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.
After around 2-3 weeks you may need to return to your technician or salon for a ‘maintenance’ appointment or ‘infills’.
The infill process will generally involve your technician filing out the re-growth area flush to the nail so that product (the relevant gel or acrylic system) can be reapplied, filed, buffed, coated and oiled so that the nails look as good as new once again.
A pedicure is a way to improve the appearance of the feet and their nails. The word pedicure comes from the Latin words pendis, which means of the foot, and cura, which means care. A pedicure can help prevent nail diseases and disorders. Pedicures are not just limited to nails however; usually dead skin cells from the soles of feet are removed.

Manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the fingernails and hands which dates back more than 5000 years, and people still love to have a manicure today, so have you ever wondered how a manicure is done?
A manicure consists of filing, shaping of the free edge, cuticle treatments, massaging of the hand and application of the polish. In addition, the soaking in a softening substance and the application of lotions are common specialties.
Lash extensions are individually applied synthetic fibres attached to the base of each eyelash with surgical glue. Each fake lash is applied one by one (it is a painstaking process) to your own eyelashes.
If you are careful in your daily handling of the eye area and have touch-ups every two to four weeks (think about it the same way you do about touch-up visits for artificial nails or dyeing your hair), your lash extensions can last a long time.
How often you need a “fill” depends on your own natural eyelash growth cycle and on how well you take care of your lashes.
