Whether you’re a home user or a professional nail technician, the world of nail products can be a minefield. With all the different products, it’s hard to know which one to use just by name. In this article, you will be able to learn about the main qualities of each product and its purpose, and make a choice that suits your needs. Blue Ski sells four main nail extension products: builder gel, rubber gel, hard gel, and gel polish.
All products are UV/LED cured and each product has one of two main purposes. To make your nails longer or stronger. If you can use them to lengthen them, you can also use them to make them stronger. But just because a product makes your nails stronger doesn’t mean you can use it to make your nails longer! The exception is the solid gel. This can be used to create extensions, but only if it’s short.
Builder Gel, Gum Gel and Hard Gel are strong enough to build hair with chips or styling mousse. However, hard gels are the weakest of all and should only be used for short extensions. Gel polish is actually meant to add color to your nails, but luckily it also adds significant durability. It is not enough to make long nails. Before we jump into each product and how it works, let’s take a look at some of the different techniques you can use to lengthen your nails.
When building, there are several ways to increase the length of the nails. It is important to understand that not all products are suitable for all methods of building extension.
