What are Acrylic Nails?

Acrylic nails are essentially acrylic overlays. As they are more durable than other artificial nails, they are regarded as one of the most popular type of nail extension used within the industry. Acrylics are applied using a polymer powder and monomer liquid, giving rise to the industry term “liquid and powder”. This acrylic combination works to provide a long-lasting, quite natural looking fingernail for the customer.

Acrylic nails can be expected to last for up to 3 weeks. Maintenance and infill procedures will be required after that period to keep the nails looking good. Our acrylic nail classes online will instruct and guide you through all the necessary techniques required to professionally perform these nail treatments.
