Acrylic nails are an artificial nail that we build to give the illusion that you have a long beautiful free edge. For people that have weak, ridges or split nail that cannot grow any decent length this is the alternative to beautiful nails.
Acrylics did have a bad reputation but with proper application and the non use of electric drills they can look as natural as any natural nail.
Tips are applied and cut to your preferred length and acrylic is applied over the entire nail to provide stability. Infills and re balance should really be done every 2-3 wks, this is basically infilling an area that has grown of your natural nail plate and re adjusting the rest of the acrylic/nail. We have either a WHITE FRENCH tip that gives a permanent French manicure look or we have a CLEAR TIP that you choose what you want done with, Nail art, Shellac or just the natural look!
Acrylic Overlays are just Acrylic used over the customers natural nail to give it more strength, usually the nail is quite long anyway for this technique, just used for extra durability.
