First of all, prepare the nails for the extension procedure. Cut them off and use a file to sand the nail plate well. This is done so that the gel does not flake off later. After that, apply a degreasing agent to the treated nails and leave it on for a few minutes, but no more than 5.
Carefully select the artificial nails (tips) for each finger. Apply a drop of glue to the first tip and place it on your nail. Press firmly and hold for a few seconds while the glue dries. Repeat the same procedure for the rest of the nails. Make sure that bubbles do not appear at the bonding site, otherwise the manicure will not last long.
When all the tips are glued on, take the tips cutter and with it, carefully cut them to the desired length. File the tips of the artificial nails with a file. After that, open the bottle of gel and mix it with a brush. It is only necessary to interfere with the part of the gel that will be used during the procedure.
Put some gel on the brush and start applying it to the nail. Try to distribute it as evenly as possible, while filling the space between the tips and the base of the nail so that the surface is flat. Place your hand under a UV lamp and wait a couple of minutes for the gel to harden.
After building up, treat your nails with a special degreaser to remove the sticky layer left by the gel polymerization. This will help to avoid the appearance of small dents on the nail plate.
It is possible to build up nails on forms. To do this, put a special stencil on the nail plate in such a way that its window is under the edge of the marigold. Apply the gel on top in an even layer and dry it under ultraviolet light. After that, carefully remove the form. Before this procedure, your nails must be long.
