Modern girls try to make their lives easier in many ways. One of these methods is gel nail extension. Many girls decide on him. I’m not an exception.
I hesitated for a long time, thought and nevertheless decided. I really like long nails, of course, the most comfortable length for me. But my nails constantly broke, and I decided to increase.
What is gel extensions?
In the salon, I was immediately offered exactly gel nail extension. You can choose any convenient length and shape. Natural nails are simply covered with a special compound – gel.
There are two types of such extensions.:
Using tips, when they are glued to natural nails, give them the desired shape, and then cover the entire surface with gel.
With the use of forms, when special forms are taken, which are enclosed under the tip, the gel is applied on top of the entire surface, then the form is corrected.
I used to build up nails with the use of forms, it seems to me that such an extension does less harm to natural nails.
Benefits of gel extensions
Today there are only two materials for nail extension: gel and acrylic. As I was told in the cabin, it is the gel building that has a lot of advantages.
Firstly, gel nails look more natural, which is an important condition for me personally.
Secondly, the gel does not cause irritation and allergies, and also has no sharp smell.
Thirdly, they say that the gel has a beneficial effect, strengthens the nails.
And, fourthly, if desired, gel nails can be painted with any varnishes, make different drawings on them, when removing nail polish on the nails there are no scratches. This, by the way, is also important to me. Walking for three weeks with one manicure would bore me.
By the way, now they are building biogel extensions. Biogel is more durable, plastic and at the same time not only safe, but also protects, nourishes natural nails.
Well, of course, everything cannot be perfect. This extension has a huge minus – the removal of nails. This procedure should be carried out only by the master, otherwise you can severely damage the natural nails. An experienced master gently remove the nails, while leaving a small layer of gel.
How long does it take to build and when to correct nails?
Going to the salon, you should be patient. The extension procedure itself can last from two to four hours. It all depends on the design of nails. And also from the experience of the master.
Correction should be carried out in 2-3 weeks. I wore these nails for a short time, took off during pregnancy. And while the kids are small, I’m not building up, although I think it is already possible.
- If you first made the extension, you will have to get used to the nails. For me, there was no inconvenience, I always tried to grow my own long, and then I just made not too long artificial nails.
- You need to be careful with your nails, do not open them cans and different packaging. You also need to monitor the nails when cutting products, of course, the nail does not cut off completely, but cracks can form.
- It is necessary to be careful of fire, nails can blacken from its influence.
- When doing any household chores, it is best to wear gloves.
- To remove nail polish, you need only liquids that do not contain acetone.
- Nail polish should be applied on a colorless basis.
- Do not forget to make a correction!
