Halo is applied like polish with a base coat, two coats of gel polish and a top coat. Between each coat of gel polish, the nails are cured under a UV light. This gel formula delivers a long lasting, flawless finish that’s dry in seconds and protects the natural nail. We do recommend having a Prescriptive Manicure or Pedicure with all gel treatments.
Halo gel polish is perfect for people with really strong nails naturally, or not wanting to maintain the up keep of having gels on there nails. We explain to our customers its a long lasting nail polish.
If your seeking help to grow your nails and would like longer lasting gel we would reccomend Clagel . Please see below.
Both gels are fantastic but do very different jobs. Please call the salon if you need any more advice and we would be happy to explain more.
PLEASE NOTE: If you have acrylic nails on or gel that isn’t Calgel or Halo and would like them soaking off, we advise you to go back to the salon you originally had them done. We will not be able to soak them off and that may result in refusing service unfortunately. All salons use different products and they may use a different method of removing.
CALGEL® is a professional only one-step gel system available to certified technicians only. It is a long-lasting gel that be applied directly to the natural nail with no primers or bonders. Due to its flexible nature, CALGEL® doesn't chip and offers up to six weeks of colour. It soaks off easily with no damage to the natural nail. Suitable for vegans & not tested on animals.
CALGEL does not prevent nail growth and provides beautiful, long lasting and glossy nails, for up to six weeks. Its damage free soak off has gained a strong reputation since its introduction; CALGEL is a true one phase soak off gel.
CALGEL is extremely hard wearing; its strength is in its flexibility as it acts as a shock absorber on the natural nail, removing the risk of chipping and cracking. This allows movement with the natural nail and reduces the possibility of breakage and snapping.
CALGEL is permeable system, that allows moisture to pass through the layers of the gel, this moisture can evaporate helping to prevent lifting and for maximum adhesion. As CALGEL doesn't interfere with the natural metabolic activity of the nail; no ‘break’ is needed between treatments and one can infill up to three times before requiring a soak off. After proper removal, the natural nail will be damage free!
