How Gel Nail Polish Works: The Science Behind Brunson’s Gel Nail Polish Collections

Brunson offers a wide variety of Gel Nail Polish collections, each designed to give you long-lasting, beautiful nails. But what exactly makes gel polish different from regular polish? Today, we’ll take a closer look at the science behind these amazing products.

Have you ever wondered what makes gel polish so different from regular nail polish? The key lies in a fascinating scientific process called polymerization. Unlike regular polish, which dries through solvent evaporation, gel polish undergoes a chemical reaction, creating a super strong and long-lasting layer on your nails.

Here’s a Closer Look at the Magic Behind Gel Polish:

The Building Blocks: Gel polish contains two crucial ingredients: monomers and photoinitiators. Monomers are like tiny building blocks, each waiting to connect with others to form a larger structure. On the other hand, photoinitiators are light-sensitive molecules that act as catalysts, waiting for the right signal to activate.

Light Activates the Magic: When you place your hand under a UV lamp during a gel manicure, the UV light triggers the photoinitiators. These light-sensitive molecules break down into free radicals, which are highly reactive particles seeking to bond with anything they come in contact with.

Building a Strong Foundation:  Imagine these free radicals as overzealous construction workers. They bump into the waiting monomer molecules, setting off a chain reaction. The monomers rapidly connect with each other, forming long and strong polymer chains. Think of these chains as building a sturdy bridge on your nails but on a microscopic level.

Curing for Perfection: The UV light exposure plays a critical role in this process. It fuels the chain reaction, ensuring the bonds between the monomers are strong and long-lasting. As a result, a hard and durable layer forms on your nails – that’s your cured gel polish!

The Science Behind the Benefits:  This Polymerization Process is What Gives Gel Polish its Key Advantages:

Long-Lasting Wear: The strong polymer bonds created during curing resist chipping and wear and tear, allowing you to enjoy your manicure for weeks on end, unlike regular polish that can chip easily.

High-Gloss Finish: The cured gel polish forms a smooth and even surface that reflects light beautifully, resulting in that signature high-gloss shine that regular polish often struggles to achieve.

So, the next time you admire your beautiful gel manicure, remember the fascinating science at play. It’s a testament to the power of light and clever chemistry that allows you to achieve stunning and long-lasting nails.

How Does Gel Nail Polish Dry?

Unlike regular polish that dries through evaporation, gel polish doesn’t actually dry in the traditional sense. Instead, it cures using the light exposure mentioned earlier. The UV light activates the photoinitiators, triggering the polymerization process that we discussed. This process essentially cures the gel polish, transforming it from a liquid state into a solid, hard layer on your nails. The curing time can vary depending on the UV Lamp and the specific gel polish used, but it generally takes only  30-60 seconds per coat.

How to Remove Gel Nail Polish?

While gel polish offers long-lasting wear, eventually you’ll want to remove it. It’s important to remove gel polish properly to avoid damaging your nails. Acetone is the most common solvent used to remove gel polish. Here’s a general overview of the removal process always consult the instructions for your specific gel polish and follow safety precautions.

    • File the top coat of your gel polish to break the seal.

    • Soak cotton balls in Acetone and place them on each nail.

    • Wrap each fingertip in foil to hold the cotton in place.

    • Let the polish soak for 10-15 minutes, or until the polish loosens.

    • Buff your nails to remove any remaining residue.
