Gel nail extension is a method of applying hard gel to a natural nail and curing it using UV radiation.
To lengthen the length of the nail, the manicurist employs a nail form, which is essentially a sticker that fits beneath the free edge (tip) of the nail, to extend the length of the nail.
This new Gel X procedure is being used by top manicurists. Manicurists are saying It's an already sculpted full soft gel nail tip that you fix on the natural nail using gel, available in a variety of sizes and forms, including stiletto, round, coffin, and square. This form of manicure is even faster than a normal gel extension construction.
The only need is that your nails are not chewed through to the quick. Meaning Your nail has to have a little length for the gel x extension, not a lot, but just a little. If the nails are too short, the extension won't be able to adhere to them.
