The meaning of the viscosity of nail gels
- The viscosity of gels is an important factor in choosing the right nail product. Viscosity refers to the consistency of the gel and how thick it is. There are different types of gels with different viscosities suitable for different applications.
First of all, there are thin liquid gels, which are also known as foundation gels. These gels have a very low viscosity and are ideal for building nail extensions. They can be applied and shaped easily and help to achieve a smooth and even surface.
Medium-bodied gels are slightly thicker than thin-bodied gels and have a higher viscosity. These gels are good for modeling nail beds and creating curves and contours. They can also be used to strengthen natural nails as they provide a good grip.
Then there are viscous gels, also called builder gels. These gels have a very high viscosity and are ideal for creating extra volume on natural or artificial nails. They are ideal for those with thin or weak nails and can help improve the look of short or damaged nails.
It's also important to note that gels can have different curing times. Thin liquid gels usually harden faster than thick gels. However, curing time may vary by brand and product.
When purchasing gels, you should always consider viscosity and make sure you choose the right product for your specific needs. If you are unsure which gel is best for you, contact our NAILINO support team. We advise you and are happy to help you make the right choice.
