These are also known as nail wraps. Fiberglass looks more real compared to acrylic, because they are thinner. There is a down side however because the thinner the wrap, the less rigid they are.
Certain prescription drugs such as antibiotics, hormones, and thyroid pills can affect the way the fiberglass nail performs, causing problems. People that live in warm climates, such as Florida and California, are recommended not to use fiberglass because the humidity causes a lot of lifting problems.
BELOW IS THE BASIC APPLICATION FOR FIBERGLASS NAILS.
(This is only to give you a general idea of how they are applied)
1. Remove old polish.
2. Wash hands.
3. Push back cuticles.
4. With a tip cutter shorten nails to desired length.
5. Shape tips of nails with a drill or hand file.
6. Begin filing entire nail to rebalance. This is to keep nail thin. Remove arch so new application will have a good surface to adhere to.
7. With a 120 grit file remove shine from new natural nail growth. This will ensure good adhesion.
8. With a 80 grit file do final shaping of nail and dust thoroughly.
9. Sanitize each nail, and apply resin to each nail and use activator.
10. Apply proper size fiber strip to nail and saturate it with resin and then activate.
11. Apply additional layers of fibers as needed along with resin and activate, while making arches.
12. Do final shape of nail and arches.
13. Buff for shine and smoothness.
14. Wash hands.
15. Apply base coat and polish.
16. This process should be repeated every 2-3 weeks for upkeep
