Different nail application techniques

On Acrylic or UV gel, you can adorn your nails in different techniques. In this article, Maryton nail supply will show you the different nail application techniques. Just keep reading!


Acrylic system is the method which consists of monomer liquid and polymer powder. The mixture of these two components constitutes the resin. The resin is sculpted directly onto the natural nail using a natural bristle brush.

There are different shades of monomers and polymers that stylists can mix to give natural effects or create small works of art in Nail Art. These different shades are available as standard, such as Pink, Natural, Clear or White. There are also colored powders or liquid dyes to give multitudes of reflections.

The acrylic system requires no lamp, no energy consumption, no bulb replacement, no cleaning solvents. In addition to this, the ratio of product consumption per resin installation is very low, making the acrylic system extremely cost effective.

UV gel

UV gel is the method which consists of a gelatinous substance and a light source emitting ultraviolet rays. The gel catalyzes under the effect of exposure to UV.

The UV gel system generally consists of different layers, giving a strong and uniform system: the base for adhesion, the Builder for construction and the top for the glossy finish. The catalyzation of these three layers forms a solid nail.

Colored gels allow you to obtain natural or decorative effects. There are also different categories of colored gel such as French gel, for creating “French Manicure”, camouflage gels which serve as foundations, colored gels which are applied to color the nails or create Nail Art.

Hoping that this article has pleased you and will give you ideas! In addition, I recommend investing in some professional manicure kits to care for your nails.
