Artificial Nails

10:00:00 AM

There are several types of artificial nails.
No matter which nail type you choose, the first session will always take some time, since the manicurist must file the whole natural nail and lay some adhesive to tighten the wrapper or the artificial nail tips to the size and the shape of the nail.
Then, in both cases maintenance is needed, although acrylic ones are more durable.
Wraps: These are basically a tissue that wraps the nail with very strong resins. The most common ones are called silk or fiberglass.
They just differ in the type of tissue used - silk nails show the texture of the material, so they must always be varnished in color, covering or disguising them properly.
In general terms, after wrapping the nail, artificial nail tips are added to enlarge them.
When wrappers are not correctly applied, they tend to lift up, especially if the manicurist used thick adhesives or resins, or put too many layers.
However, if they are properly applied, they last and give good results.

Acrylic nails: The natural nail is covered up with an acrylic border that adheres to it.
Plastic or acrylic nail tips and extensions usually have a natural color, though some of them come polished and decorated. Their use is very common for special occasions.
Artificial gel nails: These are other type of acrylic artificial nails, applied directly on your natural nails and hardened with the help of a UV light.
As acrylic nail tips sometimes look too thick, gel nails are getting more and more popular.

Apart from being lighter, there is no unpleasant odor during their application.
