If you have sculptured nails, overlays, or tips applied, your natural nail will continue to grow underneath the synthetic material. As your nail grows out, the area at the base of the nail that is no longer covered with the sculptured nail material will need to be filled in.
A manicure is a treatment of the hands and nails, including shaping, cleaning, and polishing of the nails. A regular manicure can help some people overcome nail problems such as nail biting, dry cuticles, and split or brittle nails.
Artificial nail tips are made of very thin plastic which is shaped to fit individual fingernails and glued into place over your natural nail. A sculptured nail product, such as acrylic, is then used to build up and even out the nail's appearance.
An overlay is a sculptured nail product that is applied directly over your own nail. While an overlay does not increase the length of your nail, it allows it to grow with added strength and reduced breakage.
A pedicure is the care of the feet, toes, and nails. It can greatly improve the appearance of your feet. Pedicures typically begin by soaking the feet in warm, soapy water for five to ten minutes.
Sculptured nails are both attractive and durable, and they are made from synthetic materials sculpted onto your own nails using a combination of acrylic nail powder and liquid.
