This service performed by a nail technician in a salon, beauty salon, nail bar or at home consists of filling the space left between the gel false nails and the cuticle area caused by the regrowth of natural nails. This maintenance is necessary to fill the nail growth gap. Several steps are required for a gel fill.
The first step will be to re-balance the nails by sanding the upper part with a nail drill to leave only the base gel. Then you have to adjust the desired length and shape of the nails. The duration of the touch-up is about an hour depending on the gap that has widened and the desires of the clients.
For the second part of the filling, it will be a question of setting up new extensions as in the case of a normal gel nail application. A transparent gel is applied to the root of the elongated nails to prepare the base. All nails are then coated with two to three coats of builder gel. All corners and the area near the cuticles will need to be well filled in to spread the gel evenly so that it can cover the existing nails well. All that remains is to put the new design in place on the finished base and then finish with a coating of finishing gel to protect the new extensions.
