Is gel nail polish bad for your toenails?
Just like fingernails, gel polish isn’t bad for your toenails if you have followed proper nail prep, gel polish application and removal. If ever in doubt, check our How To pages for our recommended routines.
Is it bad to wear gel nail polish all the time?
No, wearing gel polish all the time isn’t bad for your nails if you’re following all the correct routines for prep, application and removal. In fact, wearing gel polish can help to protect your natural nails from everyday wear, allowing them to grow underneath the polish.
