What is the difference between nail polish and semi-permanent varnish?

Doing your nails safely at home is now possible with the Semi-permanent varnish. But why choose semi-permanent varnish and not use a classic varnish? In this blog, your nail supply expert Maryton will compare the 2 products for you to help you determine which is best for you.

Semi-permanent varnish, what is it?

The semi-permanent varnish is halfway between classic nail polish and gel nails. It combines the characteristics of these two products. To be able to perform a semi-permanent varnish manicure, you need an LED lamp. In this way, the semi-permanent varnish becomes hard.

What is nail polish?

The nail polish is thinner than the semi-permanent nail polish and dries naturally in the open air. If you want to give your nails a cool color, with this type of polish you won’t need an LED lamp.

The benefits of semi-permanent varnish

The biggest advantage of semi-permanent varnish is its longer life. A manicure with semi-permanent varnish stays at least 21 days. It is less sensitive to scratches and more resistant than ordinary nail polish.

Another advantage: as the product catalyzes in the lamp, there is no drying time. When your nails are done, you can just continue doing what you were doing without having to be careful not to ruin your polish.

The benefits of nail polish

A quality nail polish, combined with a good base coat and a top coat, lasts up to 7 days. The base coat also protects your nail, as nail polish can sometimes cause discoloration of the natural nail. Painting the nails takes less time than applying a semi-permanent nail polish. The nail polish air dries, so there is no need to use a lamp.

In order to make the final result more perfect, I advise you to invest in a complete manicure kit to care for your nails!
