It is important to note that HEMA in small amounts is not harmful or dangerous. HEMA is a monomer that improves adhesion and creates a stronger, more durable hold. And Apres takes care to carefully formulate each product with just the right ratio of every ingredient. HEMA under 20% in any product is considered safe. Our original Extend Gel has less than 1%. But there are many nail professionals who prefer HEMA free products and we wanted to make that accommodation so that even more people can enjoy and use Apres products!
I do have clients who have developed reactions to other Gel-x adhesives so I was looking forward to this one working for those clients. I love the way the product soaks off but the sets don’t last longer than 5 days. Which is ridiculous because my clients sets typically last up to 4 or 5 weeks with no lifting. I’ve had to discount clients sets because of this product failing me so of course I’m not a very happy customer at the moment. Would genuinely appreciate it if the formula gets fixed and if a customer care rep from Apres could send me an email to rectify this as I have lost money because of it.
I am one of the unfortunate babes who has developed an allergy to the HEMA ingredient in gel products. Therefore, I was excited to see a HEMA-free option from Apres. I love the brand and am already familiar with the high quality products. I really don't want to give up my favorite hobby of doing my nails, so I really had high hopes this product would work. So far I have used it once and I am already pleased. Thankfully, I didn't have an allergic reaction! I was concerned since I heard that some HEMA free products don't have the longevity of regular gel products, but so far I haven't had any issues. I've had my current set on for about two weeks and have not had any lifting AT ALL. This will surely be my new go-to gel glue from now on!
Extend Gel Sensitive in Bottle Edition
The best sensitive extend gel to ever exist!!!
I really wanted this product to work as well as their regular formula. Considering how often I do my nails, using a HEMA-free product seemed like a good idea so I gave this a try.
My sets usually last 2 weeks with their regular formula. With the sensitive formula I lost half of the nails within two DAYS. I did my usual prep and priming and used my usual tips, did my usual activities. The only thing that was different was the sensitive gel formula.
I wanted to like it, I really did, but it simply doesn't work.
