
Starting with a base coat, your technician will then apply the gel nail polish in layers, curing each layer under a UV or LED lamp.
4. Sealing & Protection:
A top coat seals in the color, followed by a quick curing session. The process finishes with a nourishing cuticle oil to ensure overall nail health.
5. Aftercare Guidance:
For first-timers, understanding aftercare is crucial. Kemayu Spa provides tips to prolong your manicure, such as wearing gloves when doing chores or avoiding direct sunlight on your nails.
Tips for First-Timers
- Stay Informed: If you have any allergies or skin sensitivities, inform your nail technician in advance.
- Take a Break: While gel nails are fabulous, it’s beneficial to give your natural nails a breather in between sessions.
- Safe Removal: When it’s time to change your nail color, opt for professional removal to avoid nail damage.
