How to make nail extension? How to do nails quickly and painlessly?

Upper forms for nail extension open us completely new possibilities in the nail service.


How did the upper forms appear?

We all remember that happy, carefree time when being children, we played in the sandbox, collected wet sand in various molds, overturned them and sculpted cakes. A simple game loved by all children. Even in childhood, it was clear to each of us that sculpting a beautiful and even cake on our own is much more difficult than just pouring sand into a ready-made mold and turning it over.

Now imagine how great it would be to transfer this method to the nail service by applying something similar to nail extension! Imagine how much easier the process of making nails would be if we had a mold prepared in advance for each nail, in which it would be necessary to put the gel and turn it over onto a natural nail! Then, after waiting for the material to dry, remove mold and get a ready nail, shiny and smooth! Is it possible?

Upper forms - a new tool for working with familiar material!

The traditional process of modeling a nail is quite complicated and requires some preparation from the manicurist. The process of filing is quite unpleasant and dangerous. Unpleasant because easily flying dust is formed, which can even cause allergies. Dangerous because in the process of working with a file, the master can touch the sensitive skin near the client's nail.

Working principle of upper mold technology

First, it is necessary to make a standard preparation of natural nails. After that, suitable upper forms for each nail are selected. A form is taken and the required amount of gel is laid out in it. The polymerization process usually takes several minutes, depending on the gel used.

After the polymerization is completed, the upper form is easily separated from the cured material. The resulting nail does not require filing, its surface is even, smooth and shiny. A beautiful arch has already been created, a stress zone has been formed. The nail is made this way thanks to the inner surface of the upper form and can be worn for 4 weeks.

Nail design on upper forms

Making a design is always a complicated procedure, requiring skills and patience from the manicurist. In beauty salons, you need to pay extra for a nail with a design, and often a lot of money. The technology of nail extension on the upper forms can significantly facilitate this work and expand the possibilities of design.

With upper forms, the possibilities of design are limited only by the imagination of the master! Big decorative elements, dry flowers, various glitters - all this can be easily used to create a wide variety of designs. In a classic variant, such elements are very difficult to lay out so that they do not stick out of the surface of the nail. With the upper forms, everything is different: thanks to the surface of the form, you can lay out almost any design in several layers.


Advantages of the upper forms:

1. Filing, the most unpleasant and dangerous extension procedure is excluded.
