Polygel nails are a cutting-edge product that combines the best of both acrylic and gel systems. This new trend, with over 2 billion views on TikTok, offers the flexibility and ease of use of gel, with the strength and durability of acrylic. With polygel, you can create stunning nail extensions for your clients that look natural, feel lightweight, and last for weeks without lifting or chipping.
During the course, you’ll gain in-depth knowledge about different Polygel products, tools, and techniques, including proper nail preparation, sculpting, and encapsulation. You’ll also learn how to create custom nail shapes, including square, almond, coffin, and stiletto using poly gel. Our instructors will guide you through the entire process, providing tips and tricks to achieve flawless results and troubleshoot common issues.
What does Polygel Nail treatment look like?
This nail treatment starts with the preparation of the nails by filing, buffing and removing cuticles. The polygel is then applied to the nails in a bead, which is then moulded into the client’s desired nail shape. Polygel doesn’t air dry, so technicians have the time to perfectly create their client’s desired nails before curing them under a lamp.
You can expect to charge around £50 for Polygel nails, depending on your location. The nails usually last between 2 and 5 weeks, with infill sessions recommended every 3 weeks.
