Why is silk or fibreglass good on thinner / damaged and weaker nails?

You are here:

Some nails are so weak they may be considered too weak to hold the usual overlays (UV Gel, L&P) . Too bendy, too fragile etc. If this is the case then a cyanoacrylate/silk/fibreglass overlay will be very gentle. It is not a known allergen, is easily and quickly removed, and may just give enough strength to these types of nails to allow them to grow. With correct preparation, they have good adhesion. They are not as long-lasting and not as strong as the alternatives but…an understanding of the system can get great results for the right client
