The Art Of Gel Extensions

Nail-Shapes-with-Bio-Sculpture-Gel

Women LOVE long, beautiful nails, and nothing makes a woman feel more feminine than gorgeous, colourful talons that are equal parts stylish and sexy.

But not all women’s nails are equal, and a large number want the look and feel of beautiful long nails, but cannot have them for a number of reasons. Whether they require short nails for work, have nails that break easily, or have a nail-biting problem, the idea of long nails seems like an unobtainable dream for some.

Fortunately, Bio Sculpture Gel Extensions are here to the rescue. Utilising its 5 Star Safety Rated Gel system, Bio Sculpture has taught thousands of technicians in the art of gel extensions, allowing them to offer all women a chance to have beautiful and natural looking long nails.

So, what is involved in transforming your clients nails? Below are the steps qualified Bio Sculpture technicians take to create beautiful nail and natural looking extensions:

1) PREP

The natural nail is gently prepared, ensuring stray cuticles and surface oils are removed from the nail surface

HEALTH HINT: To avoid cross-contamination between clients, we recommend using disposable MULTI FILES that allow you to easily and hygienically change buffs or files in the one accessory.

2) FORM

The technician then uses a Nail Form, gently placing it underneath the client nails free edge. This Nail Form helps support the gel extension application, as well as guides the technician to allow for a perfectly symmetrical application.

3) BASE

A base layer of Bio Sculpture’s multi-award winning BASE GEL is applied to the natural nail without using nasty primers or bonders that are common practice in other gel systems. This ensures the nail is well protected, and is not exposed to nasty chemicals

FUN FACT: Bio Sculpture’s multi-award winning BASE GEL is applied to the natural nail, naturally creating a bond without the need for dehydrating primers or bonders that are common practice in other gel systems

Keep Your Bio Gel Nails Beautiful

 

Bio Tips To Keep Your Bio Gel Nails BEAUTIFUL

Even though Bio Sculpture is the only 5 Star Safety Rated gel system in the market today, a little extra TLC can help keep your nails looking beautiful and healthy.

Below are some helpful tips for looking after your Bio Gel nails:

1) NEVER Pick, Pull or Bite

This will likely cause the gel to be forcefully removed from the natural nail, bringing with it layers of nail and ultimately resulting in weakened or damaged nails. Removal should be done by a qualified Bio Sculpture therapist who has been trained on how to safety remove your gel nails without causing any damage. Alternatively, enquire about our DIY removal and home care kits from a Bio Sculpture Salon near you, which contains everything you need to safety remove your Bio Sculpture Gel and keep your nails healthy.


2) Protect Your Nails

Whether working in the garden or doing some cleaning around the house, simply wearing gloves can protect your nails from dehydrating detergents and harmful bleaches, resulting in longer lasting wear and shine.

3) Top Up Your Shine

Regularly apply Bio Sculpture’s High Gloss Top Coat, which has been specially formulated with a sun filter that protects the Gel from UV light exposure and will keep your talons looking shiny. After about 1 week, easily remove the High Gloss Top Coat with Bio Sculpture’s Polish Remover and reapply a shiny new High Gloss Top Coat layer.

4) Keep Regular Appointments

Nails grow quick, and after only a week or two you will begin to notice some signifiant regrowth. It is recommended that you have an appointment every 2 to 3 weeks to help maintain cuticle health with Bio Sculpture’s natural nail treatments, and to have the Bio Sculpture gel removed and/or reapplied. Removal is an important part of nail health and safety, and should be done by a qualified Bio Sculpture therapist who can safely remove the gel or polish without damaging the natural nail plate.

5) Try A Spa Treatment

A Bio Sculpture manicure and pedicure spa treatment is a great way of getting moisture back into your nails, hands and feet. Inspired by nature, Bio Sculpture’s Luxury Spa Range products are infused with heavenly aromatics and nourishing essential oils such as rose geranium, ylang ylang, lavender, mint mask and jojoba, that help keep your skin feeling smooth and hydrated.

To find a nail salon near you that offers Bio Sculpture gel and spa treatment services, visit www.biosculpture.com.au or call 1300 BIO GEL (246 435).

Health Focus – Cuticle Care


Cuticles, cuticles, cuticles!

Often mistreated, the cuticles play an important part in nail health – acting as a protective barrier for the fast growing soft keratin that eventually becomes your nails.

If neglected, your cuticles may become damaged, dry or harden, and allow microscopic dust and organisms to penetrate the area under the cuticle. This may not only cause discomfort and pain, but may lead to an infection that impacts on the overall health of your nail, and can leave them feeling soft, discoloured or misshaped.

Below are some helpful tips to keep your cuticles healthy, and your nails strong and beautiful!

1) Keep ’em strong!

Like your skin, your cuticles need regular moisturising to maintain their health and structure. By regularly applying Nail Treatments like Bio Sculpture’s Cuticle Oil or Nail & Cuticle Conditioner, your cuticles will be enriched with nourishing jojoba, ginseng and almond oils keeping them healthy, strong and flexible.

TIP: Be sure to check the ingredients of your Nail Treatments – some nail hardeners and cuticle conditioners may contain toluene sulphonamide or formaldehyde which are irritants and can further damage the skin. Bio Sculpture products are 5 FREE, meaning they do not contain toluene sulphonamide and formaldehyde, as well as toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and formaldehyde.

Healthy Treatments = Healthy Nails

2) Leave it to the professionals

Tempted to bite, cut, pick, trim or clip those unruly cuticles? Think again. Cutting or trimming cuticles at home increases the risk of breaking that protective barrier, and allowing germs to enter and infect the cuticle or nail area. It is crucial that you go to a well trained Nail Technician, who understands how to provide a safe and healthy manicure service without damaging the cuticle.

All Bio Sculpture Nail Technicians have undergone training to ensure your nails and cuticles are professionally treated and cared for.

3) If you suspect that you have a cuticle infection, GO TO THE DOCTOR!

Doctors can easily treat cuticle infections with a range of antibacterial and anti-fungal treatments. Avoid getting gel or polish manicures or pedicures until your infection has gone, or you have received the all clear from the Doc.

FACT: An infection in the cuticle is called paronychia, and an infection in the nail plate is called onychomycosis

4) When it comes to your overall nail health – NEVER ACCEPT ANYTHING LESS THAN 5 STAR!

Bio Sculpture® Gel is the only clinically proven, 5-STAR SAFETY RATED nail system on the market today. Bio Sculpture Therapists have been trained to provide world-class nail care service that can shape, lengthen and condition of your nails without causing any damage to the natural nail!
