Benefits of LED Light with Gel Manicures


Do you ever wish your polish could last more than a few days without chipping? Don’t you hate sitting under the nail dryer, waiting for your nails to dry? Well, here at Zazen Nail Spa, your frustrations can be solved with instant gratification by getting a gel polish added to your manicure. With Geleration by Jessica, you have the benefit of your color lasting up to 2 weeks without chipping and drying instantly. Unlike most salons, we cure the gel polish with a LED light instead of the controversial UV machines.

Benefits of the LED:

– Cures polish much faster than the UV machines

– Does not produce heat, which means the skin will not wrinkle nor darken

– Energy efficient

– Good for the environment. The mercury in UV lamps are harmful to the environment and to the human skin.

So if you were hesitant to try the gel polish because of the skin damage from the UV machines, you don’t have to worry about that at Zazen. However, the only downside to this service is that it doesn’t come off like traditional nail polish. To remove it, you have to soak off the polish with acetone for about ten minutes (which we can do free of charge).

As nail techs, we were never able to keep polish on with our hands constantly in water and polish remover. So we absolutely love having the gel polish to stay on our nails for more than 10 days!
