False nails, what are they?

False nails are artificial nails that are placed on your natural nails in the institute using false nail glue. On these false nails, it is not only possible to work on the shape, but also the color of the gel or varnish that will be placed on the nails. You can also choose decorations to adorn your nails. False nails are now made of resin, acrylic or gel. Let’s take a closer look at these different techniques together!

Acrylic resin false nails

The main difference between resin false nails and gel false nails is their ability to dry in the open air, without the use of a UV lamp. After washing your hands, your beautician pushes back your cuticles and files your nails before placing the false nails on your hands. Finally, the varnish of your choice is applied to your false nails.

The main advantage of false nails is that they can be worn for a long time because they are quite strong. However, their strength means that they are not flexible enough and can give the impression of being thick.

Gel false nails

For gel false nails, a layer of gel is deposited on the nail. This layer of gel is then worked to be uniform over the entire nail before being dried under a UV lamp.

Gel false nails offer a shinier and more natural end result than acrylic resin false nails. They can be kept between 3 and 4 weeks depending on the speed of regrowth of your natural nails. To remove the gel from your nails, simply file it down and dilute the residue on your nails.
