Gel Nail Extensions 101: Everything You Ought to Understand

Posted by vivek choudhary on February 11th, 2022

Gel extensions are one of the multiple popular and loved ways to get longer and stronger nails nowadays. Although every length and shape gives us tons of possibilities in the nail department, sometimes the goal is to add durable length tips to the end of each nail or even provide more room for nail art and polish in general. That\'s when they come in handy.

This nail technique could very well be the answer to our beauty-inspired prayers, but of course, it has its pros and cons. Just like acrylic nails (one of the first salon-approved ways to extend your natural nail), it may last for up to four weeks, but both have a reputation for being damaging. That\'s why it\'s essential to understand what they are before deep-diving into the nail extensions Dubaiworld.

What Are Gel Nail Extensions?

Gel nail extension is a process that involves hard gel built on a natural nail and cured with UV light. The manicurist uses a nail form, a sticker that goes under the free edge (the tip) of the nail, to extend the length of the nail. 

Top manicurists also rely on a newer method. It\'s an already shaped full soft gel nail tip that you secure on the natural nail with gel. They come in different sizes and shapes like stiletto, round, coffin, square. As it doesn\'t need filling, it’s even quicker than the actual gel nailingextensions at home Dubai.

The only prerequisite is that your nails can\'t be bitten to the quick. In addition, your nail needs to have a little length for a gel extension, not a ton but just a bit. If your nails are too short, there isn\'t anything for the extension to stick to.

The Advantages

  • Lengthy and robust nails.
  • Weightless nail tips.
  • A more comfortable and more immediate removal procedure.
  • Safer and more beneficial than acrylic nails. 

The Drawbacks

  • Can weaken nails over time
  • It might not work well on too short nails

How Are Gel Nail Extensions Applied?

When it comes to either getting a box of pre-shaped gel nail extensions Dubaior creating them, the nail technician needs first to prepare the nails (file, clean, and buff nails). Then, the expert applies a form underneath the natural nail to create the length one by one with a gel builder, a gel primer, and a gel top coat, letting them dry under the LED or UV light.

If a pre-shaped kit like Apres Gel X is used: The second step, I use a bonder (this dries your nails) and a primer (this makes your nails sticky), so the gel can stick to it. All these products come with the kit. Third, apply a gel layer to the actual nails and let them dry in light for about 60 seconds. After choosing which size fits the client\'s actual nail, I apply the gel to the inside of the best nail extensions Dubai and place it on the actual nail. Now it\'s time to press down and hold, then sit in the light for 60 seconds.\" Poof! Nails are ready for your favourite polish and nail art.
