The Gel X capsule pose or American pose is a false nail application method using specific capsules. They help secure and hold your nails while giving them a perfect finish.

the Gel X capsule application (or American pose) is applied as close as possible to the base of your nails, on their entirety. They therefore cover the entire nail and allow you to work on its shape. Thus the rendering is similar to the false nails pose.

When we go to a beauty institute to take care of our hands and do nail extensions, we sometimes hesitate between 2 Styles. If we feel in a reserved mood, 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 pose in the shape of an extra-long stiletto for example.

Typically, an extra-long stiletto pose requires the help of nail extensions via a false nail pose. This is where the Gel X capsule pose (or American pose) comes into play. We will see it in the rest of our article.

Our nails don't turn into extra long spikes overnight and even if they do, our natural nails would break within minutes.

Luckily, there are plenty of ways to achieve instant length. For this, we can opt for chablon or classic capsule poses. Nowadays another not effective 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 pose (or American pose) because they like to see how natural their nails look. It 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 to have a safe pose, without chemical product and certifies a removal without sanding the nail.

Now, let's review the pros and cons of the Gel X capsule pose

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 X capsule technique (or American pose) is made of flexible capsules that are applied directly to your natural nail and can be cut and shaped according to your preferences.

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 match perfectly. with your natural nails.

Unlike other nail extension techniques (such as false nails, for example), the Gel-X capsule application does not only apply 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 the shape of your nails and their size. Although the Gel-X capsule pose comes in different shapes, we can cut and shape them however you like.

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

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 bringing them charm and style.

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

The great thing about the Gel-X capsule pose (or American pose) is the natural look it provides. Your nails look more natural than classic false nails or with a stencil.

This is partly due to the fact that at Sobella Paris we are able to shape them as you wish and make them as thin as your real nails.

Plus, they'll be stronger than other types of poses for long-lasting hold.

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

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

If you're looking for a nail extension technique that won't chip when you wash the dishes or peel off in a week, the Gel-X technique will quickly win you over.

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

When properly applied, they can last up to 3-4 weeks without any lifting, which means 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, prefer touch-ups at Sobella Paris, which are done by trained professionals. The cost of the Gel-X capsule pose (or American pose) is 50€ with the nail polish 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.

The Gel-X capsule application 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 risk and that it must be carried out by a professional. .

The removal is one of the secrets of the success of Gel-X because it is done without sanding the nail, nor damaging it or weakening it.

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

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