Our Gel-Xtend Starter Kits have been designed specifically for at-home use, making it easy to achieve perfect nail extensions from the comfort of your own home. The kit comes complete with all the essentials needed to use our signature Gel-Xtend system, including our Pre-Sculpted Gel Extensions in Extra-Short Square, which are ideal for those with smaller nail beds looking for a subtle extension. See the list of the kit's inclusions below.

Our Gel-Xtend system uses Pre-Sculpted Gel Extensions made from a soft-gel material and pre-shaped to your selected style and length so that they're the perfect shape every time. Each box of extensions includes up to 15 different sizes to ensure the perfect fit for each nail for comfortable and long-lasting wear. Whats more, each box of extensions is enough to last about a year.

Some key benefits of our Gel-Xtend system include:

  • Strong and resilient, making them less likely to chip, break, or snap
  • More comfortable and lightweight than plastic nail tips with acrylic or SNS overlays
  • Thin and seamless for a natural appearance
  • Easy to apply, with no excessive filing or shaping required

Please note that while the Mini Flash Curing lamp included in the kit is essential for initial adhesion, a Full Size nail lamp is also required to fully cure the extensions and ensure they last for 3-4 weeks.


1 x Dehydrator
1 x Primer
1 x Gel Glue
1 x Gel Top Coat
1 x Pre-Scultped Gel Extensions (Style of Choice)
1 x Nail File: 100/180 Grit
1 x Nail Buffer Block

Step 1: Nail Prep
Trim or file your natural nails to ensure they fit nicely within the shape of your nail extensions. Use the buffer block to smooth out any rough edges and to buff the surface of your natural nail. Use a clean cloth or paper towel to wipe off excess dust.

Step 2: Sizing your nail extensions
Measure out the correct size for each nail by fitting the extension over your natural nail, ensuring that either edge of the extension meet the sides of your natural nail.

Step 3: Applying the extensions
Apply a thin layer of Dehydrator and followed with a thin layer of Primer. Then, apply a thin coat of Gel Glue to each finger on one hand and cure for 60 seconds. Next, apply a bead of Gel Glue to the underside of the Gel Extension and apply the extension to the natural nail on a 45 degree angle, lining it up about 1mm away from the cuticle, then pressing down slowly until the glue spreads to cover the entire natural nail. Hold in place and cure under the flash-curing lamp for 10-15 seconds. Repeat on each finger.

Cure the entire hand under the full-size UV/LED lamp for 60 seconds. Repeat on the other hand.

Step 1: Remove some product
For gel polish over natural nails:
File the surface the nails to remove the shine of the nail polish. If desired, trim or file off some of your nail length.

For gel extensions:
Trim off the length of the nail extensions, keeping the length of your natural nails if desired. File the surface of the nails to remove the shine.

Optional: For a shorter soak-off time, file further to remove most of the gel polish.

Step 2: Protect your cuticles
Apply cuticle oil around the cuticles and skin to prevent the skin from drying out from the gel polish remover. Alternatively, you could also use Vaseline. This step is optional highly recommended.

Step 3: Soak-off
Cut your aluminium foil into squares (approx. 8cm x 8cm). Soak 3-4 cotton balls with a generous amount of acetone or gel polish remover. Peel off portions of the soaked cotton, enough to cover the surface of your nail, and place over the nail. Wrap tightly with aluminium foil, and allow to soak for 15-20 minutes.

Step 4: Remove the polish
After soaking, gently scrape off the gel polish. It should come off quite easily without too much pressure. For any stubborn bits, soak for a bit longer until it can be easily removed. After, fuff the nail plate with the buffer block.

Wash your hands. Apply cuticle oil after reapplying gel extensions or polish.
