Acrylic or Natural Nails?

Benefits to each option

Are you debating between keeping your natural nails and getting acrylics for the first time? There are pluses and minuses to both types. However, usually one will be a better choice for a person.

Acrylic nails are much sturdier and may be better for people who have very weak nails. Also, if you bite your nails, it will be a great way to stop. But, they are very high maintenance. Generally, you need to go to the nail salon every two weeks for a fill or a back fill. This can make keeping up your nails quite costly. However, acrylics may tend to look nicer on some people's nails.

Natural nails have more of a tendency to break. You may always be bothered by a new chip or peel in your manicure nearly right after every time you get a manicure. This can be extremely frustrating. But, you can usually last longer in between manicures with natural nails than with acrylics. Also, it is easier to touch up your nails or change the color of your nails at home with natural nails. It may be a better idea to keep your nails natural if you are content with the way your nails look without acrylics....

How To Apply Gel Nails

Step-By-Step Guide to Gel Nails

The first ten steps in preparing to apply gels nails are the most important as these steps will determine success or failure:

1. Clean your hands and spray with anti-bac.

2. Push the cuticles back with an orangestick.

3. Lightly buff the shine off the nail with a 100/180 grit file.

4. Apply the tip. Ensure you have selected the correct size for each nail, do this first and lay them out from large to small for each nail. Cut the tip to the desired length.

5. Run line eliminator across the seamline of each tip and blend with a file.

6. Gently buff the shine off the tip (do not do this if you are using airbrushed or tips with a design, only do this for natural coloured tips).

7. Remove all the dust from your nails with a nail brush.

8. Spray the nail again with Anti-bac.

9. Apply nail prep to the natural part of the nail - this removes the excess oils from the nail plate. Allow to thoroughly dry.

10. Apply a dab of primer to the centre of each nail on the natural nail part. Be careful not to get this on the cuticles and only a sparingly small amount is required. Allow to dry thorougly. The primer sets down the chemical base for the gel to adhere to.

You are now ready to apply the Gel:

1. Follow the preparation process as per acrylic nails.

2. Apply a thin coat of gel to each nail on one hand at a time. You only need a small amount of gel on the brush.

3. Turn the hand upside down for 20 seconds, this allows the gel to centre

4. Be sure not get any gel on the cuticles because if you cure it with gel on the cuticles this will cause lifting. To remove excess gel around the cuticles use a orangewood stick to run around the edge of the cuticle to remove it.

5. Depending on the size lamp you have:

9 Watt Lamp - 3 minutes for each coat - one hand will take 6 minutes because you can only do four fingers and then you will have to do your thumb separately as it is impossible to get all five fingers under the lamp comfortably.

36 Watt lamp - first coats (before final coat) 90 seconds curing time.

1. Do not wipe off the sticky residue or touch your nails yet.

2. Continue to apply thin coats and cure, we recommend at least 3 coats.  When you have cured the last coat you then wipe off the sticky residue with Cleanser Plus and a lint free cloth (I use a cotton ball soaked in Cleanser Plus).

3. Thin coats are better than thick coats, a thick coat may not cure properly.

4. To clean your br...
