what is it, even?
Aprés Gel-X is the world's first specially formulated full cover soft gel tips that safely adds strength and/or length to your natural nails. This extension system is odourless, dust-free, and preserves the condition of your natural nails due to it's easy soak-off capabilities.
how does it work?
Pretty simple: following your manicure we will size you up, apply the nail tips, then paint.
what’s the difference between Aprés Gel-X vs. acrylic vs. gel overlay?
The main difference is the porosity of the material and removal process which are the main properties of a soft and hard gel. Aprés Gel-X is a full cover soft gel tip which is porous and can be easily and safely removed by simply soaking with acetone. Acrylic/gel overlay are not as porous so the removal process includes filing off the gel for the acetone to penetrate and break down the product.
is it safe for your natural nails?
100% yes! The removal process is safe due to the formulation of the Aprés Gel-X soft gel tips and it’s easy soak-off capability, similar to removing gel polish (aka Shellac), just a slightly longer soak time. This is what makes it a great alternative to acrylic or gel overlay.
what’s the removal process like?
Pretty simple: buff off the gel polish and soak the Aprés Gel-X tips in acetone for 15-20 minutes.
