Irina DedenevaExperts agree: you should never neglect the use of basecoat, because it protects the nail plate from external influences, increases adhesion of nail polish, which significantly extends the “life” manicure. “Besides, if you are a fan of bright NAIL POLISH , the base protects the nail plate from the penetration of color pigments, and thus on its yellowing “- emphasizes Irina Dedeneva.
Elizabeth Metsih Summarizing colleagues: “Nail-base – it is usually colorless or translucent lacquer which is applied to the cleaned surface of the nail to the decorative cover. Basic coverage under the lacquer is imperative as any varnishes consist of dyes and solvents, soaking the substrate in the nails. This adversely affects the nail cover, promotes yellowing of the nail plate. Furthermore, varnishes base level the surface of the nail, promote easier application and better adhesion to the surface of the decorative lacquer nail plate, often have a therapeutic effect by the inclusion of the additional vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Often the base under a clear lacquer, pink or milky color is used as an independent coating to create the effect of natural and healthy luster. “

Stage, which many (hide?) Begin their manicure, actually follows at number two. These coatings have a variety of colors and textures for every taste and occasion: there are matte, glossy, shiny, with velvet, metallic, satin effect, decorative microparticles, etc. “You can create an elegant manicure effortlessly – advises Irina Dedeneva. – It’s enough just to apply two coats of matte or glossy varnish (the most common and favorite cover) over the base coat.If we talk about TRENDS 2013 , the sequins – is the last word in fashion manicure! Glossy coatings are remarkable in that they can be applied as a varnish over a colored, or as an independent coating. The secret: the more layers you apply, the more sparkling becomes your manicure. “
Galina MintichTo get beautiful decorative coating and persistent, and nail health allowed any nail-design, Galina Mintich gives some tips. First, lacquer should be applied thin and even layers. But it is not so easy. It is important to pay attention to the consistency of the varnish if it is thick, it is unlikely they will cover the nail exactly because varnish can create too thick, and thus greatly increase the drying time. If the nail has a liquid consistency, it will likely spread, whereby there will be “bald spots.” Also, when working with paint must be remembered that the pressure on the brush must be weak, because excessive pressure on the cover bands appear.

Manicurist Guide: What is shellac?
Shellac (Shellac) – a hybrid paint and gel-resistant coating designed beauty-American corporation CND . Our experts are sure that this tool embodies the best quality paint (ease of application, the glitter, the richness of color scale) and the gel (no varnish characteristic sharp odor resistance, non-destructive). Deleted it, like varnish, without additional sawing with a special liquid for removal of artificial nails.
Galina Mintich explains: “With Shellac do not work as a gel from the jar, but as usual with varnish from the bottle.Brush has a flat shape that allows exactly cover the nail. Polymerizing ultraviolet lamp coating dries quickly and completely that it eliminates the problem of lubrication and lasts 2-3 weeks, which certainly is the most important advantage of this coverage.

Manicurist Guide: What is the gel coat polish?
One of the biggest fans of the gel tunic is ANGELINA JOLIE . Gel coat for nails strong and resistant, it is used to strengthen the capacity of natural and artificial nails. Such coverage is very comfortable to wear, does not lose its luster for 3-4 weeks, but requires regular correction. Remove it from the nails can only be mechanically – trimming surface, since it is not dissolved by acetone.
Elizabeth Metsih explains: “The gel coating is applied to the nail plate with a brush. To effect curing of the gel requires a special light source, or ultraviolet or halogen. In the course of the reactions on the nails creates a very strong polymer coating resembling fiberglass. Nails after long wear gel require recovery tend to complete fusion of the nail plate. ”
Results nail look great and keep a long time: 3-4 months with monthly correction – emphasizes Galina Mintich.
But on the widely advertised biogel opinions of our experts differed somewhat. “Biogelevoe cover – this plastic coating which is categorized as” soft “gels, on the nails curing under ultraviolet light – says Elizabeth Metsih. – The composition of biogels include various nutritional components: natural resins, protein, calcium, vitamins. Biogel strengthens nails grow long and allows for a long time to give your nails well-groomed appearance. In addition, it is used for a gradual recovery after extension nails. Such a coating are 2-4 weeks, it can not be adjusted. Unlike gel Biogel amenable maceration in a special solution, which makes the removal procedure quick and painless. ”
Meanwhile Galina Mintich sure that the beneficial properties of this coating – this is more a marketing ploy manufacturers that focuses on the natural origin of the new product: “However, the so-called” bio-gel “is essentially a gel and relates to artificial materials.”
Manicurist Guide: What is an acrylic coating for nails?
Acrylic coating – it is very durable polymer which is formed by mixing acrylic powder with a special liquid, liquidity, resulting in a dense, rapidly hardens consistency. Acrylic hardens without UV lamps for several minutes. “Such a coating can be very thin and look completely natural – says Elizabeth Metsih. – It is used for strengthening and nail, it is indispensable to the maintenance and reconstruction of damaged nails. There are also disadvantages: acrylic application is accompanied by a very sharp and unpleasant odor, sensitive skin, there is a risk of quite severe irritation. Removed maceration in atsetonosoderzhaschem solution nails after a long socks need to be restored. ”
We asked experts provocative question: which is better, acrylic or gel? “This dispute is conducted since the introduction of both technologies, but to put the question this way is not entirely correct – meets Galina Mintich. – Better material that more suits your nails. It depends on their condition, your lifestyle and also on your taste in fashion.
The main difference from acrylics gels is that they are sticky and thick consistency. When working with them there is no need to keep track of the correct ratio of components in acrylic. Plus, gels typically have a whiff, or he is absent. Also, when using nail polish remover acrylic nails with glitter fades, return that can only be polished with oil, whereas the gel does not lose its flawless radiance. Gel and acrylic absolutely identical keratin natural nails, so they not only do not harm, but on the contrary, protect natural manicure from adverse external influences.
On the effects on natural nails, both materials are almost the same: they are, and acrylic, gel and even belong to the same family of acrylics. Inflict harm nails rather than the materials themselves, and work with them illiterate. If acrylic nails can simply be dissolved and completely removed, the gel must file away. Insufficiently experienced master can easily damage your natural nails. But if you trust your beauty professionals, there is absolutely nothing to fear. ”
