Types of Artificial Nails

Therefore, it is preferred to go to a salon for getting these nails done. Acrylic nails are filled in every two to three weeks. Also removing them should be done by a professional.
  • Sculptured Nails
    This is second category of artificial nails where in the manicurist makes use of fiberglass, gel or acrylic. After applying any of the above material, it is lengthened accordingly and metal or foil is sculpted over it. Another way of keeping these nails is to apply glue over it and then keep a plastic nail tip on it. Over this, acrylic, silk, fiberglass or gel is laid depending on the choice. The artificial tip is filed down to give a neat look.
  • Silk, Linen and Fiber Wraps 
    The pieces of silk, linen or fiber are cut into desired shapes and then pasted on the nail plate. Wraps are advantageous as they make the nail strong and also make them appear lengthy. Fiber is the best nail wrap amongst other nail wraps as it gives natural look of silk with its smooth texture. These fiber wraps are therefore great to look at and will not break that easily.
  • Gel Nails
    Gel nails were earlier made using dental porcelain gel powder but now they are made using Mylar form. They are applied and set with an aid of ultraviolet light. These artificial nails give a shining and smooth look and the greatest advantage of these nails are they can be filled less often than acrylic nails.
