Nail extensions are the solutions for those beautiful ladies who desire to have long nails but couldn’t have them grown naturally due to various factors like vitamin deficiencies, breakage, weak nails and who have a bad habit to chew their nails. The artificial nails are not a replacement, but an extension for natural nails. There are three main approaches to creating artificial nails—Acrylic, Gel, silk or fiberglass extensions.
Acrylic Nail Extension ( Duration 180 minutes )
The acrylic nails are created by mixing liquid monomer and a powder polymer, which when combined form a hard protective layer that is sculpted over the natural nail. These nails become hard when exposed to air. Instantly great looking, nice long length, holds polish much better, very strong.
Won't chip and no need to constantly touch-up polish, Nails always look nice with no daily fussy routine.
Acrylic nails, in most cases, are the strongest semi-permanent nail extensions available
Acrylic extensions are good for women with brittle and weak nails.
Gel Nail Sculpture ( Duration 120 minutes )
Nail extensions are sculpted on the original nails by placing a form beneath to customize required shape and length (optional), using semi solid gel. This semi-solid gel scultpture is later cured under UV lamp, cut, filed and shaped according to customer’s request.
Gel nails last for a longer period of time than other artificial nails.
Gel nails do not produce any odor while sculpting.
There is less filing and shaping required during application
Application times less compared to Acrylic extension.
Gel/Acrylic Tip overlay extensions: ( Duration 90 minutes )
An artificial half tip will be pasted on customer’s natural nail to give the impression of longer nails, which will then be shortened, filed to requested length and thickness. Above this artificial nail an overlay coating of gel or acrylic will be added.
Infills: filling in grown out gaps in between cuticle and acrylic/gel.
Fingernails grow at an average rate of 3mm/month and the beautiful designs done will be pushed downwards, hence infills are done by filling in this gap in between to cover up the grown out portion.
