This one’s for you mani and pedi lovers out there! Do you spend tons of time painstakingly painting your nails only to have them chip or smudge within the next hour? Then you might want to consider getting a gelish manicure! Also known as gel nails, a gelish manicure lasts way longer than a regular manicure. Thinking of getting a mani makeover before the start of the New Year? We’ve gathered some of our favourite salons in Singapore that offer budget-friendly gelish manicures!

What is a gelish manicure?


Basically, a gelish manicure involves using a liquid gel that hardens and solidifies under a UV light. Because of their incredible durability, gel nails can usually last up to 3 weeks. They are also much thicker and sturdier compared to regular and shellac manicures. Besides their hardiness, gel nails also help to protect your natural nails from chipping and breaking. Plus, they are able to retain their colour and appearance without the need for touchups. Depending on your personal preference, you can get gel nails in a glossy or matte finish. In terms of application, gel nails are quite straightforward and each coat of polish is placed under a UV light device for them to set. This process is what makes gel nails so tough and long-lasting.

What’s the difference between a classic, shellac and a gelish manicure?

Gelish nails are more durable than regular and shellac nails

First and foremost, the key difference between a regular, shellac and gelish manicure is the formula. Essentially, shellac nails are kind of like a hybrid between regular and gelish nails. Hence, they possess the shine and classic look of a regular manicure but with the durability of a gelish manicure. However, shellac nails are not as durable as pure gelish nails and are prone to chipping like a regular manicure. So if you’re going for longevity, opt for gelish nails. On the other hand, regular and shellac nails are great for those who like to change up their nails every 1 to 2 weeks.
