ACRYGEL/POLYGEL – THE SAFER ALTERNATIVE TO EXTENSIONS
We all like having fabulous well-manicured nails, but the constant application of nail extensions can sometimes leave your natural nails a little less than fabulous and can lead to damaging your natural nails especially if the nails aren’t taken care of in between salon appointments. (For more on healthy nails check out our blog on Maintenance Tips for Longer Lasting Nail Extensions).
Enter Acrygel/Polygel, a safter alternative to other forms of nail extensions. Many in the industry consider this method as the new leading nail enhancement on the market as it a safer and less toxic product for both the nail technician and the client.
SO, WHAT ARE ACRYLIC/POLYGEL NAIL EXTENSIONS?
Acrygel Nail Extensions also referred to as PolyGel Extensions are a gel and acrylic hybrid, offering the same lengthening abilities as acrylics, with some added benefits.
Acrygel/Polygel, sold in a tube much like toothpaste, is a mixture if acrylic powder and clear gel. It has a putty-like consistency and is extremely easy to apply and shape.
Check out just a few of the many added benefits to using Acrygel/Polygel below:
Non-Toxic & Almost Odorless
In comparison to acrylics, Acrygel doesn’t contain the same strong chemical aromas, making it safer for both the technician and the client. Acrygel is an all-round healthier option as it is formulated without the harmful ingredients found in acrylics, there are fewer airborne toxins.
Flexible & Lightweight
Acrygel nail extensions offer a flexible alternative to rigid acrylics. They are a lightweight & stronger nail enhancement option, making them much more suitable for those on the go. Boasting an ability to bend more than acrylics, acrygel nails are less likely to break and therefore less likely to cause damage to the underlying nails.
Protects Natural Nails
Rather than weakening natural nails like acrylics, Acrygel protects them! So, whilst you’re nails still look flawlessly manicured on the outside, your natural nail is being protected and getting some restorative downtime. In addition, the removal process is more gentle minimizing nail trauma. All it takes is a gentle buffing process, with no acetone required!
