Founders of Light Elegance
Light Elegance’s Lezlie McConnell recalls her introduction to the nail industry.
The products now include cool-curing resin technology that eliminates the uncomfortable heat spikes.
Before there was gel-polish, there was gel. Making its debut in the mid-1980s, this product was designed as an enhancement for clients who desired a glossy, durable finish. While many clients might think there is a big difference between gel and acrylic, gels actually rely on ingredients from the acrylic family. Perhaps the tougher distinction to make is between hard (traditional) and soft (soak-off) gels.
