Your French manicure will last for about 4 weeks. Then, if you want to continue to glorify and strengthen your nails, you’ll need a refill.

Semi-permanent nail polish application on your hands and feet

Semi-permanent nail polish is a half-polish, half-gel formula which dries on your nails under a LED lamp. It will last about two weeks on yours hands and about a month on your feet and the appearance is similar to regular nail polish. The application technique doesn’t require any sanding down of the nails. Semi-permanent nail polish is only applied on natural nails. The OPI brand is well-reputed! It’s the leader in the global market and their products won’t harm your nails.

How it works

The application is preceded by a classic manicure: nails will be filed and equalised, cuticles pushed back, nails cleaned and pampered before the polish is applied. Four layers of nail polish are applied - a base, two coats of polish and a top coat. The only thing that’s different to regular nail polish is that after each layer is applied, you’ll put your hand under a LED lamp for 30 seconds to dry (or catalyse in technical language) the semi-permanent nail polish. We’ll finish up with an oil application on your cuticles and moisturiser on your hands (or your feet). It’s all done in thirty minutes!

How to choose between semi-permanent nail polish and gels

For people wanting to strengthen their nails and looking for the result to last for as long as possible, gels are the best bet. Gels will also be the best solution for nails which have been bitten or are very short and need lengthening. Gel application won’t damage the natural nails thanks to the know-how of your nail technician and if she uses good-quality, acid-free products. Your natural nails aren’t harmed. It’s true that once gels are removed your nails will be slightly weakened but with the application of nail treatment, the nails will be strengthened and return to their natural state.


Shiny and flawless nails that last for a long time and won’t chip. The result is perfect and the layers of nail polish are un-chunky. There’ll be no need for retouching. How long the semi-permanent nail polish lasts for depends on the natural state of the nails, their length and their usage... On average, 2 to 3 weeks on your hands and one month on your feet.
