Gel Extensions provide the strength of acrylic nails with the appearance of a natural nail. A lightweight plastic plate which follows the shape of the natural nail is secured to the tip of the nail to add the desired length and shape. A gel mixture is then applied over the top of the extension and cured under a UV lamp to secure in place, adding strength and shine.
As well as looking more natural, Gel Extensions are entirely odourless and are much kinder to your nails. Acrylics can cause damage to your nails because your nails are left unable to breath beneath the acrylic. Gel Extensions on the other hand contain strengthening and growth promoting ingredients which benefit the health of the nail bed. Being odourless Gel Extensions are suitable for pregnant women.
Overlays are similar to extensions but they rather than using a plastic plate to extend the nails, a gel is applied directly to the natural nail and is shaped by hand before being buffed to create a glossy effect. Overlays create strength and length to nails.
