Acrylic nails are a common enhancement. One benefit of acrylic nails is that they’re quite strong, they won’t chip and you can choose them in a variety of colours and styles. Acrylic nails are one of the best enhancements for your nails if you’re quite hard on them. Acrylic nails enhancements are made by gluing a tip onto your natural nails or by sculpting. The acrylic powder is mixed with a liquid to create an overlay that’s placed on top of natural nails.  You can paint, wear French tips and airbrush designs on artificial nails.  They can be worn long or short and can also be filed into square, round or pearl shapes.


Acrylic Sculpting is where the extended free edge is created out of pure Acrylic, so there's no gluing or blending of tips. The length and shape of the nail is sculpted with your brush.  Sculpted nails are in demand by the more discerning customer and command top prices in the salon.


  • Acrylics are considered the hardest and most durable of all artificial nail methods
  • Acrylic nails are the most common and least expensive due to their popularity.  Most salons offer this service and many specialize in Acrylic nail applications
