Nails

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. Acrylic, gel, fibreglass or another mixture is then applied on top of the extension and is usually 'cured' in order to secure the extension and add strength and shine.

Women are spoilt for choice when it comes to getting their nails done, so when it comes to booking your appointment, how do you know what treatment to go for? Before you make your decision, continue reading to find out all you need to know about :

ACRYLIC NAILS
Acrylics are the oldest form of nail extension in the modern beauty industry, and have long since been a staple due their staying power. The acrylic itself is a mixture of liquid monomer and a powder polymer, which when combined form a hard protective layer that is sculpted over the natural nail.

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 usually applied in very fine layers, with the nail technician 'curing' or 'sealing' 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.
