Nail extension is a process where artificial nails are applied to the natural nail to create a longer, fuller look. There are many different types of artificial nails that can be used for this process, including acrylics, gels, and silk wraps. The type of artificial nails that is used will depend on the look that the person is going for as well as their budget.
The process of applying nail extensions can be done at a salon or at home. If you are doing it at a salon, the technician will first clean and prep your nails before applying the artificial nails. They will then use a bonding agent to secure the artificial nails to your natural nails. Once the nails are applied, the technician will then shape and file them to the desired look.
If you are doing the nail extension process at home, you will need to purchase the artificial nails and the bonding agent separately. You will also need to have a file and nail clippers on hand. The process is the same as if you were doing it at a salon, except you will be doing it all yourself.
