Pros and cons of gel nail extensions on forms
Many people are interested in the following question: "And what, in fact, does nail extension on gel forms mean?" This is an increase in the length of the nail bed with the help of a special chemical. After such an extension, the nails acquire additional strength and a beautiful, well-groomed appearance. Now consider all the positive and negative sides of gel nail extensions. The advantages include the ability to give the nails a beautiful shape, make them shiny and more natural in appearance. And the disadvantages should be considered the fact that ifa crack will appear on the artificial nail, then, unfortunately, it is almost impossible to repair it later. Another very unpleasant aspect is the removal of the gel from the nail plate. The fact is that this substance cannot be washed off with special means and it remains only to cut off the surface of an unnatural nail, and such a procedure (if the manicure master is incompetent) can lead to the plate becoming thin and brittle.
The recovery process after such an unsuccessful extension can take you from a month to six months (depending on the severity of the damage). But this will not threaten you if you responsibly treat the choice of a master. Now, having weighed all the positive and negative qualities of such a procedure, you can decide whether to do gel nail extensions on forms or not. Let's move on to the procedure itself.
