It’s a time saver for you as a nail professional. You should allow about 45 minutes to shape resin nails and about 60 minutes to shape gel. The advantage of this technique is that your client must schedule an appointment three weeks later for the maintenance of their gel nails.


If your client wishes to have strong and long nails, then you should offer the capsule application. These plastic false nails are glued one by one on each nail, then cut and filed to obtain the desired length. Once the capsule is in place, you shape the nails with gel or acrylic resin. A false nail application with capsules requires a filling every 3 weeks.

The nail modeling on a stencil is also called nail extension. It serves as a guide to shape the nail and lengthen it. The advantage of the stencil is that the length can be short. It can also be used to correct the length of a single nail or to shape a free edge on a bitten or even broken nail.

OK! Now you know everything about the false nails, bring your manicure kit and act now! It doesn’t matter if you don’t have nail tools. We have everything all you need.
