Artificial nails are a favorite accessory with women who want long nails but can’t get their natural nails to grow that well. Artificial nails are more durable than natural nails and last much longer. They are an answer for people who want to have beautiful hands and perfectly manicured nails all the time. Nail extensions are also great for broken nails, special occasions, and whenever you have a yearning for an instant set of beautiful nails.
Acrylics are very popular with brides because they make their hands appear ladylike and graceful. They are usually a combination of liquid (monomer) and powder (polymer) and are probably the strongest among all the artificial nail options. They too need to be applied with finesse to appear natural and beautiful.
Gel nails are very natural looking. As the natural nail grows out, your manicurist will fill in the base and file down the artificial tip. Eventually, you will end up with just the overlay on your natural nail. Make sure that your cuticles are pushed back and that whatever old polish you have on your natural nails are removed. They are applied over the natural nail as a sort of thick paint. If applied and removed correctly, artificial nails will do little damage to your natural nails, but they won’t make them healthier. You’ll also need regular manicurist appointments to fill in the artificial nails as they grow out with your natural ones.

I’ve been in the salon business for over thirty-five years and have managed several salons including two of my own. My mother had her own salon when I was a teen and taught me to do her perm and highlights when I was in Jr. high. That was great fun for me and I’ve been working in it since. I have permanent cosmetic and massage certificates and enjoyed owning a massage therapy school for a short time. The beauty business is wonderful if you enjoy working with people and I have truly loved it, and am looking forward to many more years of experiences. [http://purebeautybiz.com]
