Acrylic Nails

Acrylic nails are the most popular of artificial nails and have held that position since the 1970′s. The general process of having acrylic nails done goes like this. An artificial nail is applied to your nail bed (usually sculpted beforehand to suit your nails) before being glued to it with liquid acrylic and powder. Usually it is glued to the tips of nails instead the whole nail bed. The result is a hard protective layer that can be used as a canvas if you wish to color your nails. They are pros and cons with this process as we will discover below as well
