Acrylics are the original nail extension and continue to be a very popular enhancement, even after the surging popularity of gel extensions. It is a system every respected technician should be able to provide for their clients.
Although they are a little trickier to master when compared to applying gel extensions an acrylic nail course is an ideal follow on from gels as quite a few of the techniques are very similar to both types of extension.
Why have they become so popular? They are strong, beautiful, long lasting and natural looking to boot. They can provide an infinite number of designs and are very easy to look after.
