Creating Artificial Nails:

Creating artificial nails:

Creating artificial nails involves applying enhancements to the natural nails to enhance their appearance or length. There are various methods used to create artificial nails, including:
  • Acrylic Nails: Acrylic nails are made using a liquid monomer and a powder polymer. The process involves mixing the liquid and powder to create a dough-like substance that is then applied to the nails. The mixture hardens when exposed to air, forming a durable and long-lasting artificial nail. Acrylic nails can be sculpted directly onto the natural nails or applied using tips for length.
  • Gel Nails: Gel nails involve using a gel-like substance that is cured under a UV or LED light to harden. The gel is applied to the nails in layers and cured between each layer. Gel nails tend to have a more natural appearance and are flexible yet durable.
  • Nail Tips: Nail tips are pre-made artificial nails that come in various shapes and sizes. They are attached to the natural nail using adhesive and then shaped and filed to the desired length and style.
  • Silk or Fiberglass Wraps: These methods involve using silk or fiberglass materials to reinforce weak or damaged nails. They are applied to the natural nail using a resin or adhesive and then shaped and coated with a gel or acrylic overlay for strength.
