At Amelias Closet we offer a system to suit EVERYONE!

Nail Extensions – A lightweight plastic plate that follows the shape of the nail is glued to the tip of the natural nail in order to add length. Acrylic, gel, fibreglass or another mixture is then applied on top of the extension and is usually ‘cured’ in order to secure the extension and add strength and shine.

Nail Overlays – Overlays skip the extension step, and instead of adding artificial length onto the nail, the strengthening mixture is simply applied directly onto the natural nail in order to add strength and durability.

We work with 3 systems; Acrylic, Fibreglass and UV Gel which ALL provide Nail Extensions & Strengthening Wraps in all systems.

ALL systems have their PROS & CONS.

When professionally applied and maintained; enhancements can be a welcomed pleasure to nail biters, those unable to grow their own nails
and for nail repairs to the hands and feet.

 

Fibreglass/Silk

A plastic tip is used to extend the nail length, this is cut to size and strengthened with layers of fine synthetic mesh and resin to create a clear, glassy appearance.

Alternatively, if you are happy with the length of you nails you may have your own nail strengthened with this system.

The procedure is the same simply without the application of a tip.
As with all enhancements the gap, that appears at the cuticle as the nail grows, will need to be infilled between 2-3 weeks. Alternatively, you should return to us to have them removed.

 Acrylic

A tip is attached to part of the nail. This is cut to size and then coated with a formulation of a pink powder and liquid, which sets hard over the nail.

This system is available with a permanent 'French polish' either by using a white tip or with white powder/liquid on the free edge.

The enhancement is then buffed to a smooth finish.

If you are happy with your own nail length then we can use Acrylic to coat the nail but as a strengthening wrap. The procedure is the same as above omitting the application of the plastic tip.

The nail can be left clear or polished in a normal or Gel Polish

 U.V Gel

A tip is applied to part of the nail. This is cut to size and coated in layers of a thick gel and cured under an ultra violet light.

This system can be used with a white tip for a permanent French Polish.

If you are happy with the length of your nail then this system can be used as a strengthening wrap. A white gel can be used on the free edge for those preferring a permanent French Polish.
