Nail Technology


Nail technology is the term used to describe the process of applying artificial nail extensions. These extensions can be used to conceal very short, bitten or damaged nails; to help a client stop nail-biting; or as a fashion accessory for a special occasion.

Sometimes, also, clients with long natural nails choose to have just one or two extensions added to disguise any accidental damage to their own nails. Nail extensions can be made from acrylic, gel, silk or fibreglass, and the beauty therapist carrying out the treatment will be able to advise as to which type is best suited to the individual client’s needs.
