Pros and cons of nail gel extension on forms
Many are interested in the following question: "And what, in fact, implies nail extension on gel forms?" This is an increase in the length of the nail bed using a special chemical. After this build-up, the nails acquire additional strength and a beautiful, well-groomed appearance. Now consider all the positive and negative aspects of gel nail extension. The pluses include the ability to give the nails a beautiful shape, make them shiny and more natural in appearance. And the disadvantage is that if a crack appears on an artificial nail, then repairing it later, unfortunately, is almost impossible. Another very unpleasant aspect is the removal of the gel from the nail plate. The fact is that this substance cannot be washed off by special means and it remains only to cut off the surface of an unnatural nail, and such a procedure (if the mater is incompetent in manicure) can lead to the plate becoming thin and brittle.

But this will not threaten you if you responsibly react to the choice of a master. Now, after weighing all the positive and negative qualities of such a procedure, you can decide whether to make yourself a nail gel extension on the forms or not.
