Pros: Easy, quick, fewer chemicals, less chance of damaging your nails, often cheaper. Cons: Not long-lasting, easy to damage, no possibility of adding length.
Like anything, there are good and bad sides of choosing a classic manicure. Before you settle on it, you should be sure that it’s right for you.
Weighing out the options can either make or break a decision!
For the pros, convenience, and ease of application reign supreme.
A classic manicure is normally easy to apply, with no need for UV lights or setting powders. Polish is applied with a brush, just like your normal at-home job.
This often means that it’s a faster manicure, too, though the drying might take longer.
If you’re worried about a lot of chemicals, or something similar, you don’t have to! The polishes that are used are almost always the same type that you can find in stores.
In fact, many salons will let you bring your own polish! Because of this, you’ll often find that a classic manicure is cheaper overall than other options.
That, however, is not always the case.
Cons? There are a few. The biggest of which is the short lifespan of a classic manicure.
Because it’s only polish on your natural nails, you’re not going to get the same time between manicures as you would for gels or acrylics.
And the difference is substantial: A classic manicure might last a week, while acrylics can last as long as two months!
It’s also easy for a classic manicure to be damaged.
With just polish, any little thing can cause chipping, peeling, or other problems. While the damage is unlikely to hurt your nail itself (something that may happen with acrylics, for example), it will definitely shorten the wearing time.
