Gel vs. Traditional Polishes - Making the Right Choice for Your Clients

In the diverse world of nail care, choosing the right type of polish is pivotal to both the satisfaction of your clients and the reputation of your salon. At Miss Dolla, we understand the importance of this decision, and we're here to guide you through the differences between gel and traditional polishes, helping you make the best choice for your clients.

Durability and Wear

Gel polishes are renowned for their long-lasting wear, typically lasting two to three weeks without chipping or peeling. This is a stark contrast to traditional nail polishes, which might start to show wear within a few days. For clients with busy lifestyles or those who prefer a low-maintenance beauty routine, gel polishes from Miss Dolla offer a durable solution that keeps nails looking pristine longer.

Curing and Drying Time

One of the major advantages of gel polish is its curing time. Unlike traditional polish that air dries and can take up to an hour to fully harden, gel polish cures within seconds under a UV or LED lamp. This immediate curing process provided by Miss Dolla's advanced gel systems means a quicker, smudge-free service, allowing nail technicians to see more clients without sacrificing service quality.

Aesthetic and Finish

When it comes to the finish and the aesthetic appeal, gel polishes provide a glossier and more vibrant appearance than traditional polishes. Our Miss Dolla gel range offers a variety of finishes from high gloss to matte, and everything in between. Moreover, gel polishes do not yellow over time, maintaining their clarity and color integrity far longer than their traditional counterparts.

Health and Safety

It’s essential to consider the health implications of the products used. Traditional polishes often contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like toluene, dibutyl phthalate, and formaldehyde. Miss Dolla’s gel polishes are formulated to be non-toxic and free from these harmful chemicals, offering a safer alternative for both nail technicians and clients.
