Made of 100% real gel from base to top, it is the smallest nail salon in the world. This is the promise ohora made to you. Whether or not ohora semicured gel nail strips really look like a nail done in a salon is the biggest question for our first time users, so we did a little experiment. We literally hosted a one on one match between a nail artist and ohora on the same nail design and asked the participant to judge on several criteria. Yup, let’s cut to the chase and see it for ourselves.
Ta-da! Take a guess which hand is which!
The answer is written there on the video, and we can hear your doubts all the way from here.
So we’ve prepared a time-lapse video for you here.
Now it’s the time for the truth. Let’s hear the verdict out.
Round 1. Thickness & Gloss TIE
As you can see on the video, it’s quite difficult to tell the difference between the work of a nail artist and ohora, and so did our judge! ohora is made of real gel nail polishes, made of layer to layer from base to top, so basically it is a real gel just in the form of a ready-made strip. After curing, ohora not only gives you the customizable fit that no stickers can give you, but also creates a dashing gloss and thickness that only a real gel nail can bring to you!
Round 2. Price ohora WIN
According to our nail artist, the design in the video charges about $50~$70, depending on the type and number of gems used. Then how much was the box of ohora used in the video? Only $17! A box of ohora provides 30 strips, and since you can stretch or cut to fit your nail size, you can use a box of ohora more than one time! ohora can be easily removed without a visit to the salon for soak off, hence another win on that point as well.
Round 3. Durability DEBATABLE
When properly applied, ohora gel nail can last up to 14 days. Although a thick gel nail done in a salon lasts forever, and for some of us it just never comes off, the participant called it debatable because this could either be an advantage or a disadvantage depending on where you’re standing. A regular gel nail polish does last long, but it doesn’t mean that it stays the same way you came out of salon with. It gets dirty, chipped, and above all is not recommended for you to keep a gel nail longer than 2 weeks to maintain healthy nail condition.
Furthermore, a nail design is part of your daily styling, so amazing durability can be an awful downside to whimsical minds. ohora on the other hand, is a perfect choice if you do not want to miss on both the incomparable quality of a real gel nail and TPO styling.
Round 4. Damage ohora WIN
Nothing is free in this world, and the durability of a gel polish comes with matching downside – nail damage. Not to mention it is so difficult to remove it yourself. Either soaking your nail tip in acetone cotton puff for half an hour or getting yourself a nail drill, the chances are, it does leave much damage to your nail. In order to remove ohora, however, you only need a wood stick and acetone remover. Just soak the wood stick with acetone and push gently from the edges. No need to wait out for your nails to recover, you can move on to the next design of your choice!
Round 5. Convenience ohora WIN
The most important round, we might add. You can say goodbye to the days when your DIY nails had bumpy surfaces or left messy polish stains on your furniture. While realizing complete gel nail quality, all things needed to achieve that look – time, cost, and even effort – is almost gone!
Overall, ohora’s victory. Don’t get us wrong, we love getting our mani-pedis done in the salon oursevelves. It’s more than just a nail design, but rather a moment of self treat, or precious time spent with your friends. However, ohora do believe we should be able to enjoy quality nails regardless of time and space, and hence brought the smallest salon just for you. Whichever your choice would be, a little beauty treat for yourself can go a long way – and VANITY TABLE is honored to be there with you!
