You can get Bio-Sculpture Gel nails at many beauticians these days, and in my personal opinion, they are AMAZING!!
Firstly, Bio-Sculpture Gel nails, in my experience, do not damage the real nail. When the gel is removed, your natural nail looks good as new, whereas acrylics tend to damage and weaken the nail.
You can have either overlays or extensions. Overlays simply cover the legnth of your natural nail. The overlay protects your nail, meaning they grow like crazy! Extensions mean you can get yourself some diva-licious nails but at a bit of an extra cost. Overlays tend to range from around £30-£35. Extensions £40-£45.
Bio-Sculpture Gel offer a gorgeous range of both vibrant and neutral colours. My favourite has to be "pillar box" (Very bright, VERY red).
Now onto chipping. I suppose everyone is different. Its depends on what you do. If your into washing pots or other forms of harcore grafting then obviously life expectancy on the nail front might suffer! However, I was rather impressed. I do your typical day-to-day jobs but mine lasted a good three weeks without chipping.
Nowhere's when it starts to go slightly downhill... Obviously when your nail has grown your going to need infills. Unless your nails grow extremely slowly, the maximum you can leave the gel nails without infills is around three weeks to a month. (At which point you have a humongous blank strip of nail above your cuticle, which just looks a tad silly to say the least!) Now for the price of infills you might as well just get the whole nail re-done, as it is only a couple of pounds extra.
Sothere you go. The pros and cons of Bio-Sculpture Gel nails. It's a pricey habit, but if you feel like being pampered then I say go for it!
