The Gel X capsule application or American application is a method of applying false nails using specific capsules.

They help secure and maintain your nails while giving them a perfect finish.

The Gel X capsule application (or American application) is applied as close as possible to the base of your nails, over their entirety.

They therefore cover the entire nail and allow you to work on its shape. Thus, the result is similar to applying false nails.

When we go to a beauty salon to take care of our hands and get nail extensions done, we sometimes hesitate between 2 Styles.

If we are feeling reserved, we opt for a short extension, with filed nails, squared, with a light coat of varnish in a classic color for example.

Other times we are in a more extravagant mood, we don't want to choose a short and demure pose.

We will then opt for a longer false nail application in the shape of an extra-long stiletto for example.

Generally, an extra-long stiletto application requires the help of nail extensions via false nail application .

This is where the Gel X capsule pose (or American pose) comes into play. We will see this in the rest of our article.

Our nails don't turn into extra-long tips overnight, and even if they did, our natural nails would break after a few minutes.

Luckily, there are plenty of ways to get instant length.

For that , we can opt for stencil or classic capsule poses. Nowadays, another ineffective technique exists.

This technique is the favorite pose of celebrities and it is called the Gel-X pose (or American pose) .

More and more stars are opting for the Gel-X application (or American application) because they like to see how natural their nails look.

This also explains why it's a popular choice for celebrities like Ariana Grande, Janelle Monáe , Elle Fanning, Candice Swanepoel or Ashley Graham.

The Gel X capsule application is also a safe and healthy alternative to other nail extension techniques.

It allows for safe application, without chemicals and certifies application without sanding the nail.

Now, let's review the advantages and disadvantages of the Gel

What is the Gel-X capsule application?

The Gel X capsule application has the simplicity of a classic capsule application and the length of a false nail application.

At Sobella Paris, we recommend it to all our clients.

The Gel

Our Gel-X nail extension service uses the same materials as a gel manicure, but the technique can create length beyond your natural nails, thanks to special capsules that are filed down to blend perfectly with your natural nails.

Unlike other nail extension techniques (such as false nails for example) , the Gel-X capsule application is not only applied to the tips of the nails. Instead, it covers the entire nail from its base.

We offer different sizes of capsules, which allow us to customize your nail shape and size.

Although the Gel-X capsule comes in different shapes, we can cut and shape them as you wish.

You can also choose from short, medium, long, stiletto, American square, round, square, stiletto, ballerina, coffin, or fine shapes just as you would have done with a classic false nail application.

Once you have chosen the shape and size of your nail, they are prepared with our special technique.

The Gel-X capsule application coupled with our unique know-how helps preserve the health of your nails while giving them charm and style.

The Gel-X service by Sobella Paris fills in all imperfections, making the nail extension even stronger, similar to a classic capsule break.

The good thing about the Gel-X capsule pose (or American pose) is the natural appearance it provides.

Your nails look more natural than classic false nails or stencils.

This is partly because at Sobella Paris we are able to shape them however you want and make them as thin as your real nails.

In addition, they will be more solid than other types of poses for long-lasting hold.

If you choose Sobella Paris to take care of your nails and opt for the Gel-X technique, prepare to spend at least an hour with us, varnish application included.

How long does the Gel-X capsule application (or American application) last?

If you are looking for a nail extension technique that does not flake when you wash the dishes or that does not come off in a week, the Gel-X technique will quickly appeal to you.

Indeed, the Gel-X capsule application (or American application) is a nail extension application that stays on your nails between 6 and 12 months depending on how often you touch them up.

When installed correctly, they can last up to 3-4 weeks without any lifting, meaning there will be no raised edges or peeling.

You may notice some growth at the base of your nail after wearing the extensions for more than three weeks, but this indicates that it's time to remove them or redo your nails (more on this) .

To take care of your nails, choose touch-ups at Sobella Paris, which are done by trained professionals.

The cost of the Gel-X capsule application (or American application) is €50 with varnish application included.

Are Gel-X extensions safe?

With all nail extension techniques, there is a possibility of damage to your natural nail over time with prolonged use and/or improper removal.

Applying Gel-X capsules is very safe and can be used to preserve your nails for up to 3 weeks if desired.

However, the Gel-X technique is a safe method to lengthen your nails. 

Although we have not observed any damage caused by our Gel-X nail applications, we must not forget that this technique is not without risks and that it must be carried out by a professional . .

Removal is one of the secrets of Gel-X's success because it is done without sanding the nail, damaging it or weakening it.

Sobella Paris advice: We recommend applying after 5 or 6 applications of false nails or semi-permanent varnish in order to let your natural nails rest and breathe.

When your nails are bare, treat them with a strengthening treatment or nourishing oil.
