Gel Manicure. What is the best UV gel for nails?

 

 

Hybrid coatings may not always last flawlessly and as long as we would expect on a demanding nail plate. Gel nails are a great choice for all women who value long-lasting, impeccable results. Such styles are especially suitable for ladies struggling with weak, brittle, or splitting nails. The basic product that enables the creation of a professional gel manicure, both in the salon and at home, is high-quality UV gel. Which nail extension gel is best for beginners? How to extend your nails using it? Below you will find the answers!

 

 

What is a gel manicure?

Gel nails can be done on natural nails, tips, or a mold. The most important product used for this type of manicure is UV gel, which is cured under a special UV/LED lamp.

When opting for gel styling, we have a wide array of choices for the shape of our nails, as well as finishing elements. We can also extend them effortlessly by a few additional centimeters. There is also the option of embedding various decorations in the gel, such as 3D decorations, glitter, or rhinestones. This is why gel nails have recently become so popular, overshadowing hybrids, especially among women who appreciate creative, ornate nail styles and experimentation.

Properly performing a gel manicure involves applying a special mass to the individual nails (after appropriate preparation), which is then cured in a UV/LED lamp. Gel styles last several weeks. We should refill them depending on the individual growth rate of our nails.

 

What are the various stages of performing a gel manicure?

Proper, professional creation of gel styling will require from you or the stylist you go to, appropriate skills, considerable commitment, and extraordinary precision in action. Such a process can consume up to 3-4 hours of intense work.

The 7 stages of performing a gel manicure, or how to achieve the desired effect of well-groomed, feminine hands and nails step-by-step?

  1. After disinfecting the hands, remove the cuticles. Soften them adequately to proceed to their removal, e.g., using a nail drill.
  2. Shorten the nails to the desired length. Using a sanding block, take care of their matting and shape them as desired.
  3. Degrease the nail plate. If you are doing a manicure on natural nails, it's time to apply a primer. If you are using tips or a mold, skip this step.
  4. It's time for the gel. Apply the chosen gel in one or several layers, depending on the desired result. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to learn specific guidelines and find out, for example, how many seconds in the UV/LED lamp the product requires. Be careful not to flood the cuticles!
  5. After finishing the curing stage, give your nails the perfect shape using a nail drill or a file.
  6. Now you can finally start the long-awaited creative work. Create your dream styling, and match decorations, patterns, or stickers. Rely on your creativity and preferences to make your style unique!
  7. After finishing the work related to the nails, pay attention to minimalist but effective care by applying your favorite fragrant oil to the cuticles, and a richly nourishing cream to the hands – such as this one. Done!
