Gel Nail Polish

What is the difference between UV and LED lamps?

The UV (UltraViolet Light) nail lamps are the industry standard. These lamps will cure all different brands of UV gel nail polishes, with each coat taking approximately 2 minutes to dry. LED Lamps +£10 (Light-Emitting Diodes) have the ability to cure gel nail polish at a quicker rate of 30-40seconds per coat, making them much more time effective. NYK1 Nailac polishes work perfectly with LED Lamps, however not all gel polish brands are LED compatible. The design of LED Lamps allows them to be much more compact, whilst never having to replace the bulbs like in some UV Nail Lamps.

Will TanForce cover skin blemishes like freckles, age spots etc - completely ?

Our lovely Self-Tan is water based and very natural when developed, we always advise one layer to start with and then check the colour, then re-apply if you want a deeper colour. The Tan is not a 'cover up' so would not completely disguise these but the tan would of course tint the skin and make the blemishes less obvious.

Do you need to exfoliate and moisturise the whole body before application or just dry areas like the knees elbows etc?

You can always exfoliate the whole body, if its your first time use, you may prefer not to moisturise and just apply one layer of tan so you can be sure you get the correct colour, its much easier to add to than take away. If you feel that some areas (knees/elbows/feet etc) have too much tan after the first application, then an expert tip is to use a moisturiser on these areas to block the tan. Depending on your skin type depends on the overall end result, if you have quite pale skin, 1 layer is perfect may be enough for a natural glow. If you want a darker tan then simply apply an extra layer.

Can I still get a sun tan or does it block the sun?

Yes you can! NYK1 TanForce, self-tan gives a natural glow to skin, it contains no SPF, therefore you just use your sun cream as normal to build on your tan!



Is this product tested on animals?

None of our products are tested on animals. NYK1 are true animal lovers and would never, ever condone animal testing.

Does LashForce alter eye colour at all?

No it does not alter eye colour, it thickens and lengthens your lashes. Although it can darken your lashes a little which would enhance your natural colouring of your eyes.

How long is it before you notice a difference in length in your eyelashes?

Some customers have noticed a difference in as little as two weeks. However, this can vary from person to person, on average most people notice a difference within four weeks . Sometimes it can take a little longer as long as you give the product some time to work, you will notice a difference, (So will your family and friends!).
