Analiese PolyGel was inspired by a desire to create a product that keeps everything nail techs like about acrylic and hard gel systems while removing the aspects they don’t like, according to creator Danny Haile. Here’s what you need to know about the innovative new product.
Step by step instructions for PolyGel
The liquid used to sculpt Analiese PolyGel is called Slip — the name was inspired by the slip potters use when working with clay. Slip is not a monomer; it has no active ingredients, and unlike acrylic monomer, it has a light, pleasant fragrance. It’s simply used to make the Analiese PolyGel easy to shape.
Unlike hard gel,Analiese PolyGel is not self-leveling, but stays where you place it; unlike acrylic, it doesn’t harden until it’s cured in an LED or UV lamp.
Cure time is about 30 seconds in an LED lamp or two minutes in a UV lamp.Analiese PolyGel nails do not experience heat spikes during curing. There is no tacky layer after curing.
Analiese PolyGel is more flexible than acrylic, stronger than hard gel, and lighter than both, according to Analiese color gels.
The product can be applied as an overlay over natural nails, a tip overlay, or sculpted over a form.
It’s available in six colors: bright white, natural clear, soft white, soft pink, dark pink, and cover pink.
Gel-polish colors can be applied over the product, and Analiese color gels can be mixed with Analiese PolyGel to create a design.
Natural nail prep is the same as prep for gel. Nail techs can use an e-file or a hand file to shape the product.
The product should be filed off, not soaked off. Nail techs can soak to remove the remaining product after filing.
Analiese PolyGel nails can be rebalanced the same way acrylic or gel nails are rebalanced.
