False & acrylic nails

To boost the length of your nails, false nails (or acrylic nails) are your answer to provide the extensions you want. So what's the best way to attach and wear false nails?

Acryclic nails are attached over the top of your natural nails with 'glue' - which means that for health reasons there is a maximum time to for wearing them. So what if you've fallen in love with the look of yours and can't bear the thought of going without them? Not to worry. The good news is, that with new innovations in acrylic nails, you can now wear your false nails longer and more frequently before with just a few simple tips!

If you're worried about the health of your own nails, the first thing to remember is to make sure that you remove them at least once a week, allowing your nails to breath. If you're image conscious, why not pick a day where you're unlikely to have any social or work commitments, and treat yourself to an at-home spa day!

Because of product innovations, the glues used to fasten the fakes onto your hands is gentler than it used to be, meaning it's less damaging. You can even get double-sided tape instead of the glue, which is even gentler. If you do choose to use glue, make sure you use an acetone-free remover to get rid of any left-over glue.

If despite these tips you're still concerned about potential damage, why not invest in a set of fibreglass fakes or extensions. These leave most of your own uncovered and therefore able to breathe. And because they lie flatter than the more common kind, they look even more natural!

Why not give them a go, and love your falsies in a worry-free way!
