Gentle female hands are the admiration of any man. First of all, the hands speak of age, but the lifestyle also affects the appearance of the hands and nails. In order for the dream of beautiful hands and neat nails to come true, you should pay attention to the quality of the cosmetics used in the manicure process.
More recently, Russian women have not even heard of the need to apply a base base before applying color. Whereas today you rarely find a high-quality manicure without the use of a base coat, which exists in several versions. Usually these are bed varnishes, usually peach or pink. It is the base coat that is responsible for the quality and durability of the manicure. Here are some of the benefits of using it:
Evens out the nail, smoothing out imperfections and turning the surface of the nail plate into a perfectly smooth area for applying a decorative layer; The base enhances the adhesion between the decorative coating and the surface of the nail, which allows the manicure to last much longer; The high-quality base base contains a large amount nutrients that improve the quality of nails.
Decorative varnish contains coloring pigments, which, even after removal, remain on the nails in the form of yellow spots. However, by using a base coat that creates a protective layer, unwanted staining of the nail plate can be prevented. Another important advantage of the base is the possibility of using it without a colored coating, applying the base in several layers.
Healing and strengthening bases are useful for all types of nails, but especially for brittle and weak ones. What types of basecoats help to strengthen nails and prevent them from flaking? If nails take a long time to heal after applying artificial coatings, special bases should be purchased. They contribute to the rapid recovery of the nail, even with damage caused by intensive grinding or removing the coating in violation of the technology.
There are three main categories of manicure bases: conventional, medicinal, and special effects.
Regular base. This is the most common and hassle-free type of foundation, which is available due to its popularity in the cosmetic market, as well as its low cost. It is not worth focusing on the high cost, since the advertised funds are often more expensive, but the effect is the same as the cheaper counterparts. In this case, you should pay attention to professional brands, which are the golden mean between mass market and luxury. A decorative varnish and a base for nails developed by the same brand will be more effective in protecting the nail surface from harmful substances contained in the decorative varnish. However, almost any base applied in several layers can cope with this function.
Medical base. This type of foundation has a firming, nourishing and anti-inflammatory effect due to its high content of nutrients. The choice of the treatment base depends on the type of problems with the nail plate. If you have weak and brittle nails, you should opt for a nutritious basis that contains a lot of essential oils. Depending on the desired effect, it is necessary to decide on the expediency of a deeper treatment (such bases are applied in courses, for a period of two to three weeks). However, the therapeutic base will have a positive effect if the damage to the nail surface is acquired, and not genetic.
Base with special effects. These bases are needed for certain decorative finishes. Such bases do not have to be available at all, however, with them the application of a decorative coating becomes much more pleasant, and problem varnishes are more accommodating.
When buying any cosmetic product, you should pay attention to the label. And the choice of decorative varnish, this rule, is also no exception, because the decorative coating has direct contact with the nail plate, so the question is not so much in beauty as in preserving its health. Therefore, when buying nail polish, you should pay special attention to the substances that it contains.

Scientists all over the world, in particular researchers of the American Academy of Dermatology, have long been saying that the constant wearing of gel polish is fraught with health. Especially for people who are sensitive to ultraviolet light. When removing gel polish, the upper cells of the nail plate are damaged, which, in turn, can lead to thinning of the nails and the appearance of spots and scratches - keratin granulation.
And, this is not to mention the fact that most gel polishes contain a lot of chemicals that can cause an allergic reaction, spoil the appearance and condition of nails. It is much easier to use high-quality safe varnishes on an ongoing basis.
Almost every woman dreams of beautiful and long nails. However, a lack of vitamins, washing dishes and many other factors prevent it from growing the desired length. Fortunately, there is such a procedure as nail extension, which allows every woman to become the owner of beautiful and well-groomed pens. What types of this procedure are and what are their differences, this article will tell.
Currently, such a procedure as nail extension has become commonplace for most women, because it allows you to forget about manicure for about 1 month. However, before going to the procedure, it is advisable to familiarize yourself with all its types in advance in order to choose the most suitable method for yourself.
There are two main ways to grow:
Let's look at each in more detail.
Tips are plastic plates that attach to the nail with one end and form its free edge with the other. They are glued to about half of the area of the nail plate. The length of the free edge should not exceed the area of the glued tip, otherwise the nail may break in the future.
The most durable tips are made of special ABS plastic. Such material is not afraid of high temperatures and aggressive detergents.
Plastic can be of very different colors (transparent, milky, etc.), length, bend, which allows you to choose the ideal option for a very different nail plate.
Plastic is attached to a natural nail with special glue, after which it is given the required length using a special tool - a tip cutter (cutter). Next, the surface of the nail plate is leveled with a file (the border of contact of the nail with the tips is removed), and it is given a shape. Finally, the plastic is fixed to the nail using gel or acrylic.
It is worth remembering that the specialist removes the length of the tips with a small margin, because after laying out the gel or acrylic, additional sawing and formation of the required shape will take place.
With a high-quality extension, such nails last from 3 to 4 weeks.
