I still remember the first time I put on nail polish, and how my sister explained to me that I had to wear it properly. My older sister painted my nails for the first time, and I showed it to everyone. I wasn’t someone who had perfect nails before, but I had the best nails because of my sister’s advice and proper care. It was she who gave me the first nail polish. The first time I got acrylic was with my cousin, who was practicing on my nails, and it ruined my nail bed for a while. Since my sister told me that I had a sensitive nail bed, I stopped using it personally. If you don’t have a sensitive nail bed, you can opt for acrylic nails without any problem.
Nail enhancement is a good thing for those who want to optimize their natural nails by adding beauty to them. They are perfect for an everyday look or a special occasion, but they also allow you to get the most out of your nails. Nail enhancement has been around for some time now and has gained popularity in recent years as people try amazing and bizarre ways to extend their manicure’s life. Whether it’s a gel, soaking, or acrylic manicures, all create a type of artificial nail that is strong, durable, and lasts for weeks without chipping.
Gel nails are made from – you guessed it – gel, which is applied to the nail bed, and then hardened with UV light. Gel nails are used to make nails stronger or longer. Gel nails are healthy but just flexible enough to withstand an accidental bump against your desk without breaking the nail. The end result looks shinier than regular nail polish, so you can easily show them off at work or while you dance the night away! Your gel manicure is immediately dry, which reduces the risk of soiling after you leave the salon. Finally, gel manicures can be the perfect option for nail enhancement if you’re allergic to acrylic.
If you are unfamiliar with gel nails, be aware that gel nails and gel nail polish are two different things: gel nails enhance or lengthen your nails. In contrast, gel nail polish is a type of colored nail polish that lasts longer than standard nail polish and must be treated under UV light.
You’ve probably heard of dipping powder nail polish as it is trendy this year on social media. Dipping powder nails are an amazing breakthrough in nail technology that gives you beautiful nails that last – up to a month! Rather than polishing them, your color comes from a “dip” of powder applied by your technician between the base and sealant layers, giving you a beautiful color that lasts. Soaked nails are as durable as acrylics, but they are as flexible as gel nails. The solutions used are odorless and dry in a few minutes without UV.
Acrylic nails are as tough as – dare we say it – nails – made from a mixture of liquids and powders that lengthen your nails and give you spectacular results. Because of their strength, acrylic nails are stiffer and less flexible than some other options, but they last longer and are less likely to break. Acrylic nails can be placed as an extension or over the entire nail, depending on how you want it to look, allowing for flexible design options. Acrylic nails have a very natural look and can protect the nail underneath from damage.
All these options allow you to have beautiful and durable nails. So the best way to make a decision is to discuss what you want with your nail technician. Whatever your choice, never try to have your nails done at home – only experienced technicians can correctly perform the process. Always leave it to a professional to get the best results and keep your nails healthy! Nail enhancements can be used to strengthen your toenails, and the color lasts longer than standard nail polish.
