During a nail refill, the top layer of the artificial nail is filed down to create a rough surface for the new product to adhere to. A new layer of acrylic or gel is applied to the area where the natural nail has grown out, blending it with the existing nail extension to create a smooth, even surface. Finally, the nails are shaped and buffed to the desired length and shape before applying a fresh coat of nail polish or gel.
Nail refills are typically recommended every two to three weeks, depending on the rate of nail growth and the type of product used. Regular nail maintenance can help to prevent lifting and breakage, keeping the nails looking healthy and polished for longer periods of time.
