Can the sun fade gel nails?

If you’ve been on holiday with a gel manicure you may have discovered that some shades of gel nail polish can fade in the sunlight. Gel polish will only really fade with extensive exposure (like a week long holiday in the sun) but it is more noticeable with brighter pinks and coral shades.
