When choosing a styling method that meets your expectations, you have a really wide range of possibilities in terms of materials, techniques and methods to use. Here's a short guide to the most frequently performed types of manicure!
Considered to be the basic, and the easiest to make. You can do it on your own, or at a very low-cost get it done in a beauty salon. Briefly, a traditional manicure consists of the preparation of nail cuticles using e.g. tweezers and a file, and then the application of the selected traditional nails polish.
Unfortunately, this type of manicure, although simple and quick in execution, guarantees impeccable appearance only for maximum a week. After that, the nail polish begins to flake off or it may chip. Which means, the manicure will require corrections or it will need to be performed again.
It's a procedure aimed at improving the condition and appearance of the natural plate. The cuticles are prepared with a wooden stick and no metal tools are used during the whole procedure.
Silica paste is rubbed into nails of the appropriate shape and into the cuticles. This procedure is not intended to create a design, but to support the natural plate.
Similarly, as in the case of Japanese manicure no metal tools are used in this type of procedure. The nails are worked on with wooden instruments, and the hands are supported with a wooden hoof while the manicure is being made.
The procedure is designed to improve the appearance of the nails, but also to prevent ingrown cuticles.
Considered cult, timeless and universal. This type of manicure is characterized by the combination of the selected nail polish in the shade of pastel pink/beige/nude with a clearly marked white edge of the nail.
Achieving this effect requires extreme precision and skill.
This manicure is based on the application of gel on the plate, which allows to obtain the desired shape, followed by curing and nail preparation. The gel before curing is plastic and allows for comfortable distribution and achieving the desired effect, which after curing ensures remarkable durability. In the case of regrowth in a gel manicure, it is enough to fill the gap; however, the complete removal of the gel requires the use of a an electrical nail drill machine and high precision.frezarki i dużego wyczucia.
A self-made manicure using the gel method should be preceded by professional training under the supervision of a qualified nail artist. The lack of knowledge and experience may have regrettable consequences, i.e. damage to the natural plate.
Advantages of a gel manicure? The possibility to create stunning nails when it is not possible in the case of the natural nail plate, accompanied by impressive durability and resistance to damage. Disadvantages? Making gel nails requires time, experience and skill! In the case of a gel nail design performed at a professional salon, it is definitely more expensive than a traditional manicure.
In the case of an acrylic manicure, a special mass mixed with powder and the so-called liquid, whose chemical properties result in its quick hardening, is applied to the nails. Acrylic needs to be prepared a moment before application to the nails and the template, and used as soon as possible - that's why this method requires extraordinary skills and fast pace of work. During the process of performing an acrylic manicure some women tend to complain about the specific smell of the monomer used to create the acrylic. And what are the advantages of an acrylic manicure?
Above all, acrylic is the most damage-resistant styling method, which will successfully meet the expectations of every woman and allow her to enjoy beautiful nails, although it was not possible to achieve the effect on the natural nail plate.
This is a special method of performing manicure, which makes the nails look impeccable even longer. Why?
The secret of a combined manicure lies in very precise preparation of the nail cuticles and the application of the nail polish beneath the cuticles so that the re-growing nail does not leave a gap between the cuticles and the plate covered with the polish for a longer time.
