Loose powder (easier to use. It is often bought to do a manicure at home. It will not increase the length, but only make your nails less brittle).


Acrylic nail extension has been known in the beauty world for more than a dozen years. For a long time, it was the only reliable way to get strong long nails for a long time. Much later, extension gel appeared and displaced acrylic in the beauty industry.
