Calgel is a one phase gel nail system that has built its reputation on being easy to use, that soaks off easily and lasts up to six weeks. Unlike gel polish systems which may require a perfect nail to begin with, Calgel can create the perfect nail by building and correcting ridged or broken nails. No need for additional products, one clear gel does all.
Calgel is extremely hard wearing; its strength is in its flexibility as it acts as a shock absorber on the natural nail, removing the risk of chipping and cracking. This allows movement with the natural nail and reduces the possibility of breakage and snapping. Calgel creates beautiful, long lasting, shiny nails for up to 6 weeks. There is a range of over 130 colours, in varying finishes, which can also be mixed to create a bespoke colour just for you.
Calgel is permeable system, that allows moisture to pass through the layers of the gel, this moisture can evaporate helping to prevent lifting and for maximum adhesion. As Calgel doesn't interfere with the natural metabolic activity of the nail; no ‘break’ is needed between treatments. Calgel is a soak-off gel, and after proper removal, the natural nail will be damage free! NO harsh tools, electric drills or files are needed.
Your nails will be completely cured when you leave the salon, no need to panic about touching things and chipping!
As Calgel is pourous, which is great for your nails, it is important to wear gloves when using any chemicals, cleaning products, using tanning products etc. These products can pass through the gel layers and cause premature lifting and/or staining.
Overexposure to water can cause premature lifting also. The best way to prevent this is to apply cuticle oil regularly. If on holiday and in and out of the pool, a good slosh of cuticle oil over the gel, will create a barrier and help to prevent any damage. When doing dishes, wear gloves.
Cuticle oil is your best friend when wearing gel nails. If the nail plate and the gel layers become too dry, this can cause separation, and the gel may lift off the nail. Regular application of oil will increase the longevity of your manicure.
All aftercare products, including cuticle oils, balms, soak off solutions, formulated specifically to work with Calgel, even polishes in matching colours, can be purchased in salon, after your treatment.
