It so happens that your own nails to grow difficult, because they are too brittle, or there are any defects. In this case, the women come methods of nail extension.

Before you go to the master for a nail, you should decide which method and type of nail to use. In modern cosmetology uses the following methods of increasing the nails on tips and forms. Nail extensions on tips based on the mount to the plastic plate nail - tips with a special glue.

The shape and size of tips are different, so you can choose them individually for each nail. They also differ in color, they are transparent and white. In some cases, can be colored tips. After tips will stick to a natural nail, shape the length and shape, then the entire length is applied a material of acryl or gel. After polymerization of the material on the nail decorative pattern is applied at the request of the client.

Another way is to increase the nails on forms. Forms can be disposable paper or reusable metal. These forms are attached at the free edge of the nail, then they material. After it dries the form is removed, and the artificial nail to the desired shape and length. After polishing the nails is applied to the image and fixed.

The most modern way of nail extension is capacity liquid tips. This method is, that in a reusable mold is filled with gel, it is 2/3 is superimposed on the natural nail. Gel tips polymerised under UV lamp for about two or three minutes. After this reusable form is removed, then the nail podpilivaya and polished. In addition, it is the fastest way to nail.

The types of nail extensions vary depending on the material used. Acrylic coating based on a mixture of acrylic powder and liquid is a special liquid. In the case of using acrylic for nail is of particular importance, the skill of the wizard, as the material must be applied very quickly. Acrylic mixture tends to quickly dry out.

Acrylic nails have the advantage of their special strength. With proper care they can last up to four weeks. In addition, they look quite natural. The main disadvantage of this material is an unpleasant odor when the procedure of nail extension, because in the mixture there are many chemical acids that come into contact with the surface of the natural nail, and this, in turn, can lead to the deterioration of his condition.

Gel, unlike acrylic, some environmentally friendly. This is sometimes called a resin because 60% of the nail gel is made from pine resin. He skips through the air, the moisture and natural nails do not spoil. In modern cosmetology used acid-free gels. After applying this gel on the nail it must be dried under UV lamp. The advantages of gel nails is their beauty, and also that on their basis you can create incredibly beautiful pictures, such as holographic, aquarium effects and decorate your nails with rhinestones, crystals and other things.

Drying under the UV lamp prevents the appearance and development of various fungal diseases. The disadvantages of the gel is the fragility and brittleness of the fingernails as a result of sudden temperature changes. Gel nails are not subject to correction, in case of any defect will have to grow new nails. Such nails it is not recommended to remove at home, as you can seriously damage the nail plate.

Some manicurists combine technology acrylic and gel. Also now quite popular nail extension with Biogel. Biogel does not contain toxic substances, being practically organic material. However, a disadvantage of this technology is its fragility, from the bio-gel nails will last up to two weeks.

When you nail as the natural nail will eventually begin to deteriorate. Therefore, I recommend at least once a year to remove artificial nails and one month to provide rest to the natural nails. In addition, artificial nails are exposed to sea water, so going to a summer vacation, you can rest and nails.

It is best not to do nails at home. This work is quite complex and requires special skills, so it is best to trust a specialist.
