It's All about Jessica Nails!

As a beauty therapist, I have seen a change in the last year from what 
we call in the business 'normal manicures' to Gel manicures. This is a 
trend that all my colleagues are seeing too. I guess this is mainly to 
do with the ease for the client, because with Gel nails the 'varnish' 
is dry the second they leave the salon, meaning no smudgy 
accidents. In my opinion, Gel nails are a happy medium between a 
natural manicure which can be easily damaged and acrylic nails which 
can look very fake and damage the actual nail bed.

There are quite a few brands of Gel nails available such as OPI and 
Shellac but I like to use the Jessica range called Geleration. This is partly 
because I like the Jessica brand, as it is a specific nail care brand 
that focuses on nail care, but also because with Jessica I see an instant 
result from treatments. Even the most neglected hands and feet can go 
home looking like new!

What's lovely about Geleration is that it is very hard wearing and
can last for 2-3 weeks. I really like the durability and I personally 
think it makes it really good value for money - especially as it is 
really quick to do with a manicure taking as little as half an hour.

To make sure nails are impossible to smudge each layer of varnish is 
put under the LED Lamp - this is such a brilliant advancement to 
manicuring and I think that regular manicures will go out of the 
window because gel nails look so natural - its a great way for those 
who bite their nails too as it will protect the nail from teeth and 
allow the nail to grow. As the popularity of Gel nails grows, so does 
the selection of colours. Jessica does everything from the traditional 
French and pinks to electric blues and blacks – there really is a colour to 
suit everyone.

The downside with gel nails would be that they have to be soaked off 
BUT it does not damage the nail and it does not require excessive 
filling. Also you can buy a kit to remove the nails at home saving 
money and time as you don't have to come in to have them taken off - 
which to me is a bonus!
