Acrylic nails have long been the most popular form of treatment within the nail industry. The acrylic process begins with a mixture of acrylic powder (Polymer) and acrylic liquid (Monomer). These combine to create a polymer resin (a paste like consistency), which is applied directly onto the nail. This paste then hardens or cures when in contact with air, to create a hard plastic polymer on the nail. At Effect Beauty we have the complete range of acrylic products and tools, enabling you to create perfect acrylic nails for your clients. We have also created the perfect acrylic starter kit ideal for beginners or those who want to create acrylic nails at home.
Gel nails are created by brushing the oligomer (Gel) directly onto the nail then curing the nail under an UV nail lamp. The UV rays in the lamp starts a chemical reaction within the gel which cures it onto the nail. Like acrylic nails, they are used as a form of nail extension and have become extremely popular with the development of UV gel polish from brands such as Shellac. At Effect Beauty we have the complete range of gel products and tools, enabling you to create perfect gel nails for your clients. We have also created the perfect gel starter kit ideal for beginners or those who want to create gel nails at home.
