Cute and Weightless Nail Extensions For The Summer? Yes Please!

Getting your nails done is a unique kind of pampering we should all indulge ourselves in once in a while. If you’re anything like me, you also only stick to the basics—cleaning and polish. However, getting nail extensions and nail art has always been an intriguing idea. The creativity and personality nails can bring is surprising. Luckily, I Do Nails now offers ORLY’s newest product: the ORLY GelFX Builder in a Bottle.

Fuss-free nail extensions are the hottest trend for the summer

Unlike old-school acrylic nail extensions, this builder is a one-pot product that creates a blank canvas for your designs. After having these extensions on for a week, I can say that it’s definitely worth the try. I go to the gym every day and it doesn’t bother me during my workouts—I often forget it’s there at all. Let me show you how this magic builder is applied:

Step One: Cleaning

Of course, any nail treatment calls for a mani-pedi. This also includes buffing the nails to prepare it for the polygel builder.

Step Two: Brushing on the builder

Like I said, getting these nail extensions only takes one bottle. Brushed on like nail polish, it’s almost effortless to apply.

Step Three: Filing

Finally, the nail technician files your new nails. Just specify the nail shape you like—whether square or round. I prefer round nails myself.

This is what the nail extensions look like: clear and seemingly natural. It’s the perfect canvas for whatever nail art you want.

I went with a nude gel polish topped with gold triangle ornaments.
