Gel-X extensions have the malleability of a soft gel polish and the length of a press-on or glue-on nail. The extension is made out of gel polish which is applied directly on top of your full natural nail and can be cut and shaped to your preference
Unlike acrylic or hard-gel extensions, Gel-X tips don’t just sit at the tip of the nails. Instead, they cover the entire nail bed from cuticle to free edge. We offer various sizes of full-coverage tips, which allow you to customize the ones you use based on the size and shape of your finger. While they do come in different shapes — square, round, or stiletto — you can cut and shape them however you want. You can also pick from short, medium, long, stiletto, coffin, round, or square shapes.
Once you’ve selected the shape and size of your nail, your natural tips are prepped with a pH bonder and nail primer. Then, your nails get one coat of a thick, clear gel which is cured under a LED lamp. When your natural nails are cured, it’s time to secure your extension. This is done by adding more of the Extend Gel polish to the inside of the tip (the side sitting on your nail) and curing it with the LED lamp. The clear gel product fills in any of the gaps, making the nail extension even stronger, similar to an acrylic.
