Teaching all kinds of nail planting methods

Molded planting or dual system

In mold implant method, which is an auxiliary nail implant method and is known as an easy but low-quality option, minimal contact of the nail with water is necessary.

This method is usually recommended to people who have less time to take care of their nails. But it is not recommended for people whose nails are scattered and different; Because these nails must be set in a mold and this matching may be problematic.

This planting is also called fast, 3 seconds, T, DSF, and Russian.

This planting has a smooth and shiny surface and does not need to be filed, which is one of the good features of this method. But due to its beauty, it is not used continuously because when the mold is placed, it is slightly pressed towards the cuticle, and the person's hand may get infected.

The durability of mold planting is less than other plantings

Mold planting steps:

First, apply foundation and anti-fungal, remove the lines completely.

Apply the primer and put the material into the mold, and place it on the nail with uniform pressure.

After 5 to 6 minutes, you push up from the armpits with the back of the woman and remove the mold.

At the end, you use almond oil with glycerin for vitamins.

 Nail implantation with powder is one of the main methods of nail implantation. Get to know the necessary items and tools for this work.

 Types of acrylic powder:

  •  Clear or crystalline powder 
  • A family of pink powders
  • Cover powders
  • Colored powders

method :

First, we perform a dry manicure, choose the right type, and then file the inside of it. We pour glue inside the tip line and stick the glue additions on the nail line.

 Stick the tip tightly so that no bubbles form between the tip and the nail.

We erase the tip line with a file and make it matte on the tip with a file.

 Now we apply anti-fungal, let it dry and apply primer.

Then we draw the pen into the powder in a sweeping mode

We start applying the material from the nail head

Powder implant restoration is usually necessary after three or four weeks, due to the growth of the nail and the advancement of the implant.

To begin the restoration, if gel was used for the implant and the implant is mixed, you use an electric file to remove the gel from the implant.


Gel nail implant

In gel planting, the main difference with powder planting is in the consumables used. In this method, gel materials are prepared and applied to the nail after using antifungal materials. Then the nail is placed in the UV device to dry.

The main difference here is that in gel implantation, a gel substance is used to create nails, which is prepared in a ready form. Unlike planting powder, this material is in liquid form and forms and hardens as long as it is exposed to UV light. This method is also considered because of its ease of use and less time.

 Nail planting with a former

Former is a device made of paper and installed on the nail. This device allows the nail technician to place the nail implant material on it and give the nail a new shape and design. Different dimensions and sizes are also marked on the formers, which allows the nail technician to determine the size of the nails as desired. In this method, beauty gels and different colored powders can also be used for nail implantation.

 Baby boomer nail implants

The baby boomer nail implant method, which is very popular among women with Iranian tastes, has become an attractive and special design for nails. This technique is inspired by the French French design, but in the baby boomer, the white tips of the nails are combined with a base of pink or rose colors. In this type of nail implant, the end of the nail becomes the color of the nail itself, which preserves the beauty and makes the nails look more natural. The result of this method looks more beautiful than any other type of nail implant.

It should be noted that the procedures of baby boomer implantation are the same as powder nail implantation, but here two powder colors are used for combination. This method is recommended in order to create a highlight on the nails. Baby boomer nail implant is also known as a type of highlight nail implant.

Buying nail implants

It is highly recommended to use a complete nail grafting kit to prepare the materials and tools for nail grafting, especially if you are doing this activity for the first time. A complete nail kit includes everything you need to start nailing, making the process easier and more efficient. Also, the instructions inside the kit are also very important and must be followed carefully to get a better and more fruitful result.

It is very important to check the ingredients of the powder and nail implant material and it is recommended to make sure that it contains EMA (Methyl Acrylate Ester). EMA is a material similar to dental acrylic and is also used in nail implants. To choose the best acrylic material and color, usually use well-known brands or brands you have come across in a Google search.

If you decide to buy materials individually, you may want to purchase different items. For example, use acrylic after nail growth. Therefore, you need nail tip glue and half artificial nails. You have the possibility to glue the artificial nails to the tip of the nail and then shape them to the shape and size you want. This method allows you more freedom and creativity in nail design.

Sample design tool

Sample design tool 

Nail cover powder: Normal nail cover powder does not have much effect on acrylic nails and almost preserves the natural nail color.

Liquid and acrylic powder: Liquid liquid and acrylic should be mixed together to produce powder. This compound is used as a powder material.

Container and primer: To mix ingredients, you need a primer and container. The suitable size for the primer is about 8 to 12 cm. These materials are important to maintain the adhesion and stability of the powder on the nail.

Preparation of sowing powder

You have shared important information. These things are really important. Before performing any activity, especially nail planting using powder, it is necessary to consider and test the possibility of sensitivity or allergy. But be sure to remember that these chemicals are strong and should be used with caution and following the directions for use.

Using one finger as an initial test prevents sensitivity problems and if no irritation occurs, you can continue with other fingers. Also, the importance of using antifungal medicine in the process of nail implantation to maintain health and improve nail durability should not be forgotten.

Clean and disinfect the nail before use: To start working with the nail, you must first clean and disinfect it carefully. The best way to do this is to soak the nail in pure acetone to remove any particles and dirt. Be sure not to use nail polish remover because it may thin the nails and damage them. It is very important to choose gentle and sensitive methods for the health of nails.


Cleaning and trimming the nails are important steps that contribute to a successful nail implant. Nail care is essential, especially before implantation. You can use a nail file to sort the nails. Reducing the diameter of the nails by a few millimeters will improve the shape of the nails and create a suitable surface for planting. To do this, use an electric file and cut the nails carefully.

Filing the nails with an electric file not only makes the nails tidy and beautiful, but also makes the surface of the nails rough and rough, which provides a suitable opening for nail planting. This creates better conditions for the adhesion of planting materials.



Separate the nail from the cuticle

To ensure better adhesion of artificial nails, it is necessary to press back around the nail cuticle and create an arch-like shape. This will help you completely remove the nail from the cuticle and improve the adhesion of the implant.

Using a wooden tool as an aid is suitable for this work. Prepare the nails carefully and patiently. An easier way to separate the nail skin from the cuticle is to keep the nails wet. Before use, put the nails in warm water for a few minutes to soften the skin and you can easily remove it from the cuticle. This will facilitate the process and prevent damage to the skin.

Using nail primer

Using nail primer: If you use nail primer, it is better to do it carefully and patiently. The primer is able to absorb the remaining moisture and fat on the nail. This stage is very important in nail planting, because the use of the primer must be done well so that the nail adhesion can be implemented better. Otherwise, if moisture and grease remain on the nail, the nail adhesion will not be done properly.

Washing with cotton or tissue soaked in acetone: clean the surface of the nail with a tissue or cotton soaked in acetone. This will help remove any excess particles or oil and prepare the surface of the nail for the implant.

Caution in using acidic nail primers: Be careful in using acidic nail primers. These primers contain acid and may cause skin burns. Before use, it is better to check the possibility of skin reaction and use suitable primers with the least possibility of burns.

Sticking nails

The right size for the nail: First, find the right size for the nail. If the length or tip of the nail is not suitable for your fingers, it is better to shorten them to the desired length or try another model. It is important to match the nail size with your fingers so that the end result is natural and beautiful.

Use of nail glue: Nail glue is used to stick nails. Place the nail glue on the artificial nail and stick it to the natural nail. It is important that this step is done carefully and in coordination so that the nail is attached correctly and evenly.

Holding the nail to dry: It is necessary to hold the nail for 5 seconds after gluing to let the glue dry. Do this on each of the 10 nails and then cut the nails to the desired length.

Correcting the wrong nail: If you misplace the nail or it doesn't fit properly, quickly soak it in water for a few minutes, then dry it and try again.

Using a small amount of glue: It is better to use a small amount of glue so that it does not touch the skin. This makes the nail stick naturally and permanently and creates a feeling of comfort.

Tools needed to attach artificial nails

Artificial nail pack: First, you need to prepare a complete pack of artificial nails that includes glue, nails, and buffer. This pack contains all the accessories you need to attach artificial nails.

Nail glue: use the glue in the pack. This glue is very important for sticking the artificial nail to the natural nail. Make sure that high quality and suitable glue is used to stick the nails.

Artificial nails: Choose the artificial nails that are in the pack. These nails are usually prepared in different sizes and shapes to match the size of your natural nails.

Nail buffer (file): use a buffer or nail file to dry and rough the surface of the nails. This will make the glue better stick to the nails and the artificial nail will be attached properly.

Cotton or paper towel: Use cotton or paper towel dipped in acetone to clean the nail surface. This removes possible grease and dust.

  • Pen for nail manicure

  • Some nail polish remover, preferably acetone-free

  • Some cotton or linen pad

  • Nail clipper

  • Sohan

  • nail buffer

  • nail glue

  • cotton swab

  • scissor

How to draw it:

First, place the brush in the container containing the planting material and carefully submerge it in the material. Next, take the brush out of the container, to remove bubbles or excess particles of powder from it.

After the brush is well soaked in the material, wipe the material off the brush to avoid picking up excess material. The brush is suitable for use when there is a ball of planting material at the end.

The next step is practice. Practice several times until you get the right ratio of picking ingredients. Also, the prepared liquid, which is in the form of a ball on the brush, must have a suitable concentration.

So far, we applied the planting material on the brush, and now we present important tips for brushing on the nails:

The brush should be moist and flexible, but not too wet. If there is too much liquid left, clean the brush with a tissue.

Direct the acrylic mixture towards the tip of the nail and spread it in a circular motion. Push the material towards the nail arch, but be careful not to stick to the cuticle.

Every time you put the brush on the nail and apply the powder, dry the brush. Of course, if the liquid covers the brush well and has good flexibility, you don't need to dry it.

Use a smaller brush to remove bubbles to avoid lumps or particles sticking to the material.

The work is done better with a smaller amount of material on the nails.

If you have applied the nail powder material correctly, there should be a gentle curve where the artificial nail is attached to your natural nail. That part should not create a rough surface. For nails to look like this, you may need to use more than one acrylic throat on the end of the brush.

Do not apply acrylic nail polish to the cuticle. These materials should start a few millimeters above the cuticle and then reach the nail and prevent it from reaching the skin.

Let the acrylic dry. Before the acrylic is completely applied to the nail, you should allow the material to dry on the nail for about ten minutes. If you want to make sure the material is dry, you can gently tap with the handle of the brush to make sure the acrylic is dry and the nail is ready for the next step.

The last stage of nail planting

In the last step, file the nails again and make it closer to the desired shape and image in your mind so that it fits your fingers more.

Now you can use the nail cover. It is your taste to use a colored cover or the natural color of the nails. The nail cover not only creates another surface and makes it stronger, but also makes the nails smoother and shinier.

Protect your nails. After two weeks, the nails grow normally. You can re-implant or repair the nails.

Diagnosis of fungus or infection: Be sure to note that if your natural nails are green or yellow, never proceed with nail implantation. This indicates nail fungus that needs treatment. In this case, using artificial nails may worsen the situation. To prevent fungus, use disinfecting tools when planting nails.

Nail care

Every day, pay special attention to your nails. Prevent infection by taking a few minutes of attention and doing the following steps:

  • Daily cleanliness : Wash your hands with soap and water. Then, using a nail brush, carefully clean around your nails.
  • Check and tighten : While cleaning, check your nails to make sure they are tight. If a nail comes loose, tighten it again or use new nails.
  • Drying : Dry your hands and nails carefully. Make sure all nails are completely dry.
  • Using the right materials : If a nail is loose, use the right materials. This reduces the risk of infection after nail implantation.
  • Visiting a beauty salon : Visit a beauty salon for proper repair and maintenance of implanted nails. This will help your nails to always be in perfect condition.

If you do nail planting yourself at home, pay attention to the following points:

  • Using the right glue: Use only glues for nail implants. Never bandage a broken nail.
  • Preventing infection: use the right glue and avoid dressings to cover the broken nail. If you notice signs of infection such as swelling, redness, or pus, see a doctor right away.
  • Repairing regular rounds: Repair the nail implant every 2 to 3 weeks. This will cover the empty space created under the nail implant and prevent infection.
  • Gloves for special tasks: Be sure to wear gloves when washing dishes, cleaning, and gardening. This prevents the nail from coming into contact with the detergent.
  • Use of finger tips: In places where the nail implant requires tools, use the tips of the fingers instead of the nail implant to avoid breakage and damage to the natural nail.
  • Intermittent opening of nails: To prevent natural nail breakage, open and close nails periodically and with caution.
  • Changing the nail implant: every 2 to 3 months, replace the nail implant so that the natural nail can breathe and needs care.
  • Daily care: do these things for a few days and then go back to nail care and repair.
