GEL X AMERICAN: WHAT IS GEL X AMERICAN, THE REVOLUTIONARY GEL NAIL TECHNIQUE WITH CAPSULES

WHAT IS THE AMERICAN POSE?

The American application is a method of applying false nails which is done using capsules made entirely with gel. This technique differs from installation with stencil, the application of which requires a construction gel, and from installation with classic capsules.

The application of Gel What we like about Gel X is that there is little building work.

As the capsule has a rounded shape and an already adapted length, there is no need to work on it. The capsules are installed with a soak off gel, a gel that dissolves with acetone. So, when removing, no need for a nail grinder. This is practical when you are not equipped.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF AMERICAN POSE?

However, although X gel is not dangerous for health, there are contraindications. The use of this type of false nails is not recommended for children under 16, pregnant women and people awaiting surgery. Furthermore, some people with sensitive skin may experience some side effects: eczema, bacterial infection or tingling in the fingers. But rest assured, this only happens very rarely.

CAPSULES FOR AN AMERICAN POSE

For the application of X gel, we do not choose just any capsule. This must above all be soak-off. For information, the soak-off capsules are removed on contact with acetone or a melting liquid. Compared to traditional capsules, they are particularly thin and flexible.

The capsules used for applying gel X also have a ready-made shape. Precisely, in terms of shape, they come in many models. There are short, long, square, stiletto, ballerina or almond shapes.

HOW TO DO AN AMERICAN POSE?

  • We start by washing our hands and disinfecting them using a disinfectant spray.
  • We proceed to prepare the nails: we remove traces of nail polish, we push back the cuticles, we file the nails to prevent them from breaking, we apply a degreaser and finally we put a desiccant on the natural nail .
  • Choose the right size of capsules so that they are suitable for each of your nails. In general, there are 10 different sizes in a capsule box.
  • For better hold, mattify the inside of the capsule with a bit sander. Conventional files are ineffective for this process because they cannot access the inside of a capsule with a convex shape.
  • No need for regular maintenance.
  • Gel is placed at the base of the capsule. Be careful, it must be neither too little nor too much.
  • We stick the capsule on the nail, starting with the cuticles. To avoid any infiltration, you must ensure that there are no air bubbles.
  • Removal can be done at home by just applying acetone.
  • The capsule is catalyzed under a UV lamp for a few minutes, which allows the American X gel to harden the nails.
  • Once the application is complete, you can file the shape if you wish or do nail art.
