Semilac "HARDI" Collection

Semilac HARDI is a line of building soft gel Soak Off Gel / Hybrid Nail Polishes that is appropriate for week and damaged nail plate. It can be used to extend and add the nail plate.

Semilac Hardi is a great alternative to traditional gel. Works great if you need to repair or extend only one or few of your nails. Hard is a good solution when you are going on the trip or party.

You can also use Semi Hardi to strengthen your nails without the extension so you can enjoy beautiful and resistant to breaking nails.


In Line Semi Hardi there are four colors:

SEMI HARDI CLEAR - colorless soft gel polish ideal for use in a week plate. It can be used to extend the nail plate.

SEMI HARDI MILK - pink/milk soft gel that is ideally suited as a primer for pastel and neon colors. Perfect texture makes the gel / hybrid nail polish very malleable, which allows you to control the entire application process.

SEMI HARDI ROSA - transparent pink soft gel with the same properties as the other products in this series. Perfect for french manicure.

SEMI HARDI WHITE - the white soft gel perfectly enhance the saturation of neon & pastel colors. It can also create a white line in styling french smile line. Plastic consistency for easy application.


The manufacturer guarantees a 3 mm extension but we see all over the internet that 1 cm is also doing great. Remember Hard is not a hard gel. It is more soft and flexible on the nails than hard gel. It is also sensitive to changes in temperature, color cosmetics and various kind of detergents.

Semi Hardi has a thicker consistency than Semilac gel / hybrid Nail Polishes by what may be faster dissection, especially when standing unused for some time. In this case just roll it slowly and mix thoroughly to return to its original consistency.

Hard soft gels obviously differ in color. When choosing, consider what you would like to do next with your nails. If you want to paint them in neon or pastel colors for summer, you should choose Hardi Milk or Hardi White because they are going to perfectly strengthening their saturation.

In case of French Manicure choose Hardi Rosa and for smile line Hardi White.

Go for Hardi Clear if you are more experience with building gel on the nail form because it is the thinnest soft gel in consistency. We recommend to beginners to choose Hardi Milk which is definitely thicker and it has color so it is easier to work with it.



You can paint classic nail polish over cured and cleaned Hardi. And if you are going to remove the color with no acetone nail polish remover you can change the color even a few times :)
