Fix 'n' Flash Tips Are Here! These Soft Gel Nail Extensions Are A Game-Changer

Written by: Ellie Simmons



Time to read 9 min

Gone are the days of short, stubby nails! Now, thanks to advances in the nail industry (and the Mylee team), we can all enjoy long, beautifully crafted nails in a variety of different shapes, lengths and designs with nail extensions.

Nails have never been so customisable and, what's even better, you can now create these nails yourself from the comfort of your own home.

If you're considering doing at-home nail extensions, it's key that you do your research and get clued up so you can choose the type of extension that best suits your lifestyle, habits and ideal nail look.

The team at Mylee believe there's nothing better than having strong, healthy nails that perfectly complement your everyday style, and we love using soft gel nail extensions to achieve this.

Soft gel tips are not damaging to your nails (if used and removed correctly), giving you the flexibility to craft your nails however you like.

But what are soft gel nail extensions, and how can Mylee help you achieve your nail goals?

Keep reading to find out everything you need to know - there are no secrets around here!

So, What Are Soft Gel Nail Extensions?

There's no need for supergluing on thick plastic fake nail tips anymore. Soft gel manicure extensions offer a quicker and easier solution to achieving the nail length of your dreams.

They are high-quality press-on nails made out of gel, unlike most other press-on nail extensions made from plastic.

They are also thinner than acrylics, which makes them a lot more comfortable and convenient to wear. The gel material is lightweight and flexible and won't damage your natural nails (if used correctly).

Soft gel tips are a type of semi-permanent nail extension which can last up to several weeks on your nails before needing to be infilled, replaced or removed.

They are also quick and easy to remove, unlike other methods of extending the nails, such as acrylics.  

Are Soft Gel Tips Going to Damage My Nails?

If you're worried about damaging your nails with soft gel extensions, don't be. These tips are actually designed to protect and enhance your natural nails.

As long as they're removed correctly, they will not damage your natural nails underneath.

In fact, many people find that their nails are stronger and healthier after wearing soft gel nails because their natural nails have been allowed to grow freely underneath the press-on tips and are protecting against everyday bumps.

These natural nail extensions are made from a light material that's flexible and comfortable to wear. Because they're also much thinner than acrylics, it means they put less pressure on your natural nails, limiting the room for damage even further.

As they are super flexible, they're a lot less likely to chip or snap.

Mylee Fix 'N' Flash Tips (RRP £22)

The answer to your prayers for long nails has been answered with Mylee's Fix 'N' Flash Tips, and they're better than ever.

These easy-to-apply, high-quality at-home nail extensions come in 8 different nail shapes with 12 different sizes, so that you can find the perfect fit for your nails - because we know that, in fact, one size does not fit all!

We've added 2 new shapes to our range - short coffin and short round - allowing all the short-nail lovers to get involved, too.

And although these nail tips are pre-buffed and pre-shaped, you can still file and shape them, giving you the ability to completely customise your nail look.

They're crafted to seamlessly fit your natural nail shape, and they are even snap-resistant, so no more going out with half of your nails broken off (we've all been there).

Once you have your Fix 'N' Flash Tips applied to your nails, you can create beautiful and personalised nail designs.

We recommend taking a look at our incredible range of gel nail polishes to find the perfect colours for your new soft gel nails!

When you're ready for a change, they can be removed quickly and easily by buffing and soaking your nails in our Mylee Gel Remover. 

Or you can keep them on, infill them using Builder Gel or Magic Extender Gel to keep your long talons!

How Do I Apply and Maintain My Fix 'N' Flash Tips?

Our soft gel nail extensions are incredibly quick and easy to apply, making them a fab option for beginners and pros alike.

Just follow these simple steps below...

Step 1) To start, you’ll want to size up the tips to your natural nail beds. You want the width of the tip to perfectly fit your nail bed. Too narrow and your natural nail and the tip will have a gap; too wide and it may be uncomfortable

Remember, there are 12 widths to choose from, but you can always file the side or bottom of the tip to be a perfect fit for your natural nail bed.

Step 2) Next, you'll want to prep your natural nails by pushing back your cuticles, then filing, buffing and cleansing your nails so that you have a prepped base to work with.

Step 3) Next, apply a small amount of Mylee Fix 'N' Flash Gel on your nail, as well as onto the soft gel tip contact area.

Step 4) Place the soft gel tip firmly onto your natural nail and make sure there are no bubbles underneath.

Step 5) Flash-cure your nail for 5 seconds using a Mylee LED Lamp, still pressing down onto the gel extension. Repeat this until you have all of your soft gel nail extensions applied.

Step 6) At this stage, you will need to cure all of your nails for 60 seconds - and it's as simple as that!

Step 7) You can then go ahead and buff and cleanse the tip before painting your new nails with your pick of colours and finish off with a MyGel Top Coat to seal in your design.

Removing and Infilling Soft Gel Tips

Your Fix 'n' Flash Tips will last for weeks with proper care. Then when you’re ready, use Mylee's Gel Remover to take your soft gel tips off.

Alternatively, you can keep the soft gel nail extensions on your nails and just infill them instead!

Using our new nail extension cutter, The Shortie, trim down your soft gel tips to your desired length.

Buff and cleanse your growth before applying Mylee Builder Gel or Magic Extender Gel so it blends with your soft gel nails.

When comparing soft gel nail extensions to other forms of nail extensions, such as acrylics, it's easy to see the many benefits.

Acrylic nail extensions need quite a lot of skill to do properly, which is why they're usually done by professionals in a salon. 

They're also much harsher on your natural nails and have to be done quickly before the acrylic dries.

Mylee's Magic Extender Gel allows you to sculpt and shape your own nail extensions to a T, but we know that not everyone has the time or skill to do this.

That's where our new Fix 'N' Flash Tips come in – they’re pre-shaped and pre-buffed, so all the work is done for you.

Our Mylee Builder Gel is yet another option we have for you to extend your nails at home. It’s a great option for adding strength to your natural nails, helping them to grow naturally.

And the gel can even extend your nails by creating an extension of up to 1cm. But for those of us who prefer our nails as long as our Mylee wishlist (super long), then our Fix 'N' Flash Tips are the way to go.

Summary: The Secret to Long Nails is Out!

There you have it - the secret to long and beautiful nails is soft gel nail extensions!

Mylee Fix 'n' Flash Tips are quick and easy to apply and give you the freedom to create any nail design you desire.

They are completely customisable, giving you the power to change your nails as often as you’d like. 

When you're ready for a change, simply soak your nails in our Mylee Gel Remover, and they'll easily come off.

Soft gel nail extensions give you all of the benefits of other, more harsh forms of nail extensions, just without any of the drawbacks!

What are soft gel nail extensions?

Soft gel nail extensions are a type of fake nail made from a gel-like substance that is applied to natural nails. They are thinner and more flexible than acrylic nails and you can buy them pre-shaped, or you can shape them to your desired look.

Are soft gel nail extensions damaging to my nails?

No, soft gel nail extensions are not damaging to your nails, providing that you apply, remove and maintain them correctly and with care. In fact, they can actually help to protect your natural nails from damage and give them the opportunity to grow naturally.

How do you remove soft gel nail extensions?

Soft gel nail extensions are actually very quick and easy to remove. You can soak the soft gel tips off, and they become a jelly-like texture, allowing you to gently scrape them off from your nails. You can even keep soft gel tips applied to your nails, trim them when they have grown out and infill them with Mylee Builder Gel or Magic Extender Gel.

What nail shape will suit my hands the best?

There are a variety of different nail shapes to choose from, so it really depends on your personal preference. If you have short or wide nails, then oval or almond-shaped nails might be a good option for you. If you have long and narrow nails, then stiletto or coffin-shaped nails could be the way to go. Mylee's Fix 'n' Flash Tips come with 12 different nail shapes, which you can also file down, so you are guaranteed to find the perfect shape for your nails!
