It has long been known that a manicure’s beauty is largely based on its quality of color.
However, the new study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, reveals that even when you’re looking at the same gel, the results can vary dramatically.
While the best gel manicurists tend to use a range of pigments, each one is designed to work on different skin types, said study author David Farrar, a professor of dermatology at the University of Florida.
The results could be of interest to patients with eczema or other skin conditions.
The gel formula is then used over a period of time to produce the perfect manicure.
Farrard and his colleagues tested 15 different gel formulas.
The most popular were all synthetic versions of traditional, natural, and natural-sounding ingredients.
All but one were labeled “natural,” which is usually the case for natural-looking ingredients.
However; some of the synthetic ingredients contained the same ingredients found in the natural ones, and some were slightly different.
The researchers found that, when using the synthetic version, gel manicured nails could deliver the same benefits but on a much lower price tag than the natural versions.
The synthetic version also had more pigments than the non-synthetic versions.
“In terms of the color, you’re basically looking at one of two things,” Farrars said.
“You can get a more natural look with a synthetic gel, or you can get the color that you’d get with a natural manicure.”
But the synthetic versions were more expensive than the other options, Farraris said.
The team also tested each gel formula in different skin conditions and found that a synthetic manicure could deliver a more accurate result in some cases, but not others.
For example, the synthetic gel manicuring had a slightly higher percentage of pigment in the inner ear and on the palms of the hands, Fars said, which is more visible than the more natural manicures.
The same was true in terms of texture.
The artificial gel manicurers did not offer any differences in texture, but the artificial versions tended to have a slightly more chalky feel to them.
“It’s really important to be able to see the difference between the two and really know what the product is going to look like for you,” Fars told The Washington Post.
Fars also noted that a gel manicural was more expensive to produce than a natural one, and was more likely to require a higher-quality paint job.
“If you have the right shade of a natural or synthetic, you could make a pretty good product that you can sell,” Fares said.
Although the synthetic manicures were not as good as the natural options, the researchers did find that synthetic versions had a higher percentage that had a more “natural” feel to the product.
They also noted there were some differences in the results.
For instance, the artificial version had less pigment in the eyes and lower percentage of pigment in parts of the skin.
Overall, Fares and his co-authors suggest that gel manicurs may be better suited for people with ecza skin and those who do not want to invest in a full manicure set.
However they do say that consumers should not expect a gel product to be perfect.
Fares told The Post that they would encourage people to try their own manicures to see how they performed and to determine what they might need to do to improve their nails.
The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health.
