Types of nail extensions
There are a few methods you can choose from when opting for nail extensions. The most common ones are:
Acrylic nail extensions
Created from a combination of a liquid monomer and a powder polymer, acrylics are a great way to get long nails. The manicurist will first glue tips on your nails to give them length and then cover them with the mixture. After being exposed to air, the mixture will harden, providing you with a chip-free layer. Acrylics can be shaped and buffed in any way you like, allowing you to truly personalize your extensions.
Gel nail extensions
Durable and long-lasting, gel nail extensions can be created in two ways. The first one is similar to the acrylic version, where the manicurist will glue tips on your nail which she will then cover with gel polish. In the second option, she will use a special form to build the nail extensions. Similarly, gel extensions can also be shaped into the desired form.
Fiberglass or silk nail extensions
This method is less common, but still you’ve probably seen it on Instagram. Here a manicurist will begin with attaching pieces of fiberglass or silk to your nails. Next, she will seal them with a dedicated glue or resin. These extensions can be then shaped and covered with a top or nail polish.
How to choose the best salon offering nail extensions in Tampa?
Let’s go back to Booksy. You see, there are two ways Booksy can help you choose the best beauty salon in your area. The first way is a feature called “Sort by.” When you’ve got your list of salons offering nail extensions in Tampa, you can sort those results.

How much do nail extensions cost?
The prices of nail extensions vary based on a few factors. First, the method you choose. You’ll encounter a different price for gel extensions and silk extensions. Aspects such as the manicurist's experience, what products she uses, and the location of the beauty salon will also contribute to the final cost.
Don’t worry, you never have to go to your appointment unaware of the price. On Booksy, you’ll see the price tag of each service listed!
