Après Gel-X nail extensions – A new nail craze

Après Gel-X is the world’s first and only soft gel nail extension which is incredibly fast and easy to apply. No filing needed, no dust, no odour and minimal damage to the natural nail.

 

Après Gel-X nails are applied over your entire nail bed. The extensions are clear – which means they can be used to create trends like seaglass nails – and come in different shapes, sizes and lengths. Après Gel-X nail extensions are made from the same gel that’s in polish. This means they’re a lot thinner, more flexible and – best of all – more natural-looking than traditional extensions.

 

How are they applied?

After your nails are prepped, the extension is then applied with a layer of clear gel polish, which is cured under an LED lamp to bond it to the natural nail. Once bonded, the extension can be painted just like a normal manicure with gel polish or normal polish.

 

How long do they last?

Après Gel-X extensions grow out over the course of about 3-4 weeks just like any manicure would along with the natural growth of your nail.  While acrylic extensions have a similar lifespan, the regrowth is much less noticeable with Après Gel because they’re much thinner and do not lift at the edges.

 

How are they removed?

The correct removal process is important to make sure that your natural nail doesn’t get damaged. Après Gel-X nails are made from gel, so are removed just like a gel manicure – the top layer is broken with an electric or manual file before being soaked off with acetone.

 

Are they safe?

While all nail enhancements have a risk of damaging the natural nail – especially if they’re not properly removed – Après Gel-X nails do not contain the harsh chemicals that acrylics do and are healthier for your nails.
