The extended nails made on the basis of the gel are very beautiful, have a glossy appearance with a natural shine, their structure is similar to that of a natural nail. There are many advantages, but there is an unpleasant moment: gel nails sometimes crack.
Cracks on gel nails can be caused by poor-quality work of the master, his low qualifications. A qualified nail extension specialist must have all kinds of certificates, diplomas of completion of specialized courses. The use of low-quality material in work also causes the gel to crack the next day. It is usually used in "economy class" salons.
Gel nails are very fragile. A slight mechanical impact is enough to crack the extended nail. They need to be protected from various bruises. If this happens, then it is no longer possible to repair the nail: it needs to be removed and a new one should be built up. It is better to avoid self-withdrawal, let professionals do it.
A natural nail can crack under a cracked extended nail. It is quite difficult to remove a gel nail - it is very long and tiring. It cannot be cut off with scissors (it may crack), but you need to gradually file it off, and this is not a very pleasant procedure for the mistress of the nails. After removing the gel, the natural nail is first cured, given a rest, and then extended again.
The gel nails are quite thick. With the regrowth of a natural nail, a noticeable border is formed, which must be constantly corrected (apply an additional layer of gel). Untimely correction will lead to a shift in the center of gravity of the extended nail. This can damage it, so it is necessary to periodically return the center of gravity to its original position.
Sudden changes in temperature, taking hormonal drugs or antibiotics can provoke a violation of polymerization, which will certainly lead to a crack in the nail. It is necessary to avoid visiting saunas, baths, walking without gloves in winter, and to limit the intake of medications.
