Makartt Poly Nail Extension Gel Kit Review

Gel Nail Extension Kits FAQs
What is the best gel nail extension kit for me?
There are two things you should consider before buying a kit. First, your experience. If you are a beginner, go for a popular gel nail kit, but don’t go wild on your budget. Second, know your hands in and out. I would recommend Makartt Poly Nail Extension Gel Kit for starters.
How much should I spend on a gel nail extension kit as a beginner?
A good price would be between $20-$40. No need for fancy things right now, you have time to explore and go for high-end products later.
Can I use nail extension kits if I have short nails?
An extension should be 1/3rd of your normal nail length. If you keep that in mind and you have natural, strong, and healthy nails then there is no problem with using nail extension kits.
What should I choose: PolyGel or Acrylic nail kits ?
It really depends on your taste. For example, acrylic nails look less natural than gel ones, also they are cheaper and last longer. On the other side, you don’t have many varieties to choose from with acrylic nails.
How do I protect my nails after the gel nail is applied?
Avoid fire and heat, wear gloves and in general be careful when doing things around the house. Use basecoat before polish, use cuticle oil if you can every day and do not pick off your nail extension if you care about the health of your nails.
