What kinds of products are wrap resins and no light gels?


Wrap resins are adhesives used with a wrap nail enhancement system (silk, fiberglass, or linen). It is used to coat and secure the fabric to the natural nail and tip. Wrap resins are usually made from cyanoacrylate, and they need an activator (either brush-on, drops, or spray) to polymerize.

“No-light gel” is a marketing term used for some long-lasting nail polishes (usually consumer brands) that promise a salon-quality “gel-like” manicure that lasts longer than traditional nail polishes and is air dried, therefore no need for a UV/LED lamp. However, I have also seen a couple of brands advertising their wrap resin as a no-light gel.
