I recently got to try out the first and only hygienic gel available on the marketplace= ARTGENiC. ARTGENiC gels come from Japan, and are formulated with Nano Silver, which is said to posess natural antiseptic and antibacterial properties.
I LOVE this gel for so many reasons. First, it comes in professional jars, as opposed to the polish-style bottles. This means the nail technician has to paint on the gel, which allows for a more controlled application, and looks better to the customer. In addition, the jars allow you to you mix colors together easily to create new colors.
I have never seen gels in a jar that cure in both LED or UV light systems. This can save a lot of time when performing a manicure. Also this gel is highly fantastic for doing any nail Art related work! I did some various Union Jacks/British Flags as a quick demonstration.
The 3 gel colors I tried were:
Non-Yellowing White 001: classic pure white. Would be excellent to use in a French Manicure.
Forever Black 107: the perfect black.
XOXO 109: a deep dark red.
The formula was Excellent and self- leveling on all colors.
All swatches shown here have a Base G (clear base), 2 coats of color, cured each in an LED lamp for 30 seconds, and Brush on Top Gel.
