Inhibition Layer

The tacky surface left on the nail after a UV gel has cured.


Short chain of monomer liquids that is often thick, sticky, and gel-like and that is not long enough to be considered a polymer

One-color method

When one color of gel, usually clear, is applied over the entire surface of the nail.


The amount of colored pigment concentration in a gel, making it more or less difficult to see through.


A chemical that initiates the polymerization reaction.

Pigmented UV gels

Any building or self-leveling gel that includes color pigment.

Soft UV gels

"soakable gels"; these gels are removed by soaking in acetone.

two-color method

A method whereby two colors of resin are used to overlay the nail.

Unit Wattage

The measure of how much electricity the lamp consumes.

Urethane Acrylate

A main ingredient used to create UV gel nail enhancements

Urethane Methacrylate

A main ingredient used to create UV gel nail enhancements

UV bonding gel

gels used to increase adhesion to the natural nail plate.

UV building gels

Any thick-viscosity adhesive resin that is used to build an arch and curve to the fingernail

UV gel

Type of nail enhancement product that hardens when exposed to a UV light

UV gel polish

A very thin-viscosity UV gel that is usually pigmented and packaged in a pot or a polish bottle and used as an alternative to traditional nail lacquers.

UV gloss gel
