Women are an acclaimed symbol of beauty. They do not miss out a single chance to look beautiful. Nowadays there is a new thing that is turning the female lot maniac – acrylic nail.
Acrylic nails are artificial nails that are pasted onto natural nails. They are made by mixing a specific powder with a liquid. There can be two types of liquid in the making; Ethyl Methacrylate, also known as EMA and Methyl Methacrylate (MMA). The safest and the highest quality of nails are made by EMA. They are relatively flexible and longer lasting as compared to those made by MMA; that are a cheaper option.
Many would think that acrylic nails are a new emerging fashion. However they were there from centuries. Egyptians were the pioneers to introduce artificial nails. To them it was a symbol of wealth as well as an exquisite charm. In our times, acrylic nails are used for more than one reason. People who have brittle and weak nails usually go for acrylic nails as they are made of resilient material. Moreover those who are tied up in the habit of nibbling nails also opt for acrylic nails because they are hard to chew off. Addition of a new layer of nail strengthens the already existing one. Acrylic nails are also the best solution for those who fancy long nails and are unable to grow their natural ones.
Long nails are absolutely alluring. They are an ideal element for a wedding or an occasional function. Nevertheless many young girls wear them on regular basis. Acrylic nails also brought with them fine-looking nail art and French manicure, especially for wedding and special occasions. Women especially go to nail technicians to get their nails imprinted with beautiful designs or imbedded with tiny gems that are only accentuated on acrylic nails. Few might consider piercing that is only possible in case of acrylic nails because they are hard and strong and will not chip off while piercing.
Besides all the embellishments, technicians suggest that acrylic nails should be cared like natural nails. It is better for the nails to avoid contact with water for a longer period of time. Otherwise the water may seep through and cause infection. In addition to this, sometimes a space might build up between the artificial and the natural nail if it is knocked causing bacteria and fungus to take birth. In order to avoid such detriments it is recommended that rubber gloves are used while dish washing. However quality nails can prevent this damage. Therefore the nail technicians recommend the customers to go for EMA because of its fine quality. Whereas, MMA can cause skin irritation and irregular nail growth.
A typical nail care service takes about an hour and maintenance takes around fifteen minutes. The process is not very expensive and acrylic nails are also cost effective. Once the nail care is done, nails are all ready to be adorned and pierced (if wanted) with beautiful design and spangling gems and trinkets.
