When do your nails need an infill?

Having beautiful nails is one thing,
but coming in on time for an infill is something else.

One of the most asked question is:
When do I come back for an infill?
Infill = rebalance = removing old acrylic or gel and redo the nail, because the nail has grown out.

So when do you come back for an infill (or do your own nails at home)

2 weeks?
3 weeks?
or maybe 5 weeks?

Some people charge more if you come in later than 2 weeks.
I do not agree with this method.

And do note that this is my personal opinion!

Ofcourse there are a few people that NEED an infill at 2 weeks, because their nails grow really fast or if they suffer from "chronic lifting".

I personally say this:
You come in when you think it is necessary.
If it is 2, 3, 4 or even 5 weeks.
All they have to do is look.
Look for new growth, look for lifting and feel if they are getting too long.

Almost 4 weeks

The nail grows an average of approximately 3mm a month.
The growth is being influenced by certain activities and by internal (disease) and 
external (weather,... ) circumstances.

Nails grow faster 
*during the day
*on young age (especially between 30 & 50 years of age)
*in the summer, influenced by U.V. rays
*with men
*pregnant woman

Anyways, you have to see for yourself when it is needed to get an infill
I'd say it is necessary when:

*If your new growth area is about the same as in this picture

*If the stress area has moved too far, causing the nail to become weak and unbalanced 
Stress area
*If you are a nailbiter and you have lifting
*If you have serious lifting due to a little accident
*If your nails are starting to "hurt" or feel unpleasant 
(when the nails have grown too long in length, they can hurt because the stress area has moved too far away from it's original place)
*Or when you are tired of your design and you want a new one

So no one can really put a date on when some one needs an infill.
But mostly an infill is needed between 2 and 5 weeks.
And even more likely 3 to 4 weeks

This is what the outgrow looks like on my friend between 5-6 weeks.

If you have any questions, or you want me to make a specific post, feel free to ask :)


  1. oooh love this info hunni, its interesting to know that some salons will charge u more if u wait more than 2 weeks.. sound like money grabbers to me.

    excellent post hun ^_^

  2. Good info. Is your friends tips just blue stars in clear acrylic? Or is that a specific premixed product? I would like to find it.

    1. It's just blue glitter and I mixed it with some iridescent stars, and then mixed it with acrylic powder, but you can just do blue glitter on the nail, and then put some stars on top :)

  4. Hold out! Or maybe not necessarily! I recently had written
    to Scott’s e-mail correct originating from a unique site and also this period I didnrrrt receive
    an error message. What this means is he / she likely became the
    info your dog wished through me (account quantity, and many
    others) and now obstructed the e-mail address by having an miscalculation communication
    that suggests “Eric’s e-mail target isn't good anymore”, yet it’s in all probability operational once again. Proof is definitely I delivered an email in order to their target coming from a various place (amongst the other e-mail details) and I failed to recieve an miscalculation message… darn…tghthgthgg Jill help me personally follow my own cv as part of your organization. We've by now sent my resume on your corporation email,
    you need to I need ones immediate reply.
