What is Japanese Gel?

100% Gel, None of the Other Stuff

Japanese gels are true gels (as opposed to gel polish) because they are not being diluted by nail polish which makes them highly-pigmented and durable. Gel polish must be soaked off with acetone after every service, while Japanese gel can be soaked off OR filled in depending on your service. Japanese gels are great because they have the dual use of being used for nail art and full applications. You will only need a thin coat each time to get beautiful, opaque colors.

Specialized Formula

No bonder or primer needed! Japanese gel bases are made with the intention of simplifying the nail process. Japanese gels last so much longer on your nails too! It can go without chipping for 4+ weeks when applied properly.
