Acrylic nails are the most commonly known and used artificial nails. They are very popular among women who want long nails but are having difficulty growing their natural nails. This type of artificial nails is also the most widely used by women, especially those who are always on the go and want to keep their nails long.
Acrylic nails are also known for their durability. Among all nail overlays, they are the ones that can last long without a lot of maintenance and meticulous care. However, you should not be too hard on your artificial nails or else you might need a visit to your manicurist to avoid loosening and accumulation of mildew once water gets trapped in.
Acrylic nails should be applied and done by a professional manicurist. It is important that they are placed properly to make them look as thin and as natural as possible.
If improperly done, acrylic nails may look very thick and artificial. However, if properly applied, they can last really long and be very durable.
