UV/LED Gels are a versatile alternative to the traditional liquid/powder systems. These materials offer the benefit of reduced odor, quick application and natural appearing enhancements. Keystone Cosmetics & Sciences offers a full line of UV/LED, traditional, soak off and gel polish gels including base, builder, top gel and highly pigmented color gels for all nail art needs.

Gels come in many variations from low viscosity for base gels and top gels to high viscosity to sculpt long artificial nails.

There can be many differences between UV and LED gels but the big difference is in the photoinitiator. Keystone Cosmetics offers professional gel lines in UV curing, LED curing as well as the advantage of certain gels in both.
