Soft Gel and Polygel Extensions

Which is right for you?


Soft Gel

Soft Gel is a revolutionary product that combines the ease of press-ons with the durability of gel. It is applied as a clear tip, adhered to your natural nail with gel and then cured under a UV lamp. And that's it! No shaping or filing is needed so you can just choose your gel polish colour to be applied and you're good to go.

The great thing about Soft Gel is it requires no harsh buffing or filing of your natural nail. There are no strong odours and it can be just as durable as acrylic or hard gel. Despite their ease of application, these extensions will still last your normal three weeks or more!

Soft Gel tips are a perfect choice if you want beautiful long nails for a special occasion like a wedding or holiday without the regular maintenance. However, if you love your first set and want to continue, you can choose to either have them infilled with Polygel or your old set removed and re-applied making them a great way to begin if you want regular extensions.



Polygel is a hybrid between acrylics and hard gel. It can be used as an overlay on your natural nail or to extend the length of your nail.

Polygel requires no harsh buffing or filing of your natural nail and there are no strong odours. It sets in a UV lamp and requires surface filing to refine. You can then choose to leave them as they are for a natural look or I can apply a gel polish colour of your choice.

I would normally only recommend you start with Polygel over Soft Gel if you are a nail biter or have extremely short or damaged natural nails. Polygel is great for this as it will give flexible but strong protection for your nails to grow either to the point where we can extend or for you to grow your natural nails long and strong.
