In the modern world, biogel nail extensions are becoming increasingly popular. This excellent tool will not only increase the length of the nails, but also improve their condition.
Benefits of using biogel
Bio gel for nails is absolutely safe, it does not harm the nails, as it consists of natural ingredients, and even useful if the procedure is carried out regularly. It does not cause allergies and does not damage the nail plate.
Biogel — the most sparing material today for strengthening and building nails, while nails look as natural as possible. Another positive point when using biogel is the simplicity of the procedure, as well as the fact that you can easily purchase materials for building up biogel in any specialized store, which will allow you to independently do nail extension with biogel at home.
What do you need to build biogel?
In order to perform biogel nail extension at home, you will need:
- degreaser with disinfectant action (acetone can be used);
- primer without acid;
- finishing gel to add shine and fix the result (you can use transparent nail polish);
- nail files with an abrasive coefficient of 100-180 and buffs 240-500;
- UV lamp;
- brushes for application from synthetic pile No. 6-7.
Step-by-step instructions for nail extension with biogel
Step 1. To begin with, we will treat the nail plate and the skin around with a degreaser. Then push back the cuticle.
Step 2 We give the nail the desired shape with a nail file. Then lightly sand the nail plate to remove shine. We remove the dust and again treat the nails with a degreaser.
Step 3 Apply a primer to the nail and dry it a little.
Step 4 We apply the first thin layer of biogel, trying to seal the edge of the nail, and dry it in an ultraviolet lamp for 1-2 minutes. After that, we apply the second and subsequent layers, each time drying the nails for 1-2 minutes under the lamp. Apply 3-6 layers in total, depending on the desired thickness of the finished nail. Dry the last layer for 3-5 minutes.
Step 5 At the last stage of nail extension with biogel at home, we apply a finishing gel, which also polymerizes in an ultraviolet lamp for 2 minutes. If the finish gel is replaced with a colorless nail polish, then the last layer is simply enough to air dry.
Step 6 Use a degreaser to remove the sticky layer and apply cuticle oil. Nails are ready. After that, you can proceed to the design of nails.
Biogel extension on forms and correction
Biogel extensions look natural, so you can easily make a design called “French manicure” or French manicure on your nails.
At the request of the client, the manicurist can create bio-gel extensions on the forms using special paper forms. This blank is superimposed on the prepared nail and fixed under its edges. The gel nail dried with an ultraviolet lamp is given the required length and the desired shape.
After 2-3 weeks, you need to make a manicure correction. This is due to the growth of the nail plate. Or you can simply remove the biogel and repeat the coating procedure. Biogel is removed by soaking with a special liquid, which includes essential oils that provide additional nail care.
As you can see, the biogel extension procedure at home is affordable, not very complicated and does not require special skills, and the result will be neat and well-groomed nails that delight their owner.
