What are acrylic nails?
Acrylic nails are also known as fake nails, artificial nails that are glued onto the real nails. Acrylic is a durable plastic that can be formed and molded into different shapes, and the acrylic used for nail tips comes in a couple of different forms.
You can have acrylic nails at any length and at any color. You can indulge in the whimsical and have designs painted on them. You can even have artificial nails pierced and wear nail rings.
A lot of women like wearing them for various reasons. Some women feel that wearing long nails make them feel pretty and feminine, but they find that letting their real nails grow longer instead of wearing acrylic nails can be too much of a hassle.
Some women, on the other hand, wish to look their best for a certain special event or occasion, and that includes doing up their nails.
Acrylic fingernails painted with an elaborate design are an instant standout.
There are also some women who deliberately go for artificial fingernails in order to put a stop to their nail-biting habits.
Acrylic nails, after all, are not that easy to come by, and a nail-biter would definitely think twice before chewing on her exquisitely done nails.
