The image of a well-groomed woman includes not only impeccable make-up and beautifully laid hair, but also an exemplary manicure. Unfortunately, the usual varnishes, even those inflicted by a first-class master, have the property of splitting and losing their freshness for several days. For fashionistas, the discovery of steel is a permanent coating for the nail plate, allowing a long time not to appear at the master of manicure. This is biogel and shellac. You can argue hoarsely about which of these coatings is better and has more advantages. It's time to consider these miracle devices separately, to disassemble their pros and cons to decide when to use biogel, and when to apply shellac.
What is biogel
Biogel, or as it is also called a biosculptural gel, has recently appeared in the arsenal of manicure rooms. This is an excellent alternative to boring acrylic. With the help of biogel it is possible not only to increase the length of the marigold, but also to strengthen them due to the protein contained in the agent. Nails covered with biogel do not look artificial, they preserve natural shine and naturalness. The coating does not contain harmful substances, it can be used to create manicure in pregnant and lactating women.
The application of biogel on the nails is not difficult and does not harm the nail plate, since it does not require a preliminary cutting of the upper layer of the nail. Before applying the preparation, the nail is slightly polished, then the strengthening serum is applied to it, then the nail plate is covered with biogel with the help of a brush. Curing of the gel occurs only under the ultraviolet lamp. A persistent manicure is ready.
By the way, keep a manicure made with biogel will be long enough – at least two weeks, then you need a correction. Nails covered with biogel, do not lose their strength, do not fade and do not break. Yes, and removes the coating is very simple, a soft solution to remove the gel does not damage the nails.
You can praise this wonderful way of manicure for a long time, however, and it has its drawbacks:
Despite the fact that there are various varieties of manicure with the help of biogel, after all this coating does not imply an additional decoration of nails in the form of rhinestones and various applications. Only a colored varnish, a French manicure or a natural transparent coating.
Biogel is destroyed when working with substances containing methyl alcohol or acetone. Therefore, when working with household chemicals, you should be careful not to spoil a fresh glossy manicure.
Such a resistant shellac
Shellak, most recently appeared on the shelves, managed to win fervent love from the weaker sex. This truly revolutionary coating combines all the benefits of gel and conventional lacquer. Shellac has no chemical odor. The material is extremely resistant to external damage – it does not chip, does not rub off, does not lose its luster and brightness. Through 2-3 weeks it looks like you just left the beauty salon. You can clean, wash and wash, clean mushrooms and potatoes – nothing will happen to the coating.
The palette of colors at shellac is huge. The most fashionable shades of the season immediately appear in gel-varnishes. Easy to apply. Apply shellac, like the usual lacquer, you can at home on your own. Only it is necessary to take into account the moment that, like biogel, shellac hardens only under the influence of ultraviolet.
The lack of shellac in comparison with biogel is that after two or three weeks shellac must be removed. Nails and cuticles grow, and hands look untidy. Correction here can not be helped. There is a second drawback of shellac: they can not grow nails. The coating is applied only to the natural length.
Each cover has its own fans and opponents. Both options are good and allow you to enjoy a perfect manicure for a long time.
