ARTGENiC the hygienic Gel!!

ARTGENiC the hygienic Gel!! 0

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.

I recently had the privlidge of trying out the latest Fall 2013 collection of gel polishes from nsi.  I must say I was very pleased with the color offerings this season.  Also, 4 out of 6 colors in this collection are what I call “1 Coat Wonders”– by this I mean with one polish coat, the color is entirely opaque and perfect, this saves not only time in performing a manicure, but it also saves $$$ because you save on product amount used!!

Over the Knee: a multi-shimmer glistening metallic gunmetal with blue undertones. A “1 Coat Wonder” !

Dramatic Rush: a deep dark sultry burgundy red.

Restrained Glamour: a cosmic metallic purple/silver. A “1 Coat Wonder”!
