What are the Ways To Style Your Nails

An important part of my appearance and how I feel about myself comes down to self care and 1 of the ways I offer myself self care is through the form of being pampered, something I thoroughly enjoy is having my nails made to look pretty

I’ve had regular manicures, luxury manicures, hot wax manicures, extensions, acrylics, shellac’s and more recently SNS gel treatments…I often upload pictures to Instagram once I’ve had them done so makes sure your following me on Instagram

There are lots of salons and nail bars that offer the treatments and depending on how you like your nails to look will change the treatment you might want done

If you already have natural nails your happy with you might just opt for a manicure and polish, this is where they remove the excess cuticles on each nail, usually a hand and finger massage and then a polish colour to top it off

I often have acrylic extensions as I liked having longer nails than I am able to grow as my nails typically break when they get to a certain length plus they were never really that strong, acrylic extensions give you exactly the type of nail that you want as the style and shape is created with the acrylic so the technician can create the style you want easily. This treatment means you have whatever nails you have cut off and tips put on and then the acrylic powder is put on top and moulded into the shape you want. This is then buffed smooth and you can have a polish finish or have them with a natural look finish

Shellac polish is a liquid gel which is set to harden with a UV light, the benefits of this means that you don’t have to wait for the polish to dry and worry about smudging them. You can have shellac polish on any type of nail, natural without extensions or even on top of acrylic nails. I absolutely love shellac polish as typically you get no cracking, no chipping no spoiling of any sort and this lasts until you remove it. I tend to get them re-done every 3 weeks when I have shellac as that’s the rate of growth for my nails

SNS nails is something I’ve been having more recently as they are less damaging to your own natural nail, there is no drilling to apply the SNS polish. The liquid base is applied directly to your own nail and then your finger is dipped into the colour powder you want, the powder sticks to the liquid and coats your nail. It’s then buffed smooth and have a nice strong coverage without looking bulky and fake

There are a lot of at home kits like these, I would always recommend buying the removal kits as well in case you don’t like how it looks once you have done it and then you won’t pull them off and ruin your own nails

Let me know what experiences you have had whether you recommend a certain style or if there is a treatment you would never have
