Apply Fast, Easy Gel Enhancements With Aprés Nails’ Gel-X

by NLS Staff | November 18, 2017

Aprés Gel-X is an alternative method to traditional liquid-and-powder acrylic or hard gel. Easy to master and non-damaging to natural nails, Gel-X Tips are reverse nail tips specially formulated to work with Aprés Extend Gel to ensure long-lasting adhesion to the natural nails. The full cover tips are strong enough to be used on their own without an acrylic or hard gel overlay, and the soft-gel formulation makes removal simple. Soak or wrap in acetone for 15 minutes and remove the product in the same way as gel-polish.
