Gel Nails on the Boise Bench

Types of Gel Nail Services at Perpetuity Skin + Spa

Gel manicures have become the gold standard for long-lasting, chic manicures, and gel nails at Perpetuity Skin + Spa have never been more popular. What started as a UV-cured polish only available in salon has since evolved into an industry of its own. Here at Perpetuity Skin + Spa, you can choose the type of gel manicure based on your wants and needs—from soft to hard gel, Gel X to Luminary. But what’s the difference?? Here’s a brief rundown of the options you have when booking.

Gel Manicure/Pedicure or Gel Fingers/Toes
Gel manicures have become a staple here at Perpetuity Skin + Spa due to their durability and retention. Regular gel polish is the most common type, known for its glossy finish and easy removal process. A manicure or pedicure here involves water, cuticle care, exfoliation, hydration and polish. The difference between a full manicure and what we call “gel fingers” or “gel toes” is truly down to timing. If you just want your polish updated and your cuticles cleaned up, this is the services for you. Got more time or more issues with dryness or calluses? Go for the full manicure or pedicure. All these treatments leave you with fresh, adorable gel nails.

Hard Gel
A hard gel is a building gel, and it offers a smooth and flawless base. The long-lasting nature of builder gels allow you to enjoy your manicure for an extended period without worrying about chipping or peeling since the natural nails are thinner and more prone to breaking. Overall, builder gels not only to enhance the health of natural nails but also provide versatility and durability. If you’re very hard on your nails, and even gel manicures get chipped, hard gel can keep your nails fresh for much longer.

Gel X
Gel X allows the nail technicians at Perpetuity Skin + Spa to create beautiful and durable extensions easily and quickly. Since the Gel-X nail extensions are pre-formed to your preferred length and shape, the application process is quick and easy. A Gel-X manicure gives you the best of both worlds in that the extensions are strong and long-lasting. Have an important event coming up and you want long, beautiful nails? A Gel X manicure is a great option for you.

Luminary Manicures
Need more strength, but not as much as hard gel? Or just trying to grow out your nails and need some extra support? A Luminary Manicure is a great option because Luminary is a multi-flex gel that provides the strength of acrylic and flexibility of hard gel to create manicures that LAST. The type is is ideal for growing natural nails because it is a universal base that allows our nail techs at Perpetuity Skin + Spa to apply only one product to create beautifully structured manicures. The benefits of getting a Luminary manicure are that the gel reinforces your natural nail allowing it to grow longer, stronger, and healthier.
