Acrylic and Gel actually have the same chemical makeup. Acrylic is a liquid and powder that form a hard protective layer when combined. You can kind of think of gel as a pre-mixed acrylic. Gel has to be cured under an UV light, and its a little more flexible than an acrylic nail. Gel Polish is a hybird of gel and nail polish,and it also has to be cured under the light. Which type is best depends on the individual client. Also, any type of nail enhancements can be long- lasting with proper application.
Flare, Clusters, and Strip eyelashes are not applied individually. Long term wear will lead to fewer lashes for you every time the strip eyelash extensions are applied then taken off, which may result in spaces in your lash line where eyelashes were pulled out when they were not ready.
A long term alternative is Eyelash extensions. Which are single strands of hair. Each extension is made to look identical to a natural lash, and each is placed on top of the natural lash it is meant to extend. A special bonding solution is used to hold the extension in place. It should not touch the skin of the eyelid. An eyelash extension will remain in place until the natural lash on which it rests falls out. This can be as long as two months or more. False eyelashes last only about two weeks.
You shouldn’t shave before getting a pedicure. Shaving your legs makes you more prone to infection as newly shaved legs have open pores (and often tiny nicks you can’t see) that are susceptible to infectious diseases. So don’t be wary of showing off some stubble at the salon. If its that serious, you can always get waxed after!
The more you cut, the thicker the calluses will grow back. So you’ll be cutting for life! Always opt for a chemical callous removal or scrub treatment. Don’t fall victim to the discount salons where they shave the skin off your feet. Your feet will be worst off in the long run.
Breathe means to take air into the lungs and expel it. Nails do not have the ability to take in air through the nail plate. Cosmetic scientist Doug Schoon explains that “100% of the oxygen needed by the nail matrix to create a new nail plate comes from the blood stream and 0% comes from the outside world”. In conclusion, you don’t have to take your nails off to breath because your nail plate receives oxygen through the bloodstream.
