Our Opinion


Here at The Parent Game, we know a thing or two about keeping our nails looking fabulous. And let us tell you, we’ve found the holy grail of nail extensions – soft gel nail extensions. Not only are they super trendy, but they’re also durable and long-lasting. So, if you want to rock the best nail extension ever, keep reading for our step-by-step tutorial.

Step 1: Prep Your Nails
Before applying any nail extensions, it’s important to prep your nails properly. Start by filing your nails to your desired shape and gently pushing back your cuticles. This will create a smooth base for the gel extensions.

Step 2: Apply Base Coat
To ensure the longevity of your nail extensions, apply a thin layer of base coat to each nail. This will help the gel adhere to your natural nail and prevent any lifting or chipping.

Step 3: Choose Your Soft Gel Extensions
There are so many options when it comes to soft gel extensions – from natural nude shades to bold and glittery designs. Choose the color and style that speaks to you and start applying them to your nails.

Step 4: Shape and Cut the Extension
Using a sharp pair of scissors, trim the gel extension to your desired length and shape. This step is crucial to ensure your nails look polished and professional.

Step 5: Cure Under LED Lamp
Once you’ve applied the gel extensions to all of your nails, cure them under an LED lamp for the recommended time. This will harden the gel, making it durable and long-lasting.

Step 6: Apply Top Coat
To seal the gel extensions and give them a glossy finish, apply a top coat to each nail. This will also help protect the extensions from everyday wear and tear.

And there you have it – the best nail extension ever, courtesy of soft gel nail extensions. With our step-by-step tutorial, you’ll have fabulous nails that are sure to turn heads. So go ahead, treat yourself to the ultimate nail upgrade and rock those soft gel extensions like a boss!
