Manicure is a set of procedures for the care of nails and skin of the hands. In recent years, the cosmetics industry has introduced the world to many new tools that allow you to give your nails a beautiful and flawless look. The most popular gel varnishes are today. In combination with a base and a resistant coating, they last long enough to withstand everyday mechanical stresses.
Modern manicure technology
Over the past few years, the chemical industry has invented different compositions with which it was possible to improve nail care and extend the life of the coating. In addition to the classic manicure, modern women have the opportunity to choose more complex procedures with the best effect:
- Minx-manicure - a sticker of a thin film is applied to the nails, which is fixed under the influence of the rays of the UV lamp while pressing it on the nail plate. For decoration, mainly films for imitation of metal are used. Today, this technology is at the peak of popularity in Europe.
- Acrylic coating - the nail plate is covered with acrylic and decorated with modeling. This manicure lasts a long time and looks solemn.
- Permanent manicure - a thin layer of gel polish or biogel is applied to natural nails. This manicure lasts up to 2-3 weeks and looks neat. For its implementation additional funds are required: base, coating and lamp for drying.
What is the base
The base for gel and gel polish is, in other words, the corrective base used for gel polish or gel. According to the classical technology, it is applied with a thin layer on previously cleaned and fat-free nails or by drip technology to smooth the nail plate. The base has a transparent color and allows you to hide minor imperfections in the surface of the nail.
The base for gel and gel polish is designed to give greater stability to the gel coating and strengthen the most nail plates. Databases of some manufacturers, by the way, contain therapeutic components that contribute to the improvement of their structure. The life of the manicure directly depends on the quality of the foundation.
