How to apply nail tips with gel overlay

  1. First, push back your cuticles, buff the surface of your nails, and wipe them clean.
  2. Then, brush a thin coat of nail glue over each nail.
  3. Adjust the size and shape of the nail tip as needed.
  4. Buff and clean the surface, then apply your gel polish as usual.

To add length and drama, glue on a set of nail tips before applying the gel. You’ll need to use a buffing block to roughen up the shiny surface from both your natural nails and the tips, but once you do this you can apply all of the gel layers from your cuticle to the free edge of the fake nail tip.

Generally Can you get fake tips with gel nails? Both acrylics and gel can be used to create nail extensions. They also usually have a similar look, although gel tips may feel lighter. It’s mainly about the structure of the nail, but the real difference lies in the polymerization process, ease of removal, and density. The process of using gel is definitely quicker.
