Difference between semipermanent and reinforced semipermanent
Anyone who runs a beauty salon or nail salon knows how important it is to expand the range of services offered and also include semipermanent nail polish and reinforced semipermanent nail polish to your menu. These two types of treatments offer a long-lasting, high-quality solution for your clients, allowing them to enjoy a flawless manicure that lasts for weeks without chipping or fading.
Let’s look at the differences between semipermanent and reinforced semipermanent and how these two solutions allow you to meet the different needs of your clients.
Semipermanent nail polish has become increasingly popular in salons among clients who want a long-lasting manicure and a professional finish. This type of glaze combines the advantages of traditional glaze and acrylic, providing a durable and long-lasting solution that can last up to two weeks without chipping or fading.
One of the distinguishing features of semipermanent nail polish is its ability to harden under a UV or LED lamp. This process, called curing, makes semipermanent nail polish extremely resistant to scratches and bumps, providing long-lasting protection for nails. In addition, semi-permanent nail polish has a special formula that contributes to greater adhesion to natural nails, reducing the risk of premature flaking or detachment.
Understanding the full potential of this solution, how to put on semipermanent nail polish? In order to apply semi-permanent nail polish optimally, you can turn to our LACTUBE™, the professional nail care system. The handle, which evokes that of a pen, allows for quick and controlled application of the glaze, optimizing product handling.
LACTUBE™ is a precise, ergonomic and hygienic tool: in fact, unlike traditional glazes, it not only has soft, controlled-release silicone bristles, but also reduces the possibility of contamination from external agents or from previous applications. High-pigment colors ensure a glossy, shiny result for more than 3 weeks.
The LACTUBE™ COLOR line includes 42 colors and 4 collections a year-they are ultra-pigmented, first-pass opaque formulations that will give your hands a manicured, healthy look.
Reinforced semipermanent is an even more versatile solution as it allows the combination of protective and aesthetic functions.
As the name suggests, one of the distinguishing features of this treatment is the use of products with specific formulations that help strengthen and protect natural nails. These ingredients may include substances such as keratin, collagen, vitamin E, and other nutrients that promote nail health and growth.
Theapplication of reinforced semipermanent nail polish is done with a procedure similar to that of traditional semipermanent nail polish. After nail preparation, primer is applied, which contains strengthening ingredients, promotes nail polish adhesion to the nail and creates an even surface. Next, colored semipermanent nail polish is applied and cured under a UV or LED lamp. A top coat can be added to complete the application.
This treatment is especially good when your client has:
- brittle nails;
- Tendency of nails to flake off;
- nails that are already severely compromised when they show up at the salon;
- Nails thinned by previous treatments performed with aggressive products.
- a particularly dynamic lifestyle, does manual labor;
- a life that leads her to often have her hands wet or in water (e.g., hairdressers, cooks, etc.);
Keep in mind, too, that strengthened semi-permanent nail polish can promote nail growth: the nourishing ingredients in the formula improve nail health, stimulate keratin production, and promote natural nail growth. This is an advantage appreciated by those who desire longer and stronger nails.
It is important to note that despite the benefits, reinforced semipermanent nail polish cannot solve more serious or pathological nail problems, such as ingrown nail or fungal infection. In such cases, it is advisable to consult a trained professional for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
Whenever you are faced with brittle nails with a tendency to break or flake, our LACTUBE™ line is an invaluable ally for nail care and making hands flawless: the Base Coat, Color Coat and Top Coat, when used in sequence, allow for a manicure with reinforced semipermanent that satisfies even the most demanding client.
Contrary to what you might think, those who choose reinforced semipermanent nail polish do not have to give up a natural result: thanks to the use of our products you can ensure a bright effect, without the nail looking overly thick.
