Bio Gel Nails

Beyond being a healthier option for nail lovers, bio gel nail extensions (tips) are easier and quicker to apply than acrylics. At Scorpio's we stock a variety of gel tips in different sizes and widths, so you can pick which gel nail tip best suits your own nails. While they do come in different shapes — square, round, or stiletto —we cut and shape them however you want.

Here's how it works: A thin layer of our best branded bio gel is used to apply the gel extension to your own nail. After doing so, you'll place your nail, with the nail extension on top, underneath the LED light. The gel will act as a bonder, curing underneath the LED light, so that the extension and your nail become one. As your natural nails grow, our bio gel product fills in any of the gaps, making the nail extension even stronger for another two to three weeks.


Gel or Dip Overlay Treatment

Nail overlays do not extend your nail, but do involve a strong, hard-wearing acrylic or gel being applied directly onto your natural nails and shaped by hand to give an attractive, neat look. They are then buffed to create a glossy smooth and natural effect. Providing an extra layer of protection if your nails are weak and prone to breaking, overlays are great if you *gasp* chew your nails, or generally have trouble growing them.

Shellac Nail Treatment

If you are someone who values durability and style in equal measure, then a shellac nail treatment might be the perfect option for you. Using a hybrid nail gel and polish formula, shellac nails can leave your unique and stylish designs intact for more than two weeks. The long-lasting nature of shellac nails make them the perfect choice for women who want to look their best but must also consider work and family commitments. A shellac treatment provides you with the best of both worlds.

Understanding the Difference Between Shellac Nails and Gel Nails

When it comes to nail treatments, it is often easy to throw all gel and polish based treatments into the same box and presume that there is no real difference between them. However, to do so, would be a big mistake. Shellac nail treatments not only contain a unique hybrid of ingredients that aren't replicated elsewhere, but they are also very different than gel nails and polishes.

At Scorpio's Peace & Polish we have lost count of the number of our clients who have actually wanted a shellac treatment but ended up asking for a gel nail treatment instead because they didn't realize these are two different treatments. And this is an easy mistake to make. Shellac treatments do contain gel, but this does not mean that they are exactly the same as gel nails. It is important to remember that a shellac nail treatment is a blend of gel and nail polish. The polish features of this treatment allow it to extend your nail, while the gel guarantees strength and durability. It is this winning combination that makes it such a popular choice among our clients. On the other hand, gel nails usually involve the use of different ingredients that aren't as refined as the shellac option.
