The process to apply the polish is mostly the same as the traditional manicure. Your nails have to be shaped and clean, and the EMMA base coat is applied before the EMMA gel colour.
After the gel base coat has been added, your nails will be placed under the EMMA LED light to "cure" the base. Each new coat gets set in the light after application, right down to the top coat.
Many people opt for gel nails because they last much longer than standard polish. Gel polish doesn't chip, so you can keep it on for weeks at a time. You'll only need to get it changed or removed when your nails grow out too far.
If you're trying to grow your natural nails out, gel is also a good choice. The gel adds a layer of protection that helps keep your nails from breaking.
