Before you go to the master for nail extensions, you should determine which way and type of nail extensions to use. In modern cosmetology, the following methods of nail extensions are used: on tips and on forms. The extension of nails on tips is based on fastening to the nail of plastic plates – tipes special glue.
The shape and size of tips are different, which allows you to choose them individually for each nail. They also differ in color, they are transparent and white. In some cases, there may be colored tips. After the tip is glued to the natural nail, form its length and shape, then the entire length of the material is applied from acrylic or gel. After the polymerization of the material, a decorative pattern is applied to the nail at the request of the client.
Another way is to nail extension on forms. Forms can be disposable paper or reusable of metal. These forms are attached to the free edge of the nail, then the material is laid out on them. After it dries, the mold is removed, and the desired nail is given the desired shape and length. After grinding, the picture is applied to the nails and fixed.
The most modern way to build nails is to build on liquid tips. This method is that a gel is poured into the reusable mold, it is applied to the natural nail on 2 / 3. Gel type is polymerized under an ultraviolet lamp for about two or three minutes. After that the reusable form is removed, then the nail is filed and polished. In addition, this is the fastest way to build nails.
Types of nail extensions vary depending on the material used. The acrylic coating is based on a mixture of acrylic powder and liquid – a special liquid. In the case of using acrylic for nail extensions, master craftsmanship is of particular importance, since the material should be applied very quickly. Acrylic mixture has the property of quickly withering.
Acrylic nails have the advantage of being particularly strong. With proper care, they can last up to four weeks. In addition, they look quite natural. The main disadvantage of this material is an unpleasant odor in the procedure of nail extensions, because the mixture contains a lot of chemical acids that come into contact with the surface of a natural nail, and this, in turn, can lead to a deterioration in its condition.
Gel, in contrast to acrylic, is somewhat greener. This method is sometimes called resin, because 60% of the nail gel is made from coniferous resin. He lets through the air, moisture and natural marigolds do not deteriorate. In modern cosmetology, acid-free gels are used. After applying this gel to the nail, it must be dried under an ultraviolet lamp. To the merits of gel nails is their beauty, as well as the fact that based on them you can create stunning in their beauty drawings, such as holographic, aquarium effects, as well as decorating nails with crystals, crystals and other.
Drying under an ultraviolet lamp prevents the emergence and development of all kinds of fungal diseases. The drawbacks of the gel include fragility and brittleness of the nails as a result of sudden temperature changes. Gel nails are not subject to correction, in case of occurrence of any defect it is necessary to increase new nails. Such nails are not recommended to be taken off at home conditions, as you can seriously damage the nail plate.
Some masters of manicure combine technology of acrylic and gel. Also now it is rather popular to build nails with biogel. Biogel does not contain toxic substances, being practically an organic material. However, the shortage of this technology is its fragility, nails from biogel last for a maximum of two weeks.
With the build-up of nails, the state of the natural nail will deteriorate with time. Therefore, recommend at least once a year to remove artificial nails and one month to rest natural nails. In addition, accrued nails are exposed to sea water, so, going on vacation in the summer, you can give rest and nails.
It is best not to build nails in Home conditions. This work is rather complicated and requires special skills, so it's best to trust the specialist.
