Styles of Acrylic Nails
There are a few different styles of acrylic nails that are available
to you when you go to a nail technician. The styles offer a variety of
uses that can range from fancy dress to everyday use and will make your
nails look their best, no matter what you are doing.
A basic nail overlay is when you have an acrylic overlay that is
bonded to your natural nail. This technique does not add any length to
your nail and looks as if it is your own natural growing nail, but it
