Adding Length to Your Natural Nail…

I recently had some bad luck with my nails and almost all of them started breaking off (and those that didn’t break I had to file down).  I had spent to much time and energy in growing my nails out that once they broke off I decided to go with an instant fix and add tip extensions to get the length I wanted.

For many years I used to get acrylics done, both in a salon and DIY, and they destroyed my nails! So once I got into doing gel polish I got the idea to use the gel polish in place of acrylics and I loved the results. Not only did my nails hold up like acrylics would(no breaking) but after removal there was no damage to my nail!

Here’s the tutorial, I hope you enjoy!

    I was in love after viewing your video but, I have two questions 1. can I use a top coat vs using gel polish 2. What are the steps I to know when my nail starts to grow out Thanks You for sharing

    • 1. No, top coat is not thick or strong enough and you will see a ridge where the tip meets the nail. 2. I do have a written tutorial under the “Tutorials” tab that shows how to infill once it’s grown out (assuming there’s no lifting, then it need to be removed).

    Around how much will it come out to if you buy all the products you need to do this ? And the products names please because I always forget or cant pronounce it haha… and did you get them all from Sally’s ?

      The price will depend on what products you buy. There are many different gel brands available at Sally’s at different price points. The most expensive item will be your lamp, usually good ones are in the $60 range. And you can get a pack of nails tips at Sally’s for a very reasonable price.

  3. Thank you so much for this. I’ve had a few nail accidents lately and never would have thought to do this. Gave it a try today and am so happy! Nubbins no more!
