People are increasingly opting for gel polish, but is it good for nails? Like anything, semi-permanent varnish has its advantages and disadvantages. In this article, the nail supply expert Maryton will tell you the main advantages and disadvantages of gel polish.


  • The natural nail plate is reinforced.
  • If the manicure is done well, it will not flake or lift.
  • Semi-permanent varnish gives a natural look to your nails.
  • The gel polish lasts well on your nails for 3 to 4 weeks, depending on the application technique and the pressure put on your nails.
  • Gel polish is less expensive than other artificial nail application techniques.


  • Some people may be allergic to certain ingredients in gel polish.
  • Applying semi-permanent varnish takes more time than regular nail polish.
  • Gel polish is more difficult to remove than regular nail polish and requires the use of a nail file or sander, or the soak-in method with remover.
