3 Tip Nail Polish Guide, and Your Trending Autumn Colours!

Nail Polish

Whether you are heading to our beauty salon or giving yourself an at-home manicure, you have probably noticed that there is more than one type of nail polish to choose from. If you are unsure of the differences, read along and consider these types.

3 types of Nail Polish

Basic Nail Polish

This is the traditional formula that you have been using since you were a child. There is a vast variety of finishes – from matte to natural, to glitter, to holographic. These nail polishes are not long-wearing and you can probably expect them to last a week or so.

Gel Polish

Gel nail polish has become very popular in recent years for its long wear. It is a hard gel applied by a nail technician over your bare nail. An ultraviolet light is used to cure the polish. This polish has the ability to last for up to 3 weeks! What makes it an awesome option is the fact that it can be used to extend nail shape and length.


Another well known nail enhancing polish types are acrylic nails. A nail technician will apply a combination of liquid and powder over your bare nail. As it dries acrylic polish hardens and can be filed down to hearts content. These acrylic nails are another good options for extending nail length and will last around two weeks.

How to make your nail polish last longer than 3 days!

  • Opt for shorter nails
  • Reapply a topcoat every two to three days
  • Apply cuticle oil and cuticle cream
  • Make use of gloves when washing dishes
  • File the chipped edges and layer with a topcoat
