WHAT ARE INSTANT GEL EXTENSIONS?

GELA's instant gel extensions are carefully hand-painted nails that are strengthened with UV builder gel/ acrylic and are applied as press-on nails. Our nails are carefully shaped to mimic the look and feel of in-salon nail enhancements. Our nails come in 10 sizes (0-9) and can be filed and reused with proper care and storage. You'll have the option of coffin, square, stiletto, and almond nail shapes, in short, medium, long or XXL.

WHY DID I GET AN EMAIL SAYING MY NAILS COULDN'T BE MADE?

At GELA we try to the best of our ability to service everyone with all of their nail art needs! However, sometimes we don't have a specific accessory/product to produce your dream set. If you receive this email, it will include the product or accessory that is not in our possession and available substitutions. At this point, you can decide to make a new order or email us back with instructions to leave those items out of your design and/ or accept the substitutions.

HOW DO I APPLY MY GEL EXTENSIONS?

HOW DO I FIND MY SIZE?

Option #1 is ordering all the nail sizes. You’d get sizes from 0-9 for both hands plus an additional 2 nails. Usually id give 4 extra nails because some people have two fingers on the same hand that are the same size. This option is $5 extra

 

Option #2 is you let me size you by sending me a photo of your hand top down with a dime on the photo. Also send the same kind of photo for your thumb. I would size the photo up to real dime in my possession that way i would have the life sized photos of your fingernails and it match my nails up to the photo. Ive had success with this a few times. You’ll receive nails in your size plus an extra 2.

 

Option#3 is to order a sizing kit, match your nails up the blank nails and you’d be 100% sure what fits you. Then order nails in your size. You’ll receive nails in your size plus an extra 2.

 

Those are the 3 best options I have for you. Option 3 being the most accurate.

HOW DO I REMOVE MY GEL EXTENSIONS?

To remove your gel extensions, cover your nails in an oil of your choice, soak your nails in warm water for 15 minutes. Once you notice lifting around the cuticle area, your nail should easily pop-off. Here is a detailed video on how to remove press on nails;
