Gel Extensions are nail enhancements, involving the application of a layer of thick transparent gel and set using a UV lamp. Enhancements are created as an option for clients wishing to transform their natural nails instantly for beautiful strong nails.
What are the benefits of Gel extensions?
These enhancements are great for protecting weak nails and prevent you from biting them (if you are a nail biter and want to grow your nails), they are natural looking, and you have plenty of colours and designs to choose from.
If you are allergic to chemical products gel extensions are suitable for you as they are odourless
Gel extensions are long lasting for up to two weeks and can last even longer if you keep up with maintenance appointments
How are Gel Extensions done?
Your therapist will firstly carry out a consultation with you to discuss your needs and the end results you are looking to achieve. The treatment is done by applying a thick transparent gel on to your nail bed and tip extension, then cured under UV lamp to set, lasting up to a good couple of weeks.
Is there anything I need to do before my treatment? Pre-care?
Your nails must be a normal length for this treatment. Extremely short nails will be difficult to do, also they will not last very long at all. Please make sure your nails are clean and free from any debris, and decide how you want your nails to look, we will try our best!
How old must I be to have this done?
From age of 12+ you can receive this service with consent of parent or guardian.
How long do Gel Extensions last for?
Gel extensionscan last up to 2 weeks. We recommend refills every 2 weeks for coverage of the regrowth and to maintain your nails and for longevity of your enhancements (at this point you can even choose a different colour!).
I don’t want my nails too long; I desire a natural length. Can I still have these done?
Yes, the therapist will carry out a consultation and the treatment will be done step by step. You will be in charge of your shape, length, colour and design.
How long will this treatment take?
Your appointment will ideally take around 60-80 minutes.
What should I be doing after my treatment, are there any restrictions?
For 48 hours, please avoid swimming, sauna, steam as the gel takes time to bond and harden further to adhere to your nail bed
Do not use your nails as tools this will damage and weaken them
Avoid using nail polish remover containing acetone
Wear gloves when performing household chores, gardening and use of chemicals
If your break a nail or if it comes off, please do not try to glue it back on yourself this could lead to infections
Keep up with maintenance appointments to keep your nails looking their best
Apply cuticle oil daily to prolong enhancements durability and flexibility and cuticle softness
