Default Acryllic Nails - 03-20-2011, 10:29 AM

I looked but I couldn't find a thread about this... So voilą!

So what's your opinion on acrylic nails?

I just got my first pair yesterday for a school dance and I LOVE them! At first I hated the, but after a while I fell in love<3

They're not really for me; I can't wear them at work, after all, and they're pretty expensive to just have on for a week. I've had them a couple of times and always applied at a salon, but for special occasions.

Here, everyone gets gel nails. Which get so expensive and ridiculous because a tonne of girls my age get them but I doubt they actually pay from them, they get mommy and daddy to. Spoiled girls...
They can be so pretty and I'd love to just get them once but I've heard you can't actually do that? Which is weird. I love the coloured ones like purple and red french tips. But I would probably just stick to white, it's more classy. :P

^^^thats weird o.O Ive never heard that you cant have them just once. I get the cheap $5 ones from Claires but they still look nice xD

My sister used to get them professionally done, but then this mold started growing under her real nail so she had to stop getting them...it was nasty.

You mean just press on nails then. Gel nails are made from something different than real acrylic nails. I don't know enough to differentiate the two though, so that's about all I can tell you from what I know haha.

If you want to keep them up you have to deal with re-growth and if it chips and such. too much to handle and too expensive for me. ):

Artificial or Acrylic nails are basically made by mixing a particular powder and liquid. Acrylic nails are best for those who are unable to grow their natural nails for varied reasons.

Silk Wraps
Wraps are pieces of silk, linen or fibreglass that have been cut to a desired shape and glued to the nail plate. This adds strength, and sometimes length, to the nail. Also though applied on top of natural nails, wraps are most commonly used to strengthen tips. Silk is the most natural-looking wrap and provides a lot of flexibility, but it is often too delicate for those with an active lifestyle. Linen is stronger, but not transparent and appears quite thick. Fibreglass provides the best of both worlds since it gives the natural look of silk and the strength of linen.

Gel Nails
Gel acrylic is a one-part system consisting of the application of a thick viscosity gel acrylic. Gel is normally 'cured' under a UV light. Do not confuse gel with traditional acrylic. Even though the two products are actually acrylic, they apply and wear differently.
