Everything You Wanted to Know About Gel-X Nails

Chances are you’ve probably tried a standard gel or acrylic manicure in the past. If you are looking for a Gel X Nail Salon near me, you've come to the right place for more information. Gel nails are extremely popular due to their ability to stay looking great for a week or more without chipping or breaking, while acrylics give you the appearance of long, perfectly shaped nails with the same long-lasting abilities. Though pricier than a regular manicure, gel and acrylic nails are often worth it for the long-lasting effect. After all, when you get a cute new mani, you don’t want it to chip the moment you walk out of the salon.

There is, however, a downside to faux nails. The state of your natural nails when you take them off can be seriously diminished and damaged. Enter Gel-X. Gel-X manicures are a fairly new type of nail treatment that give you the strength of gel and the length of acrylics, minus the damage to your natural nails.

What Is a Gel-X Manicure?

Gel-X is a full-coverage soft gel extension service. Gel-X allows you to create beautiful and durable extensions easily and quickly. Essentially, Gel-X is a full-coverage gel that has already been sculpted while off of the hand to create a full nail extension with gel when applied. Since the Gel-X nail tips are pre-formed to your preferred length and shape, the application process is quick and easy.

How Does a Gel-X Manicure Differ From Acrylic Nails?

When it comes to a Gel-X manicure, both the application process and the actual extensions themselves differ from acrylic nails. The difference between acrylics is that Gel-X is an already pre-done nail that soaks off every three to four weeks. You don’t need to apply, then cut and shape like you do with other nail tips or extensions.
