Hi My Lovely Readers,
I know many of us have short nail beds and always wanting to have that long strong nails doing some nail art occasionally to enhance the beauty of your hands. I had tried to use different nail oils to grow my nails long but I dont know why, I always use to fail terribly and again come back to my short nails which I always hated.
For about a year, I’ve wanted to try out fake nails. Like, really fake. I’ve long been a proponent of exaggerated nail art, even going so far as to have mini chains embedded over a gel mani once, just to match my favorite gold bracelet. But long, squared nails were something I’d lusted over yet never really approached. Everyone from Kylie Jenner to Rihanna—even subdued stars like Adele—have been sporting them. There’s something so glorious about the look, and I’ve noticed many women (my friends, celebs) have started wearing eye-popping extensions, so it had me questioning if they’re starting to become the new normal.
Since I’ve never tried acrylic nail extensions ever, I called up Nail Lounge, a nail bar in Mumbai/Thane to make an appointment.Acrylics are applied with powder and UV, and are “refilled” as they grow out, while nail extensions are soaked off and reapplied as a new set to allow your natural nails to grow underneath.
BEFORE NAIL EXTENSIONS
When I went into the salon in Thane, the nail tech did all the basic mani procedures (cut, trim, buff, oil, and all that) before looking closely at my natural nails to see what shape nail extension she should apply. There are several different options, which are chosen based on the natural curvature of your nails. As a side note, the nail techs at Nail lounge keep your nail size on file, so that if you come in again, the process will go faster. The nails came in a long, rectangular shape and were clear. She applied them with an industrial-strength glue, and then asked me for my preference in terms of length and shape. Obviously, I wanted to keep them as long as possible, and opted for the square shaped style that I’d been dreaming of. Lastly applied my choice of nail color with some hint of nail art.Gel extensions give a super glossy finish to the nails and have a natural look. They will last up to 3 weeks and you will need to return to have them in filled.
AFTER NAIL EXTENSIONS
The procedure was pretty much the same as you see on any you tube channel. But the best part about this salon is the quality of the products which they use is extremely of high quality which helps you giving stronger and good looking nails. I also felt the price being paid was all worth the money.
PRICE: Starting from 2000 INR
Nail Extensions help conceal or fix broken, damaged, short, or bad nails. It prevents breakage of nails, and protects splits. It is a great advantage for people who are not able to grow the length and strength of natural nails that they desire.
Problems that I faced :
- It was bit of difficult to do everyday household works initially as I always had short nails, since the nails were strong it did not give a cut or anything.
- Typing was bit irritative.
- Removing the nails was a big mess.
- You need to keep cleaning your nails often as there are chances of dirt getting deposited easily.
- You need to be little careful with your nail as it can hurt if your nails go through any punching bags.
Overall, I loved the look of my extensions. It’s not something I’d want every day, but there’s just something so fun about looking down at long, glittery claws as opposed to ho-hum nails with boring polish. I was also way more excited as people were staring at my long new nails which almost looked so natural and classy. I would definitely recommend everyone to have this luxurious experience to your nails to feel good once in a while.
