french nail extension

French manicure as a time-tested classic remains one of the most popular types of nail design. It is not surprising that French is also popular when building nails, and different techniques (building on tips or forms) and materials (gel or acrylic) are used to create it.

French acrylic nail extension

Consider the sequence of nail extensions using acrylic powder:

  1. Hands are treated with a disinfectant, the cuticle is pushed back with a spatula. The pterygium is removed with tweezers, after which the edge of the nail is filed, creating a beautiful “smile line” and the nail is treated from above, removing the natural shine. Such preparation is performed as standard, regardless of the French nail extension technology (gel or acrylic, on forms or on tips).

  3. Nails are treated with a dehydrator, and then with a primer. Forms are attached to the fingers. The brush is dipped into liquid, and then into acrylic powder, forming a neat ball — smooth, without bumps and roughness. For a classic design, white powder is used. If you thought about a colored jacket, nail extensions are performed with powder of the desired shade.

  5. The ball is placed in the middle of the form so that it does not go on the surface of the natural nail. The material is laid out in one direction and the other, modeling the “smile line”, as well as the length and width of the free edge. By pressing the brush, they achieve alignment of the material throughout the form and from the ends. With a dry thin tip of the brush, the final correction of the “smile line” is performed.

  7. A medium-sized ball of pink or clear acrylic is spread over the top of the nail. A slightly larger ball is laid out immediately at the “smile line”, and acrylic is distributed over the entire nail. The final smooth and even shape of the coating is given by pressing on the brush. After the material has «grabbed», the form is removed from the finger and the «antennae» of the smile line is clamped for 30 s, forming a C-curve.

Gel nail extension in french style

The technology described above is generally similar to the gel extension technique, which is carried out in the following sequence:

  1. The nail is prepared, degreased.
  2. The base gel is applied, dried for 2-3 minutes in a lamp.
  3. Gel for nail modeling is applied, the same amount is dried.
  4. The sticky layer is removed, the free edge is filed to create a beautiful “smile line”.
  5. The modeling gel of white color spread on the substituted form. Dry for 3 minutes, remove the sticky layer.
  6. The nail is filed, polished, top coat is applied.

According to a similar scheme, gel nail extension is performed on French-style tips: the nail bed is prepared, degreased. Glue is applied to the contact area of ​​the tips and attached to the nails, after which the length and shape are adjusted using a file and special tongs. When the tips are ready, the gel is laid out on it with drying of each layer in the lamp.

Each technology has its pros and cons. For example, acrylic requires oil polishing to give it a nice sheen (ideal is top coat acrylic nails), but the edges of the nail can be tucked in to give them a more elegant look. Gel nails shine beautifully due to the finish, but it is impossible to tighten them, and if tips are used, the look may not be very natural. Acrylic is stronger than gel, it dries faster and takes less time to model. The gel, on the other hand, requires a special lamp for polymerization and takes longer to lay out.
