Basic about Nail Polish
Nail Polish, also known as Nail Varnish in English is a lacquer applied to the human fingernail and toenails to decorate as well as protect the nail plates. The formula to create nail polish keeps on revising for multiple reasons, such as:
- Enhance polish product’s decorative properties
- Ensure safety for consumer use
- Suppress Cracking or Peeling of Nails
What is a Nail Polish made up of?
Nail polish is a mixture of organic polymers and other components that impart different colors and textures. Nail polishes come in many color shades and therefore play a significant part in manicures and pedicures.
What are the types of Nail Polishes?
Although the classification of Nail Polish can yield a long list, we have chosen and explained three major types of Nail Polishes for your reference in the following pointers:
This nail polish is made up of a clear, milky-colored, or opaque pink polish formula. Such a formula is used before applying nail polish to the nail to strengthen and restore moisture in the nails. This also helps the polish adhere to the nail, prevents staining, and extends the lifespan of the manicure.
Some Base coats are referred to as ridge fillers as they can create a smooth surface, which de-emphasizes the ridges appearing on the unbuffed nails. Other base coats are referred to as “peel-off base coats” that allow users to peel off their nail polish without applying a nail remover.
This nail polish is a clear-colored polish formula used after applying nail polish. The Top Coat forms a hardened barrier on the nail preventing it from chipping, scratching, or even peeling. Some topcoats are marketed as quick-drying as they help the underlying colored polish dry. It also gives the nail polish a more finished look and helps to keep the polish on longer.
Gel polish is a long-lasting nail polish made up of methacrylate polymer. Gel Polish is painted same as the traditional nail polish, but it does not dry. Rather, it is cured under an ultraviolet LED. Regular nail polish formulas typically last two to seven days whereas, gel polish can last two weeks with proper application and care. Gel polish is more difficult to remove than regular nail polish, as it is removed by soaking the nails in pure acetone for five to fifteen minutes, depending on the formula.
