Soak Off Gel Polish

I just have to say that I am in love with Entity's Color Couture soak off gel enamel.

In talking with various nail clients I see a confusion with the term 'gel'. Unfortunately there are basically 2 types of 'gel' nails out there.

Gel Nails - this is what I call a hard gel (it hardens to form a nail). It is used to extend and enhance the nail, much like acrylics do. This cannot be easily soaked off like the gel polishes.  It does come in various colors. I never saw the use for red or orange or whatever colored hard gel because to change the color I would have had to sand all of the gel nail off. Yikes!

These are the nails before gel enhancements

They are pretty, but as with acrylics they require retouches and some women out there do not want to do the acrylic/gel nails. Now we have soak off gel polishes for the manicurist to offer clients. Stay tuned for my post on this newest product for nails!
