Mirror chrome ~ Gel polish Stunning chrome effect powders put on top of Gel polish, to transform your nails into magical wonders that fairytales are made of.
Nail Gel Extensions ~ A lightweight plastic plate that follows the shape of the nail is glued to the tip of the natural nail in order to add length. Gel is then applied on top of the extension and is ‘cured’ in order to secure the extension and add strength and shine.
Nail Gel Overlay ~ Overlays skip the extension step, and instead of adding artificial length onto the nail, the strengthening mixture is simply applied directly onto the natural nail in order to add strength and durability.
Nail Gel Infills ~ After around 2-3 weeks you may need to return to your the salon for a ‘maintenance’ appointment or ‘infills’. The infill process will generally involve filing out the re-growth area flush to the nail so that the gel can be reapplied, filed, buffed, coated and oiled so that the nails look as good as new once again.
What are Gel nails? ~ Gel is a special mixture that is applied either on top of an artificial nail extension, or directly onto the natural nail bed to strengthen the nail and promote natural growth. The gel is applied in very fine layers, with the nail technician ‘curing’ the gel with a UV light between each layer so that the finished result is hard but still flexible with a natural looking glossy finish which is both instantly dry and chip resistant.
Whilst gel can be applied on top of an artificial extension to add length, they are particularly good for individuals who have very short, weak or bitten nails because they allow the nail to strengthen and grow below the layer of gel.
Gel does not cause damage to the natural nail and can be used to strengthen, protect and promote growth in the natural nail.
Gel is odourless unlike some acrylic or liquid powder nail systems. Gel is also more flexible
Nail Gel Extension removal ~ Gel nails should always be removed by a nail technician these need to be filed & buffed off.
Nails ~ Naturally have a low oil and moisture content so they become dry and brittle. Cold weather, central heating and hard water take their toll, so it’s important to condition your nail bed and cuticles to prolong the life of your polish. Rub cuticle oil into the base of each nail as nourishment. Not only will it keep your cuticles soft and subtle, it will also smarten up the skin around your nails.
