Gel and acrygel nails

Gel and acrygel nails

With artificial nails, you can add length and strength to your own nails. Artificial nails are built on top of your own nail with acrygel or gel (hard gel) by our nail technician. The age limit for artificial nails is 16 years. Our nails are done by Pro and Junior level technicians, whose services are priced according to the skill level. So you can choose the service that best suits your budget. Artificial nails are an easy way to get beautiful, well-groomed and durable nails. Did you know that artificial nails can also be short, and if you bite your nails, artificial nails or natural nail overlay are great solutions for you!

Different artificial nail masses

  • Acrygel nails

    Acrygel is a UV-hardened mass that is thicker than traditional gel. Acrygel is shaped with an orange stick and a brush, using liquid as an aid so that the product does not stick to the work tool. As a material, Acrygel is flexible, but very durable. Thanks to its flexibility, it “lives” with the natural nail better than harder materials. For this reason, Acrygel can be better suited to weaker, thinner and more flexible nails than other materials.

     

  • Gel nails

    Traditional gel masses harden in UV light and have different flexibilities, from harder masses to very flexible masses. The viscosity of the mass determines whether it is more runny or stiff when shaped. When choosing a mass, the purpose of use and the characteristics of the customer’s natural nails are taken into account.

Artificial nails in Blue Lagoon Beauty

In our Blue Lagoon beauty salons, we have priced our artificial nail services according to the skill level of the nail technician! We offer pro and junior level artificial nails so you can choose the solution that best suits your needs and budget.

At Blue Lagoon, we only use molds to build the extension, i.e. the whole nail is only acrygel or gel mass. We do not use nail glue or tips. Molds make for a more natural look and are stronger, because there is no adhesive bond between your own nail and the artificial nail, which could become brittle during use.
The recommended maintenance interval for structural nails is 3-4 weeks, depending on the growth of your own nail. In maintenance, the old mass is filed and the growth is filled to the base. Every service has the possibility to change the style of the nails.

Artificial nails do not damage your own nail if properly applied and maintained. It is therefore absolutely important that the technician is a professional in the use of a file or an electric file. We do not recommend that customers file the nails (other than shortening) or use glue if any damage occurs and the material comes off the surface of the nail.

There is no need to take a break from artificial nails if the nails are well done. According to urban legend, nails cannot breathe under artificial nails, but in reality, if properly cared for, nails can last for several years. We do not recommend artificial nails for the still growing and developing nails of young customers, which is why our age limit for artificial nails is 16 years.

Nail polish shades & nail decorations for artificial nails

In our beauty salons, you can find a wide selection of CrystaLac polishes, which we use for painting the artificial nails. If you wish, the nails can also be left unpainted, if you want a result that is as natural as possible and even slightly translucent. Our range of shades includes the so-called basic selection, salon’s own shades and seasonal colors. Please note that not all lacquer shades visible in e.g. social media photos may always be available at all locations, as there may be differences in salon-specific shade selections.

Longer artificial nail appointments include the decorations you want, but please note that the length of the nail service you book determines what will be done to the nails during the service. You can find detailed descriptions of nail services in our price list. We kindly ask you to note that our nail technicians are individuals with their own strengths, and there may be differences in decorating skills. If you wish for a certain style of decoration or a more demanding nail design, we recommend you to check out the work samples of our nail professionals on our team page, so that you can find the most suitable professional for you.

Nail shapes

We often talk about the color of the nail polish or nail decorations, but forget that the shape of the nails has a lot to do with how the hands and fingers look. There is a wide selection of nail shapes and there is no single correct one. By changing the style of your nails, you can get a completely new look for yourself. Everyone is sure to find their favorite among the many models. When choosing the shape of your nails, you should pay attention to the model of your own hands and fingers. Our nail technicians know how to evaluate the most suitable shape for your needs and nails.

Changing from one nail service to another

Changing from artificial nails to gel polish

When switching to gel polish, the artificial nails must always be removed first. In that case, book an appointment for “Removal of the artificial nails + IBX” and a new CrystaLac gel polish according to the style you choose (one-coloured / French / baby boomer / decorative all inclusive).
