The reconstruction is done by specialized nail technicians , who follow special courses to learn how to make it. It is not, in fact, a very easy technique. Unfortunately, it is not an economic treatment: the cost ranges from about 50 to 80 euros , but it must be considered that it must be repeated only every 3-4 weeks, when the regrowth of the nails starts to be noticed.

If you want, you can try to make the gel reconstruction at home , buying the appropriate kit in the shops that sell items for beauticians. Usually the kit includes: buffer file, nail degreaser, primer , base nail gel, colored gel, top coat gel and LED lamp. Know, however, that it is not enough to have everything you need to make a perfect gel manicure, you must also practice a lot!

To make simple gel nails , you must first remove the cuticles and any residual nail polish. Never cut the cuticles, soften them with a special oil and then push them back with a wooden stick. At this point you have to degrease the nails by filing the surface with the buffer file. Apply the primer, let it dry and then spread a thin layer of base gel , to be polymerized in a lamp (the minutes vary according to the brand and type, read on the package).

Degrease the gel with the appropriate product, then make a first coat of colored gel , cure, degrease and, if necessary, make a second coat, always to polymerize and degrease. With a drop of gel, form a slight camber in the center of the nail, cure and degrease. Finally, apply the top coat and, once again, cure it in a lamp and degrease.
