Perfect for strengthening and lengthening your natural nails, the application of extensions and sheathing are a good solution if you have fragile nails or if you do not have the patience to let them grow naturally.
How it works?
False nails offer two different techniques: the application of extensions and the sheathing. Extensions, also known as “tips”, are made of lightweight plastic and cut to the shape of your nail. They are then glued on your natural nails, then covered with acrylic or gel to fix them and sublimate them.
Acrylic consists of a mixture of polymer powder – polymethyl methacrylate – and liquid monomer – ethyl methacrylate. Exposed to air, this formula hardens in about 20-30 seconds and continues to dry for another 15 minutes. The gel sheathing is set in just 1 to 2 minutes under a UV lamp. The gel also damages your natural nails much less than extensions.
Is it for me?
Are extensions suitable for everyone? Yes, but they are not always indicated in all situations. During pregnancy, most experts recommend taking a break. It is always best to ask your prosthetist for advice on the maintenance of your extensions or your sheathing in order to prevent possible problems.
