Two types are used for building up and strengthening:

Liquid acrylic (suitable for those who want to correct the shape of the nail or add length. But the liquid material is more difficult to apply, and it is not easy for a layman to cope with it).

Flake powder (easier to apply. It is often bought to do manicures at home. It will not increase the length, but only make your nails less brittle).


Acrylic nail extension has been known in the beauty world for decades. For a long time, it was the only sure way to achieve permanent, long-lasting nails. Much later, gel extensions were introduced, replacing acrylics in the beauty industry.
Acrylics can be done in two ways:

Plastic nails that are glued to yours, on which the material is already applied.

On forms. They come in upper and lower forms. When using the top forms, the acrylic must be fixed to the notch of the substrate, and then pressed firmly onto the prepared nail plate. When using the lower moulds, the substrate should be immediately secured under the nail plate. (Read more about the extension forms in our article).
