Gel nail extensions
Gel nails – flexible nail extensions
Gel is derived from the same chemical family as acrylic, but it is differently processed. Gel hardens with the help of UV light, so every layer has to be cured in a UV/LED lamp. The hardening process causes heat release, so client might feel heat sensation for a brief period of time. When nails are thin and damaged heat sensation is felt more intense, so it is not recommended for someone who has sensitive nails. Most gels have to be filed off when they need to be removed. Gel doesn’t have strong odour, is a softer and more flexible product, if compared with acrylic.
