how long does gel nail polish last?
Gel nail polish manicures can last 2 to 3 weeks without chipping or snagging. By the third week, the nails tend to grow out to a point where it begins to be unsightly, although the polish itself is often holding up nicely.
To remove gel nail polish, your nails must be soaked in nail polish remover for 15 minutes.
Some health officials warn users of potential risks of gel nail polish. Although complete studies have not been performed, some of the ingredients in certain gel polishes are known carcinogens and exposure to the UV lamp, which sets the polish, may increase your risk of skin cancer.
